Look here for some summary statistics from these files, as well as files from other IRS sources.

IRS Statistical Overview
Locate here information on the number of returns filed with IRS, as well as the collections received by, and the refunds paid by, the IRS. There's also statistics on examination activities, taxpayer assistance provided by IRS, and criminal enforcement activities.

Statistics by Topic
Look here for your specific topic. It could include individuals, corporations, or tax exempt organizations. Or, perhaps you're interested in employment, estate, or excise taxes. There's even more, like the international area.
