Ever want to tell the Internal Revenue Service how it could do its job better?

The agency has an opening for a Utahn on its Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP), which is a federal advisory committee that listens to taxpayers, identifies major taxpayer concerns, and makes recommendations for improving IRS services.

TAPs provide a forum for taxpayers to raise concerns about IRS service and offer suggestions for improvement.

"In trying to comply with an increasingly complex tax system, taxpayers may find they need different services than the IRS is currently providing," said Nina Olson, national taxpayer advocate. "The TAP is vital because it provides the IRS with the taxpayers' perspective as well as recommendations for improvement. This helps the IRS deliver the best possible service to assist taxpayers in meeting their tax obligations."

The application deadline is Friday. Applications are available at http://www.improveirs.org or call 888-912-1227.
