• Just talk to one of our many content designers. Although we’re sorry we can’t help you with all of the questions you may have about that vacancy announcement you are reading or the application you submitted, we’ll gladly listen to your suggestions about ways we can do a better job of giving you the information you need about working here at the IRS.

  • You never have to pay a fee to apply for an IRS job.

    From time to time, however, you may see ads advising you to call for an application form and free government job information. These ads may claim that — in exchange for a payment or fee — they’ll send you the information you need for a position with the IRS, including how to test and score well. Some ads even claim to "guarantee" you will get a full-time permanent position with benefits, or they’ll refund your money.

  • Not at all. If we’ve determined that you were eligible for the position, but you simply weren’t hired for a specific vacancy, try again. There may have been so many applicants for that specific position that we could not hire everyone that was qualified.

    What you can do now is log back in to USAJOBS and review your resume to make sure that it describes how your experience and education directly relate to the job you are applying for. Hint: You can build more than one resume on USAJOBS, and then choose the best one to use for each application you submit.

  • You can check on your status by logging into USAJOBS and clicking on the "My USAJOBS" tab. Then click on "Application" to track your online job application. Please note that you’ll need to provide your USAJOBS User ID and password to access the "Track Online Job Application" feature.

    On the Online Application History Page, you can also view the status of your application. When you click the "Information" link, you’ll be able to see more specific information about it within the IRS applicant management system, CareerConnector.

  • The best way to discover what it’s like to work with us is to hear what some of our professionals have to say. See our employee profiles.

  • Each IRS job has very specific qualifications that are explained in detail in each vacancy announcement. You should read the qualifications section very carefully to make sure that you meet all of the requirements for the position. General information about qualifications can be found throughout the IRS Careers Website and at the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), which maintains an extensive library of qualifications needed for all federal jobs. Here is a link to the Qualification Standards for General Schedule Positions.

  • You can apply to almost all IRS jobs online through USAJOBS 24 hours a day.

  • At the IRS, we have a variety of opportunities for all kinds of professionals, paraprofessionals, and administrative workers — plus seasonal jobs in many cities across the US.
