Free online taxes Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2009-36  September 8, 2009  Rev. Free online taxes Proc. Free online taxes 2009-37 Table of Contents SECTION 1. Free online taxes PURPOSE SECTION 2. Free online taxes BACKGROUND SECTION 3. Free online taxes SCOPE SECTION 4. Free online taxes ELECTION PROCEDURES SECTION 5. Free online taxes REQUIRED INFORMATION STATEMENT SECTION 6. Free online taxes EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 7. Free online taxes TRANSITION RULE SECTION 8. Free online taxes PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Free online taxes PURPOSE . Free online taxes 01 This revenue procedure provides the exclusive procedures for taxpayers to make an election to defer recognizing discharge of indebtedness income (“COD income”) under § 108(i) of the Internal Revenue Code. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 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 online taxes This revenue procedure describes the time and manner of providing this additional information. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 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 online taxes Taxpayers should be aware that these regulations may be retroactive. Free online taxes See § 7805(b)(2). Free online taxes This revenue procedure may be modified to provide procedures consistent with additional guidance. Free online taxes SECTION 2. Free online taxes BACKGROUND . Free online taxes 01 Section 108(i), Generally. Free online taxes Section 108(i) was added to the Code by § 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Pub. Free online taxes L. Free online taxes No. Free online taxes 111-5, 123 Stat. Free online taxes 338. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes 1273-1(d) of the Income Tax Regulations. Free online taxes The OID deferral rule in § 108(i)(2) applies at the entity level for a pass-through entity. Free online taxes For example, a partnership (and therefore its partners) may not deduct currently the OID described in § 108(i)(2)(A)(i). Free online taxes 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 online taxes See § 108(i)(5)(D). Free online taxes 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 online taxes Section 108(i)(5)(D)(ii). Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 02 Applicable Debt Instrument. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes Section 108(i)(3)(B). Free online taxes For purposes of § 108(i), in the case of an intercompany obligation (as defined in § 1. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 1502-13(g)(5). Free online taxes . Free online taxes 03 Reacquisition. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes See § 108(i)(4)(B). Free online taxes The term “acquisition” also includes an indirect acquisition within the meaning of § 1. Free online taxes 108-2(c) if a direct acquisition of the debt instrument would qualify for an election under § 108(i). Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 04 General Requirements for the Section 108(i) Election. Free online taxes 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 online taxes (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 online taxes ) The statement must include the amount of income to which § 108(i)(1) applies and other information the Service may prescribe. Free online taxes Once made, a § 108(i) election is irrevocable and, except as provided in section 7 of this revenue procedure, may not be modified. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 05 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Pass-through Entities. Free online taxes 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 online taxes Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii). Free online taxes . Free online taxes 06 Additional Information on Subsequent Years’ Returns. Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 07 Exclusivity. Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 08 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on Partnership Indebtedness. Free online taxes Section 4. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes 704-1(b)(2)(iii). Free online taxes Each partner’s share of this COD income is the partner’s COD income amount (“COD income amount”). Free online taxes The partner’s COD income amount that is deferred under § 108(i) is the partner’s deferred amount (“deferred amount”). Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 09 Partner’s Deferred § 752 Amount. Free online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes 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 online taxes See Rev. Free online taxes Rul. Free online taxes 92-97, 1992-2 C. Free online taxes B. Free online taxes 124, and Rev. Free online taxes Rul. Free online taxes 94-4, 1994-1 C. Free online taxes B. Free online taxes 195. Free online taxes 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 online taxes . Free online taxes 10 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on S Corporation Indebtedness. Free online taxes For purposes of § 108(i), an S corporation’s COD income deferred under § 108(i) is shared pro rata only among those shareholders that are shareholders of the S corporation immediately before the reacquisition transaction. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 11 Deferred COD Income, Earnings and Profits, and Alternative Minimum Taxable Income. Free online taxes (1) In general. Free online taxes The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations regarding the computation of a corporation’s earnings and profits with respect to COD income and OID deductions that are deferred under § 108(i). Free online taxes These regulations generally will provide that deferred COD income increases earnings and profits in the taxable year that it is realized and not in the taxable year or years that the deferred COD income is includible in gross income. Free online taxes OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally will decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deduction would be allowed without regard to § 108(i). Free online taxes COD income and OID deductions that are deferred increase or decrease adjusted current earnings under § 56(g)(4) in the taxable year or years that the income or deduction is includible or deductible in determining taxable income. Free online taxes See § 1. Free online taxes 56(g)-1(c)(1). Free online taxes (2) Exceptions for certain special status corporations. Free online taxes The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations providing that in the case of regulated investment companies and real estate investment trusts, COD income deferred under § 108(i) generally increases earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deferred COD income is includible in gross income and not in the year that the deferred COD income is realized. Free online taxes OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years that the deferred OID deductions are deductible. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 12 Extension of Time to Make Election. Free online taxes Under § 301. Free online taxes 9100-1 of the Procedure and Administration Regulations, the Service may grant an extension of time to make a regulatory election. Free online taxes An election is a regulatory election if the due date is prescribed by regulation or other published guidance of general applicability. Free online taxes Section 301. Free online taxes 9100-2(a) provides an automatic 12-month extension from the due date for making certain regulatory elections. Free online taxes SECTION 3. Free online taxes SCOPE This revenue procedure applies to taxpayers that realize COD income from a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument, as provided in § 108(i). Free online taxes SECTION 4. Free online taxes ELECTION PROCEDURES . Free online taxes 01 In General. Free online taxes (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure makes the § 108(i) election by— (a) Attaching a statement meeting the requirements of section 4. Free online taxes 05 of this revenue procedure to the taxpayer’s timely filed (including extensions) original federal income tax return for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument occurs, and (b) If applicable, satisfying the additional requirements of section 4. Free online taxes 07, 4. Free online taxes 08, 4. Free online taxes 09, or 4. Free online taxes 10 of this revenue procedure. Free online taxes (2) The Service grants an automatic extension of 12 months from the due date prescribed in section 4. Free online taxes 01(1)(a) of this revenue procedure for making the § 108(i) election. Free online taxes The rules that apply to an automatic extension under § 301. Free online taxes 9100-2(a) apply to this automatic extension. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 02 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Members of Consolidated Groups. Free online taxes The common parent of a consolidated group makes the § 108(i) election on behalf of all members of the group. Free online taxes See § 1. Free online taxes 1502-77(a). Free online taxes . Free online taxes 03 Aggregation Rule. Free online taxes A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may treat two or more applicable debt instruments that are part of the same issue and that are reacquired during the same taxable year as one applicable debt instrument for purposes of this revenue procedure. Free online taxes A pass-through entity may not treat two or more applicable debt instruments as one applicable debt instrument under this section 4. Free online taxes 03 if the owners and their ownership interests in the pass-through entity immediately prior to the reacquisition of each applicable debt instrument are not identical. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 04 Partial Elections. Free online taxes (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 online taxes 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 online taxes The taxpayer may exclude from income the portion of COD income that the taxpayer does not elect to defer under § 108(i) ($60 in this example) under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. Free online taxes (2) A taxpayer is not required to make an election for the same portion of COD income arising from each applicable debt instrument that it reacquires, but may make an election for different portions of COD income arising from different applicable debt instruments (whether or not part of the same issue). Free online taxes Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument (Instrument A) and $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of a different applicable debt instrument (Instrument B), the taxpayer may elect to defer all or a portion of the COD income associated with Instrument A and none or a different portion of the COD income associated with Instrument B. Free online taxes (3) A partnership that elects to defer less than all of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument may determine, in any manner, the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s deferred amount and the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s included amount. Free online taxes 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). Free online taxes A partner may exclude from income the partner’s included amount under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. Free online taxes The provisions of this section 4. Free online taxes 04(3) apply for purposes of § 108(i) only and are not intended as an interpretation of or a change to existing law under § 704. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 05 Contents of Election Statement. Free online taxes A statement meets the requirements of this section 4. Free online taxes 05 if the statement— (1) Label. Free online taxes States “Section 108(i) Election” across the top. Free online taxes (2) Required information.

Free online taxes . Free online taxes 06 Supplemental information. Free online taxes The statement described in section 4. Free online taxes 05 of this revenue procedure may specify for each applicable debt instrument an amount greater than the amount identified in section 4. Free online taxes 05(2)(e) of this revenue procedure that the taxpayer elects to defer under § 108(i) in the event the Service subsequently concludes that the taxpayer understated the amount of COD income described in section 4. Free online taxes 05(2)(d) of this revenue procedure. Free online taxes This additional amount of COD income the taxpayer elects to defer may be described as the entire additional COD income, or as a percentage of any additional COD income. Free online taxes If the taxpayer is a partnership, the partnership must specify each partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income that would be deferred (the partner’s additional deferred amount), which the partnership may describe for each partner as the partner’s entire share of the partnership’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income. Free online taxes If the taxpayer is an S corporation, the S corporation must specify each shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income that would be deferred, which the S corporation may describe for each shareholder as the shareholder’s entire share of the S corporation’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income. Free online taxes In the case of partnerships and S corporations, the additional COD income and the portion of additional COD income that would be deferred are allocated or determined as provided in sections 2. Free online taxes 08, 2. Free online taxes 10 and, if applicable, 4. Free online taxes 04(3) of this revenue procedure, respectively, as if the additional COD income was realized. Free online taxes . Free online taxes 07 Additional Requirements for Certain Partnerships Making a § 108(i) Election. Free online taxes The rules of this section 4. Free online taxes 07 apply to partnerships other than partnerships described in section 4. Free online taxes 10 of this revenue procedure.
