It is the policy of the Service to publish in the Bulletin all substantive rulings necessary to promote a uniform application of the tax laws, including all rulings that supersede, revoke, modify, or amend any of those previously published in the Bulletin.All published rulings apply retroactively unless otherwise indicated.Section 358(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) generally provides that the basis of property received pursuant to an exchange to which section 351, 354, 355, 356, or 361 applies is the same as that of the property exchanged, decreased by the fair market value of any other property (except money) received by the taxpayer, the amount of any money received by the taxpayer, and the amount of loss to the taxpayer which was recognized on such exchange, and increased by the amount which was treated as a dividend, and the amount of gain to the taxpayer which was recognized on such exchange (not including any portion of such gain which was treated as a dividend).Section 358(b)(1) provides that, under regulations prescribed by the Secretary, the basis determined under section 358(a)(1) must be allocated among the properties received in the exchange or distribution.
Also included in this part are Bank Secrecy Act Administrative Rulings.The regulations also set forth the requirements for designated Roth contributions under a section 403(b) plan and address the application of the universal availability requirement to the right of any employee to make designated Roth contributions under a section 403(b) plan. It is published weekly and may be obtained from the Superintendent of Documents on a subscription basis.Until further guidance is issued, the Service will disregard a spousal right of election for purposes of determining whether a charitable remainder annuity trust (CRAT) or charitable remainder unitrust (CRUT) meets the requirements of section 664(d)(1)(B) or (d)(2)(B) of the Code, provided that the right of election is not exercised. Bulletin contents are compiled semiannually into Cumulative Bulletins, which are sold on a single-copy basis.In the course of developing the proposed regulations, the IRS and Treasury Department considered whether a tracing method or an averaging method should be used to determine the basis of stock and securities received in such transactions.The proposed regulations’ adoption of the tracing method is based on the view of the IRS and Treasury Department that, in light of the carryover basis rule of section 358, a reorganization is not an event that justifies averaging the bases of exchanged stock or securities that have been purchased at different times and at different prices.
