The Governing Statutes1

The "governing statutes,"

in the case of IRS, include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  1. The Administrative Procedure Act itself1;
  2. The Paperwork Reduction Act; and,
  3. The Federal Records Act; and,
  4. The National Archives Act; and,
  5. The Freedom of Information Act, and,
  6. The Privacy Act.

And also certain Acts governing other agencies in particular, but which affect IRS:

  1. The Social Security Act;
  2. The Immigration and Nationality Act; and,
  3. The IRS Restructuring and Reform Act; and,
  4. The Wagner-Peyser Act; and,
  5. The Railroad Retirement Act.

IRS must, of course, also comply — in all respects — with the Act of August 16, 1954:

  1. The Internal Revenue Code.

We’ll start with that, and the duties imposed upon those administering it.

Forward to Discussion: The Notice Requirement

1 "Annotations" under the Administrative Procedure Act require federal agencies to take, "official notice," of "governing statutes". This means that IRS — although this is true of ALL Acts governing ALL agencies — must be officially aware of, AND COMPLY WITH, the Acts of Congress specified above.
