General Description
Year History
1947 When Taiwan was freed from Japanese rule, we took over the tax section in the general administration department of Taipei City State, and we were renamed Taipei County First Revenue Service Bureau and Taipei County Second Revenue Service Bureau. In January 1947, we assumed the name of Taipei County Revenue Service Bureau under which were seven branch offices in Haishan, Yilan, Luodong, Ruifang, Tamsui, Wenshan, and Xinzhuang.
1950 In November 1950, we were ordered to revert Luodong and Yilan branches to Yilan County to form Yilan County Revenue Service Bureau, abolish Haishan branch, rename Wenshan branch Xindian branch, and rename Xinzhuang branch Sanchong branch. We were reassigned to Taiwan Provincial Government, Finance Department. In January 1952, we were assigned to Taipei County Government while taking order also from Taiwan Provincial Government, Finance Department. Taipei County was vast, it bordered Taipei City, it enjoyed rapid industrial development, and it saw population growth year after year. To make our services more accessible to tax payers, we opened a Zhonghe branch in June 1979 in Zhonghe City, a Xinzhuang branch in May 1991 in Xinzhuang City, a Xizi office staffed with a temporary task force in September 1992, which we elevated to Xizi branch in December 2000 based on the authority given in the Organizational Rules of Taipei County Revenue Service.
1952 In January 1952, we were changed to an agency of Taipei County Government. We organized according to the Organizational Rules of County and City Revenue Services in Taiwan. The responsibilities of each section were as follows. The first section handled business taxes, stamp taxes, security trading taxes, income taxes for for-profit entities. The second section handled land value taxes, land value increment taxes, farm taxes, deed taxes, fees on benefit received from construction, and house property taxes. The third section handled commodity taxes, catering and recreation taxes, slaughter taxes, and vehicular usage license taxes. The fourth section handled tax registry management, taxes owed, distribution of (current) taxes, and management of documents that the agency has issued. We established the fifth section in 1962 to handle aggregate income taxes, estate taxes, and gift taxes.
1987 In January 1987, we were ordered to organize by function, so we changed our organization from by tax type to by function and established the following 8 sections. (1) double checking section (2) tax services section (3) industrial and business taxes section (4) property taxes section (5) consumption taxes section (6) auditing section (7) electronic operations section (8) legal section. We also had 7 branch offices. According to the Organizational Rules of Taipei County Revenue Service, we established the following sections under this bureau: (1) tax services section (2) industrial and business taxes section (3) property taxes section (4) consumption taxes section (5) electronic operations section (6) legal section (7) auditing section (8) secretariat. We also had 7 branch offices.
1992 National taxes and local taxes were separated on September 1, 1992. Ministry of Finance established its northern, central, and southern national taxes bureaus to handle national taxes. County and city revenue service bureaus transferred their business and personnel for national taxes to national offices, and this bureau took on the responsibilities of handling local taxes, including business taxes, stamp taxes, vehicular usage license taxes, farm taxes, land value taxes, land value increment taxes, house property taxes, entertainment taxes, and deed taxes.
1999 After Act Governing the Allocation of Government Revenues and Expenditures was amended, promulgated, and took effect, business taxes were changed to be national taxes on July 1, 1999. These taxes were levied by this bureau on behalf of the national authority. The national tax bureaus took over the levying and administration of these taxes on January 1, 2003.
2004 In response to the transfer of work for business taxes, on April 7, 2004, based on the Organizational Rules of Taipei County Revenue Service we reorganized to include 5 sections and 4 offices: (1) planning service section (2) property taxes, first section (3) property taxes, second section (4) legal section (5) information technology section (6) administrative office (7) personnel office (8) ethics office and (9) accounting office. We also had seven branch offices: Sanchong, Xinzhuang, Zhonghe, Xindian, Tamsui, Xizi, and Ruifang.
2007 According to tax types and in response to people’s demands, this bureau reorganized into 6 sections and 4 offices: (1) planning service section (2) land taxes section (3) house property taxes section (4) consumption taxes section (5) legal section (6) information technology section (7) administrative office (8) personnel office (9) ethics office and (10) accounting office. We also had seven branch offices: Sanchong, Xinzhuang, Zhonghe, Xindian, Tamsui, Xizi, and Ruifang.

On October 1, 2007, this bureau was reclassified from a level 1 to a level 2 organization (or a level 1 organization under the Finance Department), but its jurisdiction and business remained unchanged.
