IR-2022-55, March 10, 2022

WASHINGTON — To help serve taxpayers during this challenging tax season, the Internal Revenue Service announced today that it is hiring more than 5,000 positions in its service processing centers located in Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Missouri; and Ogden, Utah.

These positions fall under a special hiring condition called direct-hire authority. New hires may expect to begin work within 30-45 days of their job offer.

"It's an exciting time to work for the Internal Revenue Service," said IRS Taxpayer Experience Officer and Wage and Investment Commissioner Ken Corbin. "Those who wish to work with customer service as their focus are encouraged to apply. This is gratifying work - as these newly hired individuals will process tax returns and deliver refunds to the nation's taxpayers."

Available positions include temporary, term and permanent jobs. Many are entry-level clerk and tax examiner positions in the Wage and Investment Division. No prior tax experience is required.

"The IRS has opportunities for almost every profession, starting with these entry level positions. Starting here today can guide you to your future career, like it has done for me starting in high school," said Corbin.

The IRS offers competitive pay and benefits, on-the-job training, and opportunities for advancement. The pay range for these positions is from GS-02 to GS-09.

Virtual hiring events

The agency is hosting virtual direct hiring events on March 16, 23 and 30, where the IRS will review resumes and extend job offers to eligible applicants on the spot.

Interested job seekers are encouraged to bring their resumé and two forms of identification (i.e., state driver's license and/or state Identification card, birth certificate, U.S. Passport, Military ID card or Social Security card).
