ADDRESSES: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PRA Approval of Forms Used by Individual Taxpayers Under the PRA, OMB assigns a control number to each ‘‘collection of information’’ that it reviews and approves for use by an agency.

PO 00000 Frm 00128 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Taxpayer Burden Model The Individual Taxpayer Burden Model (ITBM) estimates burden experienced by individual taxpayers when complying with Federal tax laws and incorporates results from a survey of tax year 2011 individual taxpayers, conducted in 2012 and 2013. The approach to measuring burden focuses on the characteristics and activities undertaken by individual taxpayers in meeting their tax return filing obligations. Burden is defined as the time and outof-pocket costs incurred by taxpayers in complying with the Federal tax system and are estimated separately. Out-ofpocket costs include any expenses incurred by taxpayers to prepare and submit their tax returns. Examples include tax return preparation fees, the purchase price of tax preparation software, submission fees, photocopying costs, postage, and phone calls (if not toll-free). The methodology distinguishes among preparation method, taxpayer activities, taxpayer type, filing method, and income level. Indicators of tax law and administrative complexity, as reflected in the tax forms and instructions, are incorporated into the model. Preparation methods reflected in the model are as follows: • Self-prepared without software, • Self-prepared with software, and • Use of a paid preparer or tax professional. Types of taxpayer activities reflected in the model are as follows: • Recordkeeping, • Tax planning, • Gathering tax materials, • Use of services (IRS and other), • Form completion, and • Form submission. Taxpayer Burden Estimates Summary level results using this methodology are presented in Table 1 below. The data shown are the best forward-looking estimates available for income tax returns filed for tax year 2013. Table 1 shows burden estimates based on current statutory requirements as of November 21, 2013 for taxpayers filing a 2013 Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ tax return. Time spent and out-of-pocket costs are presented separately. Time burden is broken out by taxpayer activity, with record keeping representing the largest component. Out-of-pocket costs include any expenses incurred by taxpayers to prepare and submit their tax returns. Examples include tax return preparation E:\FR\FM\30APN1.SGM 30APN1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 83 / Wednesday, April 30, 2014 / Notices and submission fees, postage and photocopying costs, and tax preparation software costs. While these estimates do not include burden associated with post-filing activities, IRS operational data indicate that electronically prepared and filed returns have fewer arithmetic errors, implying lower postfiling burden. Reported time and cost burdens are national averages and do not necessarily reflect a ‘‘typical’’ case. Most taxpayers experience lower than average burden, with taxpayer burden varying considerably by taxpayer type. For instance, the estimated average time burden for all taxpayers filing a Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ is 12 hours, with an average cost of $210 per return. This average includes all associated forms and schedules, across all preparation methods and taxpayer activities. The average burden for taxpayers filing Form 1040 is about 15 hours and $280; the average burden for taxpayers filing Form 1040A is about 7 hours and $90; and the average for Form 1040EZ filers is about 4 hours and $30. Within each of these estimates there is significant variation in taxpayer activity. For example, non-business taxpayers are expected to have an average burden of about 7 hours and $120, while business taxpayers are expected to have an average burden of about 24 hours and $430. Similarly, tax preparation fees and other out-of-pocket costs vary extensively depending on the tax situation of the taxpayer, the type of software or professional preparer used, and the geographic location.

Abstract: These forms are used by individuals to report their income tax liability. The data is used to verify that the items reported on the forms are correct, and also for general statistical use. Current Actions: The change in estimated aggregate compliance burden can be explained by three major sources—technical adjustments, statutory changes, and discretionary agency (IRS) actions. Technical Adjustments—The largest adjustments are from incorporation of updated tax return data, macroeconomic data, and survey data as well as refinements in the estimation methodology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

PRA Approval of Forms Used by Individual Taxpayers

    Under the PRA, OMB assigns a control number to each ``collection of 
information'' that it reviews and approves for use by an agency. The 
PRA also requires agencies to estimate the burden for each collection 
of information. Burden estimates for each control number are displayed 
in (1) PRA notices that accompany collections of information, (2) 
Federal Register notices such as this one, and (3) OMB's database of 
approved information collections.

Taxpayer Burden Model

    The Individual Taxpayer Burden Model (ITBM) estimates burden 
experienced by individual taxpayers when complying with Federal tax 
laws and incorporates results from a survey of tax year 2011 individual 
taxpayers, conducted in 2012 and 2013. The approach to measuring burden 
focuses on the characteristics and activities undertaken by individual 
taxpayers in meeting their tax return filing obligations.
    Burden is defined as the time and out-of-pocket costs incurred by 
taxpayers in complying with the Federal tax system and are estimated 
separately. Out-of-pocket costs include any expenses incurred by 
taxpayers to prepare and submit their tax returns. Examples include tax 
return preparation fees, the purchase price of tax preparation 
software, submission fees, photocopying costs, postage, and phone calls 
(if not toll-free).
    The methodology distinguishes among preparation method, taxpayer 
activities, taxpayer type, filing method, and income level. Indicators 
of tax law and administrative complexity, as reflected in the tax forms 
and instructions, are incorporated into the model.
    Preparation methods reflected in the model are as follows:
     Self-prepared without software,
     Self-prepared with software, and
     Use of a paid preparer or tax professional.
    Types of taxpayer activities reflected in the model are as follows:
     Recordkeeping,
     Tax planning,
     Gathering tax materials,
     Use of services (IRS and other),
     Form completion, and
     Form submission.

Taxpayer Burden Estimates

    Summary level results using this methodology are presented in Table 
1 below. The data shown are the best forward-looking estimates 
available for income tax returns filed for tax year 2013.
    Table 1 shows burden estimates based on current statutory 
requirements as of November 21, 2013 for taxpayers filing a 2013 Form 
1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ tax return. Time spent and out-of-pocket costs 
are presented separately. Time burden is broken out by taxpayer 
activity, with record keeping representing the largest component. Out-
of-pocket costs include any expenses incurred by taxpayers to prepare 
and submit their tax returns. Examples include tax return preparation

[[Page 24499]]

and submission fees, postage and photocopying costs, and tax 
preparation software costs. While these estimates do not include burden 
associated with post-filing activities, IRS operational data indicate 
that electronically prepared and filed returns have fewer arithmetic 
errors, implying lower post-filing burden.
    Reported time and cost burdens are national averages and do not 
necessarily reflect a ``typical'' case. Most taxpayers experience lower 
than average burden, with taxpayer burden varying considerably by 
taxpayer type. For instance, the estimated average time burden for all 
taxpayers filing a Form 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ is 12 hours, with an 
average cost of $210 per return. This average includes all associated 
forms and schedules, across all preparation methods and taxpayer 
activities. The average burden for taxpayers filing Form 1040 is about 
15 hours and $280; the average burden for taxpayers filing Form 1040A 
is about 7 hours and $90; and the average for Form 1040EZ filers is 
about 4 hours and $30.
    Within each of these estimates there is significant variation in 
taxpayer activity. For example, non-business taxpayers are expected to 
have an average burden of about 7 hours and $120, while business 
taxpayers are expected to have an average burden of about 24 hours and 
$430. Similarly, tax preparation fees and other out-of-pocket costs 
vary extensively depending on the tax situation of the taxpayer, the 
type of software or professional preparer used, and the geographic 
location.

    Abstract: These forms are used by individuals to report their 
income tax liability. The data is used to verify that the items 
reported on the forms are correct, and also for general statistical 
use.
    Current Actions: The change in estimated aggregate compliance 
burden can be explained by three major sources--technical adjustments, 
statutory changes, and discretionary agency (IRS) actions.
    Technical Adjustments--The largest adjustments are from 
incorporation of updated tax return data, macroeconomic data, and 
survey data as well as refinements in the estimation methodology. 
Updating the FY13 macroeconomic data and incorporating new tax return 
data lead to the largest technical adjustments. The impact of each 
technical adjustment can be seen below.

    IRS Discretionary Changes--Introduction of the Office in the Home 
Safe Harbor impacts approximately 600,000 filers and decreases time by 
1,600,000 hours (rounded to 2,000,000 hours) and money by $7,000,000. 
All other IRS discretionary changes had a negligible impact on taxpayer 
burden.
