SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On May 19, 1999, the IRS published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking [REG-100905-97(64 FR 27221)] intending to eliminate the regulatory requirement that certain information be set forth on the face of a certificate representing a CDO or REMIC regular interest.

The public hearing scheduled for September 13, 1999, was canceled because no one requested to speak, and the only written comment received supports finalizing the regulations in the form proposed. This Treasury decision, therefore, adopts the proposed regulations with no change.

Special Analyses

It has been determined that this Treasury decision is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. It has also been determined that section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 5) does not apply to these regulations, and, because the regulations do not impose a collection of information on small entities, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) does not apply. Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, the notice of proposed rulemaking preceding these regulations was submitted to the Chief Counsel for Start Printed Page 37702Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on its impact on small business.

Drafting Information

The principal author of these regulations is Kenneth Christman, Office of Assistant Chief Counsel (Financial Institutions and Products). However, other personnel from the IRS and Treasury Department participated in their development.
