SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background and Explanation of Provisions

    Temporary regulations in the Rules and Regulations section of this 
issue of the Federal Register amend the Income Tax Regulations (26 CFR 
part 1) relating to section 171. The temporary regulations provide 
guidance on the tax treatment of a taxable debt instrument with a bond 
premium carryforward in the holder's final accrual period, including a 
Treasury bill acquired at a premium. In general, the temporary 
regulations provide that, upon the sale, retirement, or other 
disposition of a taxable bond, the holder treats the amount of any bond 
premium carryforward determined as of the end of the accrual period 
under Sec.  1.171-2(a)(4)(i)(B) as a bond premium deduction under 
section 171(a)(1) for the holder's taxable year in which the sale, 
retirement, or other disposition occurs. The text of the temporary 
regulations also serves as the text of these proposed regulations.

Special Analyses

    It has been determined that this notice of proposed rulemaking is 
not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 
12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, a 
regulatory assessment is not required. It also has been determined that 
section 553(b) of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 5) 
does not apply to these regulations, and because the regulations do not 
impose a collection of information on small entities, the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) does not apply. Pursuant to 
section 7805(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, this notice of proposed 
rulemaking has been submitted to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the 
Small Business Administration for comment on its impact on small 
businesses.

Comments

    Before these proposed regulations are adopted as final regulations, 
consideration will be given to any written (a signed original and eight 
(8) copies) or electronic comments that are submitted timely to the IRS 
as prescribed in the preamble under the ``Addresses'' heading. The 
Treasury Department and the IRS welcome comments on the clarity of the 
proposed rules and how they can be made easier to understand. All 
comments will be available at www.regulations.gov for public inspection 
and copying. A public hearing may be scheduled if requested in writing 
by any person that timely submits written comments. If a public hearing 
is scheduled, notice of the date, time, and place for a public hearing 
will be published in the Federal Register.

Drafting Information

    The principal author of these regulations is William E. Blanchard, 
Office of Associate Chief Counsel (Financial Institutions and 
Products). However, other personnel from the IRS and the Treasury 
Department participated in their development.
