Toward that end, President Biden has officially nominated a new Commissioner to head up the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The name of Danny Werfel, the head of Boston Consulting Group’s global public sector practice, was sent to the US Senate for confirmation as the new IRS Commissioner. If confirmed by the Senate, Werfel will take the post formerly held by Chuck Rettig, who was appointed to the post by former President Trump. He will be charged with overseeing the agency plan to update its staffing, customer service and technology needs with $80 billion in new funding appropriated as part of the so-called Inflation Reduction Act that Biden signed into law in August. Werfel previously served in a number of federal agencies beginning in 1997 and was appointed controller of the Office of Management and Budget in 2009 by President Obama. He was named acting IRS Commissioner by Obama in 2013 in the wake of the IRS scandal over the agency targeting conservative non-profit organizations for closer scrutiny.
