What you can expect to experience while on the job
Employment of tax examiners and collectors, and revenue agents is projected to show little or no change from 2016 to 2026. Employment of these workers will depend primarily on future changes to federal, state, and local government budgets. Budget reductions in recent years have resulted in decreased hiring for the agencies that employ these workers. Within the federal government, the primary employer of tax examiners and collectors, and revenue agents is the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which has experienced more severe budget cuts than many other federal agencies. Further employment declines for these workers in the federal government may occur if the IRS continues to operate with decreased budgets. Employment of these workers in the federal government is projected to decline 8 percent. At the state and local levels, funding for the departments in which tax examiners and collectors, and revenue agents work has been more stable. Therefore, employment of these workers in state and local government is expected to grow in line with overall state and local government employment.Read More
