SUMMARY:

This document contains a correction to a notice of proposed rulemaking (REG-158747-06) that was published in the Federal Register on Friday, December 5, 2008 (73 FR 74082) relating to withholding under section 3402(t) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The proposed regulations reflect changes in the law made by the Tax Increase Prevention and Reconciliation Act of 2005 that require Federal, State, and local government entities to withhold income tax when making payments to persons providing property or services. These proposed regulations provide guidance to assist the government entities in complying with section 3402(t). The regulations also provide certain guidance to persons receiving payments for property or services from government entities.
