Mission Statement of the IRS

The mission of the IRS is to provide America’s taxpayers with top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and by applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.

This is in contrast to the previous Mission Statement which read:

The purpose of the Internal Revenue Service is to collect the proper amount of tax revenue at the least cost, serve the public by continually improving the quality of our products and services, and perform in a manner warranting the highest degree of public confidence in our integrity, efficiency, and fairness.

In light of the above, it is not surprising that IRS management appears to be enhancing the agency’s focus on enforcement and compliance- as indicated by recent IRS pronouncements and public communications.
