Joe Biden is hiring 30,000 new IRS agents over the next two years and plans to arm nearly 5,000 of these jackboots for “tax enforcement” duties.
YOU — in the Middle Class — are his target.
The new hires were announced on Thursday by the administration which said that Biden is sinking $80 million into the plan.
Per the Washington Free Beacon:
The tax agency, in its long-awaited Strategic Operating Plan, said it will obligate about $8.64 billion of the new funding during the 2023 and 2024 fiscal years, and that 8,782 of the new hires during those years will be enforcement staff.
“The IRS is going to hire more data scientists than they ever have for enforcement purposes,” U.S. Deputy Treasury Secretary Wally Adeyemo told reporters, adding that these would complement more traditional tax attorneys and revenue agents in using new data analytics technology to identify audit targets.
The IRS also will continue to ramp up customer service hiring after taking on 5,000 new taxpayer services staff in recent months to answer telephones, reopen taxpayer assistance centers and process tax returns.
Including those new employees, customer services hiring will total 13,883 full-time-equivalent staff over the two-year period, according to the 148-page plan.
But a significant portion of these new hires will replace the nearly 12,000 IRS employees expected to retire over the next two years — including more than 4,700 enforcement staff, a U.S. Treasury official said.
Biden has been salivating to take more money from the Middle Class for decades.
Most of the money in America is in the hands of the Middle Class simply because there is more of us than there are “the rich.” And Biden wants that money for his wild spending.
