Nationality American
Education Bryn Mawr
Title Taxpayer Advocate

Nina E. Olson is the current United States Taxpayer Advocate, and as such head of the Office of the Taxpayer Advocate, a government office dedicated to helping taxpayers solve their problems with the Internal Revenue Service.

National Taxpayer Advocate duties

Olson is the only IRS employee authorized to make legislative proposals directly to Congress. Twice a year, she identifies the top problems taxpayers face to the IRS and Congress, and analyses how the IRS can ameliorate those problems. "No one in the treasury department and no IRS employees, including the Commissioner of Revenue and anyone from the Office of Management and Budget, can see the report before I deliver it to Congress," Olson says, "I am truly an independent voice inside the IRS."[1]

In 2014 Olson predicted that the 2015 "filing season is going to be the worst filing season since I’ve been the National Taxpayer Advocate; I’d love to be proved wrong, but I think it will rival the 1985 filing season when returns disappeared." [2]
