Official IRS Documents from
Internal Revenue Bulletins

Internal Revenue Bulletins (IRBs) - Are the official publications released weekly by the IRS which contain all the "official" documents that govern our tax system. These documents are released in different formats, and carry titles such as "Revenue Rulings", "Revenue Procedures", "Regulations", "Announcements", "Treasury Decisions", "Notices", etc.

This section can be researched in several ways:

  • You can read summaries of those documents from the IRB cover pages. Beginning in 1996, these summaries are linked to the actual documents.
  • You can search by the type of document, such as Revenue Ruling, Revenue Procedure, etc. All documents are included since 1996 with additional summaries going back to 1989.
  • You can search using our on-site search engine which searches inside PDF files. Use the Search box at the bottom of the page.
