Biden to nominate Danny Werfel as IRS commissioner, overseeing $80B to rebuild agency

The IRS, setting course on a decade-long push to rebuild its workforce and modernize its legacy IT, may soon be led by a figure who previously steered the agency through difficult times. The White House announced Thursday that President Joe Biden intends to nominate Danny Werfel to lead the IRS for a five-year term. Werfel holds more than 15 years of federal experience across the George W. Bush and Obama administrations, and previously served as an acting IRS commissioner.
