Think you have what it takes to be the new IRS taxpayer advocate? Then the IRS wants to hear from you, according to Accounting Today. The IRS taxpayer advocate works with taxpayers in addressing problems with the agency's processes and procedures, as well as assessing how it can better serve people. Specifically, that person leads the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service division, which has approximately 1,800 employees and managers across the country, with 79 offices, including at least one in each state, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Currently, that position is held by Nina Olson, who is set to retire at the end of July, after 18 years. Those interested in the position should submit a letter of interest and resume by May 24, 2019, to OfficeofExecutiveServices@irs.gov.
