21-Year-Old on IRS Advisory Council!
The Internal Revenue Service Advisory Council (IRSAC), in its mission to embody a "cross-section of the taxpaying public" (1), has been lacking representation from Gen Z, despite accounting for nearly 20% of the population. This gap in diversity has been a concern, but with the appointment of Aidan Hunt, who was still a college student at the time of his appointment, a fresh perspective may bring on important change to the council. Though he is young, only 21 years old, Hunt possesses impressive tax skills, having volunteered for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance program long before his time on IRSAC. His focus lies in assisting taxpayers to maximize their benefits and navigate their tax obligations more effectively, and he supports the modern digitization of the IRS.
