WHAT DOES AN ECONOMIST DO? Economists perform assignments based on research and analyses involved in examinations, including complex issues covering a range of industries and specializations. They conduct microeconomic research and analyses that require the study of economic structure, business practices and functions, financial markets, interest rates, product life cycles, etc. They review and analyze economic, statistical, and tax data to determine the existence of a potential economic issue; recommend assistance or withdrawal; develop an effective work plan, and conduct research in source materials. They explain and defend research findings to the taxpayer, taxpayer's representatives, exam team, Appeals, Counsel, and other IRS personnel. They provide technical guidance and serve as qualified witnesses for the Government in cases reaching litigation.
WHAT IS THE LARGE BUSINESS AND INTERNATIONAL DIVISION? The Large Business and International (LB&I) business unit provides service and enforcement activities to support tax compliance of businesses and related entities with assets of $10 million or more, as well as small U.S. businesses engaged in international, U.S. citizens abroad, and foreign persons and businesses with a U.S. tax requirement. As our name suggests, international tax administration is an important part of what we do in LB&I. As part of the LB&I team, you may be assigned to work in International, or with one of six industry segments: Communications Technology and Media, Financial Services, Global High Wealth, Heavy Manufacturing and Transportation, Natural Resources and Construction, or Retailers, Food, Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare. Regardless of where you serve, you will be supported by a variety of specialists (economists, engineers, field specialists and technical advisors) as you tackle the most complex foreign and domestic tax issues.
