Fed Life — Mar. 22, 2023

The IRS has had a Senate-confirmed commissioner for a few weeks now. Danny Werfel has a lot to do. He’ll need every employee in the agency to get anything significant done. One crucial group sometimes doesn’t get the respect it should, namely the ranks of IRS middle managers. For what that very group hopes for from the new commissioner, I spoke with the president of the IRS-based Federal Managers Association, Chad Hooper.
It doesn’t happen all that often and may seem highly unlikely now. But federal agency reductions in force are not unheard of. In such a situation, you’ve got rights, as we hear from Tully Rinckey managing partner, attorney Michael Fallings.
