IRS Issues Guidance on Implementation of Superfund Tax

Dec 15, 2021

The IRS has issued guidance on implementation of the Superfund Tax which is reinstated effective July 1, 2022. Notice 2021-66 (see link below to PDF), provides information on the initial list of taxable substances under IRC Section 4672(a), registration requirements to claim certain exemptions and procedural rules regarding reporting the tax. Notice 2021-66 also suspends Notice 89-61 which set down the procedure for taxpayers to request that certain substances be added or removed from the list of taxable substances.

Under IRC Section 4661, a per ton tax is imposed on all chemicals listed in that section which are sold by the manufacturer, producer or importer of such chemicals. Under IRC Section 4671, there is a tax on the sale or use of imported “taxable substances” which have not previously been taxed under either IRC Section 4611 or 4661. For the purposes of IRC Section 4671, there is a list of taxable substances in Section 4672(a)(3) as well as a supplementary list provided by the IRS. Notice 2021-66 contains the supplementary list.

Under IRC Section 4662, there are certain exemptions to the chemical tax in IRC Section 4611 which require taxpayers to obtain a “G” registration on IRS Form 637. These include an exemption from the tax for: (1) organic taxable chemicals while it is part of an intermediate hydrocarbon stream containing one or more taxable chemicals; (2) inventory exchanges or taxable chemicals. The registration requirements are only met if both parties in the transaction are properly registered and the receiving party has notified the manufacturer, producer or importer of its registration number. Activity Letter “G” is currently suspended and the Form 637 does not include it. Notice 2021-66 advises taxpayers to write in Activity Letter “G” and provide enumerated information until a revised Form 637 is released.

With regards to implementation of the Superfund Tax, Notice 2021-66 states that it should be remitted in accordance with the rules for excise taxes and reported on Form 6627 (to be revised) attached to Form 720.

Finally, Notice 2021-66 seeks input from taxpayers on whether any additional clarification or guidance is required. Comments should be submitted in writing no later than January 28, 2022.
