New IRS Division Supports Retail, Food & Pharmacy Biz
One of the effects of the modernized IRS is the necessity to service businesses faster and resolve issues before they become too difficult to handle.
A new section of the Large and Mid-Size Business Division (LMSB) will focus on just that for the food, retail and pharmaceutical industries. In addition, this includes any business dealing in food and beverages, agricultural commodities and farms.
Leading the effort is CPA Bob Brazzil, who will serve as industry director for the LMSB, which is expected to handle more than 200,000 corporations and partnerships at levels of more than $5 million in assets.
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.
