The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a bureau of the Department of the Treasury and is one of the world's most efficient tax administrators. IRS provides America's taxpayers top quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and enforces the law with integrity and fairness to all. The IRS receives more than 100 million individual tax returns annually and issues millions of refunds. More than 90 percent of individual returns received are filed electronically. Using new screening criteria, the IRS has stopped billions in fraudulent refunds claimed by identity thieves.
