rate paid on applicable overpayments or underpayments of customs duties 
must be in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code rate established 
under 26 U.S.C. 6621 and 6622. Section 6621 was amended (at paragraph 
(a)(1)(B) by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act

rates applicable to overpayments: one for corporations and one for non-

[[Page 18257]]

    The interest rates are based on the Federal short-term rate and 
determined by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of the 
Secretary of the Treasury on a quarterly basis. The rates effective for 
a quarter are determined during the first-month period of the previous 
quarter.
    In Revenue Ruling 2012-8, the IRS determined the rates of interest 
for the calendar quarter beginning April 1, 2012, and ending on June 
30, 2012. The interest rate paid to the Treasury for underpayments will 
be the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two percentage points (2%) for 
a total of three percent (3%) for both corporations and non-
corporations. For corporate overpayments, the rate is the Federal 
short-term rate (1%) plus one percentage point (1%) for a total of two 
percent (2%). For overpayments made by non-corporations, the rate is 
the Federal short-term rate (1%) plus two percentage points (2%) for a 
total of three percent (3%). These interest rates are subject to change 
for the calendar quarter beginning July 1, 2012, and ending September 
30, 2012.
