Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Under 31 C.F.R. Part 10, the Director of Practice is required to act upon applications for enrollment to practice before the IRS and is authorized to grant enrollment to applicants who demonstrate special competence in tax matters by written examination administered by the IRS. The Committee renders valuable assistance to the Director of Practice by: identifying federal tax services demanded by taxpayers; identifying the knowledge that permits practitioners to provide those services; developing examination questions; compiling the questions into examinations; and recommending passing scores.
How is membership balanced?*The Committee represents a broad range of tax and accounting expertise and experience. Members have been selected from the IRS and from the public sector. The Committee is well balanced in terms of geographical representation.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Not Applicable.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*Historically, the Special Enrollment Examination was compiled by IRS task forces. However, in 1997, the Director of Practice determined that the examination could be made to better serve the taxpaying public by testing for competence in those federal tax services that taxpayers were actually demanding. Such improvements is especially approprite at a time when taxpayers and Congress are calling for the IRS to be more responsive to taxpayers' needs. Tax practitioners are in touch with taxpayer-clients on a daily basis and can provide invaluable insight into their needs.
Why close or partially close meetings?In order to prevent compromises of the examination process, it is necessary to close portions of meetings during which the Committee develops questions to be include on future examinations and during which the Committee reviews and evaluates previous examinations.
