IRS offers targeted buyouts to employees in enforcement divisions
Monday - 2/27/2012, 4:19pm EST
The IRS has offered another, more targeted round of buyouts. The agency, however, plans to grant buyouts and early-outs to a limited number of employees — about 270 out of the 1,600 who are eligible, according to a staff email received by Federal News Radio.
The early retirements and buyout offers will be offered to employees in three enforcement areas: the small-business unit, the large and international business division, and the wage and investment division.
Eligible employees who accept the offer will have to leave service by May 3. According to the email, IRS employees who received the offers were contacted via email beginning last week.
The IRS email said the latest round of buyouts is more targeted and includes specific areas not covered before.
"We continue to operate in a fiscally tight environment this year, which means we need to be very thoughtful about where the IRS invests our limited budget dollars," an IRS staff email from Beth Tucker, deputy commissioner for Operations support, and Steve Miller, deputy commissioner for Services and Enforcement states. "As part of this effort, we continue to look at our staffing levels to be sure we can operate efficiently and adapt adequately to changes in tax administration."
The latest round of early-outs is the third set of offers in nearly as many months.
(For more on the latest round of IRS buyouts, check out Mike Causey's Federal Report Tuesday morning).
