IRS Plans New Leadership Structure

IRS has announced plans for a new organizational structure featuring one deputy IRS Commissioner, instead of two. In addition, four new IRS Chief positions will oversee taxpayer service, tax compliance, information technology, and operations.
The new structure, with four Chiefs reporting to the agency’s top leadership, aims to strengthen oversight and provide new flexibility with virtually no impact on IRS employees. These changes are anticipated to be put in place in early 2024.
The new IRS Deputy Commissioner role will be filled by Doug O’Donnell, currently the Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement. Mr. O’Donnell, who served as acting IRS Commissioner from November 2022 through March 2023, has spent more than 37 years at IRS in a variety of roles. Learn more here.
