In the early 1950s, the name of the Bureau of Internal Revenue was changed to "Internal Revenue Service" (IRS), and the ATU was given the additional responsibility of enforcing federal tobaccotax laws.
The agency's name was officially changed to the "Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives" in recognition to the agency's role in explosives regulation and enforcement; however the Bureau retained the use of its original acronym, "ATF", for all purposes.
Additionally, the collector of federal taxrevenue derived from the production of tobacco and liquor products originally handled by ATF were transferred to the newly established Alcohol and TobaccoTax and TradeBureau (TTB), which remained within the Treasury Department.
