Charles Rettig, President Trump’s nominee for IRS commissioner has started meeting with members of the Senate Finance Committee . Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said he saw no issues with the nomination but would not make any final decisions until after Rettig’s hearing. A nomination hearing has not yet been scheduled, though Chairman Hatch has indicated that he hopes to process Rettig’s nomination “in short order.”
In the meantime, stakeholders are slowly beginning to coalesce around Rettig. The National Association of Enrolled Agents (NAEA) announced its support for Rettig, noting that he is the right candidate to address issues facing the agency.
