WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service invites applicants to fill six vacancies on the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC) beginning in September 2006.
ETAAC, a congressionally authorized member panel, provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues in support of a major IRS goal: paperless filing of tax and information returns. ETAAC members are appointed by the Secretary of Treasury and serve a three-year term.
ETAAC members research, analyze, and make recommendations on a wide range of electronic tax administration issues and provide input into the development of the strategic plan for electronic tax administration. The ETAAC submits an annual report each June to Congress reporting on the progress of the IRS’ electronic tax initiatives.
“By applying for membership in ETAAC, you could play an important role in developing and implementing IRS strategy related to electronic tax administration.” Said Bert DuMars, director, Electronic Tax Administration for the IRS.
Applications can be made by letter or by completing an application form, available on the IRS website. A notice published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2006, contains additional details about ETAAC and the application process. Interested applicants are invited to submit their application by using one of the following methods:
