Title: Domestic Reinvestment Plans and Other Guidance under Section 965.

Description: The document provides guidance under new section 965 enacted by the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004 (P. L. 108-357). In general, and subject to limitations and conditions, section 965(a) provides that a corporation that is a U.S. shareholder of a controlled foreign corporation (CFC) may elect, for one taxable year, an 85 percent dividend received deduction (DRD) with respect to certain cash dividends it receives from its CFCs. Section 965(f) provides that taxpayers may elect the application of section 965 for either the taxpayer's last taxable year which begins before October 22, 2004, or the taxpayer's first taxable year which begins during the one-year period beginning on October 22, 2004. In general, a taxpayer elects to apply section 965 to a taxable year by filing Form 8895 with its timely-filed tax return (including extensions) for such tax year. If, however, a taxpayer files its tax return for the taxable year to which the taxpayer intends to election section 965 to apply prior to the issuance of Form 8895, the election must be made on a statement that is attached to its timely-filed tax return (including extensions) for such taxable year. In addition, because the taxpayer must establish to the satisfaction of the Commissioner that it has satisfied the conditions to take the DRD, the taxpayer is required under this guidance to report specified information and provide specified documentation.
