Department of the Treasury

The Department of the Treasury was established in 1789, and prints all United States currency as well as collecting federal taxes through the IRS. It is administered by the Secretary of the Treasury, who is a member of the Cabinet. In 2003, as many federal agencies were reorganized in response to the September 11 attacks,, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, as well as the Secret Service and other departments were transferred out of the Treasury Department.
