IRS Names New Director of Electronic Tax & Credits
The Internal Revenue Service named David R. Williams as director of the electronic tax administration and refundable credits unit.
The electronic tax administration office oversees the e-file program that is now used by most taxpayers, the IRS said, as well as the IRS.gov Web site.
Williams most recently was IRS director in charge of the earned income tax credit (EITC), health coverage tax credit and telephone excise tax refund programs, the agency said. Williams previously served as deputy assistant secretary at the Treasury Department.
The IRS also announced that Debra Holland will become the director of the EITC program. Both appointments will become effective later this year, the agency said. Holland most recently was director of the pre-refund program office.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
