Internal Revenue Service Hiring Armed Agents for All 50 States

An Internal Revenue Service (IRS) job posting shows the tax collection agency is hiring armed agents to work in states across the country.

The IRS website is emblazoned with the words, “We’re Hiring Special Agents Now!”

Among the major duties of IRS special agents is to “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”

Another duty is to “carry a firearm.”

The website say a special agent “must be prepared to protect him/herself or others from physical attacks at any time and without warning and use firearms in life-threatening situations; must be willing to use force up to and including the use of deadly force.”

Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) notes that the IRS has “360 vacancies” for agents, and those vacancies are spread across all 50 states.

President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress used the Inflation Reduction Act to send $80 billion to the IRS, and ATR points out the IRS is “on pace to hire 87,000 IRS employees over the next decade.”
