The IRS’s Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and Government Entities (ACT) will submit its latest round of recommendations to the agency’s leadership during a public meeting on June 15, the IRS announced Thursday.

The ACT provides an organized public forum for the Internal Revenue Service to receive regular input onoperational policies and procedures regarding employee retirement plans, tax-exempt organizations, tax-exempt bonds and federal, state, local and Indian tribal governments.

The advisory committee comprises external stakeholders who are appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury and generally serve two-year terms.

Committee reports from five ACT subgroups cover the following topics:

  • Employee Plans: Recommendations regarding pension outreach to the small business community.

The ACT public meeting will take place on June 15, beginning at 9.30 a.m., at the IRS headquarters at 1111 Constitution Ave., NW in Washington, D.C.
