Final Section 267A Regulations: Overview and Specific Issues Raised in the Examples

The final section 267A regulations, covering the disallowance of deductions on hybrid instruments and entities, are quite complex, and many of their nuances only come to light upon close inspection of the extensive regulatory examples. In this half-hour webinar, Covington Tax will brief you on the interesting and sometimes surprising points raised by certain examples, including traps for the unwary and practice pointers. The webinar includes a link to a background primer on section 267A, for those new to the section 267A regulations, as well as a link to a set of diagrams of all the regulatory examples for your reference.

The remote attendee affirmation and evaluations forms are accessible here, but also available in the on-demand console. CLE credit available for one year after publication date, 8/3/2020.

Section 165(i): Losses Relating to COVID-19

This presentation will address Section 165(i), which provides that any loss occurring in a disaster area and attributable to a Federally declared disaster may, at a taxpayer’s election, be taken into account in the taxable year immediately preceding the disaster. We will provide a general overview of section 165(i), and will discuss some of the technical and factual questions that arise in connection with applying section 165(i) to COVID-19 related losses. We will also discuss whether the election must apply to all COVID-19 related losses, or can apply selectively to only some. We will then discuss how to make the election, how to revoke it, and will suggest steps that can be taken now in order to prepare for an I.R.S. examination of issues relating to the election.
