Fees for Customs Processing at Express Consignment Carrier Facilities
Document Number: E6-12067
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-28
Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Department of the Treasury, Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, Customs and Border Protection Bureau
This document proposes amendments to title 19 of the Code of Federal Regulations (19 CFR) to reflect changes to the customs user fee statute made by section 337 of the Trade Act of 2002 and section 2004(f) of the Miscellaneous Trade and Technical Corrections Act of 2004. The statutory amendments made by section 337 concern the fees payable for customs services provided in connection with the informal entry or release of shipments at express consignment carrier facilities and centralized hub facilities, and primarily serve to replace the annual lump sum payment procedure with a quarterly payment procedure based on a specific fee for each individual air waybill or bill of lading. Section 2004(f) amended the user fee statute to authorize, for merchandise that is formally entered at these sites, the assessment of merchandise processing fees provided for in 19 U.S.C. 58c(a)(9), in addition to the fees that are currently assessed on individual air waybills or bills of lading. Lastly, pursuant to the authority established in 19 U.S.C. 58c(b)(9)(B)(i), this document proposes to raise the existing $0.66 fee assessed on individual air waybills or bills of lading to $1.00 to more equitably align it with the actual costs incurred by CBP in processing these items.

Major Food Allergen Labeling for Wines, Distilled Spirits, and Malt Beverages
Document Number: E6-11872
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-26
Agency: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This interim rule, which parallels the recent amendments to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act contained in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004, adopts labeling standards for major food allergens used in the production of alcohol beverages subject to the labeling requirements of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act. In addition, elsewhere in this issue of the Federal Register, we are publishing a notice of proposed rulemaking that proposes to make major food allergen labeling mandatory. That notice solicits comments from the public, including consumers and affected industry members, on the proposed labeling requirements and the time frame for making the requirements mandatory. Under the interim regulations, producers, bottlers, and importers of wines, distilled spirits, and malt beverages may voluntarily declare the presence of milk, eggs, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, and soybeans, as well as ingredients that contain protein derived from these foods, in their products, but are not required to do so. The interim regulations, however, set forth rules that are mandatory for how industry members must undertake such labeling, should they choose to do so. The regulations also contain procedures for petitioning for an exemption from the standards imposed on those alcohol beverage producers who wish to make voluntary allergen statements on their product labels.
Major Food Allergen Labeling for Wines, Distilled Spirits and Malt Beverages
Document Number: 06-6467
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-26
Agency: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
In this notice, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau proposes the adoption of mandatory labeling standards for major food allergens used in the production of alcohol beverages subject to the labeling requirements of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act. The proposed regulations set forth in this document also provide procedures for petitioning for an exemption from allergen labeling. The proposed regulations parallel the recent amendments to the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act contained in the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004. Under the proposed regulations, producers, bottlers, and importers of wines, distilled spirits, and malt beverages must declare the presence of milk, eggs, fish, Crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, wheat, peanuts, and soybeans, as well as ingredients that contain protein derived from these foods, on a product label unless an exemption applies to the product in question.
Assessment of Fees
Document Number: E6-11804
Type: Rule
Date: 2006-07-25
Agency: Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury, Comptroller of the Currency
The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) is adopting in final form, without change, an interim final rule that amended our regulations at 12 CFR part 8 concerning the timing of payments of OCC assessments. The interim rule replaced the process used to determine the amount of assessment due to the OCC. Previously, national banks were required to make the initial calculation of the amount due to the OCC. Under the interim rule, the OCC, rather than each national bank, calculates the semiannual assessment based on the most recent Consolidated Reports of Condition and Income (Call Report). The assessment is due by March 31 and September 30 of each year, two months later than under the previous process. Thus, payments that would have been due on January 31 of each year are instead due on March 31, and payments that would have been due on July 31 are due on September 30 of each year. The OCC will notify each national bank of the amount of its semiannual assessment and automatically deduct that amount from each bank's designated account on the payment due date. The interim rule changed the assessment collection process only; it did not make any changes to the method for calculating assessments due from national banks.

Suspension of Statutes of Limitations in Third-Party and John Doe Summons Disputes and Expansion of Taxpayers' Rights To Receive Notice and Seek Judicial Review of Third-Party Summonses
Document Number: E6-11543
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-21
Agency: Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document contains proposed amendments to the regulations relating to third-party and John Doe summonses. These proposed regulations reflect amendments to sections 7603 and 7609 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 made by the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998, the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990, the Technical and Miscellaneous Revenue Act of 1988, and the Tax Reform Act of 1986, which were enacted subsequent to adoption of the current regulations. These proposed regulations provide guidance relating to the manner in which summonses may be served on third-party recordkeepers, the expanded class of third-party summonses subject to notice requirements and other procedures, and the suspension of periods of limitations if a court proceeding is brought involving a challenge to a third-party summons, or if a third party's response to a summons is not finally resolved within six months after service. These proposed regulations affect third parties who are served with a summons, taxpayers identified in a third-party summons, and other persons entitled to notice of a third-party summons.
Proposed Revision of Annual Information Return/Reports
Document Number: 06-6329
Type: Notice
Date: 2006-07-21
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor, Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, Agencies and Commissions, Department of the Treasury
This document contains proposed revisions to the Form 5500 Annual Return/Report forms, including a proposed new Short Form 5500, filed for employee pension and welfare benefit plans under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) and the Internal Revenue Code (Code). The Form 5500 Annual Return/Report, including its schedules and attachments (Form 5500 Annual Return/Report), is an important source of financial, funding, and other information about employee benefit plans for the Department of Labor, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and the Internal Revenue Service (the Agencies), as well as for plan sponsors, participants and beneficiaries, and the general public. The proposed revisions to the Form 5500 Annual Return/ Report, contained in this document, including a new Form 5500-SF short form annual return/report for certain types of small pension plans, are intended to reduce and streamline annual reporting burdens, especially for small businesses, update the annual reporting forms to reflect current issues and agency priorities, and facilitate the establishment of a wholly electronic filing system for receipt of the Form 5500 Annual Returns/Reports. The form revisions thus would, upon adoption, apply for the reporting year for which the electronic filing requirement is implemented. The proposed revisions would affect employee pension and welfare benefit plans, plan sponsors, administrators, and service providers to plans subject to annual reporting requirements under ERISA and the Code.

Agency: United States Mint, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The recent drop in the price of gold requires that the United States Mint reduce the prices on its 2006 American Eagle Gold Proof Coins. Pursuant to the authority that 31 U.S.C. 5112(i) and 5111(a)(3) grant the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue gold coins, and to prepare and distribute numismatic items, the United States Mint mints and issues American Eagle Gold Proof Coins in four denominations: One-ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, one-tenth ounce, and a four-coin set that contains one coin of each denomination. In accordance with 31 U.S.C. 9701(b)(2)(B), the United States Mint is changing the price of these coins to reflect the decrease in value of the underlying precious metal content of the coinsthe result of recent decreases in the market price of gold. Accordingly, effective July 12, 2006, the United States Mint will commence selling these gold proof coins according to the following price schedule: one-ounce gold proof coin (Sold Out), one-half ounce gold proof coin ($420.00), one- quarter ounce gold proof coin ($215.00), one-tenth ounce gold proof coin ($105.00), and four-coin gold proof set ($1,495.00).

At the end of the comment period, the comments and recommendations received will be analyzed to determine the extent to which the FFIEC should modify the report. The agencies will then submit the report to OMB for review and approval.
