The Taxpayer Advocacy Panel is soliciting public comments, ideas and suggestions on improving customer service at the Internal Revenue Service. Kiski Junction Railroad (Kiski), a noncarrier, has filed a verified notice of exemption under 49 CFR 1150.31 to acquire from Berkman Rail Services 5.2 miles of the Schenley Industrial Track as follows: (1) Line Code 2229, from milepost 30.0 at Railroad Station 59 + 24 in Aladdin, to milepost 28.91; and (2) Line Code 2242, from milepost 0.0 at the connection of Line Code 2229, to milepost 4.0 at Railroad Station 52 + 80, in Armstrong County, PA.

Kiski certifies that its projected revenues as a result of this transaction will not result in the creation of a Class II or Class I rail carrier. If the verified notice contains false or misleading information, the exemption is void ab initio. Petitions to revoke the exemption under 49 U.S.C. 10502(d) may be filed at any time. The filing of a petition to revoke will not automatically stay the transaction.
