IRS is Packing Heat

The IRS is hiring: special gun-carrying agents in all 50 states. Why does the tax man need to be packing?

The IRS website says that this is for the Criminal Investigation (CI) division that investigates financial crimes, money laundering, tax-related identity theft and terrorist financing efforts. Aggressively so apparently!

The job description says that these agents must be prepared to defend themselves with their firearms and be willing to use deadly force.

Usually, the IRS just sends letters but sometimes a letter doesn’t cut it.

Ironically the new IRS tax code requires taxpayers to report stolen money. So they trust criminals will report their profits but are equipped with guns if they don’t.
