IRS Careers: Linda
Meet Linda, Tax Compliance Officer.
Working a caseload of 50-60 cases, I review tax returns and contact and interview taxpayers about their tax situation. This job gives me the opportunity to pursue an area of work I enjoy - tax law. It also gives me the chance to help people and educate them about their tax obligations. The taxpayers I work with are usually very appreciative.
I chose to work for the IRS when I saw an ad in USAJOBS. I had been looking for stability and something I could count on for the long term. And, the IRS was a solid place to start and build a career. I feel I'm developing my knowledge of tax law and enforcement, and there's something new to learn every day. One added benefit is that my position enables me to help friends and families with their taxes.
When I'm not at work, I have plenty of time to be a parent for my 3-year-old daughter. I also participate in activities with Hispanic Internal Revenue Employees (HIRE) - we get involved in events such as the CFC Campaign, a golf tournament, Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) sites for the local Hispanic community, and the HIRE Conference.
What I'd like potential applicants to know about the IRS is that the career opportunities here are virtually unlimited.
