Frank Jones currently serves as a Management Analyst with the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) in Atlanta, GA. Frank previously served as an Audit Manager in the Returns Processing and Account Service program and as an Audit Director in the Compliance and Enforcement Operations Program.

Frank has served as a Council of Inspectors General on Integrity and Efficiency (CIGIE) instructor since 2009 and also serves as an auditing instructor for TIGTA.
Frank began his career with the IRS Inspection Service in 1989, and has been with TIGTA since its establishment in 1998. While with TIGTA, he has participated in several notable customer service reviews where Frank and his team have played the role of taxpayers and conducted anonymous visits to IRS Taxpayer Assistance Centers and Volunteer Income Tax Assistance sites. For this review, auditors evaluated IRS employees and volunteers' ability to correctly answer tax law questions and prepare accurate tax returns. During the 2008 filing season, Frank expanded his efforts and his team conducted anonymous visits to unenrolled commercial tax return preparation companies. The results from these reviews were instrumental in the IRS establishing the Taxpayer Assistance Blueprint and Paid Preparer Strategy.

In 2016 Frank also received the inaugural Adjunct Instructor Training Award of Excellence from CIGIE. Frank is a mentor with more than 32 years of auditing experience.
