SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Paperwork Reduction Act

These temporary regulations are being issued without prior notice and public procedure pursuant to the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553). For this reason, the collection of information contained in these regulations has been reviewed and, pending receipt and evaluation of public comments, approved by the Office of Management and Budget under control number 1545-2019. Responses to this collection of information are mandatory.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of information displays a valid control number.

For further information concerning this collection of information, and where to submit comments on the collection of information and the accuracy of the estimated burden, and suggestions for reducing this burden, please refer to the preamble to the cross-referencing notice of proposed rulemaking published in this issue of the Bulletin.

Books and records relating to a collection of information must be retained as long as their contents may become material in the administration of any internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and tax return information are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103.

Background

This Treasury Decision amends Treasury regulations under sections 279, 302, 331, 332, 338, 351, 355, 368, 381, 382, 1081, 1221, 1502, 1563, and 6012 of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) that require taxpayers to include a statement on or with their Federal income tax returns. In some cases, these statements are the method by which taxpayers elect (or elect out of) a particular income tax treatment. In other cases, these statements are the method by which taxpayers report that they undertook a particular type of transaction. In both cases, these regulations often require taxpayers to include detailed amounts of information in these statements, or do not clearly specify the required information.

In addition, many of these regulations present impediments that prevent corporate taxpayers from submitting these statements as part of an electronically filed Federal income tax return (e-filing). Some of these regulations, for example, impede e-filing by requiring taxpayers to sign a statement and include it on or with the taxpayer’s income tax return. Others require a taxpayer to include third-party signatures on such statements or require taxpayers to attach documents, or information supplied by a third party.

Explanation of Provisions

1. Reporting Requirements That Were Simplified, Clarified, or Eliminated

A. Regulations for which the reporting requirements were simplified or clarified

Some regulations require a taxpayer to include a statement on or with its return if it undertakes certain types of transactions. In some cases, these regulations require the taxpayer to submit detailed information about the particular transaction with its return. In other cases, the scope of the reporting requirement was unclear. The IRS and Treasury Department believe that it is not useful to require taxpayers to attach all of this information to their returns. Accordingly, these regulations simplify and clarify the reporting requirements under several provisions.

B. Regulations for which the reporting requirements were eliminated

Some regulations require that all shareholders and security holders that receive stock or securities in certain distributions or exchanges file statements providing information about that distribution or exchange. See, e.g., §§1.355-5(b) and 1.368-3(b). The IRS and Treasury Department have determined that for most shareholders and security holders these statements are no longer necessary. Accordingly, these temporary regulations only require that a “significant holder” file such statement. In the case of stock, a significant holder is a holder of stock of a corporation if at the time of the distribution or exchange such holder owns at least: (1) 5% (by vote or value) of the total outstanding stock of such corporation if the stock owned by such holder is publicly traded, or (2) 1% (by vote or value) of the total outstanding stock of such corporation if the stock owned by such holder is not publicly traded. See, e.g., §§1.355-5T(b) and 1.368-3T(b). These regulations use the definition of publicly traded stock found elsewhere in the regulations. See, e.g., §§1.1092(d)-1(b), 1.1273-2(f) and 54.4975-7(b)(1)(iv).

In the case of securities, a significant holder is a holder of securities of a corporation if at the time of the distribution or exchange such holder owns securities with a basis of $1,000,000 or more.

2. Regulations That Present Impediments to E-filing

As described in this preamble in paragraphs 2.A. and 2.B., certain regulations impose reporting requirements that are impediments to e-filing. The IRS and Treasury Department are issuing these temporary regulations to eliminate such impediments without altering the substantive requirements of the current regulations.

A. Statements required to be signed by the taxpayer

Some regulations require a taxpayer to include a statement on or with its return in order to make an election, or notify the IRS that the taxpayer is undertaking a transaction authorized by that provision. In the case of elections, the current regulations often require the taxpayer to sign such statement. In these circumstances, the requirement that the taxpayer sign the statement is an impediment to e-filing and superfluous. By signing the return, a taxpayer is attesting to the validity of the Form 1120 as well as all of the attachments. Accordingly, for these types of statements, the underlying regulations are amended to eliminate the requirement that such statements be signed.

B. Statements required to be signed by both the taxpayer and a third party

Some regulations require that the taxpayer and another person sign a statement, and that the taxpayer include such jointly signed statement on or with its return. In some cases, the taxpayer is required to provide a copy of this statement, or other information, to the other person and that person is required to include such copy or information on or with its return.

These requirements are impediments to e-filing. However, in such cases, the joint signature requirement cannot simply be eliminated because, in the absence of that requirement, the taxpayer and the other person might take inconsistent positions. Therefore, these regulations amend the provisions with a joint signature requirement to require the taxpayer and the other person to include a statement on or with its return indicating that it has entered into an agreement with the other party addressing the substantive matters covered by the statement required under the current regulations. These agreements will contain the same information as the jointly signed statements required by the current regulations. Each party will be required to retain either the original or a copy of this agreement as part of its records. See §1.6001-1(e).

C. Section 1561

Section 1561(a) provides that the component members of a controlled group of corporations are limited to using the amounts of the tax benefit items described therein in the same manner as if they were one corporation. Section 1561(a) generally provides that such amounts shall be divided equally among such members. However, section 1561(a) also provides that if such members adopt an apportionment plan, they are then permitted to allocate such amounts among themselves unequally. Section 1.1561-3(b) provides the mechanism by which such members may consent to an apportionment plan.

Section 1.1561-3(b) presents impediments to e-filing. However, the IRS and Treasury Department have determined that these impediments cannot be eliminated without also addressing certain substantive issues present in these regulations. Addressing these issues is beyond the scope of this project. Therefore, these issues will be addressed in separate guidance that the IRS and Treasury Department expect to publish later this year.

3. Requirement That Taxpayers Provide the Fair Market Value and Basis of Assets or Stock

Certain of these regulations require taxpayers to provide in their reporting statement the fair market value and basis of assets or stock distributed or exchanged in a transaction. The IRS and Treasury Department recognize that, in some cases, a taxpayer may not conveniently be able to provide a precise valuation of property exchanged or distributed in a transaction that is not taxable in the current year. In those cases, for the purposes of these statements, the IRS and Treasury Department will accept a taxpayer’s good faith estimate of such fair market value.

Similarly, the IRS and Treasury Department recognize that there are occasionally situations where a taxpayer may not be able to precisely determine its basis in a taxable year in which that basis would not be relevant to determining the taxpayer’s taxable income. As in the case of fair market value, for purposes of these statements, the IRS and Treasury Department will in these situations accept a taxpayer’s good faith estimate of such basis.

4. Election to Restore Value Under §1.382-8

In the case of a controlled group of corporations, §1.382-8 provides that, for purposes of determining the section 382 limitation, the value of the stock of each component member of the controlled group of which the loss corporation is a component member on the change date must be reduced by the value of the stock of any other component member that such component member directly owns immediately after an ownership change. However, the component member’s value may be increased by the amount of value that such other component member elects to restore.

The IRS and Treasury Department are aware that taxpayers generally elect to restore value from component members that are foreign corporations. The IRS and Treasury Department are also aware that taxpayers occasionally fail to make the election timely and must file a request for relief under §301.9100-1. Therefore, to reduce unnecessary elections and section 9100 requests, §1.382-8T(h)(2) will deem foreign component members to elect to restore full value to other component members under §1.382-8. Nevertheless, should such members not wish to restore the full amount of such value, they may elect not to restore all or part of such value. Further, a foreign component member that has items treated as connected with the conduct of a trade or business in the United States that it takes into account in determining its value under section 382(e)(3) is not subject to this deemed election.

The IRS and Treasury Department request comments regarding the scope and application of this deemed election to restore value.

5. Recordkeeping Requirement

The IRS and Treasury Department emphasize that although the amount of information that a taxpayer is required to include on or with its return has, in most cases, decreased, the taxpayer’s recordkeeping requirement remains unchanged. Certain of these regulations illustrate the type of information taxpayers are recommended to keep in order to substantiate their reporting position.

6. Rev. Proc. 2006-21

Contemporaneously with the issuance of these temporary regulations, the IRS and Treasury Department are releasing Rev. Proc. 2006-21, 2006-24 I.R.B. 1050, to remove e-filing impediments and reduce reporting requirements currently found in Rev. Proc. 89-56, 1989-2 C.B. 643, Rev. Proc. 90-39, 1990-2 C.B. 365, and Rev. Proc. 2002-32, 2002-1 C.B. 959. Each revenue procedure provides a method for consolidated taxpayers to request a specified consent or waiver from the Commissioner without submitting a request for a private letter ruling. In particular, Rev. Proc. 89-56 permits taxpayers to request a consent to use a 52-53 week tax year, Rev. Proc. 90-39 permits taxpayers to request a consent to change the method for allocating tax liability to members for earnings and profits purposes, and Rev. Proc. 2002-32 permits taxpayers to request a waiver of the 60-month limitation on reconsolidation.

7. §1.1502-35

These regulations also include a revision to §1.1502-35 that is not related to electronic filing or reporting requirements. The revision corrects an error in the determination of the time period during which suspended losses are reduced under that section. Specifically, these regulations provide that this time period ends on the day before the first date on which the subsidiary (and any successor) is not a member of the group.

Special Analysis

It has been determined that this Treasury Decision is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. For the applicability of the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6), refer to the Special Analyses section of the preamble to the cross-reference notice of proposed rulemaking published in this issue of the Bulletin. Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Code, these temporary regulations will be submitted to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on their impact on small business.

Adoption of Amendments to the Regulations

Accordingly, 26 CFR parts 1 and 602 are amended as follows:

PART 1—INCOME TAXES

Paragraph 1. The authority citation for part 1 is amended by adding entries in numerical order to read, in part, as follows:

Par. 2. Section 1.279-5 is amended by removing paragraph (h).

Par. 3. Section 1.302-2 is amended by:

1. Redesignating paragraph (b) as paragraph (b)(1).

2. Revising newly designated paragraph (b)(1).

3. Adding paragraphs (b)(2) and (d).

The additions and revisions read as follows:

§1.302-2 Redemptions not taxable as dividends.

* * * * *

(b)(1) The question whether a distribution in redemption of stock of a shareholder is not essentially equivalent to a dividend under section 302(b)(1) depends upon the facts and circumstances of each case. One of the facts to be considered in making this determination is the constructive stock ownership of such shareholder under section 318(a). All distributions in pro rata redemptions of a part of the stock of a corporation generally will be treated as distributions under section 301 if the corporation has only one class of stock outstanding. However, for distributions in partial liquidation, see section 302(e). The redemption of all of one class of stock (except section 306 stock) either at one time or in a series of redemptions generally will be considered as a distribution under section 301 if all classes of stock outstanding at the time of the redemption are held in the same proportion. Distributions in redemption of stock may be treated as distributions under section 301 regardless of the provisions of the stock certificate and regardless of whether all stock being redeemed was acquired by the stockholders from whom the stock was redeemed by purchase or otherwise.

(h) Time and manner of filing election to restore—(1) Statements required

(i) Filing by loss corporation. The election to restore value described in paragraph (c)(2) of this section must be in the form set forth in this paragraph (h)(1)(i). It must be filed by the loss corporation by including a statement on or with its income tax return for the taxable year in which the ownership change occurs (or with an amended return for that year filed on or before the due date (including extensions) of the income tax return of any component member with respect to the taxable year in which the ownership change occurs). The common parent of a consolidated group must make the election on behalf of the group. The election is made in the form of a statement entitled, “STATEMENT PURSUANT TO §1.382-8T(h)(1) TO ELECT TO RESTORE ALL OR PART OF THE VALUE OF [INSERT NAME AND EMPLOYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (IF ANY) OF THE ELECTING MEMBER] TO [INSERT NAME AND EMPLOYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (IF ANY) OF THE CORPORATION TO WHICH VALUE IS RESTORED].” The statement must include the amount of the value being restored and must also indicate that an agreement signed and dated by both parties, as described in paragraph (h)(1)(iii) of this section, has been entered into. Each such party must retain either the original or a copy of this agreement as part of its records. See §1.6001-1(e).

(ii) Filing by electing member. An electing member must include a statement identical to the one described in paragraph (h)(1)(i) of this section on or with its income tax return (or with an amended return for that year filed on or before the due date (including extensions) of the income tax return of any component member with respect to the taxable year in which the ownership change occurs) (if any) for the taxable year which includes the change date in connection with which the election described in paragraph (c)(2) of this section is made. If the electing member is a controlled foreign corporation (within the meaning of section 957), each United States shareholder (within the meaning of section 951(b)) with respect thereto must include this statement on or with its return. It is not necessary for the electing member (or the United States shareholder, as the case may be) to include this statement on or with its return if the loss corporation includes an identical statement on or with the same return for the same election.

(iii) Agreement. Both the electing member and the corporation to which value is restored must sign and date an agreement. The agreement must—

(A) Identify the change date for the loss corporation in connection with which the election is made;

(B) State the value of the electing member’s stock (without regard to any adjustment under paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(3), (c)(4) and (c)(5) of §1.382-8 and paragraph (c)(2) of this section) immediately before the ownership change;

(C) State the amount of any reduction required under paragraph (c)(1) of §1.382-8 with respect to stock of the electing member that is owned directly or indirectly by the corporation to which value is restored;

(E) State whether the value of either component member’s stock was adjusted pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) of §1.382-8.

(2) Special rule for foreign component members—(i) Deemed election to restore full value.

(ii) Election not to restore full value. (A) A loss corporation may elect to reduce the amount of value restored from a foreign component member (the electing foreign component member) to another component member under paragraph (h)(2)(i) of this section in the form set forth in this paragraph (h)(2)(ii). It must be filed by the loss corporation by including a statement on or with its income tax return for the taxable year in which the ownership change occurs (or with an amended return for that year filed on or before the due date (including extensions) of the income tax return of any component member with respect to the taxable year in which the ownership change occurs). The common parent of a consolidated group must make the election on behalf of the group. The election is made in the form of a statement entitled, “STATEMENT PURSUANT TO §1.382-8T(h)(2)(ii) TO ELECT NOT TO RESTORE FULL VALUE OF [INSERT NAME AND EMPLOYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (IF ANY) OF ELECTING FOREIGN COMPONENT MEMBER] TO [INSERT NAME AND EMPLOYER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER (IF ANY) OF THE CORPORATION TO WHICH SUCH VALUE IS NOT TO BE RESTORED].” The statement must include the amount of the value not being restored and must also indicate that an agreement signed and dated by both parties, as described in paragraph (h)(2)(iii) of this section, has been entered into.

If the electing foreign component member is a controlled foreign corporation (within the meaning of section 957), each United States shareholder (within the meaning of section 951(b)) with respect thereto must include this statement on or with its return. It is not necessary for the electing foreign component member (or United States shareholder, as the case may be) to include this statement on or with its return if the loss corporation includes an identical statement on or with the same return for the same election.

(iii) Agreement. Both the electing foreign component member and the corporation to which full value is not restored must sign and date an agreement. The agreement must—

(A) Identify the change date for the loss corporation in connection with which the election is made;

(B) State the value of the electing foreign component member’s stock (without regard to any adjustment under paragraphs (c)(1), (c)(3), (c)(4) and (c)(5) of §1.382-8 and paragraph (c)(2) of this section) immediately before the ownership change;

(C) State the amount of any reduction required under paragraph (c)(1) of §1.382-8 with respect to stock of the electing foreign component member that is owned directly or indirectly by the corporation to which value is not restored;

(D) State the amount of value that the electing foreign component member elects not to restore to the corporation; and

(E) State whether the value of either component member’s stock was adjusted pursuant to paragraph (c)(4) of §1.382-8.
