They must exercise independent judgment and initiative in conducting field audits of various industries. They interact with the public, attorneys, accountants, and other professionals, as well as, fellow auditors, revenue staff, and management. Work methods are established in accordance with tax laws and division requirements. Employees must exercise considerable independent judgment and initiative in conducting complex field audits. Auditors employed by the Montgomery County Commission predominantly conduct audits for all county taxes administered by Montgomery County Tax and Audit. Auditors employed by the City of Montgomery audit for city sales and business taxes and city business licenses. At times, auditors may participate in coordinated or joint audits with auditors working with other taxing jurisdictions.  The difference in the Senior Revenue Auditor and the Revenue Auditor is that the senior position will be assigned the most complex cases.  Additionally, the Senior Auditor will train new auditors and assist out in the field with moderately complex cases assigned to the Revenue Auditor.  The Senior Revenue Auditor reports to the License and Revenue Supervisor (city) or Assistant Revenue Manager (county).
