    Responsibilities

     WHAT IS THE CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION DIVISION? Criminal Investigation is the investigative and law enforcement arm of the IRS.  The American system of voluntary tax compliance relies heavily on self-assessments of what tax is owed.  When individuals or corporations deliberately don't comply with the tax laws, Criminal Investigation responds with financial investigations and potential criminal prosecutions to promote compliance and confidence in the fairness of the tax system.

    WHAT DOES A SPECIAL AGENT DO? IRS-CI Special Agents (SAs) are duly sworn federal law enforcement officers throughout all 50 states and US territories including special agent attachés located in 11 countries. As a SA, you will combine your accounting skills with law enforcement skills to investigate financial crimes.

    SAs fill a unique niche in the federal law enforcement community due to IRS-CI’s broad jurisdiction of Title 18 and Title 31 crimes, in addition to our primary tax enforcement mission. SAs are known for their financial investigative expertise in areas, such as, tax fraud, public corruption, cybercrimes, narcotics, terrorism, and much more. Today’s sophisticated schemes demand the analytical ability of financial investigators to trace transactions through complex financial records.

    As a Special Agent, you will:

    • Investigate violations of Federal tax laws;
    • Obtain and analyze complex financial evidence;
    • Conduct surveillance, dignitary protection, and undercover operations;
    • Execute search and arrest warrants;
    • Identify and seize property used in, or acquired through, illegal activities; and
    • Testify and assist the U.S. Attorney during trial.

    If you are selected at a lower grade level, you will have the opportunity to learn to perform all these duties, and will receive training to help you grow in this position.
