About Joe Banister
A Promising Career In The IRS Criminal Investigation Division Cut Short
After an extended period of waiting for the FBI hiring freeze to be lifted, I continued to work in the accounting profession but was eventually contacted by the IRS Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID) and offered a "special agent" position in the San Francisco office. I was subjected to a panel interview, a second exhaustive background investigation administered by the IRS Inspection Service, and other inquiries and testing, all of which I successfully fulfilled. I was even audited as part of my IRS background investigation and my returns were found to be in perfect order (Exhibit 1). I was officially sworn in as an IRS Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID) Special Agent in November, 1993 in Oakland, California. I spent most of the first half of 1994 at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in southern Georgia, and earned various commendations for my performance there (Exhibit 2).
I was very proud to have earned the special agent/criminal investigator position with IRS-CID and I worked very hard at my job (Exhibit 3). The following were among my accomplishments during my employment there:
· Special Act Award (6/95)
· Performance Award (9/96)
· Sustained Superior Performance Award (8/97)
· Top Athlete Award (12/97)
· Promotion To Top Grade  before 5 year employment anniversary
