Since-deleted IRS job listing includes - ‘must be willing to use deadly force’

Under a deal worked out by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, the Internal Revenue Service will get the cash infusion it’s long wanted in the economic package that Democrats pushed through Congress before their August break.

The bill spends an extra $79.6 billion on the beleaguered agency over the next 10 years. The plan would generate an additional $203.7 billion in revenue for the federal government over that time frame, for a net gain of more than $124 billion, the Congressional Budget Office projects.

At the same time, the IRS has purchased 4,500 guns and more than 5 million bullets to arm their agents.

In a job listing found at https://www.jobs.irs.gov/ that has since been unpublished, the IRS lists job requirements as working min “50 hours per week, which may include irregular hours, and be on-call 24/7, including holidays and weekends” and “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
