IRS Invites Taxpayers to Apply for Panel Membership


The IRS yesterday invited taxpayers to apply for membership on the Taxpayer Advisory Panel:

The IRS invites civic-minded individuals to help improve the nation’s tax agency by applying to be members of the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel. The panel provides a forum for citizens from each state to make suggestions regarding IRS decision making.

Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP) members:

    • 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 28, 2006.  For a list of the current members, see here.  For further details, see:
