The Internal Revenue Service is looking to fill six vacancies on its Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee beginning in September.

The committee, a congressionally authorized member panel, provides a public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues in support of a major IRS goal -- the paperless filing of tax and information returns. Members are appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury and serve a three-year term.

Committee members research, analyze and make recommendations on a range of electronic tax administration issues and provide input into the development of the strategic plan for electronic tax administration. The committee submits an annual report each June to Congress on the progress of the IRS's electronic tax initiatives.

Applications can be made by letter or by completing an application form, available at A notice published in the Federal Register on March 14 contains additional details about ETAAC and the application process and is available online at
