Agency, Department, and Bureau Jobs



IRS Agents

The IRS will hire more than 17,000 new IRS Agents to enforce the new Health Care legislation.
The average annual salary exceeds $42,000 a year for IRS agents.

Internal Revenue Agent (IRA) administer the tax examinations for the largest corporations in America and coordinate examinations of multinational and national corporations. The principal duties and responsibilities include the following:

  • Work with a variety of technical experts such as Economists, Financial Products Specialists and Engineers in addressing complex tax issues
  • Determining appropriate tax assessments
  • Frequently deal with corporations on complex tax issues such as tax shelters, mergers and acquisitions, global operations, and transfer pricing
  • Work closely with their customers, often dealing with the senior levels of corporate tax departments and/or their representatives.
  • Navigate complex financial arrangements involving consolidations, related multi-tiered ownership chains, and a myriad of taxing jurisdictions and how this translates to US Federal Tax liabilities.

Revenue agents specialize in tax-related accounting work for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and for equivalent agencies in State and local governments. Like tax examiners, they audit returns for accuracy. However, revenue agents handle complicated income, sales, and excise tax returns of businesses and large corporations. As a result, their work differs in a number of ways from that of tax examiners.

Revenue agents with the IRS must have either a bachelor's degree or 30 semester hours of accounting coursework along with specialized experience. Specialized experience includes full-time work in accounting, bookkeeping, or tax analysis.

In March of 2010 the new health care legislation was signed and as a result the IRS must hire an additional 17,000 IRS agents to enforce the new health care legislation. In 2008, tax examiners, revenue agents, and collectors held about 72,700 jobs. About 98 percent worked for government. About 2 percent were self employed. In the IRS, tax examiners and revenue agents predominate because of the role of the agency. Collectors make up a smaller proportion, because most disputed tax liabilities do not require enforced collection.
