IR-2017-24, Feb. 7, 2017
WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced the selection of two new members for the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC).
Established in 1998, ETAAC provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues, including the prevention of identity theft and refund fraud, in support of the overriding goal that paperless filing should be the preferred and most convenient method of filing tax and information returns. ETAAC members work closely with the Security Summit, a joint effort of the IRS, state tax administrators and tax software providers to fight electronic fraud.
Committee members represent industries including cybersecurity and information security, tax software development, tax preparation, payroll and tax financial product processing, systems management and improvement as well as work on customer service initiatives, consumer advocacy and public administration.
The following people have been appointed to serve on the committee beginning in 2017:
John Breyault, National Consumers League
John Breyault has been with the National Consumers League (NCL) since September 2008. He advocates before Congress and federal agencies for stronger consumer protections on issues related to telecommunications, fraud and technology. In addition, Breyault manages NCL’s Fraud Center and coordinates the Alliance Against Fraud coalition. He is also Research Director for the Telecommunications Research and Action Center (TRAC), a project of NCL. In his role with TRAC, Breyault advocates on behalf of residential consumers of wireline, wireless, VoIP, and other IP-enabled communications services. Previously, he was a member of the Federal Communications Commission’s Consumer Advisory Committee.
Angela Camp, Intuit
Angela Camp has 20 years of experience in the tax industry. For the past five years Camp has been with Intuit, where her focus is on tax administration and policy from the point of view of a software provider.
