Types of Tax Auditors


Tax auditors can either be internal, external or government auditors. Internal auditors are employed to conduct audits and perform other accounting functions within a company. They can help identify fraud, tax errors and mismanagement of funds. External auditors are impartial third-parties. They help their clients file tax forms and educate employees on tax advantages. Government auditors are employed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). They conduct random audits for companies, especially those suspected of tax evasion or fraud.


How to Become a Tax Auditor


Those who want to become tax auditors should undertake a bachelor’s degree course in accounting. An accounting degree enables students to learn a variety of topics related to accounting, including tax laws, fraud detection and auditing. Those who graduate with associate degrees can also qualify for some entry-level jobs under the supervision of an experienced and licensed auditor.


In addition to a degree, the federal government requires tax auditors to have a CPA certification. The CPA certification exam is administered by the state boards of accountancy. Applicants need at least a degree to qualify for the test. However, some states allow work experience as a substitute for academic requirements. CPA holders must pursue continuing education in order to maintain their CPA credential.
