Every employee who is currently working in AM, including IDTVA, who has worked there for at least two pay periods between February 27, 2022 and September 30, 2022 will receive a SAA. This means both the employees who were specifically detailed back to AM for the Surge and those who are in AM essentially working in support of the Surge, will be granted the SAA.
Every employee who is currently working in SP who has worked there for at least two pay periods between April 11, 2022 and September 30, 2022 will receive a SAA. Again, this means both employees who were assigned to work the Surge from SB/SE or other divisions and the current SP employees will be granted an SAA.
Part-time and seasonal employees meeting this criterion will also be granted an SAA.
The IRS acknowledged that every employee working in AM and SP, whether on phones or paper, are all working tirelessly on the backlog or in support of addressing the backlog, providing invaluable assistance to fix problems that they did not create.
