Title: U.S. Return of Income for Electing Large Partnerships (Form 1065-B), and Schedules.

OMB Number: 1545-1626.

Form Number: Form 1065-B and Schedules.

Abstract: Form 1065-B is an information return used to report the income, gains, losses, deductions, etc., from the operation of an electing large partnership (as defined in section 775). An electing large partnership (ELP) may be required to pay certain taxes, such as recapture of the investment credit under section 50, but generally it “passes through” any profits or losses to its partners. Partners must include these ELP items on their income tax returns.

Current Actions: Schedule K and M-3 have been added to this collection which has resulted in an increase to the overall burden of form 1605-B.

Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.

Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations and farms.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 100.

Estimated Time Per Respondent: 324 hrs. 19 min.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 728,996.

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.
