IRS requests IRSAC nominations

The IRS requests applications of individuals to be considered for selection as members of the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC). Nominations should describe and document the proposed member’s qualification for IRSAC membership, including the applicant’s knowledge of Circular 230 regulations and the applicant’s past or current affiliations and dealings with the particular tax segment or segments of the community that the applicant wishes to represent on the council. Applications will be accepted for current vacancies from qualified individuals and from professional and public interest groups that wish to have representatives on the IRSAC. The IRSAC is comprised of no more than thirty-five (35) appointed members; approximately four of these appointments will expire in December 2019. It is important that the IRSAC continue to represent a diverse taxpayer and stakeholder base. Accordingly, to maintain membership diversity, selection is based on the applicant’s qualifications as well as areas of expertise, geographic diversity, major stakeholder representation and customer segments.

Written applications will be accepted from May 2, 2016 through June 24, 2016. Applications should be sent to National Public Liaison, CL:NPL:P, Room 7559 IR, 1111 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, D.C. 20224, Attn: Ms. Anna Millikan; or by e-mail: *public_liaison@irs.gov. Applications may be submitted by mail to the address above or faxed to 855-811-8021. Application packages are available on the Tax Professional’s Page, which is located at http://www.irs.gov/for-tax-pros. (IRS Request for Applications, Federal Register, April 13, 2016.)
