SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: Background and Explanation of Revisions This document contains final regulations amending the Income Tax Regulations (26 CFR part 1) under section 6411 relating to the computation and allowance of the tentative carryback adjustment. On August 24, 2007, temporary regulations (TD 9355), 2007–37 IRB 577 (72 FR 48933) and a notice of proposed rulemaking by cross-reference to temporary regulations (REG–118886– 06), 2007–37 IRB 591 (72 FR 48952) were published in the Federal Register. On October 4, 2007, corrections to the temporary regulations were published in the Federal Register (72 FR 56619). Only one set of written comments responding to the notice of proposed rulemaking was received, and the same commenter was the sole speaker at a public hearing on the notice of proposed rulemaking, which was held on February 5, 2008. After consideration of the comments, the temporary regulations are adopted without change by this Treasury decision. The comments are discussed in the preamble. Explanation of Provisions and Summary of Comments RIN 1545–BF65 VerDate Mar<15>2010 Final regulations and removal of temporary regulations. ACTION: Jkt 220001 In general, section 6411(a) provides that, in the case of certain loss or credit carrybacks, a taxpayer may file an application for a tentative carryback adjustment of the tax for a prior taxable PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 year. Under section 6411(b), any resulting decrease in tax attributable to the carryback must be credited against any tax or installment ‘‘then due’’ from the taxpayer, or refunded to the taxpayer. Existing regulations at section 1.6411–3(d)(1)(iii) further provide that the decrease in tax is first applied against any unpaid amount of tax that is ‘‘due and payable’’ on the date the decrease is allowed. These regulations amend existing regulations under section 6411 to clarify the computation and allowance of the tentative carryback adjustment. The tentative allowance is computed pursuant to § 1.6411–2 but applied pursuant to § 1.6411–3. The regulations provide that, for purposes of computing the tentative allowance under section 6411, the Commissioner will not consider amounts to which the taxpayer and the Commissioner are in disagreement. For purposes of applying the tentative allowance, however, the regulations provide that the Commissioner may credit or reduce the tentative adjustment by any assessed tax liabilities, unassessed liabilities determined in a statutory notice of deficiency, unassessed liabilities identified in a proof of claim filed in a bankruptcy proceeding, and other unassessed liabilities in rare and unusual circumstances. Regarding unassessed liabilities determined in a statutory notice of deficiency, see Rev. Rul. 2007–51. Regarding unassessed liabilities identified in a proof of claim filed in a bankruptcy proceeding, see Rev. Rul. 2007–52. See also § 601.601(d)(2). The sole commenter asserted that the IRS lacks the authority to credit a tax decrease due to a tentative carryback adjustment against a tax liability unless the liability has been assessed against the taxpayer. According to the commenter, an assessed liability is the only proper interpretation of the terms ‘‘due and payable’’ and ‘‘then due’’ for purposes of section 6411(b). The Treasury Department and the IRS disagree with this position. The general authority to apply credits is provided by section 6402, which permits the IRS to credit the amount of any overpayment, including interest, against any tax liability of the person who made the overpayment. Nothing in section 6402 or the applicable regulations specifies when a liability arises for purposes of crediting overpayments. The Treasury Department and IRS have determined that both assessed and certain unassessed liabilities are appropriately considered ‘‘then due’’ for purposes of section 6411. Accordingly, the E:\FR\FM\24AUR1.SGM 24AUR1
