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.

Just wanted to touch on the pay retention. I know 5 people that moved from gs11 to gs7 or ir11 to gs7 RO's. You won't lose money, they can offer you up to 150% over gs7 step 10. It happened with me. Confirm your pay before your start date.

Well I can answer part of that with certainty.

You will have and on-the job instructor (OJI) for 1 year who will revaluation everything you do and help you learn how to work cases. Your OJI will be an experienced RO (FYI I am an OJI). They’ll go to the field with you help your through everything to make you a functional RO after the training.year is over.

All in person training for FY 2021 is cancelled, so if you state ibefore sept 30,2021 you will be trained using Skype and zoom with instructors.

When they resume in person training you will fly out of your POD several times to train at one of the 7 service centers

There is no logic RO which center you go to. I live in Florida and am 2 hours from Jacksonville. When I started I had to go to Kansas City for 2.5 months. But they’ve also changed the time away from home.

I have no idea when in person training is going to resume.

Wow! Things are moving after all!

Although each POD will move at their own pace, interview at different times.

Nonetheless, it's good news!

Thanks for letting us know!

I applied for Sacramento and took the test a few weeks back, just waiting to hear something at this point.

I wonder how this impacts potential external applicants :(

Don't get discouraged. Whenever there are internal/external announcements for the same position, they always interview internals first.

They usually hire from each announcement, a mix of both for the next class...

Be patient.

They interview internals first. (We can debate the merits of that).

Nothing. And I mean nothing happens fast at the IRS.

If you want to work here get use to it
