The IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 prompted the most comprehensive reorganization and modernization of IRS in nearly half a century. The IRS reorganized itself to closely resemble the private sector model of organizing around customers with similar needs.  

To support its structure and ensure accountability, the IRS is divided into three commissioner-level organizations:


Specialized IRS units report directly to the Commissioner's office. The IRS Chief Counsel also reports to the Treasury General Counsel on certain matters.

  • Commissioner, Internal Revenue — John Koskinen

  • Equity, Diversity and Inclusion — Monica Davy, Executive Director 
  • Research, Analysis and Statistics — Rosemary Marcuss, Director
  • Communications and Liaison — Terry Lemons, Chief
  • Office of Compliance Analytics — Dean R. Silverman, Senior Advisor to the Commissioner (Compliance Analytics Initiatives) 

Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement

The Deputy Commissioner reports directly to the Commissioner and oversees the four primary operating divisions and other service and enforcement functions:    

  • Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement — John Dalrymple
  • Wage and Investment Division — Debra Holland, Commissioner
  • Large Business and International Division — Heather Maloy, Commissioner
  • Small Business/Self Employed Division — Karen Schiller, Commissioner
  • Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division — Sunita B. Lough, Commissioner

  • Return Preparer Office — Carol Campbell, Director
  • Office of Professional Responsibility —Karen L. Hawkins, Director 
  • Office of Online Services — Rajive Mathur, Director
  • Whistleblower Office — Stephen A. Whitlock, Director

Deputy Commissioner for Operations Support

The Deputy Commissioner reports directly to the Commissioner and oversees the integrated IRS support functions, facilitating economy of scale efficiencies and better business practices:

  • Deputy Commissioner for Operations Support — Peggy Sherry
  • Chief Technology Officer — Terence V. Milholland
  • Agency-Wide Shared Services — Dave Grant, Chief
  • Human Capital Officer — David Krieg, Chief
  • Chief Financial Officer — Robin Canady

Irs easy form Introduction The law allows you to recover your cost in business or income-producing property through yearly tax deductions. Irs easy form You do this by depreciating your property, that is, by deducting some of your cost on your tax return each year. Irs easy form You can depreciate both tangible property, such as a car, building, or machinery, and certain intangible property, such as a copyright or a patent. Irs easy form The amount you can deduct depends on: How much the property cost, When you began using it, How long it will take to recover your cost, and Which of several depreciation methods you use. Irs easy form Depreciation defined. Irs easy form   Depreciation is a loss in the value of property over the time the property is being used. Irs easy form Events that can cause property to depreciate include wear and tear, age, deterioration, and obsolescence. Irs easy form You can get back your cost of certain property, such as equipment you use in your business or property used for the production of income by taking deductions for depreciation. Irs easy form Black's Law Dictionary Amortization. Irs easy form   Amortization is similar to depreciation. Irs easy form Using amortization, you can recover your cost or basis in certain property proportionately over a specific number of years or months. Irs easy form Examples of costs you can amortize are the costs of starting a business, reforestation, and pollution control facilities. Irs easy form You can find information on amortization inchapter 12 of Publication 535, Business Expenses. Irs easy form Alternative minimum tax. Irs easy form   If you use accelerated depreciation for real property, or personal property that is leased to others, you may be liable for the alternative minimum tax. Irs easy form Accelerated depreciation is any method, that allows recovery at a faster rate in the earlier years than the straight line method.
