The IRS wants nominations for its Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee, a federal advisory panel that advises the IRS on tax administration issues, and that presents an annual report to the IRS commissioner in the fall.

The 2014 IRPAC committee will comprise 21 volunteers appointed to three-year terms by the commissioner. Terms are staggered, however, so about a third of the panel changes each year.

Nominations are being accepted for up to eight appointments to terms that will begin in January of 2014. The deadline for applications is May 31.

IRPAC members are from diverse backgrounds, including the taxpaying public, the 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. More information is on the IRS Web site
