IRS seeking applicants who will be armed and “willing to use deadly force.”

President Joe Biden’s administration is set to add thousands of agents to the IRS. Some of the requirements for the job have people wondering what the nature of their investigations will be.

The IRS is seeking applicants who will carry a gun and “be willing to use deadly force, if necessary,” the Washington Examiner reported. This revelation comes as the administration is set to hire 87,000 new agents.

The president and Congress recently passed legislation allowing the government to add a glut of new special agents to root out financial corruption. However, the job description makes it clear this is more than pencil pushing and paper shuffling.

“SAs are known for their financial investigative expertise in areas such as tax fraud, public corruption, cybercrimes, narcotics, terrorism, and much more,” the IRS said. “Today’s sophisticated schemes demand the analytical ability of financial investigators to trace transactions through complex financial records.”

The job description said these new agents must “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.” They must maintain “a level of fitness necessary to effectively respond to life-threatening situations on the job.”

They’ll be required to work “50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends.” However, the most controversial of these is the requirement that agents be reading, willing, and able to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”

This immediately caused an uproar on social media and had commentators speculating what the IRS would be up to in order to list such criteria. According to Fox Business, the job post was briefly taken down but reappeared after the news outlet made an inquiry.

It’s just speculation at this time to say that these agents will be part of a crackdown on regular Americans or perhaps even Biden’s political enemies. However, it’s a fact that the investigative arm of the IRS is growing by leaps and bounds — and that is never a good sign for anyone.
