The Internal Revenue Service is accepting nominations for the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC).

The ETAAC was established by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998. It serves as an organized public forum for the discussion of issues and the development of recommendations for improved electronic tax filing and administration.

Nominations of qualified individuals may be made by letter, from individuals or professional associations. A complete application package includes the nomination, ETAAC application, a short statement of interest and a résumé.

The deadline for submitting applications is May 24.

Available online at www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f13768.pdf, applications should describe and document the proposed member’s qualifications, past and current affiliations and/or dealings in electronic tax administration.

Additional information and details about the ETAAC and the application process can be found at www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2012-04-04/html/2012-8004.htm.

ETACC members are approved by the Treasury Secretary to serve three-year terms, beginning in the fall. Members must pass an IRS tax compliance check and FBI background check. Members may not be federally registered lobbyists.
