The Secretariat of Federal Revenues is a central agency subordinated directly to the Finance Ministry of Brazil. Its function is to enhance voluntary compliance of tax-related obligations, collect funds for the State, and undergo law enforcement actions to prevent tax evasion and promote fiscal justice. The IRS website is the electronic vehicle to implement these objectives. SRF is using the internet as an instrument of integration between tax authorities and taxpayers since 1997. 90% of all taxpayers use the Receitanet services for generating and submitting their tax returns. The system effectively cuts organisational effort and saves time for users.
