SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Department is consolidating systems of records pertaining to the parking and carpool programs into one Treasury-wide system of records. Department of the Treasury system of records notices were last published in their entirety beginning at 63 FR 69716 on December 17, 1998. In the proposed notice each Treasury bureau is listed as a “System Location” and the official responsible for the program at each bureau is identified under “System Manager.”

In certain instances, employer-provided parking may constitute a taxable fringe benefit subject to 26 U.S.C. 132(f), and the system will contain information necessary to report the taxable income, withhold the necessary income and employment taxes, and report the amount on an employee's W-2 and Leave and Earnings Statement. In addition, the Department may collect medical information from a person seeking a handicapped parking permit and if needed, disclose the medical information to a physician for determining the individual's eligibility for a handicap permit.

The following system of records notices will be deleted on January 23, 2001:

Treasury/CS .172—Parking Permits File

Treasury/BEP .043—Parking Program Records
