Publisher Tax Analysts has tapped former Treasury official Pamela F. Olson and former Internal Revenue Service director Larry Langdon for seats on its board.

Olson, currently a partner at the law firm of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, previously served for nearly two years as assistant Treasury secretary for tax policy, providing the Treasury secretary with policy analysis and recommendations concerning all aspects of federal taxation, including legislative proposals, regulatory guidance and tax treaties. She was the first woman ever to hold that post.

Langdon, now a partner and director of the global tax practice at Mayer, Brown, Rowe & Maw LLP, served from December 1999 to May 2003 as the first commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service's Large and Midsize Business Division, which is responsible for corporate and partnership taxpayers. While at the IRS, he oversaw a workforce of 6,200 with an annual budget of more than $680 million.
