July 14, 2003
This notice provides guidance to state authorities responsible for allocating private activity bond state ceiling under section 146(e) of the Code. It clarifies that the deadline for allocating any portion of the state ceiling under section 146(e) is the earlier of (1) February 15 of the calendar year following the year in which the state ceiling arises, or (2) the date of issue of bonds issued pursuant to an allocation of that portion of the state ceiling.
This notice provides guidance to issuing authorities on the deadline for assigning private activity bond volume cap under section 146 of the Code to other issuing authorities. It clarifies that the deadline for an issuing authority to assign any portion of its volume cap to another issuing authority in the state is the earlier of (1) February 15 of the calendar year following the year in which the state ceiling represented by that volume cap arises, or (2) the date of issue of bonds issued pursuant to the assignment of that portion of the volume cap.
This notice announces the intention of the IRS and Treasury to withdraw the extraordinary transaction rule from the NPRM (REG-110385-99, 1999-2 C.B. 670) and to finalize the remaining portions of the NPRM.
This procedure provides relief to issuing authorities that failed to file Form 8328, Carryforward Election of Unused Private Activity Bond Volume Cap, under section 146(f) of the Code for years prior to 2003 because the authority responsible for allocating state ceiling in their state filed Form 8328 instead. The relief is necessary because the Form 8328 (1) should have been filed by the issuing authority and (2) fails to provide the information required under regulations section 1.103(n)-4T (as amended by the Tax Reform Act of 1986).
