Strategic Goals


The IRS Strategic Goals will guide resource decisions, programs and operations to meet the changing needs and expectations of taxpayers and members of the tax community who serve taxpayers.

IRS Strategic Plan Logo. The IRS Strategic Plan is represented by a circular logo. The IRS’s six strategic goals fall under three overarching categories—mission, people, and foundation. These three categories comprise the outside ring of the circular logo.  The first two goals—enable and empower taxpayers and protect the integrity of the tax system—sit under mission. The next two goals—collaborate with external partners and cultivate a well-equipped, diverse, flexible and engaged workforce—sit under people.
