Download as PDF 18004 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 82 / Monday, April 29, 2019 / Notices information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act. Agency: U.S. Census Bureau. Title: Quarterly Summary of State and Local Government Tax Revenues. OMB Control Number: 0607–0112. Form Number(s): F–71, F–72, F–73. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Number of Respondents: 7,351. Average Hours per Response: 29,404. Burden Hours: 8,002. Needs and Uses: State and local government tax collections, amounting to nearly $1.4 trillion annually, constitute approximately 43 percent of all governmental revenues. Quarterly measurement of, and reporting on, these fund flows provides valuable insight into trends in the national economy and that of individual states. Information collected on the type and quantity of taxes collected gives comparative data on how the various levels of government fund their public sector obligations. The Census Bureau conducts the Quarterly Summary of State & Local Government Tax Revenues (Q-Tax Survey) to provide quarterly estimates of state and local government tax revenue at a national level, as well as detailed tax revenue data for individual states. It serves as a timely source of tax data for many data users and policy makers and is the most current information available on a nationwide basis for government tax collections. There are three components to the QTax Survey. The first component is the Quarterly Survey of Property Tax Collections (F–71), which collects property tax data from local governments. The second component is the Quarterly Survey of State Tax Collections (F–72), which collect data comprised of 25 different tax categories for all 50 states. The third component is the Quarterly Survey of Selected NonProperty Taxes (F–73), which collects local tax revenue data for three taxes: Sales and gross receipts taxes, individual income taxes, and corporation net income taxes. We are requesting a three-year extension of these information collection forms without changes. The Census Bureau conducts the three components of the Q-Tax Survey to collect state and local government tax data for this data series established in 1962. Tax collection data are used to measure economic activity for the Nation as a whole, as well as for comparison among the states. These data are also used in comparing the mix of taxes employed by individual states and in determining the revenue raising capacity of different types of taxes in different states. Key users of these data include the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), the Federal Reserve Board (FRB), and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) who rely on these data to provide the most current information on the financial status of state and local governments. These data are included in the quarterly estimates of the National Income and Product Accounts developed by BEA. HUD has used the property tax data as one of nine cost indicators for developing Section 8 rent adjustments. Legislators, policy makers, administrators, analysts, economists, and researchers use these data to monitor trends in public sector revenues. Journalists, teachers, and students use these data as well for their research purposes. Affected Public: State, local or Tribal government. Frequency: Quarterly. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Sections 161 and 182. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to OIRA_Submission@ omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395–5806.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party that requested a review withdraws its request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of initiation. Only the petitioners requested review of these five companies. As such, all review requests have been withdrawn for these companies, as detailed above. Therefore, Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to those five companies, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1). The review will continue with respect to the other companies for which a review was requested and initiated: Hyundai Steel Company, POSCO, and POSCO Daewoo Corporation.6 Background Assessment On October 1, 2018, Commerce published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from Korea.1 Pursuant to requests from interested parties, Commerce initiated an administrative review with respect to eight companies for the period October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018.2 Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.3 If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. The tolled deadline Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For the companies for which this review is rescinded, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(l)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instruction to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice. 1 See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity to Request Administrative Review, 83 FR 49358 (October 1, 2018). 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 83 FR 63615 (December 11, 2018) (Initiation). 3 See memorandum to the Record from Gary Taverman, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ‘‘Deadlines Affected by the Partial Shutdown of the Federal Government,’’ dated January 28, 2019.
