IRS Commissioner Nominee Approved


The Senate Finance Committee advanced President Donald Trump’s nomination of Charles Rettig for Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner.

Next Steps

Rettig’s nomination now heads to the full Senate. If confirmed, Rettig will oversee the implementation of tax reform enacted last December under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA). Rettig previously told the committee that restoring taxpayer trust in the IRS would be a top goal as IRS Commissioner. “If I am privileged to serve as Commissioner, my overriding goal will be to strengthen and rebuild trust between the IRS, the American people, and their representatives in Congress,” Rettig said. “That trust is critical to all that the IRS does.”
