New Regulations on Public Inspection of Letter Rulings

On February 28, the IRS issued final regulations amending sections 301.6104(a)-1(i) and 301.6110-1(a) to expressly allow public inspection of letter rulings denying or revoking an organization’s tax exempt status. The amendments are in response to Tax Analysts v. IRS, 350 F.2d 100 (D.C. Cir. 2003), in which the court held that including denials and revocations of tax exempt status “within the ambit of section 6104″ and, thus, preventing disclosure, violated the plain language of section 6110. The final regulations are published in T.D. 9581, which can be read in full here.
