Title: Application of Separate Limitations to Dividends From Noncontrolled Section 902 Corporations.
OMB Number: 1545-2014.
Form Number: TD 9260.
Abstract: The AJCA amended the foreign tax credit treatment of dividends from noncontrolled section 902 corporations effective for post-2002 tax years, and the GOZA permitted taxpayers to elect to defer the effective date of these amendments until post-2004 tax years. These regulations require a taxpayer making the GOZA election to file a statement to such effect with its next tax return, and they require certain shareholders wishing to make tax elections on behalf of their controlled foreign corporations or noncontrolled section 902 corporations to execute a joint consent (that is retained by one shareholder) and attach a statement to their tax returns. The respondents are primarily domestic corporations owning stock in foreign corporations.
Current Actions: There is no change in the paperwork burden previously approved by OMB. This form is being submitted for renewal purposes only.
Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Individuals and Households, Businesses and other for-profit organizations.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 50.
Estimated Time Per Respondent: 30 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 25.
The following paragraph applies to all of the collections of information covered by this notice:
An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid OMB control number. Books or records relating to a collection of information must be retained as long as their contents may become material in the administration of any internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and tax return information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103.
Request For Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.Start Signature
