This document contains a proposed regulation that proposes to amend existing regulations issued under section 7508A of the Internal Revenue Code (Code). The purpose of the proposed regulation is to clarify rules relating to the postponement of certain tax-related acts by reason of a Presidentially declared disaster or terroristic or military action. The proposed regulation clarifies the scope of relief under section 7508A and specifies that interest may be suspended during the postponement period. These changes are necessary to reflect changes in the law made by the Victims of Terrorism Tax Relief Act and current IRS practice. The proposed regulation will affect taxpayers determined by the Secretary to be affected by a Presidentially declared disaster or terroristic or military action.
