Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 206 / Thursday, October 24, 2013 / Notices 1(e)(4)(iv) provides that a withholding agent may establish a system for a beneficial owner to electronically furnish a Form W–8 or an acceptable substitute Form W–8. Withholding agents with systems that electronically collect Forms W–8 may voluntarily choose to participate in the IRS EW–8 MOU Program. The EW–8 MOU Program is a collaborative process between the withholding agents and IRS. Current Actions: On March 18, 2010, the Hiring Incentives to Restore Employment Act of 2010, Public Law 111–147 (H.R. 2847) (the Act) was enacted into law. Section 501(a) of the Act added chapter 4 (sections 1471– 1474) to Subtitle A of the Code. Section 1471(a) generally requires a withholding agent to deduct and withhold a tax equal to 30 percent on any withholdable payment made to an FFI, unless the FFI has an agreement requiring such FFI to satisfy the obligations specified in section 1471(b). On January 28, 2013, the Treasury Department and IRS issued final regulations under chapter 4 (sections 1471–1474) in T.D. 9610 (78 FR 5874). The general requirements of an FFI Agreement are described in § 1.1471–4 and provided the substantive 63571 requirements applicable to a participating FFI under the FFI agreement. Various changes were made to the forms covered under this approval number to comply with the withholding, due diligence, reporting requirements of U.S. accounts (defined in § 1.1471–1(b)(125)), and expanded affiliate group requirements of a participating FFI are described in § 1.1471–4(a) through (e). Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Individuals, business or other for-profit organizations, and not-for-profit institutions.
