(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) In the aftermath of the U.S. federal government increasing the Internal Revenue Service’s size by 87,000 employees, the bureaucracy has posted jobs for tax-collecting agents who must be willing to use “deadly force” to enforce the tax code, the Liberty Daily reported.

Among the duties listed for the “IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent” job is the willingness and capacity to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
The special agent must also “be willing and able to participate in arrests, execution of search warrants, and other dangerous assignments.”
The IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent unit currently has around 3,000 members, though that number will presumably be increased substantially as the bureaucracy adds tens of thousands of jobs.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., also noted that the IRS is stocking up on guns and ammunition, and that the tax collectors will be targetting Americans making less than $200,000 per year–the sort of thing that one has come to expect from the leftist elites.
87,000 IRS agents will be hired with $80 billion taxpayer dollars when the Senate Reconciliation bill passes this weekend.
And they’re buying more guns & ammo too.
Lower to middle income Americans & small businesses will be the primary targets of Democrat’s new IRS force.

“Lower to middle income Americans & small businesses will be the primary targets of Democrat’s new IRS force,” Greene wrote.
Unfortunately for Americans, the IRS will now be larger than the Pentagon, the Department of State, the FBI, and the Border Patrol combined—and now it is willing to use force to sap Americans of every last penny that they have in order to address President Joe Biden‘s inflationary policies.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., noted that the IRS plans to target small businesses and middle class families in particular.
“This bill creates 87,000 new agents — doubles the size of the IRS,” the senator continued. “Those IRS agents are designed to come after you . . . the small businesses and working families.”
Democrats are making the IRS bigger than the Pentagon, the Department of State, the FBI, and the Border Patrol COMBINED!
Those IRS agents will come after you, not billionaires and big corporations! pic.twitter.com/HYq5cIjXay
