Capital Gains Exception To The House's "General Utilities" Repeal: Further Indigestions From Overly Processed "Corn Products", John W. Lee Mar 1986

Capital Gains Exception To The House's "General Utilities" Repeal: Further Indigestions From Overly Processed "Corn Products", John W. Lee

Faculty Publications

In this article, Lee first describes the mechanics and tax effects of cost basis corporate acquisitions and analyzes why current tax rules favor such acquisitions over carryover basis acquisition (e .g., tax-free mergers); then he describes the House's proposed repeal in HR 3838 of the General Utilities doctrine in current sections 336-338, focusing on the continued exemption for long-term capital gains of a closely held active business corporation. This sets the stage for analysis of the Corn Products doctrine, which under an "integral asset" reading would deny the exemption to most appreciated operating assets, surely not the intent of ...

Taxation Of Natural Resources: Are Provisions Applying To The Domestic Natural Resources Industry Also Applicable To Deep Seabed Mining?, Jozef Leysen Jan 1986

Taxation Of Natural Resources: Are Provisions Applying To The Domestic Natural Resources Industry Also Applicable To Deep Seabed Mining?, Jozef Leysen

LLM Theses and Essays

Deep seabed mining may diminish American dependence on foreign sources of minerals. It is thus in the interest of the United States (and other mineral importing countries) to encourage this highly risky industry and to provide for favorable legal conditions in general and for favorable tax conditions in particular. This thesis examines whether United States law on the taxation of natural resources applies to deep seabed mining.

Taxation Of The Disposition Of Partnership Issues: Time To Repeal I.R.C. Section 736, John A. Lynch Jr. Jan 1986

Taxation Of The Disposition Of Partnership Issues: Time To Repeal I.R.C. Section 736, John A. Lynch Jr.

All Faculty Scholarship

As part of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954 Congress enacted section 736. This section specifies the tax treatment of the various types of payments that a partnership may make to a withdrawing partner. It introduced the concept of a liquidation of a partnership interest by the partnership itself, as opposed to the sale of that interest to an outsider or to the continuing partners. In some instances it provides tax consequences for continuing and withdrawing partners which are different from those attendant to a sale. It was designed to make the law concerning disposition of partnership interests simpler and ...


The Character Of A Partner's Distributive Share Under The "Substantial Economic Effect" Regulation, Alan Gunn Jan 1986

The Character Of A Partner's Distributive Share Under The "Substantial Economic Effect" Regulation, Alan Gunn

Journal Articles

Partnership income and deductions are allocated according to the amount and the character of each partner's distributive share. This article examines the ways in which the section 704(b) regulations apply the "substantial economic effect" test to character allocations. It argues that it is important to distinguish allocations of character from allocations of amounts to understand these regulations. This is because tests that the regulations apply to character issues have to do with source-measurement correspondence and proration, while amounts are determined according to economic effect in the capital account sense. Although the regulations' rules for character allocations purport to ...


The Parenting Tax Penalty: A Framework For Income Tax Reform, Charles R.T. O'Kelley Jan 1986

The Parenting Tax Penalty: A Framework For Income Tax Reform, Charles R.T. O'Kelley

Scholarly Works

Part I considers the proper tax treatment of out-of-pocket parenting expenses such as the costs incurred in providing food, clothing, shelter, and other goods and services to children for their consumption. Part I first characterizes the principal design alternatives to the present flat dependency deduction. It then examines the dominant accretion definition of income and concludes that the current flat dependency deduction is more consistent with the accretion concept and our actual governing beliefs than is any of the alternatives advocated by its critics.

Part II considers the tax relevance of imputed income from self-performed services. It explains (1) how ...
