Doug Shulman, the 47th Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, has stated that he will leave the IRS at the end of his five-year term. Ordinarily, that would be November 12, 2012, but since it is a holiday, November 9 will be his last day. Steven Miller, the Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement will serve as acting commissioner until a new Commissioner is appointed. Miller is a 25-year veteran with the agency.
