What are the Laws for Revenue Agent Overtime Pay?

Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, Revenue Agents are often entitled to overtime pay for all hours worked over 40 in one week. If an employer denies a Revenue Agent overtime wages, it could give rise to an overtime pay lawsuit.

There are strict time limitations for filing a claim so it is important that you discuss your case in a timely manner. If you wait too long, you may lose your ability to recover some or all of your back pay. An experienced Revenue Agent overtime pay attorney can determine whether you are entitled to overtime wages based upon your job description, job duties, rate of pay, and number of hours worked.

Some states have their own overtime pay laws that may be slightly different from the FLSA with respect to overtime pay for Revenue Agents. There are strict time deadlines for filing lawsuits so it is essential that you contact an attorney immediately.

Are Revenue Agents Entitled to Overtime Pay?

Because Revenue Agents perform essential duties in auditing tax returns for the IRS, they often work far more than 40 hours in a workweek. Many of them are not paid overtime for these excess hours as required under the FLSA. The employer’s failure to pay required overtime to a Revenue Agent can result in a lawsuit for overtime pay.
