    WHAT DOES A FINANCIAL ANALYST DO? As a FINANCIAL ANALYST (Business Appraiser) in the IRS you will perform unique, sometimes controversial and precedent setting appraisals of businesses and business interests where the appraisal can have significant tax impact, tax compliance, affect large segments of the taxpayer(s) population, and have the potential to suggest needed legislative change.

    • Review facts, and if existing facts are insufficient, request additional information and conduct independent investigations to gather relevant information, and analyze and interpret findings.
    • Function as a technical authority on issues requiring the application of new theories and standards to appraisal problems not susceptible to treatment by accepted and established procedures, or where no accepted or established appraisal procedures exist.
