Proposed regulations under section 269B of the Code generally treat a stapled foreign corporation as a domestic corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, unless the stapled foreign corporation and the corresponding domestic stapled corporation are foreign-owned. Under the regulations, while a stapled foreign corporation is not an includible corporation under section 1504(b) for most purposes, it may be an includible corporation for purposes of regulations sections 1.904(i)-1 and 1.861-11T(d)(6). They also provide that a conversion of a domestic corporation to a foreign corporation (or vice versa) as a result of section 269B is treated as an F reorganization; limit the application of treaty benefits to stapled foreign corporations; provide special collection procedures for tax liabilities of stapled foreign corporations; address issues involving multiple classes of stock in determining whether a foreign corporation is a stapled foreign corporation; and provide the Commissioner with authority to disregard certain stapled stock structures involving related parties. A public hearing is scheduled for December 15, 2004.
