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 believe you mentioned before that you told your HR that you hadn't received your RA TO and then received a contact number - do you think that sped up receiving your TO for you?

I'm honestly not sure. I know I was super irritated when I started work this week and saw a response to my work email when my message specifically said I would be on vacation. Still no FO, and starting to question RA from the general feeling in the building. They seem to be miserable upstairs, other than the one that is a dead ringer for an Chris Farley as Matt Foley, personality and all. If he adjusted his belt or talked about his van, I would've lost it.

Yikes. I haven't been to any of the tege offices so I have no clue how it's like for them in my building. I'm slightly worried that I'll regret it if I move in the future.

If anyone else is trying to knock out the required accounting courses for Revenue Agent, i've found online credit-by-exam providers for almost all of the required courses. The one hold out was Auditing. Usually it's only offered as upper division so you can't find it at a typical community college. I did find one community college out of Illinois though. They charge $136 per credit hour and have an online class starting up in January...
