Jan. 29 — The Internal Revenue Service on Jan. 29 released a private letter ruling on unsubsidized single sum benefits provided by a company's defined benefit and defined contribution plans.
The document numbers assigned by the IRS to its private letter rulings are composed of three groups of numbers: the first four numbers represent the year; the second group of numbers represents the week in which the document was released; the last three numbers indicate its position in the series of rulings issued that week. For example, PLR 201648023 would be the 23rd ruling of the 48th week of 2016.
The IRS cautions that each ruling is directed only to the taxpayer who requested it. Tax code Section 6110(k)(3) provides that a private letter ruling may not be used or cited as precedent.
