IRS' Tax Exempt Division Getting New Leader

According to BNA Daily Report for Executives (Oct. 25) [subscription required], the Internal Revenue Service's Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division (TE Division) is undergoing another change in leadership.  Tamera Ripperda who replaced the embattled Lois Lerner as director and has apparently successfully streamlined the Division and eliminated a large backlog is moving to become acting deputy commissioner of the Small Business and Self Employed Division.  The new acting head of the TE Division beginning November 14 will be Margaret A. Von Lienen, who is now director of examinations for exempt organizations.
