SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The proposed system will allow the IRS to 
maintain records pertinent to determining claimants' eligibility for 
and amount of awards pursuant to 26 U.S.C. 7623. The Whistleblower 
Office was created by section 406 of the Tax Relief and Health Care Act 
of 2006. Prior to its amendment by Section 406, 26 U.S.C. 7623 
authorized the IRS to pay awards to claimants who provided information 
that led to the collection of taxes. The IRS maintained a decentralized 
procedure for processing requests for such awards. Section 406 amended 
26 U.S.C. 7623 to establish criteria for the payment of certain awards, 
and to provide a judicial remedy in the U.S. Tax Court for review of 
these award determinations. Section 406 of the Act amends section 7623 
of the Internal Revenue Code concerning the payment of awards to 
certain claimants denominated as ``whistleblowers.'' New section 
7623(b) provides an award floor based on information regarding tax law 
violations provided by these claimants. Claimants are eligible for 
section 7623(b) awards based on the amount collected as a result of any 
administrative or judicial actions resulting from the information 
provided.
    The Whistleblower Office has responsibility for the administration 
of a whistleblower program, and the Secretary is required to provide an 
annual report to Congress on the use of section 7623. Records 
pertaining to award applications filed prior to the creation of the 
Whistleblower Office, for which an award has not yet been determined, 
will also be maintained in this system of records. An exemption rule is 
being published separately under the rules section of the Federal 
Register.
    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
