I wish I was making this up, but it's actually a real thing. There's a report that the IRS is looking for gun-carrying agents for every single state and yes, that includes both Missouri and Illinois.

I first saw this shared by Americans for Tax Payer Reform, but this isn't an opinion piece by them. Nope. It's a job link directly from the IRS website. I grabbed a screenshot in case it gets taken down. Here's what they're looking for in an agent:


If you can't read the fine print, the last line on the IRS job listing says (and I quote):

Carry a firearm; must be prepared to protect him/herself or others from physical attacks at any time and without warning and use firearms in life-threatening situations; must be willing to use force up to and including the use of deadly force.

OK already. So I will be more careful when I file that 1040 next time, OK?

The good news if you're looking for work is this job has great benefits including:

  • Competitive Salary based on qualifications and duty location
  • 11 Paid Holidays
  • 13 Vacation Days
  • 13 Sick Days
  • Health and Life Insurance
  • Federal Law Enforcement Retirement
  • Thrift Savings Program

Oh, and you get to pack heat and pretend you're Wyatt Earp, so there's that.
