FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information, send an e-mail to Judith B. Herman at 202–418–0214. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control No.: 3060–0812. Title: Exemption from Payment of Regulatory Fees When Claiming NonProfit Status. Form No.: N/A. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions and business or other forprofit. Number of Respondents: 4,500 respondents; 4,950 responses. Estimated Time per Response: .50 hours. Frequency of Response: Annual, on occasion and one time reporting requirements and recordkeeping requirement. Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. Statutory authority for this information collection (IC) is contained in 47 U.S.C. 159. Total Annual Burden: 2,475 hours. Annual Cost Burden: N/A. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: N/A. Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Licensees or regulatees concerned about disclosure of sensitive information in any submissions to the Commission may request confidential treatment PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 pursuant to 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this information collection as an extension (no change in reporting and recordkeeping requirements) after this 60 day comment period in order to obtain the full three year clearance from the OMB. There is no change in the estimated burden hours. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in accordance with the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, is required to assess and collect regulatory fees from its licensees and regulatees in order to recover its costs incurred in conducting enforcement, policy and rulemaking, and international and user information services. The purposes for these requirements are to facilitate: (1) The statutory provisions that non-profit entities be exempt from payment of regulatory fees; and the FCC’s ability to audit regulatory fee payment compliance. In order to develop a Schedule of Regulatory Fees, the FCC must as accurately as possible, estimate the number of payment units and distribute the costs. These estimates must be adjusted to account for any licensees or regulatees that are exempt from payment of regulatory fees. The FCC, therefore, requires all licensees and regulatees that claim exemption as nonprofit entities to provide one-time only documentation sufficient to establish their non-profit status. Further, the FCC is requesting that it be similarly notified if for any reason that status changes. The documentation necessary to provide to the Commission will likely take the form of an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) ‘‘Determination Letter’’, a state charter indicating non-profit status, proof of church affiliation indicating tax exempt status, etc. The FCC is requiring licensees or regulatees to maintain and to make available, upon request, for inspection such records that they would normally keep in the course of doing business. These records are used to compute the amount of regulatory fee payment for period of two years from the time the fee payment was made. This will allow adequate time for the FCC to conduct any audits deemed appropriate to determine whether fee payments were made correctly. Federal Communications Commission. Marlene H. Dortch, Secretary. [FR Doc. E8–24192 Filed 10–9–08; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6712–01–P E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1
