After considering the one comment letter received in response to the 2015 regulations, today's release adopts as final regulations the rules set forth in the 2015 regulations under section 337(d) (with only minor, non-substantive clarifications in response to the commenter’s request for additional certainty regarding certain collateral effects) and section 732(f) (without any change).
The Treasury Department and the IRS are considering publishing a new notice of proposed rulemaking that would propose more substantive amendments to the final regulations under section 337(d) and to allow for additional public comment with respect to these more substantive proposals in response to the comment letter, to further reflection by the Treasury Department and IRS, and to concerns raised by practitioners.
