The IRS is a governmental organization that deals with taxing of both individuals as well as businesses. The IRS uses stimulus programs, tax codes, and auctions to help individuals pay their taxes.

IRS Background

The IRS or the Internal Revenue Service is a section of the Department of Treasury. The IRS takes a certain portion of an individual’s pay check to go towards taxes. If too much has been taken, after filing taxes, a person can receive a refund. The Internal Revenue Service can also be owed money if they take too little out of one’s pay check.

Stimulus Information

A stimulus is money given by the government to individuals to help boost the economy. An individual may receive a stimulus from the IRS if they meet the right qualifications. Qualifications can vary and can include different benefits, or a low wage job. Stimulus amounts can vary also based of these qualifications.

Tax Codes

Tax codes are used by an employer to help calculate the proper amount of taxes to take from ones pay check. Tax codes typically consist of numbers and letters and can determine many different things. If a person is coded with the wrong tax code money could be owed to them or they may owe money to the IRS.
