This would be a dream come true for me so I'm really hoping I get an FO soon. Any ideas on the timeline? Also, if anyone can chime in on what the job is like I'd love to hear it!


The firm offer usually comes after your initial background check. Usually about 3 weeks, but could be more depending on HR.

Congratulations


Is the initial background check before the TO or after the fingerprints?

If some one has information,For RA positions. What is different between "AMENDED","EMPLOYMENT TAX","BANK SECURITY",... position and transferring from one to other, not technically . I mean when you work in one work field can you go to other after a while?
I know they are not same.But if you want to transfer from AMENDED to others or vs , Is that possible? You need apply again for RA position / You just can transfer as detail job?

Applied for the same announcement and have not received an update, as well.



I applied also and my status changed to "referred to selecting official" I just noticed yesterday, but I have not received any email since I took my assessment. I still haven't received my rank on the assessment. Not sure what to expect.

The fist day of employment is 7/19. Does anyone know or receive a notification about an orientation will be in the office or virtual? And is there anyone already received your working laptop?

Rmbr, I'm assuming you're new to the IRS. From what I hear, all new hires do orientation virtually since covid hit. Training will probably be virtual also. What happened with me is that they sent the laptop and other equipment to me via UPS a several weeks into work. Good luck. :^)

Does anyone have any updates for the TCO position which closed on 03/15/2021? My status says "Referred to selecting officials" for the past 3 weeks but haven't heard anything. Has anyone interviewed for this position?

Received my firm offer for a 7/19 start. The training class does not start until 11 August. My manager believes that most likely phase 1 and 2 of the training will be all virtual. Possibly phase 3 as well.

I applied for this position. I received the test assessment for TCO on April 14 and I recently interviewed for it on July 14. I am just waiting to hear back from them through email or phone call. The HR specialist that interviewed me mentioned the start date to be September 13, 2021.

Hello,

I applied for the external Tax Specialist, (TCO), 21CIN-SBX0260-0526-5T, that closed 03/15/2021.

I just got Best Qualified/Referred on 07/09/2021.

Almost 4 months after.

Being Best Qualified/Referred does not guarantee an interview, right?

It seems the IRS is taking a long time for hiring processes due to Covid.

I was also Referred/BQ for ITAS on 06/29/2021.

Not heard anything about an interview yet.

Let's see what happens...

It is 5/7/9 non competitively. You can go up to 11 but you need to wait for an announcement. I was a grade 9 for 5 years without ever having an announcement near me for the grade 11. Eventually I gave up and switched jobs but TCO was a great stepping stone to where I am at now.


Hi, IRSSpecialAgent_1Day,

I read this comment by you and have a couple of questions, hopefully, you can provide your opinion.

Was the TCO a great stepping stone for the Special Agent position that you now have now? I think that I read a comment from you on the Revenue Officer thread that the RO position is not a stepping stone for your job, but you are saying that the TCO is? That is interesting. Many would think the contrary, but you are in it and you would know.

Is there more Exam than collections work in your position?

A few years ago when I was with the IRS before, I was interested in becoming a Tax Analyst. When I read the experience/knowledge required for many of those jobs, I saw that they preferred experience in the same programs that TCOs are trained on/use.

I also know of TCOs that were GS 11s that became Appeal Officers.

It seems that although the TCO position is only career ladder to GS 9, and competitively to GS 11, the experience in that position is a great stepping store for many other higher grade/career ladder jobs, including Revenue Agent.

What's your take on that?

Thanks

Not sure if you got an answer, so I will answer.

Usually you start at GS grade step 1 and after a year you move to the next GS grade step 1. However, you might move to the step 2 of the current grade as you wait for the next GS grade step 1.

I am going in at my current GS Grade and step and since I have already met the 52 wk time in grade, the manager can request the next GS level with no issues. She did mention a 9 month review so I am hoping to get it then, but if not I am still qualified for it if it opens!

I got the impression I can't get promoted early even though I already have TIG. I'll be jealous if your manager actually does that.


If eligible your manager can request it. Sometimes they make you wait 90 days while others make you wait a year.

Honestly speaking, and after reading the IRA job qualifications again, I don't see why RO would not be a path to RA. When still have to research the same things in the account in order to collect. But we'll see in a few months when I apply!

I think you should re-read my post. I never said the RO is not a good stepping stone to the Special Agent position. The positions are not similar enough for the RO for forgo the accounting requirement. If you are an RO and want to become an SA and you DONT have the accounting credits, it's not possible to become an SA with IRS based on your RO experience alone. The same thing is true for TCO since you don't need accounting credits to become a TCO. I would have never gotten the SA position based on TCO experience alone....I needed the 15 accounting credits.

I am a special agent, I do not prepare returns, I don't not prepare tax calculations, I don't work civil cases....I work criminal investigations of different varieties. We work drug cases, we work corruption cases, we work terrorism cases, we work murder for hire cases, we work TAX cases, we work just about any and all cases that involve money. I personally work cases where there is a victim. Some agents prefer to work alone, other agents are on task forces, we have undercover agents, we work with Postal, FBI, DEA, Secret Service, Homeland security....you name it and we've probably worked with them. My TCO experience allows me to understand tax adjustments better than most agents. TCO was a great stepping stone and I'm sure RO and RA is too. My experience as a TCO is an asset to me. ROs and RAs have different experiences and that knowledge is an asset to them.

And on a side note, i remember back in the day when applying to RA positions, they didn't use my TCO background to qualify me so I was a grade 9 TCO going for a grade 9 RA position and was not qualified based on experience but they qualified me at 7 based on my education smh. Not sure if that's changed.

My TCO experience allows me to understand tax adjustments better than most agents. TCO was a great stepping stone and I'm sure RO and RA is too. My experience as a TCO is an asset to me. ROs and RAs have different experiences and that knowledge is an asset to them.

And on a side note, i remember back in the day when applying to RA positions, they didn't use my TCO background to qualify me so I was a grade 9 TCO going for a grade 9 RA position and was not qualified based on experience but they qualified me at 7 based on my education smh. Not sure if that's changed.

Typos Courtesy of these fat fingers, this long post, and the use of my cell phone.


It has changed. My 1 year TIG as a GS7 TCO has qualifed me for GS9 RA positions.


So, teeeej, you're saying that your 1 year TIG as a GS-07 TCO qualified you for the GS-09 RA position along with having the 30 credit hours in Accounting, right?

Thanks


Yes I've been referred for grade 9 ra positions with 1 year as a 7 TCO and the required accounting credits.
