AUGUSTA -- The Internal Revenue Service is seeking applications for vacancies on the Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities (ACT). The committee provides a venue for public input into critical tax administration areas.
Vacancies exist in the following customer segments:
- Employee Plans - two vacancies
- Exempt Organizations - two vacancies
- Tax Exempt Bonds - one vacancy
- Indian Tribal Governments - one vacancy
- Federal, State and Local Governments - two vacancies.
The ACT is an organized public forum for the IRS and representatives who deal with employee plans, exempt organizations, tax-exempt bonds, and federal, state, local and Indian tribal governments. The ACT allows the IRS to receive regular input on administrative policy and procedures of the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division.
Members are appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury and serve two-year terms, beginning in June 2008. Applications can be made by letter or by completing an application form, available on the IRS Web site. In either case, applications should reflect the proposed member's qualifications. A notice published in the Federal Register, dated Oct. 31, 2007, contains more details about the ACT and the application process.
Applications will be accepted through Nov. 30, 2007 and should be sent to Steven Pyrek, TE/GE Communications and Liaison Director, Internal Revenue Service, 1111 Constitution Ave., NW - SE:T:CL Penn Bldg., Washington, DC 20224, or by fax to 202-283-9966 (not a toll-free number).
