- The Dept. of Taxation was created by the Reorganization Act of 1927 in response to a need for a central authority for tax assessment and administration. The department replaced the State Tax Commission (formerly called the State Advisory Board on Taxation, 1915-1916, and the State Tax Board, 1916-1926) which had been run by the governor, auditor of public accounts, and full-time chairman appointed by the governor. The Dept. of Taxation was formed to administer and operate the state's general fund and to assist local governments in the areas of state and local taxation. Revenue projections and taxation policies are reported to the Executive branch of state government to assist the state government in planning and budgeting. The department was run by the state tax commissioner who is appointed by the governor. On March 1, 1928, the department assumed the function of maintaining the tax records which previously been under the auspices of the auditor of public accounts, including land, personal property, and license taxes. Although independent officials, the local commissioners of revenue and treasurers work closely with the department. Actions of these officials in regard to funds destined for the state's general fund are reviewable by the Dept. of Taxation.
