The IRS Prepares to Hire at Warp Speed
The agency is looking to have 105,187 workers by fiscal year 2025
New projections obtained by POLITICO Friday indicate that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has a truly mammoth task ahead to achieve its hiring goals.
In case you missed the story, the agency is looking to have 105,187 workers by fiscal year 2025 — a figure that takes into account the fact that two-thirds of current IRS workers will become eligible for retirement in the next six years, according to a source.
To put that in full perspective, since that that same data indicates the agency had around 72,700 employees in fiscal year 2022, the IRS’s workforce is set to increase by 45 percent in less than three years.
