Publicly Traded Partnerships

A publicly traded partnership is any partnership an interest in which is regularly traded on an established securities market regardless of the number of its partners. This does not include a publicly traded partnership treated as a corporation under section 7704 of the Internal Revenue Code.

A publicly traded partnership that has effectively connected income, gain, or loss must pay withholding tax on any distributions of that income made to its foreign partners. In this situation, a publicly traded partnership must use Form 1042, Annual Withholding Tax Return for U.S. Source Income of Foreign Persons, and Form 1042-S, Foreign Person's U.S. Source Income Subject to Withholding, (Income Code 27) to report withholding from distributions. The rate of withholding is 35%. This rate is subject to future tax law changes.

For more information about the withholding requirements for publicly traded partnerships, refer to Rules Applicable to Publicly Traded Partnerships and Helpful Hints for Partnerships, as well as Revenue Procedure 92-66.
