Trump chooses Charles Rettig to lead the IRS
President Donald Trump announced yesterday his intent to nominate Charles Rettig to be Commissioner of Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
The House Ways and Means Chairman Kevin Brady has released the following statement:
“I am pleased to see President Trump moving forward with a new leader at the IRS who is focused on serving taxpayers and administering our new tax code fairly, effectively, and with integrity. With a long history of helping families and job creators navigate the tax code and stand up to the IRS when the agency is wrong, Chuck Rettig as the new IRS commissioner is just the partner we need as we work to overhaul our nation’s tax administrator.
“Taxpayers have rightfully lost faith in the IRS after years of bad leadership, abuses of power, and failed policies. With a new tax code and a willing partner at the IRS who shares our commitment to taxpayer service, now is the time to redesign the agency so it works for all Americans. I look forward to working with Mr. Rettig to do just that. ”
