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.

Do you have criminal law enforcement experience?

This is from the questionnaire to qualify for GS-11.

Examples of qualifying law enforcement experience include conducting criminal investigations involving federal tax and/or money laundering violations including one or more of the following: Indirect methods of proof; utilization of multiple nominees, bank accounts, and/or entities; utilization of alter ego and/or sham corporations; multiple judicial districts and/or targets; and/or other financial investigations (money laundering).Specialized experience must have included Federal Law Enforcement experience in leading and effecting Federal enforcement actions including search, seizure, and arrest warrants.

BF3FAN1 you’ll find out if you didn’t pass the assessment. You’ll get an email saying you didn’t and you’ll have to wait 1 year to reapply.

Professorx I do not have criminal law enforcement experience. I qualify for GS-9 because I have 2 accounting degrees. Currently an RA and do civil tax and auditing stuff right now. I’m also currently a GS-9.

curious how this works, I see the announcement closes in September, does that mean no one from this round will be reviewed until then, or do they start reviewing applications as they come in?

From what another poster said in one of the 2021 threads, this is a rolling job posting. Which means they will pull applications from time to time while the posting is open. They claimed that the first pull should be some time in March but we will see.

Has anyone heard back yet? Seems like it’s been around a month or over a month for most people after taking the first assessment.

Provisional just means that the decision is not final. You will need to read the rest of the email to see if you have been moved to the next section or if you have been marked as ineligible. Was this email from the newest 2022 opening?


Just got the email to take the KASE “if additional assessments are required”. are Really excited!!!

It takes a 1-3 weeks for them to send the invite to take the assessment. At least that’s what some other people said on the other forums.
