IRS: Armed and read to shoot you for your taxes! – 87,000 auditors being hired

[This is crazy nonsense. I've never heard of anything like this before – even in Africa. Methinks there are lots of top people who need to be hanged. Jan]

IRS STAFFED UP. ARMED UP.

File This Under: Too Ridiculous.

The IRS is adding 87,000 auditors paid for by an $80 billion appropriation in the so-called Inflation Reduction Act.

However, the IRS isn’t just staffing up…

Our auditors at OpenTheBooks.com found that the IRS purchased of tens of millions of dollars in guns, ammunition, and military-style equipment since 2006.

In fact, the IRS has stockpiled 5 million rounds of ammunition and 4,500 guns. For example, their gun locker includes 539 long-barrel rifles, 621 shotguns, and 15 sub-machine guns.

Thankfully, the issue is getting more attention, as legislation has been introduced in Congress to ‘Disarm The IRS.”

We broke the news in 2021 – Read It All Here!

“The Internal Revenue Service, with its 2,159 ‘Special Agents,’ spent between $21.3 million on guns, ammunition and military-style equipment between fiscal years 2006 and 2019,” we wrote then.

Yesterday, Stephen Moore picked up our report and lamented in the Washington Examiner: “How many of the new 87,000 agents will be armed? And why does a tax collection agency need guns anyway?”

Tucker Carlson launched the national news on this last week and properly cited our organization. Watch the segment here:

We were the first to bring this issue to light.

And we’ve been keeping the heat on this issue for years. In 2016, we authored the editorial at The Wall Street Journal, Why Does The IRS Need Guns.

Thanks to your support, we’re able to bring transparency to ridiculous government spending.

Now, lawmakers are taking action.

Remember, It’s Your Money!
