    IRS is the Internal Revenue Service which operates the tax laws that Congress has passed to produce income that pays the expenses of maintaining the gov't

    and when one wins a gift of some sort, if the value is $600 or more that is considered a form of income to the one who wins and will have to declare it on his income tax return and pay the taxes on it

    and come after me? that refers to those who fail to fulfill their tax obligations and IRS has agents who pursue these dead beats and eventually put them in jail--Bernie Madoff for one
