SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On December 27, 1993, the IRS issued proposed regulations (REG-209640-93) in the Federal Register (58 FR 68335) under sections 6012, 6061, and 6065 relating to the TeleFile Voice Signature test. The notice of proposed rulemaking cross-referenced temporary regulations published in the Federal Register for the same day (58 FR 68295). Although written comments and requests for a public hearing were solicited, no written or oral comments were received and no public hearing was requested or held. Because the applicable temporary regulations apply only to 1992 and 1993 calendar year returns, the IRS has decided not to finalize those regulations and, thus, is withdrawing the proposed regulations.
