Background

On April 8, 2016, the Department of the Treasury (Treasury Department) and the IRS published in the Federal Register (81 FR 20588) proposed regulations (REG-135734-14), including in §§ 1.7874-7 and 1.7874-10, that address certain transactions that are structured to avoid the purposes of section 7874 of the Code. The regulations were proposed by cross-reference to temporary regulations (TD 9761) in the same issue of the Federal Register (81 FR 20858). In the Rules and Regulations section of this issue of the Federal Register, the Treasury Department and the IRS are amending certain aspects of the temporary regulations in §§ 1.7874-7T and 1.7874-10T. Accordingly, the Treasury Department and the IRS are issuing a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Proposed Rules section of this issue of the Federal Register that proposes rules in §§ 1.7874-7 and 1.7874-10 by cross-reference to the amended temporary regulations. This document withdraws the previously proposed regulations that are replaced by the notice of proposed rulemaking in the Proposed Rules section of this issue of the Federal Register.
