Richard J. Morgante and Pamela G. Watson have been named to the top two posts in the Wage and Investment Division, the Internal Revenue Service unit that serves most individual taxpayers. Morgante, currently the division's deputy commissioner, will move up to W&I commissioner, and Watson, now the division's compliance director,will succeed him as W&I's second highest executive. Both appointments will take effect in early July. Morgante succeeds Henry Lamar, who is retiring after 34 years with the IRS, the last two as W&I commissioner."Rich and Pam make a strong team, and their leadership and experience will help us effectively serve taxpayers and enforce the law," said IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson. Based in Atlanta, W&I has processing and customer service responsibility for virtually all taxpayers, processing approximately 175 million paper and electronic returns for individuals and businesses last year, answering 67.3 million automated and assistor calls, and serving over 7 million customers face-to-face.
