WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is seeking candidates for membership on the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC). All applicants should submit a resume and complete an application form for the fall vacancies. In addition, the IRS will require a federal tax check waiver and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) check of the best qualified applicants. The deadline for submitting applications is Tuesday, April 1, 2008.
ETAAC provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues in support of the overriding goal that paperless filing should be the preferred and most convenient method of filing tax and information returns. ETAAC provides an annual report to Congress on IRS’s progress in increasing electronic transactions.
ETAAC researches, analyzes, considers and makes recommendations on a wide range of electronic tax administration issues. Membership on ETAAC requires expertise in electronic tax administration, a personal commitment of approximately 100 hours a year and a desire to help shape the electronic tax administration system.
For additional information, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ETAAC was created in 1998 by the IRS Electronic Tax Administration as required by the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA 98).
