Revised Publication of Part 275. The revised publication of Part 275 incor- porates the amendments made, and new material added, by Treasury Decision 6424, effective January 1, 1960. This Treasury Decision implemented the Inter- nal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended by the Excise Tax Technical Changes Act of 1958 (Public Law 85-859), and made certain editorial, clarifying, and confor- ming changes in the regulations. Changes of a substantive nature made by Treasury Decision 6424 were explained in Industry Circular No. 59-57, dated November 16, 1959.

Availability of Revised Publication for Purchase. The revised publication of Part 275, designated "IRS Publication No. 217 (Rev. Jan. 1960)," at the price of 15 cents each, is available for purchase from the Superintendent of Docu- ments. The rules of his office require that remittance be made in advance of shipment of publications, either by coupons (sold in sets of 20 for $1) or by check or money order payable to the Superintendent of Documents.

Inquiries. Inquiries concerning purchase of the revised publication should be addressed to the Superintendent of Documents, Government Printing Office, Washington 25, D. C.
