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.

Hey all,

I saw a few of you have start dates in December and January. I don’t know if that means field office or FLETC but if you end up here (FLETC) in the next few months shoot me a PM and we can meet when you get here.

Currently classes are single and double bunked, and hotelling. Luck of the draw.

The funeral for 41, the continuing resolution issue, and the holiday season are causing administrative nightmares, so hopefully those waiting for final offers will get that resolved soon.

I will say this, if you’re not already at a decent level of fitness, start. Calisthenics, running, weights, whatever you choose, start. It’ll make life easier, especially here.

Homer had told me early last week to expect my FO last Thursday or Friday, but I haven't heard anything since then. Has anyone spoken to him more recently and heard anything?

I just received my firm offer. Am I the only one without a mentor?

Hey all,

I have been lurking around this forum for a while now. I received my firm offer last month, and I will report to my POD next month (1/7/19). I just wanted to get it out there and I hope to meet some of you at FLETC. Good luck to us all!

Depends on who’s considered essential and non-essential (or whatever phrase they’re using.) HR function might stop.


Senate is pushing a CR today through Feb 8 so hopefully that’ll buy some time.

Should (hopefully) have a budget by then, but I can't lie I'm wondering the same

CI employees are working. Trainees at FLETC will be shut down I am told. Not sure if that is for CITP and SAIT or just SAIT. I assume those shut down will be sent home. Once home I wonder if they will be considered excepted employees or not. For those of you new to this sort of thing, my apologies. Comes with the territory.

I have not heard anything about my 1/7 start date. After I received the firm offer I did not receive any further communication.

Assuming everyone else also heard, but 1/7s don't start until there's a budget. Here's to hoping the "months and months" comments aren't accurate
