Internal Revenue Code

The unified law of taxation in the United States. It outlines how individuals and corporations are taxed as well as which deductions and credits are allowed, and how they are to be applied. The Code also covers estate taxes, gift taxes, and payroll taxes. The current version of the Internal Revenue Code was introduced in 1986, though it has been amended since. Critics of the code contend that it is needlessly complicated.
