The Internal Revenue Service announced on Monday that former IRS executive John M. Dalrymple has been named the deputy commissioner for services and enforcement.
“This is a critical leadership position for the IRS touching on everything from taxpayer service to tax enforcement issues,” IRS Acting Commissioner Danny Werfel said. “During John’s three decades at the IRS, he gained a wealth of first-hand expertise and experience in areas he will be leading. His insight and knowledge of the IRS will be an asset to help keep our core tax operations running smoothly.”
Dalrymple, who will take his position on Sept. 16, previously served as the IRS’ deputy commissioner for operations support from 2003 to 2006.
In his new position, Dalrymple will direct taxpayer-focused IRS operating division, including wage and investment, large business and international, small business/self-employed and tax exempt and government entities.
Dalrymple will also oversee the IRS’ Criminal Investigation Division, as well as the Office of Professional Responsibility, Online Services, Whistleblower Office and Return Preparer Office.
During his IRS career, Dalrymple spent 13 years in the Senior Executive Service. He also served as district director in the north central district from 1995 to 1996, chief operations officer from 1996 to 2000 and commissioner of wage and investment from 2000 to 2003. After his retirement in 2006, he became a director at Deloitte Consulting.
