The IRS Mission Provide America’s taxpayers top-quality service by helping them understand and meet their tax responsibilities and enforce the law with integrity and fairness to all. Introduction The Internal Revenue Bulletin is the authoritative instrument of the Commissioner of Internal Revenue for announcing official rulings and procedures of the Internal Revenue Service and for publishing Treasury Decisions, Executive Orders, Tax Conventions, legislation, court decisions, and other items of general interest. It is published weekly. It is the policy of the Service to publish in the Bulletin all substantive rulings necessary to promote a uniform application of the tax laws, including all rulings that supersede, revoke, modify, or amend any of those previously published in the Bulletin. All published rulings apply retroactively unless otherwise indicated. Procedures relating solely to matters of internal management are not published; however, statements of internal practices and procedures that affect the rights and duties of taxpayers are published. Revenue rulings represent the conclusions of the Service on the application of the law to the pivotal facts stated in the revenue ruling. In those based on positions taken in rulings to taxpayers or technical advice to Service field offices, identifying details and information of a confidential nature are deleted to prevent unwarranted invasions of privacy and to comply with statutory requirements. Rulings and procedures reported in the Bulletin do not have the force and effect of Treasury Department Regulations, but they may be used as precedents. Unpublished rulings will not be relied on, used, or cited as precedents by Service personnel in the disposition of other cases. In applying published rulings and procedures, the effect of subsequent legislation, regulations, court decisions, rulings, and procedures must be considered, and Service personnel and others concerned are cautioned against reaching the same conclusions in other cases unless the facts and circumstances are substantially the same. The Bulletin is divided into four parts as follows: Part I.—1986 Code. This part includes rulings and decisions based on provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Part II.—Treaties and Tax Legislation. This part is divided into two subparts as follows: Subpart A, Tax Conventions and Other Related Items, and Subpart B, Legislation and Related Committee Reports. Part III.—Administrative, Procedural, and Miscellaneous. To the extent practicable, pertinent cross references to these subjects are contained in the other Parts and Subparts. Also included in this part are Bank Secrecy Act Administrative Rulings. Bank Secrecy Act Administrative Rulings are issued by the Department of the Treasury’s Office of the Assistant Secretary (Enforcement). Part IV.—Items of General Interest. This part includes notices of proposed rulemakings, disbarment and suspension lists, and announcements. The last Bulletin for each month includes a cumulative index for the matters published during the preceding months. These monthly indexes are cumulated on a semiannual basis, and are published in the last Bulletin of each semiannual period. Part III Extension of Replacement Period for Livestock Sold on Account of Drought Notice 2022-43 SECTION 1. PURPOSE This notice provides guidance regarding an extension of the replacement period under § 1033(e) of the Internal Revenue Code for livestock sold on account of drought in specified counties. SECTION 2. BACKGROUND .01 Nonrecognition of Gain on Involuntary Conversion of Livestock. Section 1033(a) generally provides for nonrecognition of gain when property is involuntarily converted and replaced with property that is similar or related in service or use. Section 1033(e)(1) provides that a sale or exchange of livestock (other than poultry) held by a taxpayer for draft, breeding, or dairy purposes in excess of the number that would be sold following the taxpayer’s usual business practices is treated as an involuntary conversion if the livestock is sold or exchanged solely on account of drought, flood, or other weather-related conditions. .02 Replacement Period. Section 1033(a)(2)(A) generally provides that gain from an involuntary conversion is recognized only to the extent the amount realized on the conversion exceeds the cost of replacement property purchased during the replacement period. If a sale or exchange of livestock is treated as an involuntary conversion under § 1033(e)(1) and is solely on account of drought, flood, or other weather-related conditions that result in the area being designated as eligible for assistance by the federal government, § 1033(e)(2)(A) provides that the replacement period ends four years after the close of the first taxable year in which any part of the gain from the conversion is realized. Section 1033(e)(2)(B) provides that the Secretary may extend this replacement period on a regional basis for such additional time as the Secretary determines appropriate if the weather-related conditions that resulted in the area being designated as eligible for assistance by the federal government continue for more than three years. Section 1033(e)(2) is effective for any taxable year with respect to which the due date (without regard to extensions) for a taxpayer’s return is after December 31, 2002. SECTION 3. EXTENSION OF REPLACEMENT PERIOD UNDER § 1033(e)(2)(B) Notice 2006-82, 2006-2 C.B. 529, provides for extensions of the replacement period under § 1033(e)(2)(B). If a sale or exchange of livestock is treated as an involuntary conversion on account of drought and the taxpayer’s replacement period is determined under § 1033(e)(2)(A), the replacement period will be extended under § 1033(e)(2)(B) and Notice 2006-82 until the end of the taxpayer’s first taxable year ending after the first drought-free year for the applicable region. For this purpose, the first drought-free year for the applicable region is the first 12-month period that (1) ends August 31; (2) ends in or after the last year of the taxpayer’s four-year replacement period determined under § 1033(e)(2)(A); and (3) does not include any weekly period for which exceptional, extreme, or severe drought is reported for any location in the applicable region. The applicable region is the county that experienced the drought conditions on account of which the livestock was sold or exchanged and all counties that are contiguous to that county. A taxpayer may determine whether exceptional, extreme, or severe drought is reported for any location in the applicable region by reference to U.S. Drought Monitor maps that are produced on a weekly basis by the National Drought Mitigation Center. U.S. Drought Monitor maps are archived at http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Maps/MapArchive.aspx. In addition, Notice 2006-82 provides that the Internal Revenue Service will publish in September of each year a list of counties1 for which exceptional, extreme, or severe drought was reported during the preceding 12 months. Taxpayers may use this list instead of U.S. Drought Monitor maps to determine whether exceptional, extreme, or severe drought has been reported for any location in the applicable region. The Appendix to this notice contains the list of counties for which exceptional, extreme, or severe drought was reported during the 12-month period ending August 31, 2022. Under Notice 2006-82, the 12-month period ended on August 31, 2022, is not a drought-free year for an applicable region that includes any county on this list. Accordingly, for a taxpayer who qualified for a four-year replacement period for livestock sold or exchanged on account of drought and whose replacement period is scheduled to expire at the end of 2022 (or, in the case of a fiscal year taxpayer, at the end of the taxable year that includes August 31, 2022), the replacement period will be extended under § 1033(e)(2) and Notice 2006-82 if the applicable region includes any county on this list. This extension will continue until the end of the taxpayer’s first taxable year ending after a drought-free year for the applicable region. SECTION 4.

Notice 2022-45 I. PURPOSE This notice extends the deadline for amending an eligible retirement plan (including an individual retirement arrangement (IRA) or annuity contract) to reflect the provisions of section 2202 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, Pub. L. 116-136, 134 Stat. 281 (2020) (CARES Act), and section 302 of Title III of the Taxpayer Certainty and Disaster Tax Relief Act of 2020 (Relief Act), enacted as Division EE of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, Pub. L. 116-260, 134 Stat. 1182. Among other things, section 2202 of the CARES Act and section 302 of the Relief Act provide special tax treatment with respect to a coronavirus-related distribution or a qualified disaster distribution, respectively. Under this notice, the extended amendment deadline applicable to (1) a qualified retirement plan or section 403(b) plan that is not a governmental plan or (2) an IRA is December 31, 2025. Later deadlines apply with respect to governmental retirement plans (including governmental plans under section 457(b) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code)). With respect to an amendment made to reflect provisions of section 2202 of the CARES Act, the period during which the amendment is eligible, if applicable, for relief from the anti-cutback requirements of section 411(d)(6) of the Code or section 204(g) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, Pub. L. 93-406, 88 Stat. 829, as amended (ERISA), is extended to the applicable extended plan amendment deadline.1 II. BACKGROUND A. Section 2202 of the CARES Act Under section 2202 of the CARES Act, enacted on March 27, 2020, and modified by section 280 of the COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020,2 qualified individuals receive favorable tax treatment with respect to coronavirus-related distributions from eligible retirement plans (as defined in section 402(c)(8)(B) of the Code). A coronavirus-related distribution is any distribution from an eligible retirement plan made on or after January 1, 2020, and before December 31, 2020, to a qualified individual. A coronavirus-related distribution is not subject to the additional tax under section 72(t), generally is includible in income over a 3-year period, and, to the extent the distribution is eligible for tax-free rollover treatment and is recontributed to an eligible retirement plan within a 3-year period, is not includible in income. Section 2202 of the CARES Act also increases the allowable plan loan amount under section 72(p) of the Code and permits a suspension of payments for plan loans made to qualified individuals that are outstanding on or after March 27, 2020. See Notice 2020-50, 2020-28 IRB 35, for a detailed description of this relief, including a discussion of related plan amendment deadlines. Under section 2202(c) of the CARES Act, an eligible retirement plan will not be treated as failing to operate in accordance with its terms merely because the plan implements the provisions of section 2202, or any regulations thereunder, if the plan is amended within a prescribed time period and the amendment applies retroactively to the beginning of the period. The period begins on the date that section 2202 (or any regulation thereunder) takes effect, and ends on or before the earlier of (1) the date the amendment is adopted, or (2) the last day of the first plan year beginning on or after January 1, 2022 (or January 1, 2024, in the case of a governmental plan within the meaning of section 414(d) of the Code), or a later date prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury or the Secretary’s delegate (Secretary). A plan satisfying these conditions will not fail to meet the requirements of section 411(d)(6) of the Code and section 204(g) of ERISA by reason of that amendment, except as provided by the Secretary.

Section 302 of the Relief Act Section 302 of the Relief Act, enacted on December 27, 2020, provides favorable tax treatment to qualified individuals with respect to qualified disaster distributions from eligible retirement plans (as defined in section 402(c)(8)(B) of the Code). In general, section 302 of the Relief Act provides qualified individuals favorable tax treatment that is similar to that provided by section 2202 of the CARES Act; however, the relief provided by section 302 of the Relief Act differs from the relief provided by section 2202 of the CARES Act in certain respects. For example, (1) section 302 of the Relief Act provides favorable tax treatment with respect to qualified disaster distributions, which are defined generally as distributions from an eligible retirement plan that are made on or after the date a disaster begins (no earlier than December 28, 2019) and before June 25, 2021, to a qualified individual; (2) the relief granted by section 302 permits a qualified individual, under certain circumstances, to recontribute a qualified distribution that was made to purchase or construct a principal residence in a qualified disaster area but was not so used on account of the qualified disaster; and (3) section 302 does not provide relief with respect to amendments to a plan from the anti-cutback requirements of section 411(d)(6) of the Code and section 204(g) of ERISA. See Form 8915-F, Qualified Disaster Retirement Plan Distributions and Repayments, and related instructions, for a detailed description of relief provided with respect to qualified disaster distributions and repayments, including relief provided under section 302 of the Relief Act. Under section 302(d) of the Relief Act, an eligible retirement plan will not be treated as failing to operate in accordance with its terms merely because the plan implements the provisions of section 302, or any regulations thereunder, if the plan is amended within a prescribed time period and the amendment applies retroactively to the beginning of the period. The period begins on the date that section 302 (or any regulation thereunder) takes effect, and ends on or before the earlier of (1) the date the amendment is adopted, or (2) the last day of the first plan year beginning on or after January 1, 2022 (or January 1, 2024, in the case of a governmental plan within the meaning of section 414(d) of the Code), or a later date prescribed by the Secretary. III. EXTENSION OF PLAN AMENDMENT DEADLINES; ANTI-CUTBACK RELIEF A. Extension of plan amendment deadlines Pursuant to the authority of the Secretary under section 2202(c) of the CARES Act and section 302 of the Relief Act, the deadlines for amending an eligible retirement plan (including an IRA or annuity contract) to reflect the provisions of section 2202 of the CARES Act or section 302 of the Relief Act, or any regulations thereunder, are hereby extended as follows: (1) Qualified plans In general, for a qualified plan that is not a governmental plan within the meaning of section 414(d) of the Code, the deadline to amend a plan is December 31, 2025. The plan amendment deadline for a qualified governmental plan, within the meaning of section 414(d), is 90 days after the close of the third regular legislative session of the legislative body with the authority to amend the plan that begins after December 31, 2023. (2) Section 403(b) plans In general, for a section 403(b) plan that is not maintained by a public school, as described in section 403(b)(1)(A)(ii), the deadline to amend a plan is December 31, 2025. The plan amendment deadline for a section 403(b) plan that is maintained by a public school, as described in section 403(b)(1)(A)(ii), is 90 days after the close of the third regular legislative session of the legislative body with the authority to amend the plan that begins after December 31, 2023. (3) Section 457(b) plans The deadline to amend a governmental plan under section 457(b) of the Code is the later of (1) 90 days after the close of the third regular legislative session of the legislative body with the authority to amend the plan that begins after December 31, 2023, or (2) if applicable, the first day of the first plan year beginning more than 180 days after the date of notification by the Secretary that the plan was administered in a manner that is inconsistent with the requirements of section 457(b) of the Code. (4) IRAs The deadline to amend the trust governing an IRA that is an individual retirement account or the contract issued by an insurance company with respect to an IRA that is an individual retirement annuity is December 31, 2025. B. Anti-cutback relief Amendments to an eligible retirement plan (including an annuity contract) to reflect a provision of section 2202 of the CARES Act or any regulations thereunder that are made on or before the dates as extended under section III.A of this notice will not cause the plan to fail to satisfy the anti-cutback requirements of section 411(d)(6) of the Code or section 204(g) of ERISA, if applicable, by reason of the amendments. IV. DRAFTING INFORMATION The principal author of this notice is Angelique Carrington of the Office of Associate Chief Counsel (Employee Benefits, Exempt Organizations, and Employment Taxes). For further information regarding this notice, contact Ms. Carrington at (202) 317-4148 (not a toll-free number). 1 Notice 2022-33, 2022-34 IRB 147, extends the deadlines for amending a retirement plan or IRA to reflect certain provisions of Division O of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, Pub. L. 116-94, 133 Stat. 2534 (2019), known as the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (SECURE Act), and section 104 of Division M of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, known as the Bipartisan American Miners Act of 2019 (Miners Act), and extends to the extended plan amendment deadline the period during which an amendment to reflect provisions of the SECURE Act is eligible, if applicable, for relief from the anti-cutback requirements of section 411(d)(6) of the Code or section 204(g) of ERISA. Notice 2022-33 also extends the deadline for amending a retirement plan to reflect the provisions of section 2203 of the CARES Act. The deadlines set forth in this notice are the same as the deadlines set forth in Notice 2022-33. Accordingly, it is anticipated that amendments to reflect the CARES Act and Relief Act as described in this notice, as well as the SECURE Act, Miners Act, and CARES Act amendments described in Notice 2022-33, may be adopted on a single date. 2 The COVID-related Tax Relief Act of 2020 was enacted as Subtitle B, Title II, Division N, of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. References in this notice to section 2202 of the CARES Act are to section 2202 as modified. Definition of Terms Revenue rulings and revenue procedures (hereinafter referred to as “rulings”) that have an effect on previous rulings use the following defined terms to describe the effect: Amplified describes a situation where no change is being made in a prior published position, but the prior position is being extended to apply to a variation of the fact situation set forth therein. Thus, if an earlier ruling held that a principle applied to A, and the new ruling holds that the same principle also applies to B, the earlier ruling is amplified. (Compare with modified, below). Clarified is used in those instances where the language in a prior ruling is being made clear because the language has caused, or may cause, some confusion. It is not used where a position in a prior ruling is being changed. Distinguished describes a situation where a ruling mentions a previously published ruling and points out an essential difference between them. Modified is used where the substance of a previously published position is being changed. Thus, if a prior ruling held that a principle applied to A but not to B, and the new ruling holds that it applies to both A and B, the prior ruling is modified because it corrects a published position. (Compare with amplified and clarified, above). Obsoleted describes a previously published ruling that is not considered determinative with respect to future transactions. This term is most commonly used in a ruling that lists previously published rulings that are obsoleted because of changes in laws or regulations. A ruling may also be obsoleted because the substance has been included in regulations subsequently adopted. Revoked describes situations where the position in the previously published ruling is not correct and the correct position is being stated in a new ruling. Superseded describes a situation where the new ruling does nothing more than restate the substance and situation of a previously published ruling (or rulings). Thus, the term is used to republish under the 1986 Code and regulations the same position published under the 1939 Code and regulations. The term is also used when it is desired to republish in a single ruling a series of situations, names, etc., that were previously published over a period of time in separate rulings. If the new ruling does more than restate the substance of a prior ruling, a combination of terms is used. For example, modified and superseded describes a situation where the substance of a previously published ruling is being changed in part and is continued without change in part and it is desired to restate the valid portion of the previously published ruling in a new ruling that is self contained. In this case, the previously published ruling is first modified and then, as modified, is superseded. Supplemented is used in situations in which a list, such as a list of the names of countries, is published in a ruling and that list is expanded by adding further names in subsequent rulings. After the original ruling has been supplemented several times, a new ruling may be published that includes the list in the original ruling and the additions, and supersedes all prior rulings in the series. Suspended is used in rare situations to show that the previous published rulings will not be applied pending some future action such as the issuance of new or amended regulations, the outcome of cases in litigation, or the outcome of a Service study.
