Washington (Sept. 14, 2004) — The Internal Revenue Service has appointed Nancy J. Marks to the position of division counsel/associate chief counsel for tax exempt and government entities.

The appointment became effective Sept. 5. 

"Nan Marks is a true asset to the Office of Chief Counsel,” said Donald L. Korb, IRS chief counsel. “We, and American taxpayers generally, are fortunate that people as talented as Nan have chosen to dedicate their careers to public service with this office."

The division counsel/associate chief counsel provides executive oversight for the 160-person legal staff in Washington and seven field offices. The office provides legal counsel and representation on diverse issues, including exempt organizations, employment taxes, executive compensation and other employee benefits, tax exempt bonds, and federal, state, local and Indian tribal governments.

Since 1994, Marks has served as the deputy division counsel/deputy associate chief counsel.  After receiving her law degree in 1981, she joined the Office of Chief Counsel in the Interpretative Division, and served in the EBEO Division as special assistant, technical assistant for legislation, and assistant branch chief for exempt organizations. She also has served as a trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice.
