Shulman (pictured) has been IRS commissioner since March 24 2008. IRS commissioners are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate for a term of up to five years with their terms ending on November 12 of their final year (November 9 is the last work day of Shulman's term because November 12 is a federal holiday).

The identity of the permanent commissioner will be a decision for either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney after the presidential election on November 6.
