Exemption of Foreign Air Carriers From Excise Taxes; Discontinuance of Exemption; Republic of Bolivia, 34600 [E6-9335]

Download as PDF 34600 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 115 / Thursday, June 15, 2006 / Notices The current deadline for the final results of this review is July 3, 2006. Extension of Time Limit for Final Results of Review Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), requires the Department to issue (1) the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the month in which occurs the anniversary of the date of publication of an order or finding for which a review is requested, and (2) the final results within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within that time period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days and the final results to a maximum of 180 days (or 300 days if the Department does not extend the time limit for the preliminary results) from the date of the publication of the preliminary results. See 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). We determine that it is not practicable to complete the final results of this review within the extended time limits. Due to the complexity of issues present in this administrative review, such as BGH’s claim of a downward adjustment to normal value for home market commissions and the Department’s upward adjustment to BGH’s cost of manufacture, the Department needs additional time to address these items and evaluate the issues more thoroughly. Therefore, we are extending the deadline for the final results of this review by 14 days. Accordingly, the final results will be issued no later than July 17, 2006. This extension is in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2). Dated: June 9, 2006. Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration. [FR Doc.

Exemption of Foreign Air Carriers From Excise Taxes; 
Discontinuance of Exemption; Republic of Bolivia

AGENCY: International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of 
Commerce.

ACTION: Notification to the Secretary of Treasury by the Secretary of 
Commerce, or his designee, of the discontinuance of the existing 
exemption for aircraft registered in the Republic of Bolivia from 
certain internal revenue taxes on the purchase of supplies in the 
United States for such aircraft in connection with their international 
commercial operations.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that the Department of Commerce has 
determined that the Government of Bolivia has discontinued allowing 
substantially reciprocal tax exemptions to aircraft of U.S. registry in 
connection with international commercial operations similar to those 
exemptions currently granted to aircraft of Bolivian registry by the 
United States. The Department reached this determination after a review 
conducted pursuant to Section 4221 of the Internal Revenue Code, as 
amended (26 U.S.C. 4221).
    The above-cited statute provides exceptions for aircraft of foreign 
registry from payment of certain internal revenue taxes on the purchase 
of supplies in the United States for such aircraft in connection with 
their international commercial operations. These exemptions apply upon 
a finding by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, and 
communicated to the Department of the Treasury, that such country 
allows, or will allow, ``substantially reciprocal privileges'' to 
aircraft of U.S. registry with respect to purchases of such supplies in 
that country. If a foreign country discontinues the allowance of such 
substantially reciprocal exemption, the exemption allowed by the United 
States will not apply after the Secretary of the Treasury is notified 
by the Secretary of Commerce, or his designee, of the discontinuance.
    Interested parties were invited in a Federal Register Notice dated 
June 30, 2005, to submit their views, comments and supporting 
documentation in writing concerning this matter to the U.S. Department 
of Commerce. The Department then conducted its review. Those desiring 
additional information contact Mr. Eugene Alford, Office of Service 
Industries, Room 1104, U.S. Department of Commerce, Washington, DC 
20230, or telephone 202-482-5071.
