In October of 2016, the Treasury Department issued new Regulations under sections 707 and 752 relating to disguised sales of property and partnership liability allocations. Most significantly, the Regulations (i) severely restrict the ability to use traditional “leveraged partnership transactions,” and (ii) effectively eliminate the use of “bottom-line guarantees” for purposes of allocating partnership liabilities. These Regulations, which have generated a fair amount of controversy, are also subject to change pursuant to a Treasury Department Report on “Identifying and Reducing Tax Regulatory Burdens” sent to President Trump on October 2, 2017. This presentation will assist tax practitioners in understanding what they need to know about these Regulations.
