IRS seeks volunteeers for panel (3/29)

March 29, 2009

BALTIMORE - The Internal Revenue Service is seeking volunteers to serve on the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel, which listens to taxpayers, identifies key issues and makes recommendations for improving IRS service.

The panel provides a forum for taxpayers from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. It is a federal advisory committee that reports annually to the Treasury Department, the IRS and the National Taxpayer Advocate, an independent organization within the IRS that provides oversight and funding of the panel.

Members of the panel must be a U.S. citizen, be current with their tax obligations, be able to commit 300 to 500 hours during the year and pass an FBI criminal background check. New members will serve a three-year term beginning in December 2009. Alternates will be considered to fill vacancies that open in the next two years.

Members are being sought in 19 states, including Maryland and Pennsylvania. Alternates are being sought in 18 states, including West Virginia.
