From the BBC:
"The controversial head of the UK tax authority - Dave Hartnett - will retire in the summer of 2012, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has announced.
Ms Homer is permanent secretary at the Department for Transport.
She takes over from Lesley Strathie, who stepped down last month on health grounds, the tax authority said.
Last month, Mr Hartnett admitted to a committee of MPs that mistakes had been made in a tax deal negotiated by HMRC with Goldman Sachs.
And in September last year, he apologised to 1.4 million people who were receiving letters revealing an underpayment of tax. This came hours after a refusal to apologise brought severe criticism. "
Anyone know what he is getting in terms of payoff, pension and non executive board appointments etc?
Tax does have to be taxing.
