The Internal Revenue Service recommended, and the Department of the Treasury has approved, the selection of 24 new members to serve on the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel for 2021.
The new TAP members will join returning members to round out the panel of 67 volunteers for 2021. The new members were selected from a pool of approximately 300 interested individuals who applied during an open recruitment period last spring and from alternate members who applied in prior years.
National Taxpayer Advocate Erin Collins recently shared her appreciation for all TAP volunteers: “I am grateful for these citizens volunteering their time and talent to the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel. I am very proud of the accomplishments of the TAP last year, and I look forward to the TAP bringing its valuable taxpayer perspective in recommending changes to tax administration to achieve the quality service that taxpayers expect and deserve.”
