The IRSAC Wants You!


The IRS is seeking nominations for the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC), which advises the IRS regarding tax administration policy, programs, and initiatives.     

The Council was established in 1953 as the Advisory Group to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue (CAG). CAG was renamed in 1998 to IRSAC to better reflect the agency-wide scope of its focus. The IRSAC’s primary purpose is to provide an organized public forum for discussion or relevant tax administration issues between IRS officials and representatives of the public.   

Nominations for Council membership will be accepted through June 12. Members serve a three-year term beginning in January 2021. According to the IRS, members come from a variety of backgrounds purposefully to represent a cross-section of the taxpaying public. You can view the bios of the current list of members HERE. Travel expenses within government guidelines will be reimbursed and members must pass an IRS tax compliance check and an FBI fingerprint check.
