Turbotax 2008 free edition Internal Revenue Bulletin:  2009-36  September 8, 2009  Rev. Turbotax 2008 free edition Proc. Turbotax 2008 free edition 2009-37 Table of Contents SECTION 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition PURPOSE SECTION 2. Turbotax 2008 free edition BACKGROUND SECTION 3. Turbotax 2008 free edition SCOPE SECTION 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition ELECTION PROCEDURES SECTION 5. Turbotax 2008 free edition REQUIRED INFORMATION STATEMENT SECTION 6. Turbotax 2008 free edition EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 7. Turbotax 2008 free edition TRANSITION RULE SECTION 8. Turbotax 2008 free edition PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition PURPOSE . Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition This revenue procedure describes the time and manner of providing this additional information. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition Taxpayers should be aware that these regulations may be retroactive. Turbotax 2008 free edition See § 7805(b)(2). Turbotax 2008 free edition This revenue procedure may be modified to provide procedures consistent with additional guidance. Turbotax 2008 free edition SECTION 2. Turbotax 2008 free edition BACKGROUND . Turbotax 2008 free edition 01 Section 108(i), Generally. Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 108(i) was added to the Code by § 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Pub. Turbotax 2008 free edition L. Turbotax 2008 free edition No. Turbotax 2008 free edition 111-5, 123 Stat. Turbotax 2008 free edition 338. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 1273-1(d) of the Income Tax Regulations. Turbotax 2008 free edition The OID deferral rule in § 108(i)(2) applies at the entity level for a pass-through entity. Turbotax 2008 free edition For example, a partnership (and therefore its partners) may not deduct currently the OID described in § 108(i)(2)(A)(i). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition See § 108(i)(5)(D). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 108(i)(5)(D)(ii). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 02 Applicable Debt Instrument. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 108(i)(3)(B). Turbotax 2008 free edition For purposes of § 108(i), in the case of an intercompany obligation (as defined in § 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 1502-13(g)(5). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 03 Reacquisition. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition See § 108(i)(4)(B). Turbotax 2008 free edition The term “acquisition” also includes an indirect acquisition within the meaning of § 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition 108-2(c) if a direct acquisition of the debt instrument would qualify for an election under § 108(i). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 04 General Requirements for the Section 108(i) Election. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition (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. Turbotax 2008 free edition ) The statement must include the amount of income to which § 108(i)(1) applies and other information the Service may prescribe. Turbotax 2008 free edition Once made, a § 108(i) election is irrevocable and, except as provided in section 7 of this revenue procedure, may not be modified. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 05 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Pass-through Entities. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 06 Additional Information on Subsequent Years’ Returns. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 07 Exclusivity. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 08 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on Partnership Indebtedness. Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 704-1(b)(2)(iii). Turbotax 2008 free edition Each partner’s share of this COD income is the partner’s COD income amount (“COD income amount”). Turbotax 2008 free edition The partner’s COD income amount that is deferred under § 108(i) is the partner’s deferred amount (“deferred amount”). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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”). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 09 Partner’s Deferred § 752 Amount. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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”). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition See Rev. Turbotax 2008 free edition Rul. Turbotax 2008 free edition 92-97, 1992-2 C. Turbotax 2008 free edition B. Turbotax 2008 free edition 124, and Rev. Turbotax 2008 free edition Rul. Turbotax 2008 free edition 94-4, 1994-1 C. Turbotax 2008 free edition B. Turbotax 2008 free edition 195. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 10 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on S Corporation Indebtedness. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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.

Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition See § 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition 56(g)-1(c)(1). Turbotax 2008 free edition (2) Exceptions for certain special status corporations. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years that the deferred OID deductions are deductible. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 12 Extension of Time to Make Election. Turbotax 2008 free edition Under § 301. Turbotax 2008 free edition 9100-1 of the Procedure and Administration Regulations, the Service may grant an extension of time to make a regulatory election. Turbotax 2008 free edition An election is a regulatory election if the due date is prescribed by regulation or other published guidance of general applicability. Turbotax 2008 free edition Section 301. Turbotax 2008 free edition 9100-2(a) provides an automatic 12-month extension from the due date for making certain regulatory elections. Turbotax 2008 free edition SECTION 3. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition SECTION 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition ELECTION PROCEDURES . Turbotax 2008 free edition 01 In General. Turbotax 2008 free edition (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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 07, 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 08, 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 09, or 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 10 of this revenue procedure. Turbotax 2008 free edition (2) The Service grants an automatic extension of 12 months from the due date prescribed in section 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 01(1)(a) of this revenue procedure for making the § 108(i) election. Turbotax 2008 free edition The rules that apply to an automatic extension under § 301. Turbotax 2008 free edition 9100-2(a) apply to this automatic extension. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 02 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Members of Consolidated Groups. Turbotax 2008 free edition The common parent of a consolidated group makes the § 108(i) election on behalf of all members of the group. Turbotax 2008 free edition See § 1. Turbotax 2008 free edition 1502-77(a). Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 03 Aggregation Rule. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition A pass-through entity may not treat two or more applicable debt instruments as one applicable debt instrument under this section 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition . Turbotax 2008 free edition 04 Partial Elections. Turbotax 2008 free edition (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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition (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). Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition (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. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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). Turbotax 2008 free edition A partner may exclude from income the partner’s included amount under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. Turbotax 2008 free edition The provisions of this section 4. Turbotax 2008 free edition 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. Turbotax 2008 free edition .
