Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 02 This revenue procedure also requires taxpayers making the § 108(i) election to provide additional information on returns beginning with the taxable year following the taxable year for which the taxpayer makes the election. Free tax filing for state and federal This revenue procedure describes the time and manner of providing this additional information. Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 03 The Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department intend to issue additional guidance under § 108(i) that may include regulations addressing matters in this revenue procedure.

Free tax filing for state and federal This revenue procedure may be modified to provide procedures consistent with additional guidance. Free tax filing for state and federal SECTION 2. Free tax filing for state and federal BACKGROUND . Free tax filing for state and federal 01 Section 108(i), Generally. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i) was added to the Code by § 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Pub. Free tax filing for state and federal L. Free tax filing for state and federal No. Free tax filing for state and federal 111-5, 123 Stat. Free tax filing for state and federal 338. Free tax filing for state and federal In general, § 108(i) provides that, at the election of a taxpayer, COD income realized in connection with a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument is includible in gross income ratably over a 5-taxable-year inclusion period, beginning with the taxpayer’s fourth or fifth taxable year following the taxable year of the reacquisition. Free tax filing for state and federal Generally, if a taxpayer makes a § 108(i) election and reacquires (or is treated as reacquiring) the applicable debt instrument generating the COD income for a new debt instrument with original issue discount (“OID”), then interest deductions for this OID also are deferred, as provided in § 108(i)(2). Free tax filing for state and federal The OID deferral rule, however, does not apply if the amount of OID is less than a de minimis amount, as determined under § 1273(a)(3) and § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 1273-1(d) of the Income Tax Regulations. Free tax filing for state and federal The OID deferral rule in § 108(i)(2) applies at the entity level for a pass-through entity. Free tax filing for state and federal For example, a partnership (and therefore its partners) may not deduct currently the OID described in § 108(i)(2)(A)(i). Free tax filing for state and federal A taxpayer must take into account any item of income or deduction deferred under § 108(i), and not previously taken into account, in the taxable year in which certain events occur (such as the liquidation of the taxpayer and upon other events specified in administrative guidance). Free tax filing for state and federal See § 108(i)(5)(D). Free tax filing for state and federal The rule regarding acceleration of deferred COD income and OID deductions also applies in the case of certain dispositions by persons holding ownership interests in pass-through entities. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(5)(D)(ii). Free tax filing for state and federal For purposes of § 108(i), regulated investment companies (as defined in § 851(a)) and real estate investment trusts (as defined in § 856(a)) are not pass-through entities. Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 02 Applicable Debt Instrument. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(3)(A) defines the term “applicable debt instrument” to mean any debt instrument issued by a C corporation or by any other person in connection with the conduct of a trade or business by that person. Free tax filing for state and federal The term “debt instrument” means any bond, debenture, note, certificate, or any other instrument or contractual arrangement constituting indebtedness within the meaning of § 1275(a)(1). Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(3)(B). Free tax filing for state and federal For purposes of § 108(i), in the case of an intercompany obligation (as defined in § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 1502-13(g)(2)(ii)), an applicable debt instrument includes only an instrument for which COD income is realized upon the instrument’s deemed satisfaction under § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 1502-13(g)(5). Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 03 Reacquisition. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(4)(A) defines the term “reacquisition” to mean, with respect to any applicable debt instrument, any acquisition of the debt instrument by the debtor that issued (or is otherwise the obligor under) the debt instrument, or a person related to the debtor under § 108(e)(4). Free tax filing for state and federal The term “acquisition” includes an acquisition of the debt instrument for cash or other property, the exchange of the debt instrument for another debt instrument (including an exchange resulting from a modification of the debt instrument), the exchange of the debt instrument for corporate stock or a partnership interest, the contribution of the debt instrument to capital, and the complete forgiveness of the indebtedness by the holder of the debt instrument. Free tax filing for state and federal See § 108(i)(4)(B). Free tax filing for state and federal The term “acquisition” also includes an indirect acquisition within the meaning of § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 108-2(c) if a direct acquisition of the debt instrument would qualify for an election under § 108(i). Free tax filing for state and federal For example, if a corporation acquires debt of a partnership that the partnership issued in connection with its trade or business, and the partnership and corporation become related within six months of the corporation’s acquisition of the debt, the indirect acquisition is an acquisition for which an election under § 108(i) may be made. Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 04 General Requirements for the Section 108(i) Election. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(5)(B) provides, in general, that a taxpayer makes the § 108(i) election by including a statement that clearly identifies the applicable debt instrument with the return of tax imposed for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the instrument occurs. Free tax filing for state and federal (For purposes of this revenue procedure, a return of tax or income tax return includes an information return, and a taxpayer includes a person that files an information return. Free tax filing for state and federal ) The statement must include the amount of income to which § 108(i)(1) applies and other information the Service may prescribe. Free tax filing for state and federal Once made, a § 108(i) election is irrevocable and, except as provided in section 7 of this revenue procedure, may not be modified. Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 05 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Pass-through Entities. Free tax filing for state and federal In the case of COD income realized by a pass-through entity from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the pass-through entity makes the § 108(i) election. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii). Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 06 Additional Information on Subsequent Years’ Returns. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(7) authorizes the Service to issue guidance necessary or appropriate for applying § 108(i), including requiring reporting the election and other information on returns of tax for subsequent taxable years. Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 07 Exclusivity. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 108(i)(5)(C) provides that if a taxpayer elects to apply § 108(i) to an applicable debt instrument, § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) do not apply to COD income deferred under § 108(i). Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 08 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on Partnership Indebtedness. Free tax filing for state and federal Section 4. Free tax filing for state and federal 04(3) of this revenue procedure describes how a partnership may elect under § 108(i) to defer a portion of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument. Free tax filing for state and federal If a partnership elects to defer all or any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, all of the COD income with respect to that debt instrument, without regard to § 108(i), is allocated to the partners in the partnership immediately before the reacquisition in the manner in which the income would be included in the distributive shares of these partners under § 704 and the regulations thereunder, including § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 704-1(b)(2)(iii). Free tax filing for state and federal Each partner’s share of this COD income is the partner’s COD income amount (“COD income amount”). Free tax filing for state and federal The partner’s COD income amount that is deferred under § 108(i) is the partner’s deferred amount (“deferred amount”). Free tax filing for state and federal The partner’s COD income amount that is not deferred and is included in the partner’s distributive share of partnership income for the taxable year of the partnership in which the reacquisition occurs is the partner’s included amount (“included amount”). Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 09 Partner’s Deferred § 752 Amount. Free tax filing for state and federal A decrease in a partner’s share of a partnership liability resulting from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument that is not treated as a current distribution of money to the partner under § 752 by reason of § 108(i)(6) is the partner’s deferred § 752 amount (“deferred § 752 amount”). Free tax filing for state and federal A partner’s deferred § 752 amount may not exceed the lesser of (i) the partner’s deferred amount or (ii) gain that the partner would recognize in the year of reacquisition under § 731 as a result of the reacquisition absent § 108(i)(6). Free tax filing for state and federal To determine the amount of gain the partner would recognize under clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, the amount of any deemed distribution of money under § 752(b) resulting from the decrease in the partner’s share of a reacquired applicable debt instrument that is treated as an advance or draw of money under § 1. Free tax filing for state and federal 731-1(a)(1)(ii) is determined as if no COD income resulting from the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument is deferred under § 108(i). Free tax filing for state and federal See Rev. Free tax filing for state and federal Rul. Free tax filing for state and federal 92-97, 1992-2 C. Free tax filing for state and federal B. Free tax filing for state and federal 124, and Rev. Free tax filing for state and federal Rul. Free tax filing for state and federal 94-4, 1994-1 C. Free tax filing for state and federal B. Free tax filing for state and federal 195. Free tax filing for state and federal A partner’s deferred § 752 amount is treated as a distribution of money to the partner under § 752 at the same time, and to the extent remaining in the same amount, as the partner recognizes the COD income deferred under § 108(i). Free tax filing for state and federal . Free tax filing for state and federal 10 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on S Corporation Indebtedness.

Free tax filing for state and federal A pass-through entity may not treat two or more applicable debt instruments as one applicable debt instrument under this section 4.

Free tax filing for state and federal (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may make an election for any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of any applicable debt instrument. Free tax filing for state and federal Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the taxpayer may elect under § 108(i)(1) to defer only $40 of the $100 of COD income.

Free tax filing for state and federal Thus, for example, one partner’s deferred amount may be zero while another partner’s deferred amount may equal that partner’s COD income amount (or any portion thereof).
