Final, temporary, and proposed regulations under section 461 of the Code clarify that the transfer of a taxpayer's note or promise to provide property or services in the future is not a transfer for the satisfaction of a contested liability under section 461(f). A transfer of a taxpayer's stock or the stock or note of a related party also is not a transfer for the satisfaction of a contested liability under section 461(f). The temporary regulations further provide that, in general, economic performance does not occur when a taxpayer transfers money or other property to a trust, escrow account, or court to provide for the satisfaction of a contested workers compensation, tort, or other payment liability. A public hearing on the proposed regulations is scheduled for March 23, 2004.
