A 2021 report shows armed agents raiding a suburban home – leading some to believe this could be the playbook for the 87,000 agents to be hired by Joe Biden.
The images are part of the National Criminal Investigation Training Academy (NCITA). According to the IRS, the primary focus of this training is to build the “fundamentals of financial investigations, and agents learn to recognize the elements of tax offenses and methods of proof unique to federal tax investigations. They acquire the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to be federal law enforcement’s finest financial investigators.”
Agents are also trained in use of force. “…NCITA assists in providing advanced training to special agents in use of force, firearms instruction, defensive tactics, and building entry…”
The Biden administration announced last week the hiring of 87,000 additional IRS agents as part of the Democrats’ Inflation Reduction Act. IRS job postings showed applicants must “carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary”.
