Membership is balanced to include representation from the taxpaying public, the tax professional community, small and large businesses, state tax administration, and the payroll community. IRSAC members are appointed by the Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service and serve a term of three years. There are four subcommittees of IRSAC, the Small Business/Self Employed (SB/SE); Large Mid-Size Business (LMSB); Wage & Investment (W&I); and the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) subcommittee. Members are not paid for their services. However, travel expenses for working sessions, public meetings and orientation sessions, such as airfare, per diem, and transportation to and from airports, train stations, etc., are reimbursed within prescribed federal travel limitations.
