The U.S. Treasury Department and the IRS this afternoon released for publication in the Federal Register final regulations (T.D. 9891) concerning transfers of appreciated property by U.S. persons to partnerships with foreign partners related to the transferor.
The final regulations [PDF 464 KB] (77 pages) reflect rules previously provided in temporary regulations and override the rules providing for nonrecognition of gain on a contribution of property to a partnership in exchange for an interest in the partnership, unless the partnership adopts the remedial allocation method and certain other requirements are satisfied.
With these final regulations, regulations proposed in January 2017 are finalized, and corresponding temporary regulations are withdrawn. Read a KPMG report providing initial impressions about the temporary regulations in January 2017: TaxNewsFlash
