The Internal Revenue Service wants to know what you want to know.

The agency is asking members of the public to make recommendations for entries on its 2009-2010 guidance priority list.

Suggestions for the original list are due May 31.

The IRS will consider factors such as whether the recommended guidance resolves significant issues relevant to many taxpayers; whether the recommended guidance promotes sound tax administration; whether the recommended guidance can be drafted in a manner that will enable taxpayers to easily understand and apply the guidance; whether the IRS can administer the recommended guidance on a uniform basis; and whether the recommended guidance reduces controversy and lessens the burden on taxpayers or the IRS.

More information about submitting suggestions is available here.
