Notice of proposed rulemaking and notice of public hearing.
This document contains proposed regulations relating to information reporting requirements, information reporting penalties, and backup withholding requirements for payment card and third party network transactions.

The proposed regulations provide guidance to assist persons who will be required to make returns reporting payment card and third party
network transactions and to the payees of those transactions. This document also provides notice of a public hearing on these proposed amendments to the regulations.
