    Income tax officer and the sales tax officer are different as both deals in different areas of taxes. Income tax officer are the central government employee so all the rules and regulations of central government applied here. Even in this you can be transferred to any part of the India. Sales tax comes under the territory of state government, so the sales tax officer appointed here is confined to the particular state. For the income tax officer, you can apply for the Combined graduate level (CGL) examination and for sales tax officer respective state commission notifications needs to be noted.

    Dear Aspirant,

    Income tax officer has to work under Income Tax Department which comes under central government.The appointment is made through staff selection commission & has to qualify combined graduate level competition.There is a department in the central govt. which looks after the tax to be collected from the individual on its income either from salary or agriculture or business or combined there of under the Income tax Act 1961

    The grade pay for Income tax officer is Rs.4600 & pay band is Rs.9300-34800

    There are sales of products in every state & tax on the sales of the products are to collected from the manufacturer & sales agency.These works are looked after by sales & commercial Department.There is a post of sales tax officer which has the duty to look after the work of sales tax.The appointment is made through state public service commission & pay ban & grade pay is same as Income tax officer.

    it is good to have either of the above said post.

    Thanks & good luck.
