The U.S. Treasury Department and IRS on December 2, 2019, issued versions of these regulations in advance of their release to the Federal Register.

  • The final regulations finalize regulations that were proposed in November 2018 relating to sections 78, 864, 901, 904, and 960, as amended by the 2017 U.S. tax law (Pub. L. No. 115-97, enacted December 22, 2017, and often referred to as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” or “TCJA”). 
  • The proposed regulations provide additional guidance relevant to foreign tax credits—including guidance with respect to the allocation and apportionment of research and experimentation and stewardship expenses, foreign tax redeterminations under section 905(c), and the allocation and apportionment of foreign income taxes to categories of income.
