IRS seeks membership nominations for the 2024 Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council


IR-2023-91, April 24, 2023

WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is accepting applications for the 2024 Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC). Applications are accepted through May 31, 2023.

The IRSAC serves as an advisory body to the IRS commissioner and provides an organized public forum for discussion of relevant tax administration issues between IRS officials and representatives of the public.

The advisory council:

  • proposes enhancements to IRS operations.
  • recommends administrative and policy changes to improve taxpayer service, compliance and tax administration.
  • discusses relevant information reporting issues.
  • addresses matters concerning tax exempt and government entities.
  • conveys the public's perception of professional standards and best practices for tax professionals.

IRSAC members are appointed to three-year terms by the IRS commissioner and submit a report to the commissioner annually at a public meeting. The IRS is accepting applications for terms that begin in January 2024.

Nominations of qualified individuals may come from individuals or organizations. IRSAC members are drawn from diverse backgrounds representing a cross-section of the taxpaying public with experience in:

  • tax preparation for individuals, small businesses and large multi-national corporations.
  • tax exempt and government entities.
  • information reporting.
  • taxpayer or consumer advocacy.

Applications should document the proposed member's qualifications. Applicants must be in good standing with their own tax obligations and demonstrate high professional and ethical standards. All applicants must apply and pass a tax compliance and practitioner check. For those applicants deemed "best qualified," FBI fingerprint checks are required.

More information, including the application form, is available on the IRSAC webpage. Questions about the application process can be emailed to
