Abstract: Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code requires issuers of taxexempt bonds to rebate certain arbitrage profits earned on nonpurpose investments acquired with the bond proceeds. Under section 148(f), interest on a state or local bond is not tax exempt unless the issuer of the bond rebates to the United States arbitrage profits earned from investing proceeds of the bond in higher yielding nonpurpose investments. Form 8038–T is used to pay the arbitrage rebate to the United States and to pay penalty in lieu of rebates. Burden for the form is being reported under 1545–1219. Issuers are also required to keep records of certain interest rate hedges so that the hedges are taken into account in determining arbitrage profits. Under TD 8718, the scope of interest rate hedging transactions covered by the arbitrage regulations was broadened by requiring that hedges entered into prior to the sale date of the bonds are covered as well. The collection of information in the proposed regulation (REG–138526–14) is in § 1.148–1(f)(2)(ii) which contains a requirement that the issuer obtain certifications and supporting documentation regarding the underwriter’s sales of the issuer’s bonds. Current Actions: There is no change to the final regulations (TD 8718), however the agency is adding the proposed Regulation 138526–14 to the information collection request. Type of Review: Revision of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: State, local or tribal governments. Estimated Number of Respondents: 15,646 Estimated Number of Responses: 24,010. Estimated Time per Respondent: 4 hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 96,040.
