04 May 2020 3:35 PM | Anonymous

Notice 2020-25 temporarily expands the circumstances and time periods in which a tax-exempt bond that is purchased by its state or local governmental issuer is treated as continuing in effect without resulting in a reissuance or retirement of the purchased tax-exempt bond solely for purposes of § 103 and §§ 141 through 150 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Revenue Procedure 2020-21 provides temporary guidance regarding the public approval requirement under § 147(f) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) for tax-exempt qualified private activity bonds.  Specifically, in light of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, this revenue procedure provides that hearings held by teleconference as described in section 4.01 of this revenue procedure will be treated as held in a location that, based on the facts and circumstances, is convenient for residents of the approving governmental unit for the purpose of § 1.147-1(d)(2) of the Income Tax Regulations. 

Notice 2020-25  and Revenue Procedure 2020-21 will be in IRB 2020-22, dated May 26, 2020.
