Public Written Statements Currently Under Development

The following is a list of public written statements currently under development within the Department of Revenue, which is being made available for the general information of taxpayers.

The list will be updated at least quarterly and posted within the Legal Library section of the DOR website. The list of projects under development is not necessarily all-inclusive and the scope of projects is subject to modification. Specifically not included on this list are requests for Letter Rulings from individual taxpayers. New legislation and court decisions will be addressed as they arise. The list is not indicative of a time frame for either formal proposal of regulations or completion of other public written statements such as TIRs and Directives.  Although the list is broken down by projects likely to result in regulations, regulation amendments, and other public written statements, that categorization is not necessarily determinative of the final form in which guidance will be issued.  Generally, draft regulations are released for public comment prior to promulgation and many other public written statements are released in draft form for public comment prior to issuance.
