The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) needs your help! The agency is seeking membership nominations for the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee (IRPAC), a federal advisory committee that advises the IRS on various tax administration issues.

The IRPAC presents a report to the IRS Commissioner at a public meeting each fall. Members are appointed to three-year terms, but terms are staggered so that approximately one-third of the committee membership changes each year.

Nominations are currently being accepted for up to six appointments that will begin in January 2016. The deadline for submitting IRPAC applications is May 29, 2015.

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.

The application form and further information regarding the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee is available at https://www.irs.gov/tax-professionals. Additional questions about the IRPAC nomination process may be sent to publicliaison@irs.gov.
