Statement of the IRS Oversight Board on the Resignation of
IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson

The IRS Oversight Board commends IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson for his service to the IRS and the nation. On behalf of Board members, Chairman Paul B. Jones said, “Commissioner Everson was a vigorous advocate of a visible and effective enforcement program and greater integrity among tax professionals. The IRS’ Business Systems Modernization efforts improved steadily under his leadership. His tenure was also marked by progress on all of the IRS’ strategic goals and maintaining the critical balance between customer service and enforcement which is so important to improving overall taxpayer compliance. That is a legacy of which he can be justifiably proud and the Board wishes him all the very best in his new position leading the American Red Cross.”
