New IRS Chief Charles Rettig May Help Reform Embattled Agency
Mardiros “Marty” Dakessian of Dakessian Law Ltd. in Los Angeles told Law360 he has known Rettig since around 2000 and that Rettig has the ability to “bring people together” in addition to having demonstrated integrity while representing taxpayers and playing a leadership role in multiple bar associations.
Whatever Rettig’s priorities will be, whether they end up being increased funding for the IRS or improved customer service, he likely will be able to convince the necessary people why these changes are needed to run the organization efficiently, Dakessian said.
“He knows how to rally people, and he checks all the boxes in terms of qualifications and integrity,” he said. “I think he has the capability of certainly getting people to understand his point of view, and I think he will have a lot of credibility no matter who the audience is.”
