SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Rule This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) part 73 by changing the using agency for R–4806W, R–4807A & B, and R–4809 currently shown as, ‘‘U.S. Air Force, Commander, Tactical Fighter Weapons Center, Nellis AFB, NV’’ to ‘‘USAF Warfare Center, Nellis AFB, NV’’. This is an administrative change and does not affect the boundaries, designated altitudes, or activities conducted within the restricted areas. Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary. The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an established body of technical regulations for which frequent and routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.

Under that section, the FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority as it amends restricted areas in Nevada. Environmental Review The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance with 311d., FAA Order 1050.1E, ‘‘Environmental Impacts: Policies and Procedures.’’ This airspace action is not expected to cause any potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental assessment.

ACTION: Final and removal of temporary regulations. SUMMARY: This document contains final regulations that provide rules relating to the disclosure and use of tax return information by tax return preparers. These regulations affect tax return preparers and provide updated guidance regarding the disclosure of a taxpayer’s social security number to a tax return preparer located outside of the United States. DATES: Effective Date: These regulations are effective on December 16, 2008. Applicability Date: See § 301.7216– 3(d), which states that the regulations apply to disclosures or uses of tax return information occurring on or after January 1, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Molly K. Donnelly, (202) 622–4940 (not a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background This document amends 26 CFR part 301. On December 8, 2005, the Treasury Department and the IRS published a notice of proposed rulemaking (REG– 137243–02) in the Federal Register (70 FR 72954) proposing amendments to the regulations under section 7216 (regarding the use or disclosure of tax PO 00000 Frm 00026 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 return information by income tax return preparers). On January 3, 2008, the Treasury Department and the IRS issued final regulations under section 7216 (TD 9375) applicable to disclosures or uses of tax return information occurring on or after January 1, 2009. Thus, TD 9375 replaced previously issued final regulations that remain applicable to disclosures or uses of tax return information occurring prior to January 1, 2009. TD 9375 included a revision of § 301.7216–3(b)(4) which, for disclosures and uses of tax return information occurring on or after January 1, 2009, provided that an income tax return preparer located in the United States may not disclose the taxpayer’s social security number (SSN) to a tax return preparer located outside of the United States even if the taxpayer consents to the disclosure. On July 1, 2008, a temporary regulation (TD 9409) was published in the Federal Register (73 FR 37804) that created a limited exception to the rule prohibiting the disclosure of a taxpayer’s SSN outside of the United States. This temporary regulation modified the rules under § 301.7216– 3(b)(4). A notice of proposed rulemaking (REG–121698–08) cross-referencing the temporary regulations was published in the Federal Register for the same day (73 FR 37910), requesting comments and setting a public hearing date. Summary of Comments and Explanation of Revisions The IRS and the Treasury Department requested written or electronic comments by September 30, 2008. Persons wishing to present oral comments at the public hearing scheduled for October 6, 2008, were to submit an outline of the topics to be discussed at the hearing by September 15, 2008, and written or electronic comments by September 30, 2008. No written or electronic comments or requests to speak at the hearing, together with the required outline of topics, were submitted, and the hearing was cancelled (73 FR 56534). The final regulations adopt the rules published in the proposed regulations without substantial change. The final regulations maintain the general rule in § 301.7216–3(b)(4) providing that an income tax return preparer located in the United States may not disclose the taxpayer’s SSN to a tax return preparer located outside of the United States even if the taxpayer consents to the disclosure. The final regulations create a limited exception to the general rule providing that a tax return preparer located within the United States, E:\FR\FM\16DER1.SGM 16DER1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Rule

    This action amends Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (14 CFR) 
part 73 by changing the using agency for R-4806W, R-4807A & B, and R-
4809 currently shown as, ``U.S. Air Force, Commander, Tactical Fighter 
Weapons Center, Nellis AFB, NV'' to ``USAF Warfare Center, Nellis AFB, 
NV''. This is an administrative change and does not affect the 
boundaries, designated altitudes, or activities conducted within the 
restricted areas. Therefore, notice and public procedures under 5 
U.S.C. 553(b) is unnecessary.
    The FAA has determined that this regulation only involves an 
established body of technical regulations for which frequent and 
routine amendments are necessary to keep them operationally current. 
Therefore, this regulation: (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory 
action'' under Executive Order 12866; (2) is not a ``significant rule'' 
under Department of Transportation (DOT) Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034; February 26, 1979); and (3) does not warrant 
preparation of a regulatory evaluation as the anticipated impact is so 
minimal. Since this is a routine matter that will only affect air 
traffic procedures and air navigation, it is certified that this rule, 
when promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a 
substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the 
Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    The FAA's authority to issue rules regarding aviation safety is 
found in

[[Page 76216]]

Title 49 of the United States Code. Subtitle I, Section 106 describes 
the authority of the FAA Administrator. Subtitle VII, Aviation 
Programs, describes in more detail the scope of the agency's authority.
    This rulemaking is promulgated under the authority described in 
Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart I, Section 40103. Under that section, the 
FAA is charged with prescribing regulations to assign the use of the 
airspace necessary to ensure the safety of aircraft and the efficient 
use of airspace. This regulation is within the scope of that authority 
as it amends restricted areas in Nevada.

Environmental Review

    The FAA has determined that this action qualifies for categorical 
exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act in accordance 
with 311d., FAA Order 1050.1E, ``Environmental Impacts: Policies and 
Procedures.'' This airspace action is not expected to cause any 
potentially significant environmental impacts, and no extraordinary 
circumstances exist that warrant preparation of an environmental 
assessment.
