On June 6, 2002, a notice of proposed rulemaking was published in the
Federal Register (REG-103829-99, 2002-2 C.B. 59 [67 FR 38913]). A public hearing
was held on February 27, 2003. This notice of proposed rulemaking proposed
amending the definition of “highway vehicle” for purposes of the
Highway Use Tax Regulations (26 CFR part 41), the Manufacturers and Retailers
Excise Tax Regulations (26 CFR part 48), and the Temporary Excise Tax Regulations
Under the Highway Revenue Act of 1982 (Pub. L. 97-424) (26 CFR part 145).
Sections 851 and 852 of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (Pub.
L. 108-357) addressed the issues raised in the proposed regulation. Thus,
the proposed regulation is unnecessary.
