Jobs Available at IRS

The IRS is searching for accountants who are interested in becoming IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agents. Job openings for 300 new agents have been announced and applicants may apply online.

Candidates selected for the special agent positions will attend a comprehensive training program at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Glynco, Georgia. Training begins with a one-week orientation program sponsored by the National Criminal Investigation Training Academy. Students then attend a nine-week Criminal Investigation Training Program covering basic Federal criminal investigation techniques including federal criminal law, courtroom procedures, enforcement operations, interviewing, and firearms training common to all Federal law enforcement agents.

Special agents can be placed at various locations around the United States as well as certain foreign locations. Special agents have been permanently assigned to Hong Kong, Colombia, Mexico, Canada, and Germany, as well as at Interpol in Lyon, France.

The Treasury Department's Criminal Investigation unit will have representatives at a number of career fairs around the country this fall where they will be available to answer questions in person.

CI special agents are duly sworn law enforcement officers who investigate complex financial crimes associated with tax evasion, money laundering, narcotics, organized crime, public corruption, and much more.
