OGDEN — Heads up, job hunters — the Internal Revenue Service is on another hiring spree, hoping to fill around 600 openings at its Ogden-area facilities.

Recruiting events are set for Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at the Copper Nickel Events Center at 2450 Grant Ave. in Ogden. “It is open to the public. Walk-ins are welcome,” the IRS said in a statement.

In late March and early April, the IRS — one of the biggest employers in Weber County — held a series of job fairs to fill 5,000 posts in the Ogden area and at IRS facilities in the Austin, Texas, and Kansas City, Missouri, areas. Now, the agency is seeking around 600 workers to fill full-time swing shifts in the Ogden area.

“These clerk and tax examiner positions are basically entry-level and do not require prior tax expertise. Starting pay begins at $15.61 per hour and goes up from there,” said the IRS. Full-time swing shifts go from 4 p.m. to 12:30 a.m., Monday through Friday.

Job seekers should bring resumes, college transcripts if they have them and two forms of identification. More information is available at bit.ly/3ajMrJJ and applicants are also encouraged to set up an account ahead of time at USAJobs.gov. More hiring events are to be held around the country through the rest of the spring into the summer.

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig referenced the workload the agency faces in testimony earlier this month to the a U.S. Senate subcommittee.

“The combination of the pandemic, new tax laws and numerous other factors led to an unprecedented amount of unprocessed tax returns and correspondence remaining in the IRS inventory during 2021,” he said. “The IRS pursued significant actions during the 2021 filing season to address the return and correspondence inventory. But due to resource issues and numerous unique factors tied to new legislation and the pandemic, we have entered the 2022 filing season with a significant inventory of unprocessed returns and correspondence and, to date, the inability to meet our hiring goals.”
