The Internal Revenue Service has announced that it is accepting applications for the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC).
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.
IRSAC members are appointed to three-year terms by the IRS commissioner and submit a report to the commissioner annually at a public meeting. Applications are currently being accepted for terms that will begin in January 2022.
The IRS said that nominations of qualified individuals may come from individuals or organizations.
Furthermore, 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 and large multinational corporations,
tax-exempt and government entities, information reporting and taxpayer or consumer perspective.
Applications will be accepted through July 9, 2021.
