Uncertain Tax Positions - Schedule UTP

Third Year of Uncertain Tax Position Reporting

The IRS is currently reviewing its third year of returns filed with Schedule UTP. Beginning with Tax Year 2010, Schedule UTP was a new schedule that certain corporations  used to report uncertain tax positions. Additionally, with Announcement 2010-76, the IRS expanded its policy of restraint in connection with its decision to require certain corporations to file Schedule UTP. Directives to LB&I personnel have been issued setting forth the IRS’s planned treatment of these UTPs by examiners and other personnel.

Submit your questions, comments, or concerns regarding Schedule UTP to the IRS. Although individual responses will not be provided, the IRS will consider submissions in efforts to improve Schedule UTP.

Information about UTP Education and Outreach Efforts:

LB&I is undertaking an education and outreach effort regarding Schedule UTP. LB&I will mail letters to inform certain taxpayers that a review of their Schedule UTP determined that one or more of the concise descriptions they provided did not meet the requirements set forth in the Schedule UTP instructions. If the taxpayer has a valid Power of Attorney on file with the IRS, the Power of Attorney will also receive a copy of this letter.

While the letter requires no action by taxpayers regarding their Schedule UTP, taxpayers are advised to ensure that on any future filings of a Schedule UTP, the concise descriptions follow the Schedule UTP Instructions. All returns filed with a Schedule UTP will continue to be subject to a review in LB&I.

Taxpayers with questions about the letter or the concise descriptions are being referred to this WEB Site.
