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.

Yah I mean not a terrible problem to have, but my firm does annual reviews in Dec which comes with a bonus (which we have to pay back if we leave within a year). Gonna be an awkward conversation if I say no thanks and have to explain why.

Well my timeline got moved up! I was informed yesterday that I need to report for the 11/21 SABT class if I wanted to transfer over. No other verified SABT classes yet except this one. So off I go to FLETC for all the holidays and much of early Spring. I’m just happy to have a class date. Starting at my field office (POD) on 11/13.

11/17-Applied for Lateral Transfer
01/18-Interviewed
07/18-Notified of Approved Lateral (email)
09/18-Received TO (email)
11/18-Received FO (email)
11/18-Starting at POD
11/18-Attending SABT

14 years as an 1811 in a non-Treasury OIG. Staying in current POD.

Wishing you all continued encouragement!!!

Congrats to those who are receiving reporting dates.

Would you mind updating the Google Doc when you have a moment?

Thanks

So I’m the lucky winner of an audit! Yay! It’s for one tax year, but the reporting location is almost 3 hours away (it’s not like I’m not in a big city) and it’s scheduled for 8 days after I report for SAIT. Hmmm??? Guess I’m making a call on Monday...My husband is going to LOVE this!

I reached out to HR this week. I cleared medical but they didn't realize they never sent me my e-qip or scheduled me for fingerprinting. Doing those this week.

Be prepared for your audit to be expanded to at least 2 years. It may not happen, but if there's something you deducted on your return in the audit year that isn't deductible, they can go back and look at prior years to see if you did the same thing and audit those years, too. They won't go past 3 years unless you did something really egregious (which I would not expect).

You can work with the RA (or TCO, most likely if they are making you drive to them) that is in charge of your audit and move the audit to a date that doesn't conflict with training.

Good luck! The audit really isn't that bad if you have all of your documents together.

I was able to reschedule the audit to a closer location and before I leave for training. Thanks for the advice!

I received this email from my mentor on 11/5 about start dates and on-boarding:
***
It appears that there was a delay in clearing employees; however HCO is expecting to clear 22 more tentative selectees this week. Further, HCO is expected to onboard these new hires to the local Field Office for an anticipated start date of either November 13th or November 26th.
***
I was not one of the 22; is anyone on this forum one of the 22?

From a private message I received (who can't post to the forum for some reason):
***
I received an email from my mentor on 11/10 that stated "Strategy has notified us that the rest of our new hires (for the Boston office) should finish pre-clearance in the next few weeks with likely onboard dates of 12/9, 1/6, or 1/20. These individuals will likely have FLETC class dates in March or June. OTJ group assignments to come next week."

I have not heard anything from HR since I sent them an email on 10/19 so any news is good news in my book! Hope this helps.

I received similar news. I was contacted last week and was told I had cleared all pre-employment checks and that I should be hearing something soon. Hopefully things start clicking for everyone else now too.
