Former Internal Revenue Agent in Dallas, Texas

Revenue Agents have liberal "telework" policy, only needing to show up to office 1 day every 2 weeks. However, due to nature of the job, efficient agents need to be flexible each day in which cases they work on and need ready access to their entire inventory of cases stored in office filing cabinet, and they need access to telephone and high-output printer (LOTS of paperwork) at the office, so it isn't practical to do much work from home. Working from home is best for early returns from audits (for instance, working on lead sheets) and for employees (such as analysts) who do most of their work on the computer.

If you could get a telecommute job it was great.

Current Contact Representative in Dallas, Texas

The union, NTEU, is pressing for more work from home opportunities, but security concerns make telework controversial. The job I do could easily be performed by telework, with questions that needed to be addressed internally, handled by Messenger in real time. I would love to get 3 hours of my day, lost to commuting, BACK!
