The 2018-2019 priority guidance plan [PDF 123 KB] specifically notes that the IRS and Treasury continue to prioritize guidance to implement provisions of the new U.S. tax law (Pub. L. No. 115-97, enacted on December 22, 2017). The plan lists 62 guidance projects relating to the new tax law—of which just under 30 proposed regulations, IRS notices, and other items have already been issued to date.

  • The 2018-2019 priority guidance plan contains a total of 239 guidance projects—of which 45 items have been released as of October 31, 2018.
  • The appendix to the priority guidance plan also lists routine or ministerial guidance that is generally published each year.

In addition, the 2018–2019 priority guidance plan reflects the “deregulatory policies and reforms” described under Executive Order 13789 and Executive Order 13777.

The priority guidance plan may be updated during the plan year to reflect additional items that have become priorities and guidance that is published during the plan year. Comments are requested with respect to items to be included on the plan.
