What is a Revenue Ruling? [Definition]

Revenue Ruling 
A "Revenue Ruling” (Rev. Rul.) is a public declaration by the Internal Revenue Service that explains how the tax code applies to a particular situation. Revenue Rulings state the official position of the IRS, and can be relied upon by all taxpayers. Revenue rulings are published both in the Federal Register and in the Internal Revenue Bulletin. The numbering system for Revenue Rulings corresponds to the year in which they are issued. For example, Revenue Ruling 2004-86 is the eighty-sixth Revenue Ruling issued in the year 2004. Revenue rulings are different from Revenue Procedures.
