IRS Seeks Applications for Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee

The IRS is requesting nominations for membership to the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee (IRPAC), a federal advisory panel that advises the IRS on various tax administration issues.

The 2014 IRPAC committee will consist of twenty-one volunteers. Members are appointed to three-year terms by the IRS Commissioner, but terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the panel changes each year. Nominations are currently being accepted for up to eight appointments to terms that will begin in January 2014.
 
The deadline for submitting applications is May 31, 2013.
 
IRPAC members are drawn from diverse backgrounds. Members represent the taxpaying public, tax professional community, small and large businesses, colleges and universities, state tax administrations, banks, insurance companies, foreign financial institutions, and the software and payroll industries.
 
Anyone interested in becoming a member of IRPAC may self-nominate or be nominated by a professional organization. All nominees must complete an application.
 
More information is available on IRS.gov at http://www.irs.gov/Tax-Professionals. Questions about the nomination process may be sent to publicliaison@irs.gov.
