WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service today announced it seeks new members for the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC), which provides a forum for IRS officials to discuss key areas of tax administration with a broad range of tax and other relevant professionals.
IRSAC members submit a report to the IRS Commissioner annually at a public meeting in the fall.
“IRSAC members bring a wealth of experience to the table. Their valuable and timely input is particularly important to help tax administration during these challenging times,” said Doug Shulman, IRS Commissioner.
IRSAC has eight open seats for three-year terms starting in January 2010. Applications will be accepted from May 1 to June 16, 2009. IRSAC members are appointed by the Commissioner.
IRSAC members represent a cross section of the tax community. Members are balanced to include tax attorneys, certified public accountants, enrolled agents, appraisers, as well as small and large small business representatives, among others. IRSAC can have up to 35 members.
All applicants must complete an application and submit to a screening process.
More information and the application for IRSAC can be found on the Tax Professional’s Page of IRS.gov.
