"The Problem With Wearing Two Hats"

Lawrence M. Axelrod
Tax Notes

"Last month the administration announced the appointment of Treasury Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy David Kautter as acting IRS commissioner upon the expiration of Commissioner John Koskinen’s five-year term in November. By all accounts, the assistant secretary is a man of unimpeachable integrity and would never allow the status of the IRS as an independent, nonpolitical agency to be compromised. Still, by accepting the appointment, he has put himself in an untenable situation."  [Excerpt from "The Problem With Wearing Two Hats"]
