Inside This Issue


Notice 2021-66 provides guidance under the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), Public Law 117-58, 135 Stat. 429 (November 15, 2021), which reinstates the excise taxes imposed by sections 4661 and 4671 (the Superfund chemical taxes), effective July 1, 2022.​ Section 80201(c)(3) of the IIJA and requires the Treasury Department and IRS to publish an initial list of taxable substances under section 4672(a) not later than January 1, 2022.​ This notice provides that initial list.

The notice also addresses the registration requirements imposed by section 4662(b)(10)(C) and (c)(2)(B) to exempt certain sales and uses of taxable chemicals from tax, and provides the procedural rules that apply to taxpayers subject to the reinstated Superfund chemical taxes.​ In addition, pending further guidance, the notice suspends Notice 89-61, 1989-1 C.B. 717, as modified by Notice 95-39, 1995-1 C.B. 312, which prescribed the former process for certain persons to request that certain substances be added to or removed from the list of taxable substances under section 4672(a)(3) as previously in effect.​ Finally, the notice requests comments on whether any issues related to the reinstated Superfund chemical taxes require clarification or additional guidance.
