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)

If you do a few searches, you can find a little bit if info already posted here and on Reddit. But mostly, it’s nothing you can prepare for. Just make sure you have a quiet space and a couple of hours of uninterrupted time. Good luck!

The assessment does not require you to have specific tax knowledge. Only advice I can give is to take the time to read the directions and take your time. Good Luck!

Also as a bit of a side note, we *current and potentially future employees* are prohibited from giving details on assessments for government sector jobs. It violates the rule of ethics and confidentiality, and people can and have lost their jobs and or were removed from consideration for giving this information out. There are current and former employees of the IRS that both monitor and comment on these threads so you need to be careful as to what you are asking or saying here.

Did you get an invitation for the assessment? From my understanding, the one in august was new and everyone who didn’t take that version had to take it again. Generally, they are valid for a year, so you would need to take it anyway. Good luck.

I just took mine on Saturday. I don't know how fast you get the results but I think 3/29/21 is a cutoff date. Hopefully, we will hear something soon. It was a different test than I took years ago. If you haven't taken it, take your time and read......since we are not supposed to discuss it.

I took it a little over two weeks as well. I hope to hear the results soon! I know the email said it would take a few weeks, so I am expecting to hear any day now.

My status says received on the main website and reviewing applications on usajobs. (The IRS has a lot of jobs they are reviewing right now, so maybe that is a good sign.) Have not heard back since I took the assessment. I hope they do not put too much weight(emphasis) on the assessment. Some of us may suffer from test anxiety and may clam up on tests(personality or other tests). Timed tests are the worst! Anyway, hopefully we will hear something soon.

They posted some announcements for TEGE and Employee Plans last night. Are you referring to those?
