WHAT IS THE WAGE AND INVESTMENT (W&I) DIVISION? The Wage & Investment Division (W&I) serves about 122 million taxpayers who file upwards of 94 million returns each year. Key W&I objectives are to provide high-quality taxpayer assistance, and to enable taxpayers to transact and communicate electronically to file their returns, make payments and receive assistance. W&I partners with private organizations to provide assistance to such disadvantaged groups as elderly and low-income taxpayers.
WHAT DOES A TAX EXAMINING TECHNICIAN DO? IRS employs Tax Examining Technicians (TETs) in many areas throughout the Service. In the Wage & Investment Division (W&I) function, TETs assist management by providing oversight and direction, assigning case referrals, and answering taxpayer inquiries to resolve issues such as tax processing.
As a Tax Examining Technician, you will:
Provide assistance on inquiries initiated by taxpayers by determining information needed to resolve inquiries, and researching pertinent tax data through IDRS, accounting records, telephone contact, IRS officials or other agencies;
Take corrective actions to close a case, such as adjusting taxpayer's account, recomputing tax liability, and preparing manual refunds;
Refer possible violations of tax law or cases requiring examination determinations or legal determinations of the tax code.
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.
