TAX SWEET TAX - IRS IS HIRING LARGE
IRS got from Congress $80 Billons in new added funding.
The IRS is looking to hire 30,000 new employees over the next two years. Included new hires are data scientists, data miners, CPAs, finance MBAs, and tax lawyers. The new hires will be used to improve tax enforcement and customer service.
AI came to the rescue just in time. The IRS is also expected to invest in new technology (AI), to help with these efforts.
The new IRS employees will come from a variety of sources. Some of these employees may be poached from private tax preparation companies, such as H&R Block Jackson Hewitt, EY Consulting and Turbo Tax. However, others - the IRS is expecting to hire new graduates and experienced professionals from additional fields.

Other companies may be able to adapt to the new environment by offering new services or expanding into new markets.
