WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service yesterday proposed a drastic overhaul and simplification of its current arbitrage rules that would give bond issuers an unexpected new safe harbor from rebate requirements.

The 178-page set of proposed rules, FI-36-92, the text of which is about one-third the size of the existing regulations, is now available at the IRS and will be published in the Federal Register tomorrow.
