WASHINGTON — The Internal Revenue Service is asking issuers of Build America Bonds and tax-credit bonds to weigh in on how much of a burden it is to file two new information returns for the bonds that will be released later this week.

In two separate notices filed Friday, the service notified the public that it was seeking comments on its Forms 8038-B and 8038-TC, which municipal issuers will have to fill out to document their issuance of BABs and tax-credit bonds, respectively. Form 8038-B also will be used by issuers of recovery zone economic development bonds, a “super-BAB” that issuers can sell in certain distressed areas to finance projects.
