Taxpayer Advocacy Panel

IRS Seeks Volunteers for Taxpayer Advocacy Panel

Beginning March 9, 2015, the Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP) is inviting civic-minded individuals to apply to become members of a dynamic volunteer organization whose mission is to improve IRS services. TAP is a federal advisory committee that provides a forum for listening to taxpayers, identifying major taxpayer concerns, and making recommendations for improving IRS taxpayer service. TAP reports annually to the Secretary of the Treasury, the IRS Commissioner and the National Taxpayer Advocate.



TAP is a group of volunteers dedicated to helping the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) identify ways to improve customer service and satisfaction. TAP is a Federal Advisory committee established in 2002 under the authority of the U.S. Department of the Treasury.

The Taxpayer Advocacy Panel listens to taxpayers, identifies taxpayers' issues, and makes suggestions for improving IRS service and customer satisfaction.
