Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Definition

The Internal Revenue Service or IRS for short is a government agency underneath the Department of Treasury. Furthermore, it is primarily responsible for administration and collections of federal income taxes.

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Meaning

President Abraham Lincoln created the Internal Revenue Service during the Civil War and Reconstruction period to fund the war effort. Since then, the agency has been primarily responsible for funding the U.S. Government operations and services. The IRS is responsible for not only collecting from individuals and businesses, but also preparation and distribution of IRS forms. It is also responsible for conducting audits of individuals or businesses to ensure accuracy and that fraudulent activity has not occurred. A commissioner, known as the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, runs the IRS. Furthermore, the President fills this is a position. Like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) the commissioner cannot be fired once appointed. This job security allows the commissioner to perform what is necessary without having to worry about getting fired.
