As of January 5, 2021, a notice for public comment on the forms has been posted to the Federal Register, Administrative Subpoena and Notice of Lien on page 307, Volume 86, Number 2 Visit disclaimer page .

There are no revisions to the forms. The reauthorization of the forms provides the opportunity to consider revisions and provide input.

Consideration will be given to comments received by March 6, 2021.
