For over a year the Internal Revenue Service, which has been taking in a record amount of money from Americans via various taxes, has also been buying bullets and weapons making many people a little nervous about what was possibly coming for this vicious collection machine.
Even before Congress and President Joe Biden give the final OK for the IRS to hire 87,000 more agents in an $80 billion package, the tax agency is revealing a priority job category that could get first dibs on the huge budget expansion.
On its jobs page is a listing of vacancies for special agents to be placed around the country to root out financial fraud.
But these are opening for more than just financial experts: They will also be armed.
Among the job requirements listed: “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
Special agents, who can be placed around the nation and world, have an interesting job, according to the IRS description. They are financial analysts and armed officers ready for a shootout.

“SAs are known for their financial investigative expertise in areas, such as, tax fraud, public corruption, cybercrimes, narcotics, terrorism, and much more. Today’s sophisticated schemes demand the analytical ability of financial investigators to trace transactions through complex financial records,” said the agency.
Once on the trail, they must “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”
They have to work a minimum of 50 hours and be on call 24/7. And they have to look good.
And all for a salary of $50,704-$89,636 and 24 days off.
