Notice: Historical Content
This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current law, policies or procedures.

Note

The Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee ceased operating as a separate IRS advisory committee in 2018 and combined with the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC).

Background

The final conference report for the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1989 contained an administrative recommendation that the Internal Revenue Service establish a federal advisory committee to discuss improvement to the information reporting program (IRP).

Mission

The purpose of the IRPAC was to provide an organized public forum for discussion of relevant information reporting issues of mutual concern between Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) officials and representatives of the public. Advisory committee members provided constructive observations regarding current or proposed IRS policies, programs, and procedures, and proposed improvements to information reporting operations and the Information Reporting Program through a final report.
