are under section 6045A of the Internal Revenue Code. The temporary 
regulations (TD 9713) were published in the Federal Register on Friday, 
March 13, 2015 (80 FR 13233).

Need for Amendments

    Under Sec.  1.6045A-1, a broker is required to provide certain 
information relating to a transfer of a debt instrument that is a 
covered security on a transfer statement. Section 1.6045A-1T(f) 
requires a broker to provide certain additional information on the 
transfer statement. Section 1.6045A-1T(f) applies to a transfer that 
occurs on or after June 30, 2015. After the publication of the 
temporary regulations, the Treasury Department and the IRS received 
comments requesting that the applicability date of the regulations be 
delayed until January 1, 2016. In response to these comments, this 
document amends the applicability
