The Internal Revenue Service is accepting applications for new members of the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council, which provides a forum for IRS officials to discuss key areas of tax administration with a broad range of tax and other relevant professionals.

IRSAC has about 20 open seats for three-year terms starting in January 2011. IRSAC can have up to 35 members and submits a report to the IRS commissioner annually at a public meeting in the fall.

Applications will be accepted from May 3 to June 18, 2010.

Nominations of qualified individuals may come from individuals or organizations. IRSAC membership is balanced to represent tax professionals, including tax attorneys, CPAs, enrolled agents, enrolled actuaries and appraisers, as well as members of the business community.

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, as well as dealings with the particular tax segment or segments of the community that the applicant wishes to represent on the council.
