Title: Announcement of Rules to be Included in Final Regulations under Section 897(d) and (e) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Notice Number: 2006-46.
OMB Number: 1545-2017.
Abstract: This notice announces that the IRS and Treasury Department will issue final regulations under section 897(d) and (e) of the Internal Revenue Code that will revise the rules under Temp. Treas. Reg. § 1.897-5T, Notice 89-85, and Temp. Treas. Reg. § 1.897-6T to take into account statutory mergers and consolidations under foreign or possessions law which may now qualify for nonrecognition treatment under section 368(a)(1)(A). The specific collections of information are contained in Temp. Treas. Reg. §§ 1.897-5T(c)(4)(ii)(C) and 1.897-6T(b)(1). These reporting requirements notify the IRS of the transfer and enable it to verify that the transferor qualifies for nonrecognition and that the transferee will be subject to U.S. tax on a subsequent disposition of the U.S. real property interest.

Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection.
Affected Public: Business or other-for-profit organizations.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 500.

The following paragraph applies to all of the collections of information covered by this notice:

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.
