Redacted Private Letters

Redacted Private Letter Rulings (Redacted PLR) are a type of declaratory ruling that is written to provide guidance to a specific taxpayer at the taxpayer’s request. Although Private Letter Rulings (PLR) formally apply to only the taxpayers to whom the letters are addressed, the department recognizes that the information in such rulings might be useful as a guide to how the department might apply the law to other situations of facts identical or essentially similar to those described in the PLR. The Private Letter Ruling is “redacted” – all taxpayer identifying information has been removed and any other measures needed to protect taxpayer confidentiality.
