FEI's Washington DC Government Affairs office reports that the Internal Revenue Service is giving interested parties more time to submit comments on its recent proposal to require companies to disclose information about their uncertain tax positions.
FEI submitted a request for the extension directly to IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman, IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins, and IRS LMSB Commissioner Heather Maloy. FEI's Committee on Taxation (COT) is reviewing Ann. 2010-09 on Uncertain Tax Positions as it considers filing a comment letter.
The comment deadline on Ann. 2010-09 has been extended to June 1, 2010. See:
