Title: Contributions of Motor Vehicles, Boats, and Airplanes.

OMB Number: 1545-1959.

Form Number: 1098-C.

Abstract: Section 884 of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub. L. 108-357) added new paragraph 12 to section 170(f) for contributions of used motor vehicles, boats, and airplanes. Section 170(f)(12) requires that a donee organization provide an acknowledgement to the donor of this type of property and is required to file the same information to the Internal Revenue Service. 1098-C may be used as the acknowledgement and it, or an acceptable substitute, must be filed with the IRS.

Current Actions: The department has added a box, 2a, to form 1098-C for collection of Odometer mileage data. In addition, the Department estimates an increase of responses based on its most recent data on Form 1098-C filings, from 5,000 to 151,000. The addition of box 2a and the estimated increase in the number of responses will increase the estimated annual burden hours from 1,500 to 46,810. There is an increase in the paperwork burden previously approved by OMB.

Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection.

Affected Public: Individuals and Households, Businesses and other for-profit organizations.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 151,000.

Estimated Time per Respondent: 18 minutes.

Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 46,810.

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.
