Doug Shulman: Five Years As IRS Commissioner Is Plenty for Me, Thanks

 

Douglas Shulman, commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, said he doesn’t intend to stay in the job after his five-year term expires in November. “My plan is to leave at the end of my term,” he said during a question-and-answer session today at the National Press Club in Washington. No IRS commissioner has served more than five years and one month since Guy Helvering, whose 10 years in the job ended in 1943. The president nominates the IRS commissioner, who must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate.
Whether of not this will give Shulman enough time to do his own taxes is not immediately known.
