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’re in Ohio too, just wondering if you received your eqip or FO yet. I have received nothing but my proof of Covid vaccination.


Nope, nothing yet unfortunately.


I emailed my HR person Friday, I’ll let you know what they tell me because we also received our TO the same day and my fingerprint was 10/4 but I had to drive to Michigan because Cleveland closedown.


Thank you! I appreciate that. Hoping for some news tomorrow during the webinar too.


My EOD got pushed back to 1/3



Well I guess that's good news in a way? Lol
..they say why? I still haven't heard anything




Security being backed up due to the mass hiring my background check didn’t get processed in time.


I'd assume I'll probably get the same news too then. Thank you for the info. My HR contact doesn't reply often.


Yeah mine is good at replying they also said I should have gotten e-Qip last week and they are going to follow up with security to send it to me, but I’ll continue to post updates here.

Did anyone else have their completion date of new hire questionaire on onboarding portal update? I haven't messed with mine and for some reason it now says completed 11/27?

No, mine still has the original date on it. Should be fine if it's complete.

This was just shared during the information session: the IRS is still in COVID protocol and they don't know when they're going back to normal. EVERYTHING is still virtual, including initiating first contact with taxpayers. They don't have a timeline for when ROs will be back in the office and field.

Scotty, how has your day to day changed while working virtual? I understand that you were able to work from home 8 days a pay period originally? Do you still spend most of your time doing research and writing reports? What about the field visit portion? Are you just cold calling tax payers now or how has the field visit changed with covid?

Pre-pandemic I seldom went into the office anyway. They counted field days as office days and only occasionally did I do Officer of the day.

The only thing that’s really changed for ROs hired pre-pandemic is field visits.

I’ve only done a few since March 12,2020. One was to sell a property at auction. And a few times to serve summons for with a case I was working on or something for DOJ.

So for me it’s only been field visits. I actually go to the office more now to do Officer of the day. Maybe twice a month.

We still levy, file suits collect, write installment agreements, serve summons etc. just a lot of the paper goes through mail not hand delivered.

I’ve actually not worked cases since July. I am and OJI and have been teaching unit training as well as doing to acting manager time.

Anyone else wasn't able to get into the information Zoom sessions or know why I couldn't get in? Each time slot I tried joining I was put into the wait room and shortly after kept getting removed by the Zoom host and wasn't able to rejoin after that.

Edit- turns out they were sending me a different time zone time instead of the one I'm currently in hence why I kept getting kicked because I was one hour ahead of the meeting.

That’s so cool, congrats!
Did you get something from your POD?
Were you able to track your equipment or did it show up unannounced?
Email they sent today about orientation says to expect a call confirming receipt of info so I’m not sure what to expect next as far as equipment is concerned.

Got my gear too. Nothing from the POD. Wasn’t able to track it. It was overnight delivery and didn’t even show up on my UPS app. I got a laptop, keyboard, mouse, dock, and lock. For some reason I thought we were getting a printer and a shredder too. No clue where I got that idea. Wonder when I get the ID card since it’s all virtual onboarding.

Hey scottyd27. Can we use an alias in this position? I work state level and we are allowed to do so.

In the email, regarding orientation, it states we must make appointment within ten days to pick up PIV card at local office. I just got email today, so hopefully I’ll get my equipment soon too. Thanks for the info.

Ohhh. I did not get that email yet.


It’s in the attachment with next weeks schedule, under day one activities.
