Please cite OMB Control No. 3090–0280, Tax Adjustment Clause 552.270–30, in all correspondence. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: [OMB Control No. 3090–0280] A. Purpose General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation; Submission for OMB Review; Tax Adjustment Clause 552.270–30 The General Services Administration (GSA) has various mission responsibilities related to the acquisition and provision supply, service, and leasehold acquisitions. These mission responsibilities generate requirements that are realized through the solicitation and award of various types of contracts. Individual solicitations and resulting contracts may impose unique information collection and reporting requirements on contractors, not required by regulation, but necessary to evaluate particular program accomplishments, measure success in meeting program objectives, or adjust acquisition requirements. Leasehold acquisitions provide for real estate tax adjustments due to changes in real estate taxes on land and buildings occupied by the Government. In a leasehold acquisition, the lessor shall provide the following information regarding real estate taxes: (1) Any notice which may affect the valuation of land and buildings covered by this lease for real estate tax purposes; (2) Any notice of a tax credit or tax refund related to land and buildings covered by this lease; and (3) Each tax bill related to land and building covered by this lease. The lessor is also required to provide the contracting officer a proper invoice including evidence of payment to receive the tax adjustment. Depending on the leasehold acquisition, the tax adjustment can result in either the lessor receiving a credit or the Government receiving a credit.
