WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is opening the nomination process for membership on the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC). The deadline for submitting applications is April 1.
ETAAC was established as required by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998. The purpose of the ETAAC is to provide continued input into the development and implementation of the agency’s strategy for electronic tax administration as well as to provide an organized public forum for the discussion of issues in electronic tax administration.
Nominations of qualified individuals may be made by letter and received from individuals or professional associations. A complete application package includes a nomination, ETAAC application, a short statement of interest and a resume. The application should describe and document the proposed member’s qualifications, past and current affiliations and/or dealings in electronic tax administration. A notice published in the Federal Register dated Feb. 14, 2013, contains more details about the ETAAC and the application process.
Members are approved by Treasury to serve three-year terms, beginning in the fall of 2013. Members must pass an IRS tax compliance check and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background investigation and may not be federally registered lobbyists.
