The Internal Revenue Service is requesting membership nominations for the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee, a body that provides recommendations to IRS leaders on information reporting and administration issues.

The committee, which presents a report to the commissioner of the IRS each year at a public meeting, includes representatives from the public, the tax professional community, small and large businesses, colleges and universities, state tax administrations and the payroll community.

Established in 1991, IRPAC is comprised of up to 23 members who are appointed to three-year terms by the commissioner. Each year, roughly one-third of the membership terms expire. Nominations are currently being accepted for up to seven appointments that begin in January 2006.

Interested parties may nominate themselves and one other qualified person for membership. Nominees must complete an application and federal tax background check waiver form. In addition, FBI and -- if applicable -- practitioner background checks are required.

The deadline for submitting applications is June 30, 2005. Application packages are available on the Tax Professional's Page on the IRS Web site, at www.irs.gov/taxpros/index.html. Questions about the nomination process can be sent to *public_liaison@irs.gov.

Nominations should be sent by mail to National Public Liaison, CL:NPL:SRM, Room 7566 IR, 1111 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, D.C. 20224, Attn: IRPAC Nominations, or faxed to Caryl Grant at (202) 622-8345.
