WHAT DOES A COURT WITNESS COORDINATOR DO? The Court Witness Coordinator (CWC) serves as the representative for the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the Commissioner's role as custodian of records. In this capacity, the CWC travels extensively across the country to prepare, perfect, certify, and be sworn in under oath to present evidence and testify, in the form prescribed by law, as an expert witness to the authenticity of IRS documents for use in judicial processes and proceedings. To accomplish this, the CWC utilizes knowledge and experience gained about IRS tax law, policies, guidelines; and about other campus/IRS' organizations' functions, activities, systems, and programs, and their impact on the processing of IRS tax returns and documents. CWCs also use this knowledge and experience to provide information and advice to management and external stakeholders; to obtain documents; to assist in pre-trial preparations, proceedings and trials; and to testify to all matters within the scope of the Commissioner's custodial responsibility.

As a Court Witness Coordinator you will:

  • Represent the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service in trials, pre-trial proceedings, and other judicial or quasi-judicial processes, on behalf of the IRS Commissioner for the Commissioner's role as custodian of returns and documents.

  • Communicate extensively with external stakeholders, including in grand jury or trial court environments, to explain Internal Revenue Service tax law, documents, procedures and/or policies, all the while maintaining poise and equanimity under conditions that are routinely hostile.

  • Travel extensively throughout the United States, which may require some weekend travel, in order to testify and present evidence as to all matters within the scope of the Commissioner's custodial responsibility.

  • Assist IRS operating divisions and other service and enforcement functions, the United States Attorney's staff, and other law enforcement agencies in pre-trial preparation.

  • Prepare memoranda, written guidelines and recommendations and develop action plans and schedules for long and short-range project accomplishment consistent with Internal Revenue Service goals, schedules and policies.

  • Comply with Treasury Order 105-13, known as the Giglio Policy, which applies to all Treasury employees who will be providing a sworn statement or testifying as a witness for the Government in a federal criminal proceeding.

  • Perform work in an office setting, grand jury or trial court environment under conditions that are routinely hostile; maintain poise and equanimity in an atmosphere of personal hostility.

If you are selected at a lower grade level, you will have the opportunity to learn to perform all these duties, and will receive training to help you grow in this position.
