Law/Patents
German term or phrase: Rechnungsamt
My source text is a translation from from Brazilian Portuguese, and it is an official certification containing the line "1. und 2. Notariat des Verfügungsamtes, Rechnungsamts und Schatzamts".

(By the way, Freetranslation gives me the delightful translation of this as "calculation velvet". We will all be out of business soon :-)

"IRS"
Explanation:
Don't know if this fits your context, Chris, but stateside the equivalent of "Rechnungsamt / Finanzamt" is commonly referred to as "IRS", or "Infernal Revenue Service", oops "Internal Revenue Service", of course!
