I. Abstract

The respondents will be commercial fishing industry individuals, partnerships, and corporations which are applying for or have entered into Capital Construction Fund Agreements with the Secretary of Commerce allowing deferral of Federal taxation on fishing vessel income deposited into the fund for use in the acquisition, construction, or reconstruction of fishing vessels. Deferred taxes are recaptured by reducing an agreement vessel's basis for depreciation by the amount withdrawn from the fund for its acquisition, construction, or reconstruction. The information collected from agreement holders is used to determine their eligibility to participate in the Capital Construction Fund Program pursuant to 50 CFR part 259.

At the completion of construction/reconstruction, a certificate to that effect must be submitted.
