Immoral Robbery Service (Internal Revenue Service or IRS nickname)

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) collects revenue for the United States federal government. The IRS was nicknamed “Immoral Robbery Swindlers” on Twitter on January 12, 2017. A similar nickname of “Immoral Robbery Service” was posted on Twitter on November 30, 2017, and has been printed on shirts sold by High Impact Flix.

The IRS has also been nicknamed the “Infernal Revenue Service” (cited in print since at least 1956), “Income Reduction Service” (cited in print since at least 1990), “Internal Rectal Service” (used by Congressman James Traficant in 2000), “Internal Rotten Scoundrels” (cited at an “Abolish the IRS” rally in 2013), “Internal Revenge Service” (popular since April and May 2013) and “IRSS” (IRS + SS, popular since May 2013).

Wikipedia: Internal Revenue Service
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the revenue service of the United States federal government. The government agency is a bureau of the Department of the Treasury, and is under the immediate direction of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue. The IRS is responsible for collecting taxes and the administration of the Internal Revenue Code. It has also overseen various benefit programs, and enforces portions of the Affordable Care Act.

The first income tax was assessed in 1862 to raise funds for the American Civil War, with a rate of 3%. Today the IRS collects over $2.4 trillion each tax year. It processes around 234 million tax returns annually.
