The Internal Revenue Service has completed its 2021 open season for new members. The IRS will next accept nominations for IRSAC in spring 2022.

What is the IRSAC?

The IRSAC serves as an advisory body to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue and provides an organized public forum for discussion of relevant tax administration issues between IRS officials and representatives of the public. The IRSAC 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 and conveys the public's perception of professional standards and best practices for tax professionals. A reportPDF is presented to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue each year at a public meeting.

IRSAC holds approximately four, two-day working sessions and at least one public meeting per year. Members are not paid for their services; any travel expenses are reimbursed within federal government guidelines.

Who can apply?

IRSAC members are drawn from substantially diverse backgrounds representing a cross-section of the taxpaying public with substantial, disparate experience in: tax preparation for individuals; small businesses; large, multi-national corporations; tax-exempt and government entities; and information reporting. Nominations of qualified individuals may come from individuals or organizations.

How do I apply?
