The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (collectively, the agencies) are adopting a final rule (final rule) to simplify certain aspects of the capital rule. The final rule is responsive to the agencies' March 2017 report to Congress pursuant to the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996, in which the agencies committed to meaningfully reduce regulatory burden, especially on community banking organizations. The key elements of the final rule apply solely to banking organizations that are not subject to the advanced approaches capital rule (non- advanced approaches banking organizations). Under the final rule, non- advanced approaches banking organizations will be subject to simpler regulatory capital requirements for mortgage servicing assets, certain deferred tax assets arising from temporary differences, and investments in the capital of unconsolidated financial institutions than those currently applied. The final rule also simplifies, for non-advanced approaches banking organizations, the calculation for the amount of capital issued by a consolidated subsidiary of a banking organization and held by third parties (sometimes referred to as a minority interest) that is includable in regulatory capital. In addition, the final rule makes technical amendments to, and clarifies certain aspects of, the agencies' capital rule for both non-advanced approaches banking organizations and advanced approaches banking organizations (technical amendments). Revisions to the definition of high-volatility commercial real estate exposure in the agencies' capital rule are being addressed in a separate rulemaking.

Guidance on Passive Foreign Investment Companies
Document Number: 2019-12030
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-11
Agency: Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document contains proposed regulations under sections 1291, 1297, and 1298 of the Internal Revenue Code (``Code'') regarding the determination of ownership in a passive foreign investment company within the meaning of section 1297(a) (``PFIC'') and the treatment of certain income received or accrued by a foreign corporation and assets held by a foreign corporation for purposes of section 1297. The regulations provide guidance regarding when a foreign corporation is a qualifying insurance corporation (``QIC'') under section 1297(f) of the Code and the amounts of income and assets that a QIC excludes from passive income and assets pursuant to section 1297(b)(2)(B) (``PFIC insurance exception'') for purposes of section 1297(a). The regulations also clarify the application and scope of certain rules that determine whether a United States person that directly or indirectly holds stock in a PFIC is treated as a shareholder of the PFIC, and whether a foreign corporation is a PFIC. The regulations affect United States persons with direct or indirect ownership interests in certain foreign corporations.
