Announcement 2014–27


AGENCY:

Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Treasury.

ACTION:

Request for comments about eliminating the index of the Internal Revenue Bulletin (IRB).

SUMMARY:

In 2013, the IRS transitioned to only creating an electronic version of the IRB. The IRS proposes, in the future, to no longer create an index for the IRB. The IRS is requesting comments about eliminating the index of the Internal Revenue Bulletin.

DATE:

Public comments are requested on or before October 7, 2014.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In 2013, the IRS stopped printing paper copies of the IRB and transitioned to only creating an electronic version of the IRB. In its electronic format, the IRB may be searched through the search function on the IRS website. Currently, an index appears at the end of every fourth issue of the IRB. Given that the electronic version of the IRB may be searched electronically, that there appears to be little or no use for the index carried over from the printed paper copies of the IRB, and in order to reduce costs and improve publication efficiency, the IRS proposes to cease creating the index that appears at the end of every fourth issue of the IRB beginning with IRB 2015–01, to be published on January 5, 2015.

The IRS is requesting comments about eliminating the index of the Internal Revenue Bulletin. Please send your comments to the address listed below.

EFFECT ON OTHER DOCUMENTS:

Announcement 2013–12, 2013–11 I.R.B. 651, is supplemented.
