An Iowa tax consultant and entrepreneurship instructor has been named by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as one of eight new members of the Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee. Robert Gettemy of Marion, who will serve a three-year term beginning this month, is a full-time instructor at the University of Iowa, where he teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in entrepreneurship. In addition, he consults in the tax software industry. Established by statute in 1998, the ETAAC is a public forum for the discussion of issues in electronic tax administration. The committee's primary goal is to promote paperless filing of tax and information returns. “These eight new members bring diverse and important perspectives to a committee focused on the electronic side of tax administration,” IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig said in a release. “Their recommendations will inform IRS decision makers as they address critical issues like identity theft and refund fraud and further map out our digital strategy.”
