Internal Revenue Service November 10, 2016 – Federal Register Recent Federal Regulation Documents

Removal of the 36-Month Non-Payment Testing Period Rule
Document Number: 2016-27160
Type: Rule
Date: 2016-11-10
Agency: Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
This document contains final regulations that remove the rule that a deemed discharge of indebtedness for which a Form 1099-C, ``Cancellation of Debt,'' must be filed occurs at the expiration of a 36-month non-payment testing period. The Treasury Department and the IRS are concerned that the rule creates confusion for taxpayers and does not increase tax compliance by debtors or provide the IRS with valuable third-party information that may be used to ensure taxpayer compliance. The final regulations affect certain financial institutions and governmental entities.
