Pursuant 50 U.S.C. 4558(f)(2), the VISA may be extended for an additional period of 5 years provided (a) the Maritime Administrator (Administrator) certifies by publication in the Federal Register that the VISA is necessary for the national defense or preparedness programs and (b) the Attorney General (after consultation with the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC)) finds that such purpose may not reasonably be achieved through a voluntary agreement or plan of action having less anticompetitive effects or without any voluntary agreement. By this notice, the Administrator determines that conditions exist which may pose a direct threat to the national defense of the United States or its preparedness programs and certifies that the VISA, a standby agreement for utilization of intermodal shipping services/systems, is necessary for the national defense or preparedness programs. The Attorney General, after consultation with the Chairman of the FTC, found the national defense or preparedness programs may not reasonably be achieved through a voluntary agreement or plan of action having less anticompetitive effects or without any voluntary agreement. Publication of these findings in this notice satisfies the publication requirements of 50 U.S.C. 4558(f). Accordingly, the VISA, as published in the Federal Register on October 29, 2014 (79 FR 64462), is extended until October 1, 2024.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: 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 PO 00000 Frm 00205 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information, (2) Federal Register notices such as this one, and (3) OMB’s database of approved information collections. Taxpayer Burden 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). Taxpayer Burden Estimates Table 1 shows the preliminary burden estimates for individual taxpayers filing 2020 Form 1040, Form 1040NR, Form 1040NR–EZ, Form 1040X, 1040–SR tax return. The estimate is preliminary and reflects only the change in burden from technical adjustments related to updating the number of affected taxpayers to reflect the FY2020 forecast. The estimate will be revised to reflect legislative and regulatory changes since 2018 and further detail about the burden estimates will be provided for the 30day notice for this FRN. 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. Proposed PRA Submission to OMB Title: U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. OMB Number: 1545–0074. Form Numbers: Form 1040; Form 1040NR; Form 1040NR–EZ, Form 1040X, 1040–SR and all attachments and related forms (see the Appendix A to this notice). Abstract: OMB number 1545–0074 reports the estimated burden incurred by individual taxpayers to meet their tax-compliance-related reporting requirements. The estimate is preliminary and reflects only the change in burden related to technical adjustments related to updating the number of affected taxpayers to reflect the FY2020 forecast. Type of Review: Revision of currently approved collections. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Estimated Number of Respondents: 159,800,000. Total Estimated Time: 1.755 billion hours (1,755,000,000 hours). Estimated Time per Respondent: 10.98 hours. E:\FR\FM\30SEN1.SGM 30SEN1
