NOTE 1: Advisory Opinions marked "draft" are staff drafts and are not the position of the Department.
NOTE 2: A Temporary Revenue Ruling or Temporary Revenue Procedure is issued to provide immediate guidance due to time constraints and emerging issues. It is temporary and is binding on Department employees only until superseded or modified by a change in statute, regulation, court decision, or advisory opinion.
NOTE 3: Advisory Opinions approved by the Director are binding on Department employees; they are not binding on the public. They are general statements of position that provide guidance to the public and Department employees; they are not agency regulations and do not prescribe rules. Advisory opinions remain in effect unless superseded or modified by a change in statute, regulation, court decision, or advisory opinion. An Information Letter is used to announce general information. It has no precedential value, and is not binding on the public, the Department, or its employees.
