WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service today announced the selection of Arthur A. Gross as the agency's Chief Information Officer.

Gross is currently the Deputy Tax Commissioner for Revenue and Information Management in the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance, a position he has held since 1983.

In recognition of his vision and leadership in the modernization project to bring advanced technology to New York State, Gross was awarded the Alfred E. Smith Award of the American Society of Public Administration.

"Arthur possesses a unique blend of knowledge and experience," said IRS Commissioner Margaret Milner Richardson. "We are very fortunate to have him joining our team as we continue to build on our efforts to use technology to make our tax system work better and cost less for American taxpayers."

As the Chief Information Officer of the IRS, Gross will be responsible for the design, development, implementation and operation of the IRS's nationwide computer and telecommunications systems.

Gross received his Bachelor of Science degree at Brooklyn College of the City University of New York and did post-graduate work at the University of Arizona. In his professional career, Gross has over 23 years of experience in developing and implementing large scale technology based programs.
