Who is IRS Acting Commissioner Daniel Werfel?

President Obama tapped Daniel Werfel on Thursday to serve as the new acting administrator of the scandal-plagued Internal Revenue Service, succeeding Steven T. Miller, who resigned under pressure Wednesday.

Werfel moved to Washington after earning degrees from Cornell University, Duke University and a law degree from the University of North Carolina. He worked at the OMB before serving briefly as a career attorney at the Justice Department. He returned to the OMB when it was run by Jack Lew, now Treasury secretary.
