Department of Treasury May 31, 2018 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Filing Requirements for Information Returns Required on Magnetic Media (Electronically)
Document Number: 2018-11749
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2018-05-31
Agency: Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document contains proposed regulations amending the rules for determining whether information returns must be filed using magnetic media (electronically). The proposed regulations would require that all information returns, regardless of type, be taken into account to determine whether a person meets the 250-return threshold and, therefore, must file the information returns electronically. The proposed regulations also would require any person required to file information returns electronically to file corrected information returns electronically, regardless of the number of corrected information returns being filed. The proposed regulations will affect persons required to file information returns.
