Salary Tables for Internal Revenue (IR) Managers

The IRS Payband System is different from the General Schedule (GS) pay system. Paybands have a range of rates and do not have steps like the GS pay system. The range of rates for each payband correspond to Step 1 (minimum) and Step 10 (maximum ) of a GS grade - see chart in "Understanding Paybands." As a manager, pay increases are based on performance. Each January, managers are eligible for a performance based increase (PBI) which replaces the GS increase, within grade step and quality step increases.
The IRS Payband System has 3 levels of manager positions covered by the following paybands:
Level 1) The Senior Manager (SM) payband covers second-level managerial positions formerly classified at GS-14 or 15, or first-level managerial positions formerly classified at GS-14 or 15 that report directly to a member of the Senior Executive Service
Level 2) The Department Manager (DM) payband covers second-level managerial positions, formerly classified as GS-11, 12, or 13 grade levels, located at a Campus
Level 3) The Frontline Manager (FM) payband covers supervisory/managerial positions, formerly classified at the GS-5 through 15 grade levels, that are not covered under the SM or DM paybands
IR Manager Payband Salary Tables are listed by locality and effective the first day of the first pay period beginning on or after January 1'st. The locality tables can be found here: 2021 IR Salary Tables
