Background

On May 13, 1993, the IRS published a notice of proposed rulemaking (EE-79-89) in the Federal Register (58 FR 28374) that proposed amendments to the Employment Tax Regulations under sections 6011, 6157, and 6302 of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) of 1986. These proposed regulations stated the time and manner of making payments of the railroad unemployment repayment tax (sections 3321-3322 of the Code). Section 3321(c) of the Code provides for the termination of the tax when certain loans to the railroad unemployment fund are repaid. Because this repayment occurred on June 29, 1993, the railroad unemployment repayment tax provisions are no longer operative. Thus, no railroad unemployment repayment taxes are payable with respect to rail wages paid after July 1, 1993. See Announcement 93-128 Start Printed Page 67803(1993-30 I.R.B. 88). Therefore, proposed regulations §§ 31.6011(a)-3A, 31.6157-1 and 31.6302(c)-2A are hereby withdrawn.
