The Taxation Branch was established in 1957 under the newly apointed Deputy Commissioner of Taxation.

By 1967 the Taxation Branch was the predominant tax collection agency in the State.

In 1978 the Head of the Taxation Branch became Commissioner of Taxes. During the 1980's the Branch became known as the State Revenue Office (SRO). This term continued to be used after it became the Revenue Branch in 1994 despite the SRO not appearing as such in Treasury's Annual Reports.
