Washington (June 17, 2002) -- The Internal Revenue Service has selected David B. Robison as chief of Appeals. Appeals serves as the administrative forum for any taxpayer contesting an IRS compliance action.

"David B. Robison brings a wealth of experience to Appeals with his 30-year background in IRS programs and operations," said IRS Commissioner Charles O. Rossotti. "His skills will help Appeals as they complete the modernization effort."

Robison will oversee the operations of two work units designed to meet the special needs of Appeals’ customers-- the General Appeals Programs, which consider cases from the Small Business/Self-Employed Division, the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division and the Wage and Investment Division, and the Large Business & Specialty Programs, which specifically focus on cases originating in the Large and Mid-Size Business Division and address the needs of taxpayers with assets over $10 million.

Appeals marks its 75th anniversary this year. It offers fair and impartial assistance to resolve tax controversies without litigation, through faster case resolution and additional alternative dispute resolution initiatives designed to accommodate taxpayer needs.
