Szen was the Yankees' media relations director in 1982, later worked for the Seattle Mariners and returned to the Yankees in the 1990s as traveling secretary.
``We understand that the government is investigating personal tax issues regarding David Szen,'' Yankees spokesman Howard Rubenstein said Wednesday. ``The Yankees have cooperated with that inquiry. David Szen has requested and has been granted administrative leave.''
Ben Tuliebitz, the Yankees' assistant media relations director, is taking over Szen's duties.
