2. A person that properly disclosed the transaction under Announcement 2002C.B. 304, will not pay a penalty on the underpayment attributable to the disclosed transaction.

3. For purposes of this settlement initiative, at the discretion of the Service, a person that received and relied on a written tax opinion with respect to the treatment of the transaction under federal tax law before filing a return affected by the transaction will not pay a penalty on the underpayment attributable to that transaction if2— a. the tax opinion (i) concluded at a confidence level of at least “more likely than not” (a greater than 50% likelihood) that all significant federal tax issues arising out of the transaction would be resolved in the taxpayer’s favor, and (ii) considered all the relevant facts and did not assume any unreasonable facts; and b. the tax advisor (i) was not a person described in section 2, paragraph 1 or 2, (ii) was not referred to the taxpayer by a person described in section 2, paragraph 1 or 2, and (iii) did not have a fee arrangement contingent on the successful sustention of all or part of the intended tax benefit.

4. All other applicable penalties and additions to tax will apply.

F. Statute Extensions. Where the period of limitations on assessment of any applicable tax (e.g., income, excise, and employment taxes) will otherwise expire within 12 months after a person files an Election, the Service will ordinarily request that the person consent to extend the applicable period of limitations. If, after a request by the Service, the person does not consent to extend the applicable period of limitations as requested, the Service will treat that person as having withdrawn from this initiative.

Section 5. Application Process

A. Election.

A person that wants to resolve a transaction through this settlement initiative must send an Election (Form 13750, Election to Participate in Announcement 2005-80 Settlement Initiative, and all required attachments) on or before January 23, 2006, to:

–  –  –

Form 13750, as well as the required schedules and attachments, must be used to elect to participate in this initiative and must be submitted to the address listed above. The The penalty waiver under this paragraph is being provided in the context of this administrative settlement, and does not reflect all relevant facts and circumstances that determine whether a taxpayer reasonably relied in good faith on a tax opinion.

form will be available at http://www.irs.gov. The Service reserves the right not to accept any Election not properly addressed and timely mailed within the meaning of § 7502.

A person who is under examination (or in Appeals), or who is a partner in a TEFRA partnership that is under examination (or in Appeals), must send a copy of the Election to the IRS examiner (or IRS Appeals Officer).

B. Required Information. The Election requests information necessary to process the election and determine the proper tax liabilities. The Service may request additional information and documents relating to the transaction, such as marketing materials and tax opinion letters. All requested information must be submitted under penalties of perjury to the Service within 30 days of the date of mailing of the request for additional information by the Service. The Service may grant an extension for good cause to persons who request additional time within the 30-day period. The Service will treat a person who fails to provide the required information within the applicable time period as having withdrawn from the initiative.

C. Passthrough Entities. If the participant in the transaction was a partnership, subchapter S corporation, or some other pass-through entity, then the person that would be liable for the tax (e.g., the partner or shareholder) who wants to participate in this initiative must submit an Election on his or her own behalf.

D. Closing Agreement and Payment. After receiving all the necessary information, the Service will prepare a closing agreement under § 7121 reflecting the terms of the settlement. The Service will send the closing agreement to the person (or the person’s corporate parent or representative, if appropriate), who must sign and return it to the Service within 30 days of the date of mailing by the Service. The Service may grant an extension for good cause.

A person settling under this initiative must fully pay all taxes, interest, and penalties due under the terms of the settlement when the signed closing agreement is returned to the Service. Any person unable to make full payment at that time must submit complete financial statements and agree to financial arrangements acceptable to the Service before the Service will execute a closing agreement. The Service will not execute a closing agreement under this initiative with anyone unable to reach acceptable financial arrangements.

E. Other Dispute Resolution Procedures. This settlement initiative does not affect conventional Service resolution procedures available to eligible persons that do not settle under this initiative. For eligible persons that forgo resolving eligible transactions under this settlement initiative and take their issues to Appeals, Appeals will carefully consider both the issue merits and the penalty, but such persons should not expect to receive a better offer in Appeals than that offered under this settlement initiative and may in fact receive a less favorable outcome.
