taxnotesalliantgroup’s National Director of Tax and former IRS Acting Commissioner, Steven Miller, was recently quoted in Tax Notes praising the appointment of Rosemary Sereti as the new deputy commissioner of the IRS Large Business and International (LB&I) Division.

Steven Miller, former acting IRS commissioner and currently with alliantgroup, praised the decision to promote Sereti. “I think she’s splendid,” he said, adding that he’s known her since he was the commissioner of what was formerly the Large and Midsize Business Division.

As the article notes, Sereti’s appointment comes at a time when LB&I is facing major organizational changes. LB&I Commissioner Douglas O’Donnell announced last September that sweeping changes would be made next year to streamline both compliance and enforcement. In the Tax Notes release, Miller comments on the challenges ahead for the current commissioner and newly appointed deputy commissioner.

Miller said the reorganization will be a difficult job for both Sereti and O’Donnell. “I think she was the right choice,” he said, adding that Sereti and O’Donnell will be a wonderful mix because Sereti “brings a lot of knowledge on the domestic side, whereas [O’Donnell] brings a tremendous amount from the foreign international practice of LB&I.”
