Hr block com BACKGROUND SECTION 3. Hr block com SCOPE SECTION 4. Hr block com ELECTION PROCEDURES SECTION 5. Hr block com REQUIRED INFORMATION STATEMENT SECTION 6. Hr block com EFFECTIVE DATE SECTION 7. Hr block com TRANSITION RULE SECTION 8. Hr block com PAPERWORK REDUCTION ACT DRAFTING INFORMATION SECTION 1. Hr block com PURPOSE . Hr block com 01 This revenue procedure provides the exclusive procedures for taxpayers to make an election to defer recognizing discharge of indebtedness income (“COD income”) under § 108(i) of the Internal Revenue Code. Hr block com . Hr block com 02 This revenue procedure also requires taxpayers making the § 108(i) election to provide additional information on returns beginning with the taxable year following the taxable year for which the taxpayer makes the election. Hr block com This revenue procedure describes the time and manner of providing this additional information. Hr block com . Hr block com 03 The Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department intend to issue additional guidance under § 108(i) that may include regulations addressing matters in this revenue procedure. Hr block com Taxpayers should be aware that these regulations may be retroactive. Hr block com See § 7805(b)(2). Hr block com This revenue procedure may be modified to provide procedures consistent with additional guidance. Hr block com SECTION 2. Hr block com BACKGROUND . Hr block com 01 Section 108(i), Generally. Hr block com Section 108(i) was added to the Code by § 1231 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009, Pub. Hr block com L. Hr block com No. Hr block com 111-5, 123 Stat. Hr block com 338. Hr block com In general, § 108(i) provides that, at the election of a taxpayer, COD income realized in connection with a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument is includible in gross income ratably over a 5-taxable-year inclusion period, beginning with the taxpayer’s fourth or fifth taxable year following the taxable year of the reacquisition. Hr block com Generally, if a taxpayer makes a § 108(i) election and reacquires (or is treated as reacquiring) the applicable debt instrument generating the COD income for a new debt instrument with original issue discount (“OID”), then interest deductions for this OID also are deferred, as provided in § 108(i)(2). Hr block com The OID deferral rule, however, does not apply if the amount of OID is less than a de minimis amount, as determined under § 1273(a)(3) and § 1. Hr block com 1273-1(d) of the Income Tax Regulations. Hr block com The OID deferral rule in § 108(i)(2) applies at the entity level for a pass-through entity. Hr block com For example, a partnership (and therefore its partners) may not deduct currently the OID described in § 108(i)(2)(A)(i). Hr block com A taxpayer must take into account any item of income or deduction deferred under § 108(i), and not previously taken into account, in the taxable year in which certain events occur (such as the liquidation of the taxpayer and upon other events specified in administrative guidance). Hr block com See § 108(i)(5)(D). Hr block com The rule regarding acceleration of deferred COD income and OID deductions also applies in the case of certain dispositions by persons holding ownership interests in pass-through entities. Hr block com Section 108(i)(5)(D)(ii). Hr block com For purposes of § 108(i), regulated investment companies (as defined in § 851(a)) and real estate investment trusts (as defined in § 856(a)) are not pass-through entities. Hr block com . Hr block com 02 Applicable Debt Instrument. Hr block com Section 108(i)(3)(A) defines the term “applicable debt instrument” to mean any debt instrument issued by a C corporation or by any other person in connection with the conduct of a trade or business by that person. Hr block com The term “debt instrument” means any bond, debenture, note, certificate, or any other instrument or contractual arrangement constituting indebtedness within the meaning of § 1275(a)(1). Hr block com Section 108(i)(3)(B). Hr block com For purposes of § 108(i), in the case of an intercompany obligation (as defined in § 1. Hr block com 1502-13(g)(2)(ii)), an applicable debt instrument includes only an instrument for which COD income is realized upon the instrument’s deemed satisfaction under § 1. Hr block com 1502-13(g)(5). Hr block com . Hr block com 03 Reacquisition. Hr block com Section 108(i)(4)(A) defines the term “reacquisition” to mean, with respect to any applicable debt instrument, any acquisition of the debt instrument by the debtor that issued (or is otherwise the obligor under) the debt instrument, or a person related to the debtor under § 108(e)(4). Hr block com The term “acquisition” includes an acquisition of the debt instrument for cash or other property, the exchange of the debt instrument for another debt instrument (including an exchange resulting from a modification of the debt instrument), the exchange of the debt instrument for corporate stock or a partnership interest, the contribution of the debt instrument to capital, and the complete forgiveness of the indebtedness by the holder of the debt instrument. Hr block com See § 108(i)(4)(B). Hr block com The term “acquisition” also includes an indirect acquisition within the meaning of § 1. Hr block com 108-2(c) if a direct acquisition of the debt instrument would qualify for an election under § 108(i). Hr block com For example, if a corporation acquires debt of a partnership that the partnership issued in connection with its trade or business, and the partnership and corporation become related within six months of the corporation’s acquisition of the debt, the indirect acquisition is an acquisition for which an election under § 108(i) may be made. Hr block com . Hr block com 04 General Requirements for the Section 108(i) Election. Hr block com Section 108(i)(5)(B) provides, in general, that a taxpayer makes the § 108(i) election by including a statement that clearly identifies the applicable debt instrument with the return of tax imposed for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the instrument occurs. Hr block com (For purposes of this revenue procedure, a return of tax or income tax return includes an information return, and a taxpayer includes a person that files an information return. Hr block com ) The statement must include the amount of income to which § 108(i)(1) applies and other information the Service may prescribe. Hr block com Once made, a § 108(i) election is irrevocable and, except as provided in section 7 of this revenue procedure, may not be modified. Hr block com . Hr block com 05 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Pass-through Entities. Hr block com In the case of COD income realized by a pass-through entity from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the pass-through entity makes the § 108(i) election. Hr block com Section 108(i)(5)(B)(iii). Hr block com . Hr block com 06 Additional Information on Subsequent Years’ Returns. Hr block com Section 108(i)(7) authorizes the Service to issue guidance necessary or appropriate for applying § 108(i), including requiring reporting the election and other information on returns of tax for subsequent taxable years. Hr block com . Hr block com 07 Exclusivity. Hr block com Section 108(i)(5)(C) provides that if a taxpayer elects to apply § 108(i) to an applicable debt instrument, § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (D) do not apply to COD income deferred under § 108(i). Hr block com . Hr block com 08 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on Partnership Indebtedness. Hr block com Section 4. Hr block com 04(3) of this revenue procedure describes how a partnership may elect under § 108(i) to defer a portion of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument. Hr block com If a partnership elects to defer all or any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, all of the COD income with respect to that debt instrument, without regard to § 108(i), is allocated to the partners in the partnership immediately before the reacquisition in the manner in which the income would be included in the distributive shares of these partners under § 704 and the regulations thereunder, including § 1. Hr block com 704-1(b)(2)(iii). Hr block com Each partner’s share of this COD income is the partner’s COD income amount (“COD income amount”). Hr block com The partner’s COD income amount that is deferred under § 108(i) is the partner’s deferred amount (“deferred amount”). Hr block com The partner’s COD income amount that is not deferred and is included in the partner’s distributive share of partnership income for the taxable year of the partnership in which the reacquisition occurs is the partner’s included amount (“included amount”). Hr block com . Hr block com 09 Partner’s Deferred § 752 Amount. Hr block com A decrease in a partner’s share of a partnership liability resulting from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument that is not treated as a current distribution of money to the partner under § 752 by reason of § 108(i)(6) is the partner’s deferred § 752 amount (“deferred § 752 amount”). Hr block com A partner’s deferred § 752 amount may not exceed the lesser of (i) the partner’s deferred amount or (ii) gain that the partner would recognize in the year of reacquisition under § 731 as a result of the reacquisition absent § 108(i)(6). Hr block com To determine the amount of gain the partner would recognize under clause (ii) of the preceding sentence, the amount of any deemed distribution of money under § 752(b) resulting from the decrease in the partner’s share of a reacquired applicable debt instrument that is treated as an advance or draw of money under § 1. Hr block com 731-1(a)(1)(ii) is determined as if no COD income resulting from the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument is deferred under § 108(i). Hr block com See Rev. Hr block com Rul. Hr block com 92-97, 1992-2 C. Hr block com B. Hr block com 124, and Rev. Hr block com Rul. Hr block com 94-4, 1994-1 C. Hr block com B. Hr block com 195. Hr block com A partner’s deferred § 752 amount is treated as a distribution of money to the partner under § 752 at the same time, and to the extent remaining in the same amount, as the partner recognizes the COD income deferred under § 108(i). Hr block com . Hr block com 10 Allocation of Deferred COD Income on S Corporation Indebtedness. Hr block com For purposes of § 108(i), an S corporation’s COD income deferred under § 108(i) is shared pro rata only among those shareholders that are shareholders of the S corporation immediately before the reacquisition transaction. Hr block com . Hr block com 11 Deferred COD Income, Earnings and Profits, and Alternative Minimum Taxable Income. Hr block com (1) In general. Hr block com The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations regarding the computation of a corporation’s earnings and profits with respect to COD income and OID deductions that are deferred under § 108(i). Hr block com These regulations generally will provide that deferred COD income increases earnings and profits in the taxable year that it is realized and not in the taxable year or years that the deferred COD income is includible in gross income. Hr block com OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally will decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deduction would be allowed without regard to § 108(i). Hr block com COD income and OID deductions that are deferred increase or decrease adjusted current earnings under § 56(g)(4) in the taxable year or years that the income or deduction is includible or deductible in determining taxable income. Hr block com See § 1. Hr block com 56(g)-1(c)(1). Hr block com (2) Exceptions for certain special status corporations. Hr block com The Service and Treasury Department intend to issue regulations providing that in the case of regulated investment companies and real estate investment trusts, COD income deferred under § 108(i) generally increases earnings and profits in the taxable year or years in which the deferred COD income is includible in gross income and not in the year that the deferred COD income is realized. Hr block com OID deductions deferred under § 108(i) generally decrease earnings and profits in the taxable year or years that the deferred OID deductions are deductible. Hr block com . Hr block com 12 Extension of Time to Make Election. Hr block com Under § 301. Hr block com 9100-1 of the Procedure and Administration Regulations, the Service may grant an extension of time to make a regulatory election. Hr block com An election is a regulatory election if the due date is prescribed by regulation or other published guidance of general applicability. Hr block com Section 301. Hr block com 9100-2(a) provides an automatic 12-month extension from the due date for making certain regulatory elections. Hr block com SECTION 3. Hr block com SCOPE This revenue procedure applies to taxpayers that realize COD income from a reacquisition after December 31, 2008, and before January 1, 2011, of an applicable debt instrument, as provided in § 108(i). Hr block com SECTION 4. Hr block com ELECTION PROCEDURES . Hr block com 01 In General. Hr block com (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure makes the § 108(i) election by— (a) Attaching a statement meeting the requirements of section 4. Hr block com 05 of this revenue procedure to the taxpayer’s timely filed (including extensions) original federal income tax return for the taxable year in which the reacquisition of the applicable debt instrument occurs, and (b) If applicable, satisfying the additional requirements of section 4. Hr block com 07, 4. Hr block com 08, 4. Hr block com 09, or 4. Hr block com 10 of this revenue procedure. Hr block com (2) The Service grants an automatic extension of 12 months from the due date prescribed in section 4. Hr block com 01(1)(a) of this revenue procedure for making the § 108(i) election. Hr block com The rules that apply to an automatic extension under § 301. Hr block com 9100-2(a) apply to this automatic extension. Hr block com . Hr block com 02 Section 108(i) Elections Made by Members of Consolidated Groups. Hr block com The common parent of a consolidated group makes the § 108(i) election on behalf of all members of the group. Hr block com See § 1. Hr block com 1502-77(a). Hr block com . Hr block com 03 Aggregation Rule. Hr block com A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may treat two or more applicable debt instruments that are part of the same issue and that are reacquired during the same taxable year as one applicable debt instrument for purposes of this revenue procedure. Hr block com A pass-through entity may not treat two or more applicable debt instruments as one applicable debt instrument under this section 4. Hr block com 03 if the owners and their ownership interests in the pass-through entity immediately prior to the reacquisition of each applicable debt instrument are not identical. Hr block com . Hr block com 04 Partial Elections. Hr block com (1) A taxpayer within the scope of this revenue procedure may make an election for any portion of COD income realized from the reacquisition of any applicable debt instrument. Hr block com Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument, the taxpayer may elect under § 108(i)(1) to defer only $40 of the $100 of COD income. Hr block com The taxpayer may exclude from income the portion of COD income that the taxpayer does not elect to defer under § 108(i) ($60 in this example) under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. Hr block com (2) A taxpayer is not required to make an election for the same portion of COD income arising from each applicable debt instrument that it reacquires, but may make an election for different portions of COD income arising from different applicable debt instruments (whether or not part of the same issue). Hr block com Thus, for example, if a taxpayer realizes $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument (Instrument A) and $100 of COD income from the reacquisition of a different applicable debt instrument (Instrument B), the taxpayer may elect to defer all or a portion of the COD income associated with Instrument A and none or a different portion of the COD income associated with Instrument B. Hr block com (3) A partnership that elects to defer less than all of the COD income realized from the reacquisition of an applicable debt instrument may determine, in any manner, the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s deferred amount and the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s included amount. Hr block com Thus, for example, one partner’s deferred amount may be zero while another partner’s deferred amount may equal that partner’s COD income amount (or any portion thereof). Hr block com A partner may exclude from income the partner’s included amount under § 108(a)(1)(A), (B), (C), or (D), if applicable. Hr block com The provisions of this section 4. Hr block com 04(3) apply for purposes of § 108(i) only and are not intended as an interpretation of or a change to existing law under § 704. Hr block com . Hr block com 05 Contents of Election Statement. Hr block com A statement meets the requirements of this section 4. Hr block com 05 if the statement— (1) Label. Hr block com States “Section 108(i) Election” across the top. Hr block com (2) Required information. Hr block com Provides, for each applicable debt instrument the reacquisition of which generates COD income that the taxpayer is electing to defer under § 108(i)— (a) The name and taxpayer identification numbers, if any, of the issuer or issuers of the applicable debt instrument; (b) A general description of the applicable debt instrument (including the issue and maturity dates) and, in the case of any person other than a C corporation, a general description of the person’s trade or business to which the applicable debt instrument is connected; (c) A general description of the reacquisition transaction or transactions generating the COD income (including the date(s) of the transaction(s)); (d) The total amount of COD income for the applicable debt instrument that results from the reacquisition (in the case of a partnership, the aggregate of the partners’ COD income amounts) and a general description of the manner in which this amount is calculated; (e) The amount of COD income for the applicable debt instrument that the taxpayer is electing to defer under § 108(i); (f) In the case of a partnership, a list of partners that have a deferred amount, their identifying information and each partner’s deferred amount; and in the case of an S corporation, a list of shareholders with COD income deferred under § 108(i), their identifying information and each shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s deferred COD income; and (g) In cases in which a new debt instrument is issued or deemed issued in exchange for the applicable debt instrument (including exchanges under § 108(e)(4), § 108(i)(2)(B), and § 1. Hr block com 1001-3), the issuer’s name, the issuer’s taxpayer identification number, if any, a general description of the new debt instrument and whether the new debt instrument has OID, and if the new debt instrument has OID, a schedule of the OID that the issuer expects to accrue each taxable year on the instrument and the amount of OID that the issuer expects to defer under § 108(i)(2) each taxable year. Hr block com . Hr block com 06 Supplemental information. Hr block com The statement described in section 4. Hr block com 05 of this revenue procedure may specify for each applicable debt instrument an amount greater than the amount identified in section 4.

Hr block com 05(2)(d) of this revenue procedure. Hr block com This additional amount of COD income the taxpayer elects to defer may be described as the entire additional COD income, or as a percentage of any additional COD income. Hr block com If the taxpayer is a partnership, the partnership must specify each partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income that would be deferred (the partner’s additional deferred amount), which the partnership may describe for each partner as the partner’s entire share of the partnership’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the partner’s share of the partnership’s additional COD income. Hr block com If the taxpayer is an S corporation, the S corporation must specify each shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income that would be deferred, which the S corporation may describe for each shareholder as the shareholder’s entire share of the S corporation’s additional COD income or as a percentage of the shareholder’s share of the S corporation’s additional COD income. Hr block com In the case of partnerships and S corporations, the additional COD income and the portion of additional COD income that would be deferred are allocated or determined as provided in sections 2. Hr block com 08, 2. Hr block com 10 and, if applicable, 4. Hr block com 04(3) of this revenue procedure, respectively, as if the additional COD income was realized. Hr block com . Hr block com 07 Additional Requirements for Certain Partnerships Making a § 108(i) Election. Hr block com The rules of this section 4.

Hr block com (2) Election information statement provided to partners.

Hr block com Thus, if a taxpayer makes a protective election, the Service subsequently may require the taxpayer to report COD income deferred pursuant to the valid and irrevocable protective election even if the statute of limitations has expired for the year in which the COD income was realized and the protective election was made. Hr block com A taxpayer makes a protective election by attaching a statement satisfying the requirements of this section 4.

Hr block com The partnership may determine in any manner the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s deferred amount and the portion, if any, of a partner’s COD income amount that is the partner’s included amount. Hr block com No partner’s deferred amount with respect to an applicable debt instrument may exceed its COD income amount with respect to the applicable debt instrument, and the aggregate of deferred amounts of its partners with respect to an applicable debt instrument must equal the partnership’s deferred amount with respect to the applicable debt instrument.

Beware: Offers to Skip a Payment

If your credit company invites you to skip a monthly payment without a penalty, it is not doing you a favor. You will still owe finance charges on your unpaid balance. And interest could be adding up on any purchases you make after the due date you skipped.

Beware: Teaser Rates

Some cards are advertised with very low introductory interest rates called teasers. The rate is good for a short period of time. If you know you can pay what you owe while the low rate is in effect, it could be a good deal. But if the teaser time runs out and you still owe money, you could end up paying a higher rate than you might have without the special introductory rate. Just one late payment could also cancel the teaser rate.

Beware: Credit Insurance

When you take out a loan for a big purchase, a salesperson may try to sell you credit insurance. Your credit card company may also encourage you to purchase credit insurance. The coverage may be promoted as a way for you to protect yourself if your property is damaged or lost. Other credit insurance offers promises to make loan payments if you are laid off, become disabled or die. It is almost always better to buy regular property, life or disability insurance instead of credit insurance.

Be Alert: 'Credit Repair' Scams

Beware! Before you sign up for fee based credit repair services, beware. Many of the promised services are either illegal or ones you can do for free by yourself. Before you sign up to work with these companies, here are some tidbits to keep in mind:

  • A credit repair company must give you a copy of the "Consumer Credit File Rights under State and Federal Law" before you sign a contract.
  • The company cannot perform any services until you have signed a written contract and completed a three day waiting period, during which time you can cancel the contract without paying any fees.
  • The company cannot charge you until it has completed the promised services, according to the Credit Repair Organizations Act.
  • It is illegal to erase timely and accurate negative information contained in your credit history.
  • Suggestions that you create a new credit history (also called file segregation) by requesting an Employer Identification Number from the IRS are also illegal.
  • You can work to solve your own credit challenges, by requesting a free copy of your credit report, and by working with creditors to dispute incorrect information.

CARD Act Protections for Consumers

The Credit Card Accountability Responsibility & Disclosure (CARD) Act brought about sweeping protections for consumers. Among other things, your credit card company:

Fees

  • Cannot change rates or fees without sending you a notice 45 days in advance in most cases.
  • Must give you the option of rejecting a fee increase, but be aware that the credit card company may close your account if you reject the fee increase and may require a higher monthly payment.
  • Cannot charge you a late payment fee of more than $25, regardless of how much you owe- unless one of your last six payments was late or the credit card company can justify a higher fee based on the cost of late payments.
  • Cannot charge a late payment fee that is greater than your minimum payment.
  • Cannot charge you an inactivity fee for not using your card.
  • Cannot charge you more than one fee for a single late payment or any other violation of your cardholder agreement.
  • Cannot charge you over-the-limit transaction fees unless you opt in, stating that you want to allow transactions that take you over your credit card limit. If the credit card company allows the transaction without your opt-in, it cannot charge you a fee.
  • Can impose only one fee per billing cycle for transactions that take you over your credit limit if you opt in to over-the-limit transactions. You can revoke your opt-in at any time.

Payments

  • Has to tell you how long it will take to pay off your balance if you make only minimum payments.
  • Must mail or deliver your credit card bill at least 21 days before your payment is due.
  • Must apply any payments above the minimum required amount to the balance with the highest interest rate, if you have more than one rate.

Interest Rates

  • Cannot increase your rate for the first 12 months after you open an account unless you have a variable interest rate or an introductory rate; you are more than 60 days late paying your bill; or you are in a workout agreement and don't make payments as arranged.
  • Cannot charge higher rates for purchases made before you receive notice of a new rate.
  • Cannot use the double-cycle billing method when calculating interest; interest can only be charged on balances within the current billing cycle.
  • Cannot increase your Annual Percentage Rate (APR) without explaining why it is doing so. If your credit card company increases your APR, it generally must re-evaluate that rate increase every six months. Under some circumstances, it may have to reduce your rate after the evaluation.

What's more, a credit card company can grant credit cards to consumers under age 21 only if they can show they are able to make payments or have a cosigner for the card. The Federal Reserve has more information about CARD Act protections.
