Public Hearing TEFRA Notices

For certain types of tax-exempt private activity bonds, a public hearing (also known as a TEFRA hearing, after the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982) is required by federal tax regulations as a form of public approval.  The hearing provides a reasonable opportunity for interested individuals to express their views, either orally or in writing, on the proposed issue of bonds, location, and nature of the project to be financed. This notice is designed to inform residents of the approving governmental unit, including residents of the issuing unit and the host governmental unit where a project is to be located, of the proposed bond issue.
