The Internal Revenue Service is looking to hire armed special agents nationwide as the Biden regime seeks to beef up enforcement after Congress approved nearly $80 billion in additional funding for the agency last year as a part of the Orwellian-titled Inflation Reduction Act.
According to a job posting on the IRS website, the agency’s Criminal Investigation Division is looking to add new agents who will be authorized to carry a firearm and “willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”
Under the headline “We’re Hiring Special Agents Now!,” the website states “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,” the announcement reads. “Because of the expertise required to conduct these complex financial investigations, IRS Special Agents are considered the premier financial investigators for the Federal government,”
On Thursday, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Danny Werfel confirmed that the agency plans for the new hires during his testimony to the House Ways and Means Committee, responding to a question from Rep. Adrian Smith (R-Neb.) on the number of new armed agents that will be fielded.
The IRS was given the green light to hire 87,000 new agents with the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act that Biden signed into law last summer despite warnings from Republican lawmakers of an army of government enforcers that will shake down ordinary Americans to fund the regime’s costly climate initiatives.
“Stop Biden’s shadow army of 87,000 IRS agents,” tweeted Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) in August 2022 when there was still a chance to stop the monstrous legislative package.

According to the job posting, the new hires should “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments” and “must be willing to use force up to and including the use of deadly force.”
Applicants are informed that they are expected to “adhere to the highest standards of conduct, especially in maintaining honesty and integrity,” and to work “a minimum of 50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends
The new hires are also expected to “maintain a level of fitness necessary to effectively respond to life-threatening situations on the job.”
According to the IRS website: “The American system of taxation is based on the premise that all income is taxable (which includes illegally earned income). In many instances, proving that a taxpayer willfully attempted to hide income from the Federal Government is an integral part of proving other criminal activity including fraud, money laundering or Bank Secrecy Act violations. Criminal Investigation continues to fulfill the important role of helping to ensure the integrity and fairness of our nations’ tax system.”
“Criminal Investigation Special Agents are part of a diverse workforce that mirrors the taxpaying public we serve,” the job posting reads.
