Download as PDF 7114 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 28 / Friday, February 10, 2006 / Notices rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES1 safety goals. This notice requests comments on the extension of the phase-in reporting requirements of this FMVSS related to the implementation of advanced air bags. Phase 1 of the advanced air bag phase-in began September 1, 2003 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2005. Phase 2 of the advanced air bag phasein begins September 1, 2006 with 100 percent compliance by September 1, 2009. Description of the Need for the Information and Proposed Use of the Information: NHTSA needs this information to ensure that vehicle manufacturers are certifying their applicable vehicles as meeting the new advanced air bag requirements of FMVSS No. 208. NHTSA will use this information to determine whether a manufacturer has complied with the amended requirements during the phase-in period. Description of the Likely Respondents (Including Estimated Number and Proposed Frequency of Response to the Collection of Information): NHTSA estimates that 21 vehicle manufacturers will submit the required information. For each report, the manufacturer will provide, in addition to its identity, several numerical items of information. The information includes, but is not limited to, the following items: (a) Total number of vehicles manufactured for sale during the preceding production year, (b) Total number of vehicles manufactured during the production year that meet the regulatory requirements, and (c) Information identifying the vehicles (by make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN)) that have been certified as complying with the requirements. Estimate of the Total Annual Reporting and Record Keeping Burden Resulting from the Collection of Information: NHTSA estimates that it will annually take each of the 21 affected manufacturers an average of 61 hours to comply with these requirements. Using a cost estimate of $35 per hour, this results in a total annual cost of $44,835 (21 manufacturers × 61 hours per manufacturer × $35 per hour). Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c); delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.50. Issued on: February 6, 2006. Stephen R. Kratzke, Associate Administrator for Rulemaking. [FR Doc.

A primary IRS goal is to increase our activities with individuals and organizations that provide free pre-filing tax assistance to taxpayers. Providing taxpayers increased assistance before returns are filed promotes the elimination of errors. Reduction of errors will increase taxpayer satisfaction and increase IRS efficiency. As part of an effort to obtain maximum value from limited resources, IRS will use the information in the proposed system to improve management of free tax assistance programs providing volunteer services. Information about Volunteer Return Preparation Program sites will enable the IRS to strategically place individuals and organizations to provide the widest variety of skills that taxpayers may need in a particular location. The system will contain names, addresses, telephone numbers, e-mail addresses, qualifications, and levels of training of individual volunteers. Site reviews/evaluations, along with volunteer qualification and training, will be used to measure what makes a site successful. Records of guidance, assistance, and resources provided by IRS to individuals and organizations that volunteer their services to help taxpayers as a result of site reviews/ evaluations will also be maintained. The proposed system of records will enable IRS to improve volunteer service to taxpayers. The system will include records that are now covered by Treasury/IRS 10.007 SPEC Taxpayer Assistance Reporting System (STARS). Upon implementation of the new system, Treasury/IRS 10.007 will be deleted from IRS systems of records. The report of a new system of records, as required by 5 U.S.C. 552a(r) of the Privacy Act, has been submitted to the Committee on Government Reform of the House of Representatives, the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs of the Senate, and the Office of Management and Budget, pursuant to Appendix I to OMB Circular A–130, ‘‘Federal Agency Responsibilities for Maintaining Records About Individuals,’’ dated November 30, 2000. The proposed new system of records entitled Volunteer Records is published in its entirety below. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00114 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7115 Dated: February 3, 2006.
