Zuckerman Named Head of Employee Plans Rulings & Agreements

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has named Andres E. Zuckerman as the new Director of Rulings and Agreements in the Employee Plans division. Zuckerman will be responsible for developing and managing the IRS’s up-front compliance programs for Employee Plans, including the EP voluntary compliance programs, the determination letter program and the development of guidance and rulings.

“We welcome Andy back to TE/GE,” Steven T. Miller, Tax Exempt and Government Entities (TE/GE) Commissioner, said in a statement announcing the appointment. “He will be an important member of our new EP team, and help us continue to improve the administrative efficiency with which we deliver service and to enhance compliance in the pension community.”

Zuckerman comes to Employee plans from his position as the Wage and Investment division’s Field director for Accounts Management for the IRS Philadelphia Campus. He has also served as the Assistant to the Director of Pre-Filing and Technical Guidance in the IRS’ Large and Mid-Size Business division. This private sector experience includes working as an attorney and a consultant for more than 19 years in law, accounting and actuarial consulting firms specializing in tax, ERISA, employee benefits, executive compensation and employment.

Zuckerman replaces Joseph Grant, who was recently named Director of Employee Plans. He begins his new assignment as Director of Rulings and Agreements in the Employee Plans division in mid-November.
