When I say it starts at $32k that includes the locality differential for Seattle (the above is the results of searching on “irs Seattle” so your mileage may vary. The first test is to make sure you are literate and can follow directions, the second test is how you handle phones, and the 3rd test are the classes. To be honest, I am not sure what the other cities are - probably Philly, Austin, Ogden, San Diego, Portland - whatevs. If you get hired, let me know - I keep hoping someone here finds a nice job.
