The Taxes Administration Liaison Committee (TALC) was established in 1989 and is a liaison committee between the Revenue Commissioners, the Irish Tax Institute, the Consultative Committee of Accountancy Bodies of Ireland (CCABI) and the Law Society of Ireland. TALC is the main forum for making representations between Revenue and practitioners on the administration of tax in Ireland. It does not deal with the formation of legislation or policy. The function of the TALC is to review and make recommendations to achieve more effective and efficient administration of tax. The Institute is represented at the TALC committees by senior tax practitioners and executive Institute staff.
