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.

Hello I'm on the same boat applied on 5/19 and took the test on 6/7 according to the post in this forum (2012) sometimes we have to wait for the application time closes to be able to see any update but not sure if those steps have been updated ever since.

Hello,

First time posting here. I had a call for an interview at one of the location -third choice actually :)- The caller was very nice but when I asked why I was selected for a GS-7 and not GS-9 although I'm currently paid at GS-9 Step 1 she said I would not know that.

Has anyone here was successful at negotiating the GS salary? Do they need to match my salary, like put me as a GS-7 step 7? does anyone know if I can later change my duty station? Lastly, can anyone chime in what the interview entails.

Sorry for the many questions, this just happened all of the sudden and I'll appreciate any feedback.

You're selected to interview depending on which certificate they are using to hire. If you applied for GS-7 then you show up on the GS-7 certificate. The hiring manager just selects the people they want from the certificate and isnt checking to see who is on both etc. They make their selections and send to HR. This is more a question for HR and not the interviewer. Whether you get a GS-9 depends on if you are on the GS-9 certificate of refereed candidates AND the hiring official selects you on that certificate.

If you're a current federal employee your salary will probably be matched.

First time poster here...

Been following this thread for a few weeks now trying to gain insight on the job and hiring process. I feel like it's my responsibility to offer insight on my path so others can gauge it from their point of view. Here is a break down of my timeline for reference:

Applied in March
Took the exam in April I believe
Interviewed early June
Received tentative offer today for southern Florida (6/22)

My background:
Eight years military police
Three years federal police (early retirement, military injuries)
Five years federal service in admin type jobs (current GS-11 federal employee)
Education: MBA, Bachelors in Business, and Associates in Criminal Justice

Offered a GS-9 position due to education and experience. Start date is scheduled for August 16th.

Again this is my TENTATIVE offer I received today. Already completed the onboarding process and waiting for further instructions. Just wanted everyone to know the process is moving, albeit slow. If you're a current federal employee or prior military, you know the drill.

Reach out if you have any questions.

Very similar background to me except the federal LEO experience. Everything else is the same, MP, GS-11, masters, GS-9 TO. Maybe we'll see each other around sometime.

They do not need to match your salary if you are external but you can always appeal to HR. They will ask for current pay stubs and other supporting documentation. Even if you are a current federal employee, there are certain times they don’t need to match it either, but that’s a matter to discuss with HR. As far as changing your duty station, there has to be an available job there to even begin that process. Again, discuss this with HR if you want to know specifics. Lastly, nobody will tell you what the interview entails because you are told not to, but I suggest look at the job announcement, remember what was on the ROSA, and go onto irs.gov under careers and look what a Revenue Officer does! Good luck, we need all the people we can get for this position!

Tank, Foggy- Good luck to both of you. I was a former MP- that service served me well as a special agent. I met many former MP/CID during my career. Some were in IRS, as well as ATF, FBI, ICE, and DEA.

I'm an IRS internal vet (USMC) that applied for the RO position. Had my interview a few weeks ago. Waiting on results. I have a friend who is an RO for many years. After reading most of these posts, I have to say most people don't really understand what is needed to be a successful RO. First, you don't need anything more than a Bachelor's Degree. (I'm internal so all I needed was 6 semester hours of accounting). Anyway, you don't need an Master's or MBA, you don't need years of finance or accounting experience because you're not going to audit anyone, you don't need prior LEO/MP experience because you’re not going to arrest anyone, and you are certainly not going to swoop down from a helicopter and fast rope onto a building to chase down a delinquent taxpayer. Second, to be successful in the RO position, you'll need two skills. One, you must be able to write clear, accurate, and grammatically correct case notes. I can’t stress enough how important this skill is. You will be creating legal records so they MUST be accurate. Second, you must have the ability to communicate clearly and directly to taxpayers in the most professional and fair manner possible. Never lose your cool. If you have diarrhea of the mouth or a short fuse, look for another job. If you cannot put a correct sentence together, look for another job. Writing and Communicating, it's that simple. If you can't do either at the highest level day in day out, look for another job. You're a Collections Specialist. That’s it. Nothing more, nothing less. Treat everyone the same under the tax law and following the Internal Revenue Manual and you'll be fine. Sorry to burst everyone’s bubble about how wonderful your resumes are but I’m a realist and I tell it like it is. Good luck everyone.

You also don’t necessarily need 6 accounting credits. Just look at what is required on the job announcement people. It specifies what is required to apply and be eligible!

Thank you! It definitely taught me verbal judo haha. I use my MP skills all the time in my current job. Many of times I've been complimented over keeping it cool when a person goes ham on me. Once you've been surrounded and outnumbered by a bunch of violent drunk guys yet find a way to make out ok, everything else just seems tame lol.

Quick question, aside from attempting to be patient regarding the status of whether an interview is on the horizon by watching thr USAJobs site, is there any other avenue others have taken to find out their status?

I took my testing a few weeks ago (approx. 3) and I'm looking to gain information on whether I'll be progressing or not.

I haven't received any declined emails yet, so I'm under the "silence is golden" mantra at the moment.


No

I am going in as a 9/2 with hopes of being able to get GS11 before my next step increase. I am not changing locations. I met with my manager today and hopefully I can make GS11 in 9 months. 😆


I'm hoping to come in as a 9/10 to match current salary, but as an external.


Congratulations on your offer!

I just applied myself for Houston,TX on the announcement that is still open.

Are you a Veteran?

Do you know if they're going to continue hiring for Houston or they are pretty much done?

Thx!




I'm a 30%+ Disabled Vet, rated BQ. Applied for GS-7. Got email notice from USAJOBS they shut down hiring and wont be filling any positions at GS7. I applied in Houston also. Not that worried about it, I got an offer from DOL for a claims examiner position.


Sorry to see that you were not hired even though you're a Vet. Congratulations on your offer as a Claims Examiner! What grade is that for?

I qualify as a GS-09 due to prior federal experience. I see that the announcement closes on 07/27/2021 and I heard that they are going to have another round of hiring. Maybe we get hired in the next round, Spazilton... Maybe there is hope.

I was referred for the Individual Taxpayer Advisory Specialist and for the Tax Specialist (TCO) also. Would prefer RO because of the promotional opportunities or TCO because their training is a path to Appeals Officer and Tax Analyst.

Let's see...



Career ladder position, starting at GS-7. Promotion potential to 12.

I couldn’t agree with you more.

You have to write every sentence in your case histories like you’ll have to defend them in court. Or like some ambulance chasing attorney will take it to the media after they FOIA.

If you’re timid, if you’re not confident, if you can’t communicate effectively verbally and written. Find another job:

You need a bachelors degree to get the job. But that doesn’t mean you’re qualified to shine shoes let alone be an RO.

I have a BS in forensic accounting, a master in taxation.

But what I sometimes tell difficult taxpayers, while I’m not a practicing accountant and not really an expert in tax law, I am an expert in finding people and assets and am an expert on collections.

I don’t care if you’re an external candidate or an internal that worked at ACS for 20 years. You don’t know how to be an RO. Listen to your OJIs, GM and classroom instructors.

The hardest year you will have is you’re second year on the job. You won’t have your OJI to guide you/. You need to be able to research and understand the IRM on your 366th day.

Also, if reading comprehension is a problem for you. FIND ANOTHER JOB.

Well, this position is right up my alley. While in school, I earned an associates degree in paralegal studies, and a bachelors degree in legal studies. I also hold a position in the government sector dealing with legal matters. Writing case briefs and categorizing calendars, speaking with angry, scared, and even suicidal clients as well as the ins and outs of tax law are major things that I deal with on a daily bases. Where I am now, I have to focus on the task at hand, stay neutral minded and help clients understand the what’s, why’s and how’s of their particular situations, all while doing my job in a timely manner.

While you may not be fast roping or arresting anyone, make no mistake this is a law enforcement position.

If hired you are a federal officer. You don’t have arrest authority and you don’t carry a gun.

You are commissioned not sworn. And you enforce civil law.

Even CI doesn’t fast rope into building and honestly the ones I’ve seen couldn’t run down some 80 year old on a walker.

You will learn to find people and there stuff. You will learn to analyze financial data and trust me once your cases get more complex you will run down the rabbit hole examining someone’s financial life to find the money.

There are only 3 kinds of taxpayers. I don’t care what anyone say. Doesn’t matter if it’s 200 or 2 million dollars.

There is: Can’t pay but will work with you to resolve the issue, normally because they’re terrified.

There is: didn’t didnt know they had to pay or file. I find in south Florida this is mostly the immigrant population. And I also find that this population is eager to resolve the problems for a variety of reason. Mostly because they come from places where they didn’t have public services like here and are happy to be educated on their responsibilities and pay.

And won’t pays: these are my favorite and most interesting cases.

You will get people that won’t pay for any number of reason. From constitutional arguments to they just think they are above the law that 86% of the population adheres to.

And it’s your job to break their will.

80 year old on a walker, that's pretty good. I remember our PT instructor at Glynco, a Border Patrol Agent. He ran us through the ATF confidence course (half our class was ATF). He later told us he was admonished by his boss, who told him, "Some of those people are IRS, they could have hurt themselves". But we had also had some combat vets- army and Marines. And my partner was a former fleet boxing champ- he once decked a protestor who was dumb enough to take a swing at him. I don't know what they're hiring now, but back then we were not all p*****s.

I’m just messing around about that… sort of. I’m an old broken combat vet. I am not chasing anyone anywhere.

If they’d run I’d just find them later.
