SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice is hereby given that the Department 
of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are inviting 
individuals to help improve the nation's tax agency by applying to be

    The IRS is seeking applicants who have an interest in good 
government, a personal commitment to volunteer approximately 200 to 300 
hours a year, and a desire to help improve IRS customer service. As a
