The Internal Revenue Service is seeking applicants for membership on the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC). Applicants should be from large businesses who file annual corporation or partnership returns. The IRS defines large businesses as enterprises with assets greater than $10 million.
The 13-member ETAAC panel provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues in support of the overriding goal that paperless filing as the preferred and most convenient method of filing tax and information returns.
"ETAAC members convey the public's perception of IRS electronic tax administration activities, offer constructive observations on current or proposed policies and programs," said Bert DuMars, IRS Electronic Tax Administration director. "It is critically important that our ETAAC includes members with a strong background in corporate and partnership tax issues."
The ETAAC also provides an annual report to Congress on IRS's progress in meeting the Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 goals for electronic filing of tax returns. The ETAAC researches, analyzes and make recommendations on a wide range of electronic tax administration issues and provides input into the development of the strategic plan for Electronic Tax Administration.
