Following up on my previous post: The Hill, Senate Confirms Biden Nominee for Top Treasury Tax Position:
The Senate voted on Wednesday to confirm President Biden’s nominee Lily Batchelder to serve as assistant secretary for tax policy in the Treasury Department.
The upper chamber voted 64-34 to confirm Batchelder, a law professor at New York University and a former Obama administration official, on Wednesday afternoon.
In the key role, Batchelder will serve as senior advisor to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen for developing and implementing tax policy. She will oversee the Office of the Tax Legislative Counsel, the Office of the International Tax Counsel, the Office of the Benefits Tax Counsel, and the Office of Tax Analysis.
