WASHINGTON— The Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC) held its annual public meeting today and released its annual report to Congress. The report features recommendations on a wide range of electronic tax administration issues.
“We appreciate the hard work these dedicated volunteers bring to electronic tax administration,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. “The members provide both practical and creative advice to the IRS as we study ways to improve our delivery of electronic services to taxpayers.”
ETAAC is an advisory committee to the entire IRS. ETAAC’s primary purpose is to provide an organized public forum of relevant electronic tax administration issues for Congress to discuss relevant electronic issues.
ETAAC members convey the public’s perception of professional standards and best practices for tax professionals and IRS activities; offer constructive observations regarding current or proposed IRS policies, programs, and procedures; and suggest improvements to electronic tax operations.
Based on its findings and discussions, ETAAC has made several recommendations on a broad range of issues and concerns including IRS funding, as well as accelerating a digital-first taxpayer service strategy to improve levels of service.
The Online Services Office within the IRS administers ETAAC. ETAAC draws its members from the electronic and digital community. The 2015 Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee Report is available on IRS.gov.
