From: Nicholas Kusnetz

To Whom It May Concern:

Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

Copies of all Form 8933 submitted in 2019.

A blank copy of the current year form is available here, for reference: https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/f8933.pdf

Because the above search involves a discrete number of records filed during only one year, it should hopefully constitute a simple electronic search.

If you decide to withhold an exempt portion of any record, please release all other segregable parts. If you withhold any record or portion of a record, please specify which statutory exemptions are claimed for each withholding. Please describe each record withheld and the total number of records withheld.

As a representative of the news media I am only required to pay for the direct cost of duplication after the first 100 pages. Please waive any applicable fees. InsideClimate News is a nonprofit news media organization, and release of the requested information will inform the public and serve the public interest, specifically by illuminating an important tax incentive for a critical technology for reducing carbon dioxide emissions. If there are any search, review, or duplication fees greater than $100, please inform me before you fill the request.

As I am making this request as a journalist and this information is of timely value, I would appreciate your communicating with me by telephone, rather than by email, if you have questions regarding this request. I can be reached at 917-719-0671.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
