Unified Rule for Loss on Subsidiary Stock; Correction, 62203-62204 [E8-24672]

Download as PDF dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with RULES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 203 / Monday, October 20, 2008 / Rules and Regulations is not evidenced by a written instrument. Both the $16,000 advance and the $22,000 advance are open account debt and remain outstanding at those amounts during 2009. There is no net increase under paragraph (c) of this section in year 2009. (ii) At the close of the 2009 taxable year, A’s open account debt does not exceed $25,000. A therefore carries forward to the beginning of the 2010 taxable year the $16,000 as open account debt. (iii) At the close of the 2009 taxable year, B’s open account debt does not exceed $25,000. B therefore carries forward to the beginning of the 2010 taxable year the $22,000 as open account debt. Example 7. Treatment of open account debt. (i) The facts are the same as in Example 6, in addition to which, on December 31, 2009, A’s basis in the open account debt is reduced under paragraph (b) of this section to $8,000. On April 1, 2010, S repays A $4,000 of the open account indebtedness. On September 1, 2010, A advances S an additional $1,000, which is not evidenced by a written instrument. There is no net increase under paragraph (c) of this section in year 2010. (ii) The $4,000 April repayment S makes to A and A’s $1,000 September advance are netted to result in a net repayment of $3,000 for the taxable year on A’s $16,000 open account debt carried forward from 2009. Because there is no net increase in 2010, no basis of indebtedness is restored for the 2010 taxable year, and A realizes $1,500 of income on the $3,000 net repayment at the close of the 2010 taxable year. (iii) At close of the 2010 taxable year, A’s open account debt does not exceed $25,000. The net repayment of $3,000 for the taxable year on A’s $16,000 open account debt carried forward from 2009, leaves A with an open account debt of $13,000 to carry forward as open account debt to the beginning of the 2011 taxable year. Example 8. Treatment of shareholder indebtedness not evidenced by a written instrument which exceeds $25,000. (i) The facts are the same as in Example 7, in addition to which, on February 1, 2011, S repays $5,000 of the open account debt and on March 1, 2011, A advances S $20,000, which is not evidenced by a written instrument. (ii) At the close of the 2010 taxable year, A has an open account debt of $13,000 to carry forward as open account debt to the beginning of the 2011 taxable year. (iii) The 2011 advances and repayments are netted to result in a net advance of $15,000 on A’s $13,000 open account debt carried forward from 2010, increasing A’s open account debt to $28,000 as of the close of the 2011 taxable year. Because A’s open account debt exceeds $25,000, for any subsequent taxable year the $28,000 indebtedness will be treated in the same manner as indebtedness evidenced by a separate written instrument for the purposes of this section. Because there is no net increase in 2011, no basis of indebtedness is restored for the 2011 taxable year. Par. 3. Section 1.1367–3 is revised to read as follows: ■ VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:13 Oct 17, 2008 Jkt 217001 § 1.1367–3 Effective/Applicability date. Section 1.1367–2(a), (c)(2), (d)(2), and (e) Example 6, Example 7, and Example 8 apply to any shareholder advances to the S corporation made on or after October 20, 2008 and repayments on those advances by the S corporation. The rules that apply with respect to shareholder advances to the S corporation made before October 20, 2008, are contained in § 1.1367–3 in effect prior to October 20, 2008. (See 26 CFR part 1 revised as of April 1, 2007.) Shareholders have the option to apply these rules to shareholder advances to the S corporation made before October 20, 2008, and repayments on those advances by the S corporation.
