Anybody heard from the postings that originally closed in mid March? There were multiple cities, so I'm just curios if anyone has heard from any of them. Thanks.

I am guessing the tax attorneys on this Board are currently working 16 hour days. March is a weird time for an IRS job announcement since most tax attorneys are swamped. Hope you hear soon.

I applied for the non-tax position and haven't heard anything yet. The deadline for that position was maybe 1-2 earlier than the tax position. Status still shows "Received"

A one month wait after a job closes is nothing when you're talking about federal gov. hiring. It's not unusual for federal gov. agencies to take 6 months to a year to screen and fill jobs. I've applied for jobs with other (non-IRS) agencies, forgotten all about my apps, then was contacted nearly a year later with requests for additional information or interview invites. Or sometimes I get vague "the job has been cancelled or filled" notices or emails 8 months to a year after applying.

If you haven't heard anything after 4-6 months, then you should probably assume it's not meant to be and just move on. A long delay could be due to a number of factors aside from selection of another candidate or lack of interest in your application: agency red tape, internal change in decision to hire, not enough HR staff to screen candidates/conduct interviews, the expected final budget approval for new hires fell through, intra-agency disagreement among top leadership over staff needs, cancellation of the position due to internal politics.
