Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman today announced the appointment of Terence (Terry) V. Milholland as the agency’s new Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
As the CTO, Milholland will be responsible for all aspects of the systems that operate the nation’s tax infrastructure. He will oversee a multi-billon dollar budget and the 7,000-person organization that maintains over 400 systems that enable the processing of over 200 million tax returns each year. The CTO position will report directly to the Deputy Commissioner Operations Support, with the entire Modernization and Information Technology Services division, including its current CIO, reporting to him.
“Terry has a proven track record of delivery in large and complex technology environments,” Shulman said. “His experience and leadership will be a great complement to the critical work that the talented IRS technology team performs every day on behalf of the American people.”
Milholland brings almost 30 years of technology leadership to the IRS. Most recently, he was the executive vice president and CTO for Visa International. Prior to that, he was CIO and CTO for Electronic Data Systems Corporation and before that CIO for The Boeing Company.
Milholland received a Bachelor of Science degree in physics from the University of Maryland and a Master of Science degree in computer science from George Washington University.
