    We have approximately 280 volunteers serving across 15 volunteer groups, including committees, tax technical resource panels, task forces, and other working groups. Our volunteers are divided into three categories: advocacy, member service, and ethics.

    These groups are an invaluable resource to the Institute as they provide guidance on complex and sometimes high-profile tax issues and serve as the subject matter experts behind the guidance and resources developed as a benefit of Tax Section membership.

    You must be a Tax Section member to apply for to be a volunteer in the Tax Division.
