If the irs is an internal revenue service...?

Is the irs collecting revenue?
Update: Jimmy, if the irs is collecting revenue, then does a business need to receive revenue so the irs can collect revenue?

Or does a business need to receive profit so the irs can collect revenue?
Update 2: lare..."to finance the federal Government" Does this indicate federal income tax is taxes collected for Federal Income not income of the one being collected from?
Update 3: NG, you wrote "from the income of individuals and businesses".

Are you refering to living or live individuals when comparing with a business income?
Update 4: NG also, if everyone is receiving value (income), then who is creating value?
Update 5: NG, also if you could explain what type of funds a business uses to pay for operating the business such as water and electricity and property tax (ground rent).
Update 6: "NG, Lets compare your statement...."
"Federal income taxes are taxes collected for Federal income" to...
"Individual income taxes are taxes collected for the Federal Government"
What is wrong with the above comparison between the two statements?
Update 7: NG, can you answer my question "If everyone is receiving value (income) then who is creating the value being received?
Update 8: NG concerning..."individual income tax are collected for the Federal Government", you can compare that with Federal Income tax is collected for the Federal Government. Now compare... Individual income tax is being collected...would be collected for the individual is a closer match for.... Federal income... show more NG concerning..."individual income tax are collected for the Federal Government", you can compare that with Federal Income tax is collected for the Federal Government.

Now compare...
Individual income tax is being collected...would be collected for the individual is a closer match for....
Federal income taxes is being collected...for the Federal Government

NG, can you see your mistake?
Update 9: NG, The irs is a Revenue collecting agency that collects revenue. Businesses receive revenue the irs collects.

But when the irs collects from employees/laborers paycheck, is also revenue for the irs.
The difference?
Businesses receive revenue, employees and laborers do not. Is this correct?
Update 10: NG You wrote "wages are income for the individual"......your theory is incorrect. As I mentioned already, the employee or laborer *creates* a paycheck. They do not just 'receive" a paycheck as a busuiness receives checks from income. If they did, they would not need to work 'before'... show more NG You wrote "wages are income for the individual"......your theory is incorrect. As I mentioned already, the employee or laborer *creates* a paycheck. They do not just 'receive" a paycheck as a busuiness receives checks from income. If they did, they would not need to work 'before' getting their paycheck.They would just wait for it to come in the mail (or computer). Before a business can receive value (income) someone else needs to *create* value.
Where is the value for the numbers in a ledger book coming from? The value just doesn't magically appear as the numbers are recorded in the ledger.
Update 11: NG, The two statements do not match....
*Federal Income tax* is for the Federal Governments income
*Individual income tax* is for the federal Governments income
(According to the first statement, Individual income tax would be for the individual, not the Federal Government).
Update 12: Revenue is suppose to be collected *indirectly* through products/sales/investments NOT directly from someone labor.
