The IRS assists taxpayers and enforces the law to ensure tax responsibilities are met.
In fulfilling this role, the IRS collected revenue from more than 240 million tax returns
in FY 2013. In meeting our responsibilities each year, we face major policy, legislative,
economic, socio-demographic and technological challenges that impact the environment
in which we operate. We will continue to embrace these challenges and the opportunities
they provide to improve the taxpayer experience and effectively enforce the tax law.
