OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) completed its review of proposed regulations concerning consolidated net operating losses (NOLs).
The 2017 tax law—Pub. L. No. 115-97, the law that is often referred to as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (TCJA)—revised the rules for NOL deductions.
Treasury regulations that are identified as “major” regulations are subject to review by OMB’s OIRA before being issued, pursuant to Executive Order 13771. The OIRA review of the proposed regulations was completed June 18, 2020:
On the OIRA website, the package of proposed regulations is briefly described as: These proposed regulations implement the amendments to section 172 made by Pub. L. 115-97, section 13302 with respect to affiliated groups of corporations that file consolidated returns.
Now that OIRA review has been completed, Treasury and the IRS can be expected to release these proposed regulations for publication in the Federal Register—the exact date of publication not being known.
