IRS Posts Job Openings for Armed Agents in Every State

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has 360 vacancies on its USAJOBS page for “Criminal Investigator” and one of the key requirements is to carry a firearm.

“We’re hiring special agents now!” the IRS Careers page states.

The IRS Careers page continues:

Criminal Investigation (CI) is the law enforcement branch of the IRS. Our mission is to serve the American public by investigating potential criminal violations of the Internal Revenue Code, and related financial crimes, in a manner that fosters confidence in the tax system and compliance with the law.

As a Special Agent you will combine your accounting skills with law enforcement skills to investigate financial crimes. Special Agents are duly sworn law enforcement officers who are trained to “follow the money.” No matter what the source, all income earned, both legal and illegal, has the potential of becoming involved in crimes which fall within the investigative jurisdiction of the IRS Criminal Investigation. Because of the expertise required to conduct these complex financial investigations, IRS Special Agents are considered the premier financial investigators for the Federal government.

Criminal Investigation Special Agents are part of a diverse workforce that mirrors the taxpaying public we serve.

“Be legally allowed to carry a firearm” is among the listed key requirements.

“Carry a firearm; 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” is listed under major duties.

Why would an IRS agent need to use deadly force?

First off, the agency shouldn’t exist.

They’re used for the unlawful extortion of the free men and women of America.

As mentioned, the agency is looking to hire 360 agents across the country.

If you browse on, you’ll notice there are IRS Criminal Investigator (CI) positions available in every state.

Americans for Tax Reform reported:

All 50 states are included in the list of locations. For example, armed agents are sought at 18 sites in California, 13 sites in Florida, 13 sites in New York, five sites in Arizona and four in Wisconsin.

Congressional Democrats and President Biden sent $80 billion in taxpayer funding to the IRS as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.

The IRS released a spending outline on April 6 showing the agency is on pace to hire 87,000 IRS employees over the next decade.

Not all of them will be “armed only with calculators.”

The $80 billion in funding provides no new protections for taxpayers. Combined with the IRS history of firearms mismanagement and lack of respect for due process, this is cause for concern among law abiding Americans has the exact location for all 360 vacancies.
