2007 Notices

A "Notice" is a public pronouncement that may contain guidance that involves substantive interpretations of the Code or other provisions of law. For example, "notices" can be used to relate what regulations will say in situations where the regulations may not be published in the immediate future.

Under Revenue Ruling 90-91, "for purposes of applying the substantial understatement portion of the accuracy-related penalty, ...all notices and announcements issued by the Service and published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin are considered authority and may be relied upon to the same extent as a revenue ruling or revenue procedure."
