Tax Code, Regulations and Official Guidance

Internal Revenue Code |   Treasury (Tax) Regulations    |    Other Official Guidance

Internal Revenue Code

Federal tax law begins with the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), enacted by Congress in Title 26 of the United States Code (26 U.S.C.).

Note: The IRC materials retrieved via the above functions are provided as a public service by The Legal Information Institute of Cornell University Law School, not the IRS.

CAUTION.  The version of the IRC underlying the retrieval functions presented above is generated from the official version of the U.S. Code made available to the public by Congress.  However, this version is only current through the 1st Session of the 112th Congress convened in 2011.  Before relying on an IRC section retrieved from this or any other publicly accessible version of the U.S. Code, please check the U.S. Code Classification Tables  published by the U.S. House of Representatives to verify that there have been no amendments since that session of Congress.

Finally, the IRC is complex and its sections must be read in the context of the entire Code and the court decisions that interpret it.  At a minimum, please do not be misled by the false interpretations of the IRC promoted by the purveyors of anti-tax law evasion schemes.

Other Official Tax Guidance

In addition to participating in the promulgation of Treasury (Tax) Regulations, the IRS publishes a regular series of other forms of official tax guidance, including revenue rulings, revenue procedures, notices, and announcements. See Understanding IRS Guidance - A Brief Primer  for more information about official IRS guidance versus non-precedential rulings or advice.

The authoritative instrument for the distribution of all forms of official IRS tax guidance is the Internal Revenue Bulletin (IRB), a weekly collection of these and other items of general interest to the tax professional community.

Note: The IRB materials retrieved from the above resources are provided by IRS Media and Publications.

The IRS frequently releases individual items in advance of their publication in the IRB.  See the Advance Notice for Tax Professionals page for more information about the "early drop" of these items.  And if you'd like to receive automated email notifications about these items, please feel free to subscribe to our IRS GuideWire service.

Finally, see the Applicable Federal Rates (AFR) page for a series of revenue rulings providing certain prescribed rates for federal income tax purposes.  These AFR revenue rulings are always released before they are officially published in the IRB.

PLEASE NOTERulings and procedures reported in the IRB do not have the force and effect of Treasury tax regulations, but they may be used as precedents. In contrast, any documents not published in the IRB cannot be relied on, used, or cited as precedents in the disposition of other cases.

In applying rulings and procedures published in the IRB, the effect of subsequent legislation, regulations, court decisions, rulings, and procedures must be considered.  In addition, all parties are cautioned against reaching the same conclusions in other cases unless the facts and circumstances are substantially the same.
