More on the keynote speakers:

IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig oversees the IRS, which is responsible for collecting more than $3.5 trillion in tax revenue each year and more than 96% of the total gross receipts of the United States government. In this regard, the continued success of the country depends upon a successful IRS since this revenue funds most government operations and public services. In leading the IRS, Commissioner Rettig has worked to focus attention on the important work of the agency’s employees as well as on improving service to the nation’s taxpayers, balancing appropriate enforcement of the nation’s tax laws while respecting taxpayer rights, with a particular focus on traditionally underserved communities.

Ken Corbin is the first Chief Taxpayer Experience Officer for the IRS and also serves as Commissioner of the IRS Wage and Investment division. Under his leadership, the Taxpayer Experience Office will set the strategic direction for improving the taxpayer experience and identifying opportunities to make continuous improvements in real time for taxpayers and the tax professional community.

Marc Randolph is a veteran Silicon Valley entrepreneur, advisor, and investor. As co-founder and founding CEO of Netflix, he laid much of the groundwork for a service that’s grown to 150 million subscribers, and fundamentally altered how the world experiences media.
