SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

Nominations should describe and
document the proposed member’s
qualifications for ETAAC membership,
including the applicant’s knowledge of
regulations and the applicant’s past or
current affiliations and involvement
with the particular tax segment or
segments of the community that the
applicant wishes to represent on the
committee. Applications will be

qualified individuals and from
professional and public interest groups
that wish to have representation on
ETAAC. Submissions must include an
application and resume.
ETAAC provides continuing input
into the development and
implementation of the IRS
organizational strategy for electronic tax
administration. The ETAAC provides an
organized public forum for discussion of
electronic tax administration issues—
such as prevention of identity theft-
related refund fraud—in support of the
overriding goal that paperless filing
should be the preferred and most
convenient method of filing tax and
information returns. ETAAC members
work closely with the Security Summit,
a joint effort of the IRS, state tax
administrators and the nation’s tax
industry, to fight identity theft and
refund fraud. ETAAC members convey
the public’s perceptions of IRS
electronic tax administration activities,
offer constructive observations about
current or proposed policies, programs
and procedures, and suggest
improvements.
This is a volunteer position. Members
will serve three-year terms on the
ETAAC to allow for a rotation in
membership and ensure different
perspectives are represented. Travel
expenses within government guidelines
will be reimbursed. In accordance with
Department of Treasury Directive 21–03,
a clearance process including
fingerprints, annual tax checks, a
Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal
check and a practitioner check with the
Office of Professional Responsibility
will be conducted.
The establishment and operation of
the Electronic Tax Administration
Advisory Committee (ETAAC) is
required by the Internal Revenue
Service (IRS) Restructuring and Reform
Act of 1998 (RRA 98), Title II, Section
2001(b)(2). ETAAC follows a charter in
accordance with the provisions of the
Federal Advisory Committee Act
(FACA), 5 U.S.C., app. 2. The ETAAC
provides continued input into the
development and implementation of the
IRS’s strategy for electronic tax
administration. The ETAAC will
research, analyze, consider, and make
recommendations on a wide range of
electronic tax administration issues and
will provide input into the development
of the strategic plan for electronic tax
administration. Members will provide
an annual report to Congress by June 30.
Applicants must complete the
application form, which includes
describing and documenting the
applicant’s qualifications for ETAAC
membership. Applicants must submit a
short one or two-page statement
including recent examples of specific
skills and qualifications as they relate
to: cybersecurity and information
security, tax software development, tax
preparation, payroll and tax financial
product processing, systems
management and improvement,
implementation of customer service
initiatives, consumer advocacy and
public administration. Examples of
critical thinking, strategic planning and
oral and written communication are
desirable.
An acknowledgement of receipt will
be sent to all applicants.
Equal opportunity practices will be
followed in all appointments to the
ETAAC in accordance with Department
of Treasury and IRS policies. The IRS
has a special interest in assuring that
women and men, members of all races
and national origins, and individuals
with disabilities have an opportunity to
serve on advisory committees.
Therefore, IRS extends particular
encouragement to nominations from
such appropriately qualified
individuals.
