No, not for an audit. The agency is looking to hire experienced business appraisers for 14 open positions across the U.S., Gary Smith, IRS lead financial analyst, tells BVWire. The IRS uses the title financial analyst for its business valuation specialists. The salary range is from $94,373 to $150,703 per year, according to the job posting, which you can see if you click here.

Other side: “As can be expected, the position involves reviewing (and sometimes challenging) valuations of operating entities, holding entities, or intangible assets, prepared in a fair market value/tax context,” Smith says. Some travel may be required, and the positions are “telework eligible” after the probationary first year, which allows the analyst to work remotely approximately four days a week. Federal benefits including a pension and a “great” work-life balance, “along with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re working for the right side of the table!” he quipped. Bet you didn’t know the IRS had a sense of humor!
