SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On September 26, 2006, the Department of the Treasury and the IRS published in the Federal Register proposed regulations (71 FR 56072; REG–140379–02, REG–142599–02) (the Proposed Regulations) that would amend certain regulations under sections 141 and 145. The Proposed Regulations include, among other provisions, certain general definitions for purposes of the private business tests under section 141 and rules regarding the treatment of certain partnerships for purposes of the modified private business tests and the ownership test under section 145. This document withdraws these general definitions and the provision relating to the treatment of partnerships for purposes of section 145, because these concepts either are unnecessary or are otherwise addressed as a result of other revisions to the remaining portions of the Proposed Regulations that are adopted as final regulations published elsewhere in this edition of the Internal Revenue Bulletin.
