IRS Chief Counsel Korb to Step Down No Later Than Jan. 19

Korb_6BNA reports that IRS Chief Counsel Donald L. Korb will will step down from his post no later than January 19, the last day of President Bush's administration, leaving the next president free to name his successor.  Korb, who before becomming Chief Counsel on April 14, 2004 was a tax partner in the Cleveland, Ohio law firm of Thomson Hine, did not reveal his future plans. 

Korb's stint as Chief Counsel marks his third tour of duty with the IRS: in the mid-1970s, he was an attorney/adviser in the Chief Counsel’s office; in the mid-1980s, he was a Special Assistant to IRS Commissioner Roscoe Egger and coordinated the Service's involvement in the legislative process that resulted in the Tax Reform Act of 1986.
