An Internal Revenue Service internal report shows heavily armed agents simulating an assault on a suburban home as part of their training.
The training was featured in the 2021 IRS annual report, which shows agents at the agency’s National Criminal Investigation Training Academy (NCITA), which is located within the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick, Georgia.
The report documents how the agents are given “firearms training” and another image shows agents wearing tactical clothing that says ‘POLICE’ and ‘IRS-CI’.
Training also includes “physical fitness conditioning and use of force training, which includes firearms, weaponless tactics, and building entry,” according to the report.
“In addition to SAIT, NCITA assists in providing advanced training to special agents in use of force, firearms instruction, defensive tactics, and building entry.”
Another image shows agents having entered a house with guns drawn.
The training simulation is likely to prompt concern following the revelation of an IRS job posting that announced it was looking to hire people who are ready to kill.
The job ad listed one of the “major duties” of IRS agents to be able to “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.”
The IRS subsequently deleted the job posting, which was discovered after the Democrats introduced a new bill that would give $80 billion in funding to the IRS to hire 87,000 new IRS agents.
$45.6 billion contained in the ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ will be specifically designated for IRS “enforcement.”
Although the Biden administration claims the newly empowered IRS will target the rich, 75% of IRS audits target Americans making under $200,000 a year.
