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.

Is there a good chart somewhere that compares GS to IR pay scales? Or just some sort of easy conversion? Not the pay rates, just the grade number.

I'm on the GS scale now, but am considering a couple positions in the IR scale. The problem is that you can only apply to jobs at (or one level above) your current grade.

My understanding was that they are not the same and the IR number does not equal the identical GS number.

IR-1 = GS14/15 (Senior Management report to SES)
IR-2 = GS12/13 (Department Head report to SM)
IR-3 = GS11/12 (Department Head report to SM)
IR-4 = GS14 First Line (Groups that contain working grades equal or below GS-13) i.e. Special Agents, Revenue Agents, etc)
IR-5 = GS13 First Line (Groups that contain working grades below GS-12)
IR-6 = GS12 First Line (Groups that contain working grades below GS-11)
IR-7 = GS11 First Line (Groups that contain working grades below GS-9)
IR-8 = GS9 First Line (Groups that contain working grades below GS-8)

Management is groomed from within at IRS. What jobs are you looking at and I can give you some insight.

In CI Management progresses GS-13 (management candidate, FLRP, ALP, etc) to IR-4 (first line) to GS-14 (senior staff) to SM

Thanks. I'm not looking at anything specifically that's posted right now. But, sometimes one comes up that looks like it might be interesting.

Scout,

Hoping you can shed some light on a couple related things. I am new to federal pay scales, and I have recently been looking at three different job listings, with slight confusion. They are all Supervisory IT Specialist listings, but each at a different grade (IR-2210-01, IR-2210-03, and IR-2210-04). Counterintuitively, the opening with the highest salary range is the IR-2210-03 listing. Why would this be the case?

I am a former Marine Corps officer. I served as a platoon commander, communications officer(IT project manager), and company commander. I recently left active duty, as a Captain, and I am now half way into an MBA program. Based on what you know, how would this affect my salary if I were to go to work for the IRS? What grade would I likely be fit for in the "IR" scale?

While I'm not in the IRS, I would venture to assess your equivalency to be an IR-2210-07 or IR-2210-03 using the above table and the Navy's Comparison of Military and Civilian Equivalent Grades. But your VEOA status would allow you to apply for an IR-2210-06 or IR-2210-02 merit promotion announcement.

Best regards,
Dave
