Taxpayer Advocacy Panel (TAP)

 About Us:


The Taxpayer Advocacy Panel, a Federal Advisory Committee to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), helps to identify tax issues of importance to taxpayers and to provide a taxpayer perspective to the IRS on key programs, products, and services. It also serves as a focus group that makes recommendations to the IRS and the National Taxpayer Advocate.


TAP is a group of 75 citizen volunteers who listen to taxpayers, identify taxpayers’ issues, and make suggestions for improving IRS service and customer satisfaction. The Panel is demographically and geographically diverse with taxpayers from all walks of life representing each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. In 2015, the TAP will also have at least one member living abroad to represent international taxpayers.


TAP members conduct outreach to solicit suggestions or ideas from citizens, and serve on project committees working with IRS program owners on topics important to taxpayers and the IRS. The members participate in meetings and focus groups and develop and submit recommendations to improve the IRS.
