Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC)


Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC)

The ETAAC provides an organized public forum for discussion of electronic tax administration issues 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 convey the public’s perception of IRS electronic tax administration activities, offer constructive observations about current or proposed policies, programs, and procedures, and suggest improvements.

The ETAAC will also provide an annual report to Congress on IRS progress in meeting the Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 goals for electronic filing of tax returns.  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. 

Membership is balanced to include representatives from tax practitioners and preparers,  transmitters of electronic returns, tax software developers, large and small businesses, employers and payroll service providers, individual taxpayers, financial industry (payers, payment options and best practices), system integrators (technology providers), academic (marketing, sales or technical perspectives), trusts and estates, tax exempt organizations, and state and local governments.
