Thomas de la Condamine was appointed as the Collector of the Internal Revenue on 7 April 1827. The "Quit Rents and Monies paid for land purchased from the Government had previously been collected by a Clerk in the Office of Surveyor General". The new Collector of the Internal Revenue allowed the Surveyor General to be a check on the collection process instead of exercising a day to day responsibility.
Between 1827 and 1836 revenue, except that from customs duties and court fees, was collected by the Collector of the Internal Revenue. This office was abolished on 4 January 1837 with its business becoming the responsibility of the Colonial Treasurer. (3)
