Paul Bonner has published an article on the Journal of Accountancy, entitled “IRS to fast-track 10,000 hirings to address backlog”. The article begins as follows:
The IRS intends to use an expedited hiring process to hire about 10,000 workers for processing tax returns and managing taxpayers’ accounts, according to a union that represents employees in the Service and other federal agencies.
National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU) National President Tony Reardon said in a statement that the NTEU was notified that the IRS has been granted direct-hire authority for roughly 10,000 entry-level positions in its submission-processing and accounts-management functions.
The expedited process apparently is intended to “address concerns that the agency’s hiring process is difficult and slow,” Reardon said in the statement. “It is clear that understaffing in these areas contributes to the backlog in processing of tax returns and taxpayer correspondence.”
