The IRS today posted to its website a version of final regulations (T.D. 9934) that coordinate the “extraordinary disposition rule” under section 245A with the “disqualified basis rule” under section 951A—measures concerning the tax treatment of dividends received by U.S. persons and certain controlled foreign corporations (CFCs) pursuant to provisions of the 2017 tax law (Pub. L. No. 115-97) or the law that is often referred to as the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act” (TCJA).
The final regulations also reflect rules under section 6038 regarding certain information reporting requirements.
