Internal Revenue Service

As a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and as one of the world's most efficient tax administrators, the IRS role is to help the large majority of compliant taxpayers with the tax law, while ensuring that the minority who are unwilling to comply pay their fair share. (Source: www.irs.gov)

This forum will allow you to share and ask job-related questions about this bureau. This is NOT the place to ask tax questions.

I didn’t get one this time. Although I did resubmit my application to make adjustments to location selection and I did receive an email confirmation that the assessment was already complete.

I received the e-mail stating I am tentatively eligible for GS 7/9. Am I safe to assume the KASE is next, or do we get referred and then take the KASE exam, if anyone happens to know?

Did you take the online simulation yet? I don't know how far you are in the process.

First step application. You are determined eligible based solely on the responses you provided on the online application. Then you are invited to online test/simulation. If you pass that part, your supporting documents are reviewed to ensure you are eligible. A lot of people without the 15 accounting credits are disqualified during this review. If you are deemed eligible you are invited to take the KASE.

Thank you! Yes, I took the online test/simulation already. I never received any indication that I passed, other than recently receiving the tentatively eligible e-mail. From what I gathered from previous posts, the KASE comes next, so I was unsure on when to expect that.

This time is different then in the past. In the past you received an email that said you passed the online assessment. The email from that said you passed the assessment and the next step was a review of your resume and transcripts to determine if you meet minimum specialized experience or education qualifications as described in the vacancy announcement.

Assuming that the email that went out means you passed the online assessment, the next step will be the review by an HR specialist. You'll then receive an email letting you know that you meet the basic qualifications after their review. Once you get that, you're eligible for the KASE and a separate email will come to schedule that. Then it's a waiting game to get the results and your final determination before being referred for an interview.

I took the test in 2019 and scored Cat A. There's no studying needed. Just show up and take it. The test material can't be discussed but I assure you just relax and show up.

I am currently GS11, step 2 Revenue Agent for the IRS. I will receive my GS-12 in September. This posting was only for GS7/9. I looked and GS12 in my area starts at $82,601 but a GS9-step 10 only makes $74,048.00. So I guess my question is, if I get my GS-12 before I receive an offer for this posting, how high can I negotiate my salary. Would the GS9, step 10 be the highest I could get and I would just have to take that huge pay cut? can I negotiate to at least get my GS11 faster than 52 weeks?

Are you including LEAP? Because the salary for GS-9, step 10 with LEAP would be $92,560.

I wasn't including LEAP, but now that brings me even more questions. If GS12-1 is $82,601.00 and a GS9-6 is $66,453.00 but with LEAP is $83,066.25, would they put me as a GS9-6 or a GS9-10? Also, do you get LEAP and Locality Pay while at FLETC?

I believe, but am not certain, they’d match your salary before considering LEAP. I was an external hire so I didn’t encounter this issue.

You get locality of your POD and LEAP while in FLETC

Yes, that's correct. I have a former SA in my office that left CI after a year, they weren't a good fit. They were a GS-13 in the IRS when hired for CI, so they received matching GS-13 pay plus LEAP.
