Applicants sought for IRS electronic tax committee
The IRS is seeking nominees for its Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee.
The ETAAC provides a public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues, such as preventing ID theft and refund fraud. Members work with the Security Summit, a joint effort of the IRS, state tax administrators and the industry to fight electronic fraud.
The IRS is looking for three people to serve three-year terms beginning in September. Applicants should have experience in areas like cybersecurity and information security, tax software development, tax prep, payroll and tax financial product processing, systems management and improvement, implementation of customer service initiatives and public administration.
Applications will be accepted through April 24. Anyone wishing to nominate a qualified person may submit a letter, and self-nominations are also welcome.
Applicants should complete an application and include a short statement of interest and a resume, as well as describe and document their qualifications, past and current affiliations, and dealings with cybersecurity and electronic tax administration.
Applicants must also submit a tax check waiver and undergo an IRS practitioner background check and an FBI criminal background check.
