Mark Mazur Confirmed as Assistant Treasury Secretary for Tax Policy

Treasury Department SealBloomberg:  Obama Gets First Confirmed Tax Policy Chief in His Term:

The U.S. Senate confirmed Mark Mazur as the top tax policy official in the Treasury Department, marking the first time the post will be filled by a permanent appointee since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.

Mazur, a 56-year-old economist, will become assistant secretary for tax policy after today’s voice vote in Washington. The position has been filled by temporary and acting officials since Obama became president.

Obama’s first nominee, Elizabeth Garrett, withdrew in 2009, citing family concerns. His second candidate, Michael Mundaca, left the administration last year without being confirmed.
