Download as PDF erowe on DSKG8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES 47648 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 151 / Friday, August 5, 2011 / Notices OMB Number: 1545–1662. Form Number: REG–121063–97; TD 8972 (Final). Abstract: Section 1301 of the Internal Revenue Code allows an individual engaged in a farming business to elect to reduce his or her regular tax liability by treating all or a portion of the current year’s farming income as if it had been earned in equal proportions over the prior three years. To take advantage of income averaging, § 1301 requires that the taxpayer calculate the § 1 tax using the three prior year’s tax tables and, if applicable, Schedule D, Capital Gains and Losses, (to apply the maximum capital gains tax rates), as well as the current year’s tax tables or tax rate schedules. The regulation requires the taxpayer to use Schedule J of Form 1040 to record and total the amount of tax for each year of the four year calculation. Current Actions: There are no changes to this existing regulation. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. The burden for this requirement is reflected in the burden estimate for Schedule J of Form 1040. The following paragraph applies to all of the collections of information covered by this notice: An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid OMB control number. Books or records relating to a collection of information must be retained as long as their contents may become material in the administration of any internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and tax return information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103. Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
