Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee (IRPAC) Open Season
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is requesting nominations for membership in the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee (IRPAC) for a three-year term beginning in January 2014.
IRPAC advises the IRS on information reporting and administration issues of mutual concern to the private sector and the federal government. The committee works with the IRS Commissioner and other IRS leadership to provide recommendations on a wide range of information reporting administration issues. Membership is balanced to include representation from industries including insurance, banking, the tax professional community, small and large businesses, state tax administrations, software, foreign financial institutions and the payroll industry. Federally-registered lobbyists cannot be members of the IRPAC.
IRPAC members meet in Washington, DC, approximately five times a year for two-day sessions. Members are not paid for their services. However, travel expenses for working sessions, public meetings and orientation sessions, such as airfare, per diem, and transportation are reimbursed within prescribed federal travel limitations.
