The Kennedy Plaque

Only one president has ever entered the IRS building: John F. Kennedy . The event was so significant that IRS placed a plaque in the National Office commemorating the event. The plaque is on the third floor in the corridor near 12th Street, outside the Commissionerís Conference Room. It is inscribed with the following words by Mortimer Caplin who was IRS commissioner at the time:

On this site, on May 1, 1961, President John F. Kennedy spoke to Internal Revenue officials and became the first chief executive to visit this building.

On that occasion, he said "I hope you will impress upon the agents of the Internal Revenue Service how much we are dependent upon them, on their courtesy, on their efficiency, on their integrity, on their fairness."

In his memory, and with the resolve to fulfill his expectations, this plaque is respectfully dedicated.

Mortimer M. Caplin
May 1, 1964
