The article presents information about the Circular 230 changes in the U.S. The National Association of Higher Educational Facilities Authorities and the National Council of Health Facilities Authorities yesterday attacked the U.S. Department of the Treasury and Internal Revenue Service (IRS) proposals to amend Circular 230, saying the changes would increase bond costs and compromise the quality of bond opinions. The associations objected to Treasury and IRS guidelines that would for the first time set standards for bond counsel writing tax exempt bond opinions.
