SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Explanation of Provisions

This document contains final regulations that amend 26 CFR parts 1, 20, 25, 31, 40, 41, 44, 53, 55, 156, and 301 with respect to the place for filing returns and other documents under section 6091 of the Code. These final regulations reflect the changes in the IRS organizational structure following the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (112 Stat. 685). These final regulations specify where the IRS now accepts hand-carried returns in a manner consistent with the instructions in Notice 2003-19 (2003-1 C.B. 703) and do not make any substantive changes to a taxpayer's ability to hand carry returns to a local IRS office.

These final regulations remove the examples under § 1.6091-4(a)(4), which are obsolete due to various amendments to the Code, and add an example in their place that illustrates the application of the rules in § 1.6091-4(a)(2) and (3) to a current provision of the Code. These final regulations also include one citation correction in sect; 1.6091-1(b). In certain cases, these final regulations cross reference regulations that contain references to obsolete IRS offices or titles. Taxpayers in those cases should continue to follow any updated instructions in other published guidance. See, e.g., Notice 2003-19.

Special Analyses

It has been determined that these final regulations are not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. It has been determined that section 553(b) of the administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 5) does not apply to these final regulations for two reasons. First, these final regulations reflect changes in the organizational structure of the IRS and are rules concerning agency organization, procedure, or practice that are exempted from the notice and comment requirement of 5 U.S.C. 553. Second, for good cause, Treasury and the IRS have determined that notice and public procedure are impracticable, unnecessary, and contrary to the public interest because these final regulations do not make substantive changes to taxpayers' current ability to hand carry returns to a local IRS office. Instead, these final regulations replace obsolete references to IRS organizations and titles with updated references that are sufficiently flexible to take into account future changes to IRS structure or operations. In addition, these final regulations reflect existing instructions given to taxpayers with respect to the hand-carrying of returns. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required, the provisions of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) do not apply. Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Code, these final regulations were submitted four weeks prior to filing with the Office of the Federal Register to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on their impact on small business.

Drafting Information

The principal authors of these final regulations are Ann M. Kramer and Emly B. Berndt of the Office of the Associate Chief Counsel (Procedure and Administration), Administrative Provisions and Judicial Practice Division.

(4) The application of paragraphs (a)(2) and (3) of this section may be illustrated by the following example:

Example.

The Commissioner has authorized the Internal Revenue Service Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (for all purposes except venue), to receive Form 1120. Except for that authorization, A, a corporation with its principal place of business in Greensboro, North Carolina, is required to file its Form 1120 for Year X with the Internal Revenue Service Center, Atlanta, Georgia. In addition, A may file an election to defer development expenditures paid or incurred in Year X. Under § 1.616-2(e)(2) and applicable published guidance (in this case Notice 2003-19 (2003-1 C.B. 703)) that statement of election must be filed with the service center that serves A's principal place of business where A filed its income tax return. A may make that election on its income tax return or by filing it separately. Under paragraph (a)(2) of this section, A may send its Form 1120 to either the Internal Revenue Service Center, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, or to the Internal Revenue Service Center, Atlanta, Georgia. If A files its statement of election separately from its income tax return for Year X, then the statement of election is not a proper attachment to A's income tax return and A should send the statement of election to the Internal Revenue Service Center, Atlanta, Georgia (with which A must, without regard to paragraph (a)(2) of this section, file its income tax return), no later than the time prescribed for filing Form 1120 for Year X (including extensions).
