IRS Seeks Nominations For Advisory Council

by Mike Godfrey,, Washington

01 May 2007

The Internal Revenue Service has announced that it is requesting membership nominations for the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC).

Originally called the Commissioner’s Advisory Group (CAG) and renamed in 1998, IRSAC’s purpose is to provide an organized public forum for IRS officials and representatives of the public to discuss relevant tax administration issues. The committee presents a report to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue each year at a public meeting in the fall.

In order to effectively advise the Commissioner and IRS executives, members are drawn from substantially diverse backgrounds. Membership is balanced to include representation from the tax professional community, including, but not limited to, tax attorneys, certified public accountants, enrolled agents, enrolled actuaries and appraisers, as well as large and small business representatives and other tax practitioners.

IRSAC is comprised of up to 30 members, who are appointed for three-year terms by the Commissioner. Nominations are currently being accepted for five to seven appointments that will begin January 2008.

Interested parties may nominate themselves and/or one other qualified person for membership. Nominees should be in good standing regarding their own tax obligations, and should represent professional and ethical ideals. All nominees must complete an application and a tax check waiver form. In addition, FBI criminal and subversive checks using fingerprints and, if applicable, practitioner checks are required of all nominees.
