Tax Section Volunteer Opportunities 

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. Visit our Community page for more information.

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