In addition, the service provider must maintain on file the names and addresses of individual remitters or travelers, the number and amount of each remittance, and that name and address of each recipient, as applicable. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collections. Affected Public: Individuals, households, businesses, nongovernmental organizations, and banking institutions. The likely respondents and record-keepers affected by this collection of information are persons using U.S. remittance forwarding services and U.S. travel and carrier services. For 1505–0167 (remittance forwarding services): Estimated Number of Respondents: 4,000,000 respondents; 7,000,000 total filings. Estimated Time per Respondent: 1 minute. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Apr 29, 2019 Jkt 247001 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 116,667 hours. For 1505–0168 (travel and carrier services): Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,750,000. Estimated Time per Respondent: 1 minute. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 29,167 hours. Request for Comments Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information has practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information.
