U.S. Department of the Treasury

The U.S. Department of the Treasury's mission is to maintain a strong economy and create economic and job opportunities by promoting the conditions that enable economic growth and stability at home and abroad, strengthen national security by combating threats and protecting the integrity of the financial system, and manage the U.S. Government’s finances and resources effectively. The Department of the Treasury is organized into two major components the Departmental offices and the operating bureaus. The Departmental Offices are primarily responsible for the formulation of policy and management of the Department as a whole, while the operating bureaus carry out the specific operations assigned to the Department. Our bureaus make up 98% of the Treasury work force. The basic functions of the Department of the Treasury include: Managing Federal finances; • Collecting taxes, duties and monies paid to and due to the U.S. and paying all bills of the U.S.; • Currency and coinage; • Managing Government accounts and the public debt; • Supervising national banks and thrift institutions; • Advising on domestic and international financial, monetary, economic, trade and tax policy; • Enforcing Federal finance and tax laws; • Investigating and prosecuting tax evaders, counterfeiters, and forgers.
