The Internal Revenue Service headquarters in Washington, D.C.

The IRS wants nominations for its Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee, a federal advisory group that provides recommendations to the service on tax administration issues.

Nominations are being accepted for up to seven appointments that begin in January. The deadline for applications is May 21.

The committee reports to the IRS commissioner at a public meeting each fall on recommendations to improve the information reporting program.

Members represent the taxpaying public, the tax pro community, business, higher education, state tax administrations, banks, insurance companies, foreign financial institutions and the software and payroll industries. Members are appointed to three-year terms that are staggered so that about a third of the membership changes each year.

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, including the application form, is on IRS.gov. Questions about the nomination process can be sent to publicliaison@irs.gov.
