Background

On September 10, 2003, the Treasury Department and the IRS published in the Federal Register (68 FR 53448, REG-146893-02 and REG-115037-00, 2003-2 C.B. 967) proposed regulations relating to the treatment of controlled services transactions and the allocation of income from intangible property, in particular with respect to contributions by a controlled party to the value of intangible property owned by another controlled party. On August 4, 2006, the Treasury Department and the IRS published in the Federal Register (71 FR 44466, T.D. 9278, 2006-2 C.B. 256; REG-146893-02, REG-115037-00, and REG-138603-03, 2006-2 C.B. 317) temporary regulations relating to the treatment of controlled services transactions, the allocation of income from intangible property, and stewardship expenses under Treas. Reg. §1.861-8(e)(4). A notice of proposed rulemaking cross-referencing the temporary regulations was published in the Federal Register on the same day (REG-146893-02; REG-115037-00; REG-138603-03, 2006-2 C.B. 317 [71 FR 44247]). Written comments responding to the notice of proposed rulemaking were received, and a public hearing was held on October 27, 2006. That notice of proposed rulemaking superseded the proposed regulations published in the Federal Register on September 10, 2003.

On August 4, 2009, the Treasury Department and the IRS published in the Federal Register (74 FR 38830, T.D. 9456, 2009-2 C.B. 188) final regulations that are generally consistent with the proposed regulations that were published on August 4, 2006, in the Federal Register (REG-146893-02; REG-115037-00; REG-138603-03, 2006-2 C.B. 317 [71 FR 44247]), and removed the corresponding temporary regulations.

Withdrawal of a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking

Accordingly, under the authority of 26 U.S.C. 7805, the notice of proposed rulemaking (REG-146893-02 and REG-115037-00) published in the Federal Register on September 10, 2003 (68 FR 53448) is withdrawn.

Steven T. Miller,
