AGENCY:

Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Treasury.

ACTION:

Notice of proposed rulemaking.

SUMMARY:

Pursuant to the policies stated in Executive Orders 13777 and 13789 (the executive orders), the Treasury Department and the IRS conducted a review of existing regulations, with the goal of reducing regulatory burden for taxpayers by revoking or revising existing tax regulations that meet the criteria set forth in the executive orders. This notice of proposed rulemaking proposes to streamline IRS regulations by removing 298 regulations that are no longer necessary because they do not have any current or future applicability under the Internal Revenue Code (Code) and by amending 79 regulations to reflect the proposed removal of the 298 regulations. The proposed removal and amendment of these regulations may affect various categories of taxpayers.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On February 24, 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda (82 FR 12285). E.O. 13777 directed each agency to establish a Regulatory Reform Task Force. Each Regulatory Reform Task Force was directed to review existing regulations for regulations that: (i) Eliminate jobs, or inhibit job creation; (ii) are outdated, unnecessary, or ineffective; (iii) impose costs that exceed benefits; (iv) create a serious inconsistency or otherwise interfere with regulatory reform initiatives and policies; (v) are inconsistent with the requirements of the Information Quality Act (section 515 of the Treasury and General Government Appropriations Act of 2001) or OMB Information Quality Guidance issued pursuant to that provision; or (vi) derive from or implement Executive Orders or other Presidential directives that have been Start Printed Page 6807subsequently rescinded or substantially modified.

On April 21, 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13789, Presidential Executive Order on Identifying and Reducing Tax Regulatory Burdens (82 FR 19317). This executive order stated a policy that the “Federal tax system should be simple, fair, efficient, and pro-growth” and that “[t]he purposes of tax regulations should be to bring clarity to the already complex Internal Revenue Code . . . and to provide useful guidance to taxpayers.” E.O. 13789 also directs that immediate action be taken to “reduce the burden existing tax regulations impose on American taxpayers and thereby to provide tax relief and useful, simplified tax guidance.” To further this goal, the executive order directs the Secretary of the Treasury to review all significant tax regulations issued on or after January 1, 2016.

As required by E.O. 13789, on June 22, 2017, the Treasury Department issued an interim report (June report) identifying eight regulations to be revised or withdrawn. On October 2, 2017, the Treasury Department issued a second report (October report) recommending specific actions with respect to the regulations identified in the June report. In addition, in the October report the Treasury Department explained that “in furtherance of the policies stated in Executive Order 13789, Executive Order 13771, and Executive Order 13777, Treasury and the IRS have initiated a comprehensive review, coordinated by the Treasury Regulatory Reform Task Force, of all tax regulations, regardless of when they were issued. . . . This review will identify tax regulations that are unnecessary, create undue complexity, impose excessive burdens, or fail to provide clarity and useful guidance. . . .” In the October report, the Treasury Department noted that the IRS Office of Chief Counsel had already identified over 200 regulations for potential revocation. These regulations are in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) “but are, to varying degrees, unnecessary, duplicative, or obsolete, and force taxpayers to navigate unnecessarily complex or confusing rules.” The October report also stated that the Treasury Department and the IRS expected to begin the rulemaking process of revoking these regulations in the fourth quarter of 2017.

This notice of proposed rulemaking proposes to remove 298 regulations that have no current or future applicability and, therefore, no longer provide useful guidance. Removing these regulations from the CFR will streamline title 26, Federal Tax Regulations; reduce the volume of regulations taxpayers need to review; and increase clarity of the tax law. The removal of these regulations is unrelated to the substance of rules in the regulations, and no negative inference regarding the stated rules should be made. These regulations are proposed to be removed from the CFR solely because the regulations have no current or future applicability. Removal of these regulations is not intended to alter any non-regulatory guidance that cites to or relies upon these regulations.

This notice of proposed rulemaking also proposes to amend 79 regulations to remove cross-references to the 298 regulations described above. These amendments will further streamline title 26 of the CFR, reduce the volume of regulations taxpayers need to review, and increase clarity of the tax law.

Explanation of Provisions

The tax regulations proposed to be removed fall into one of three categories. The first category includes regulations interpreting provisions of the Code that have been repealed. All of these regulations apply to provisions of the Code that no longer appear in title 26 of the United States Code. The second category includes regulations interpreting Code provisions that, while not repealed, have been significantly revised, and the existing regulations do not account for these statutory changes. To fall in this category, these statutory changes must have rendered the entire regulation inapplicable. The third category includes regulations that, by the terms of the relevant Code provisions or the regulations themselves, are no longer applicable. This category would include, for example, expired temporary regulations; a Code provision that only applies to returns filed before January 1, 1996; or regulations providing for a transition rule that applies only to transactions entered into between January 1, 2000, and March 1, 2001. The specific regulations that fall within each of these three categories are detailed below.

The 79 tax regulations proposed to be amended are regulations that make reference to the 298 tax regulations proposed to be removed. Each amendment removes one or more references to a regulation that is proposed to be removed. For example, § 31.3121(b)(10)-1 is proposed to be amended to remove a reference to § 31.3121(b)(8)-2, which is proposed to be removed. The proposed amendments also include proposed amendments to remove references to regulations in the authority citation for part 602 of title 26 of the CFR, OMB Control Numbers Under the Paperwork Reduction Act, in cases where regulations are proposed to be removed from the CFR and, in the case of §§ 1.103-15AT and 1.103-18 because these regulations were previously removed from the CFR without corresponding amendment to Part 602.
