expect from any given division, bureau or office.
The Taxation and Revenue
Department, charged with the task of collecting tax dollars and
distributing them according to state law, answers to the Governor as
part of the executive branch of state government. It administers
taxation, revenue and motor vehicle laws passed by the Legislature and
signed by the Governor. The Department’s chief executive officer is the
Secretary of Taxation and Revenue, a cabinet-level position.
The Taxation and Revenue Department
(TRD) administers many tax programs, including property tax on a state

that those who break the law are accountable to the state. It also
administers driver’s licensing and motor vehicle registration laws. The

Administrative Services Division (ASD);
Information Technology Division (ITD);
Property Tax Division (PTD);
Tax Fraud Investigation Division (TFID);
