To become this officer firstly you have to clear the SSC CGL examination. Staff Selection Commission conducts the combined graduate level (CGL) examination for the recruitment into various government departments. The appointment of income tax inspectors is also done via the SSC CGL examination.
The salary or the income of an income tax officer depends on the place he is posted and various other circumstances. The in-hand salary if an income tax inspector lies in the range of 57,000 to 66,000.
