IRS Consolidating Advisory Committees

advice womenThe Internal Revenue Service is combining three advisory committees. The agency said this week the Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council will be expanded to include areas now covered by the Information Reporting Program Advisory Committee and the Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities.

IRSAC will expand next year to provide what was described as a “more unified platform for representatives of the tax community and the IRS to discuss pressing issues in tax administration.” The Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee, the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel and the Art Advisory Panel are not affected by the reorganization.

Issues discussed by three groups often overlapped. The IRS worked with current and former leaders of the committees to define a structure, which will focus on four subcommittees tracking four IRS operations divisions: Wage and Investment, Small Business and Self Employed, Tax Exempt and Government Entities and Large Business and International. IRSAC will also look at areas beyond the divisions.

The three groups currently have about 50 members with a plan to have 36 in the combined group. During the committee’s first year incoming chairs of the three committees will be co-chairs with one chair to be named in 2020.
