IRS Proposes Eliminating De Minimis Partner Rule

The IRS released due regulations on Oct 24 that, if finalized, would mislay a de minimis partner order in Regs. Sec. 1.704-1(b)(2)(iii)(e) (REG-109564-10).

Sec. 704(b) allows a partnership to make special allocations as prolonged as they have estimable mercantile effect. In 2008, a IRS released final regulations underneath Sec. 704(b) that yield manners for contrast either an allocation’s mercantile outcome is estimable within a definition of Sec. 704(b) where partners are lookthrough entities or members of a combined organisation (T.D. 9398).

The 2008 regulations generally yield a lookthrough order for contrast an allocation’s substantiality. In last a after-tax mercantile advantage or wreckage of a partnership allocation to any partner that is a lookthrough entity, a lookthrough order takes into comment a taxation consequences ensuing from a communication of a allocation with a taxation attributes of any owners of a lookthrough entity. A identical order relates to partners that are members of a combined group.

The de minimis partner order provides that, for functions of requesting a substantiality rules, a taxation attributes of de minimis partners need not be taken into account. Regs. Sec. 1.704-1(b)(2)(iii)(e) defines a de minimis partner as “any partner, including a look-through entity that owns, directly or indirectly, reduction than 10 percent of a collateral and increase of a partnership, and who is allocated reduction than 10 percent of any partnership object of income, gain, loss, deduction, and credit.”

The vigilant of a de minimis partner order was to concede partnerships to equivocate a complexity of contrast a substantiality of considerate allocations to partners owning really tiny interests in a partnership.

However, a order has had a unintended outcome of permitting partnerships to wholly equivocate a focus of a substantiality manners if a partnership is owned by partners any of whom owns reduction than 10% of a collateral or increase and who are allocated reduction than 10% of any partnership item. To equivocate this result, a due regulations would mislay Regs. Sec. 1.704-1(b)(2)(iii)(e), containing a de minimis partner rule.

The IRS is requesting comments on how to revoke a weight of complying with a estimable mercantile outcome rules, with honour to lookthrough partners, but abating a safeguards a manners provide. Comments are requested within 90 days after a due regulations seem in a Federal Register. They can be sent to a Federal eRulemaking Portal during www.regulations.gov (IRS REG-109564-10).

The due regulations would be effective a date final regulations are published in a Federal Register.
