  • Provide opportunities for citizen input and make recommendations to the IRS and Treasury on customer-service issues.
  • Identify and prioritize taxpayer issues.
  • Report annually to Treasury, the IRS and the National Taxpayer Advocate.
  • Participate in meetings where taxpayers are invited to raise issues about their experiences with the IRS.
  • Refer taxpayers who contact the panels to the IRS offices best able to address their issues.

The deadline to apply is April 30, 2007. For further details, see:
