The IRS

Who is the IRS?

The IRS or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS for short) is the largest agency in the United States Department of the Treasury. The IRS' job is to try to uphold the federal tax laws by encouraging the highest degree of voluntary compliance with the tax laws and tax regulations. The IRS is a complex organization and although the IRS mission stresses fairness in their taxation, tax payers still need to be aware of the tax laws and their rights so that they can help the IRS ensure fairness in accordance with the IRS mission.

The IRS Mission

The IRS mission, according to the IRS, is to "provide America 's tax payers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all."

While the IRS is usually not responsible for the tax increases or the complexity of the tax laws, the IRS gets most of the blame. The IRS is an easy target for blames for all tax problems.
