Abstract: Section 148 was enacted to minimize the arbitrage benefits from investing gross proceeds of tax-exempt bonds in higher yielding investments and to remove the arbitrage incentives to issue more bonds, to issue bonds earlier, or to leave bonds outstanding longer than is otherwise reasonably necessary to accomplish the governmental purposes for which the bonds were issued. To accomplish these purposes, section 148 restricts the direct and indirect investment of bond proceeds in higher yielding investments and requires that certain earnings on higher yielding investments be rebated to the United States. Violation of these provisions causes the bonds in the issue to become arbitrage bonds, the interest on which is not excludable from the gross income of the owners under section 103(a). The regulations in §§ 1.148–1 through 1.148–11 apply in a manner consistent with these purposes. Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code requires issuers of tax-exempt bonds to rebate certain arbitrage profits earned on non-purpose investments acquired with the bond proceeds. Issuers are required to file a Form 8038– T and remit the rebate. Issuers are also required to keep records of certain interest rate hedges so that the hedges are taken into account in determining arbitrage profits. The scope of interest rate hedging transactions covered by the arbitrage regulations was broadened by requiring that hedges entered into prior to the sale date of the bonds are covered as well.

    Title: Arbitrage Bond Restrictions under section 148.
    Abstract: Section 148 was enacted to minimize the arbitrage 
benefits from investing gross proceeds of tax-exempt bonds in higher 
yielding investments and to remove the arbitrage incentives to issue 
more bonds, to issue bonds earlier, or to leave bonds outstanding 
longer than is otherwise reasonably necessary to accomplish the 
governmental purposes for which the bonds were issued. To accomplish 
these purposes, section 148 restricts the direct and indirect 
investment of bond proceeds in higher yielding investments and requires 
that certain earnings on higher yielding investments be rebated to the 
United States. Violation of these provisions causes the bonds in the 
issue to become arbitrage bonds, the interest on which is not 
excludable from the gross income of the owners under section 103(a). 
The regulations in Sec. Sec.  1.148-1 through 1.148-11 apply in a 
manner consistent with these purposes.
    Section 148 of the Internal Revenue Code requires issuers of tax-
exempt bonds to rebate certain arbitrage profits earned on non-purpose 
investments acquired with the bond proceeds. Issuers are required to 
file a Form 8038-T and remit the rebate. Issuers are also required to 
keep records of certain interest rate hedges so that the hedges are 
taken into account in determining arbitrage profits. The scope of 
interest rate hedging transactions covered by the arbitrage regulations 
was broadened by requiring that hedges entered into prior to the sale 
date of the bonds are covered as well.
