TAP is a federal advisory committee that listens to taxpayers, identifies key issues, and makes recommendations for improving IRS service. Service is voluntary.

To be a member of the TAP you must be a U.S. citizen, current with your federal tax obligations, able to commit 300 to 500 hours during the year and able to pass an FBI criminal background check. New TAP members will serve a three-year term starting in December. If you’re chosen as an alternate member, you’ll be considered to fill any vacancies that open in your area during the next three years.
