Recently, the Treasury Department and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) agreed that OMB would review tax regulations before release. The OMB Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs routinely does this type of review for other regulations, but this is new for most tax regulations. The memorandum of agreement stipulates that Treasury will prepare a cost-benefit analysis of any regulation projected to have an annual nonrevenue effect on the economy of $100 million or more. Our panel will discuss how Treasury should do the cost-benefit analyses and the implications of this set of activities.
