Recently issued final regulations under sections 367(b) and 1248 clarify the amount of earnings and profits taken into account by some U.S. shareholders upon an otherwise tax-free inbound exchange of the stock or assets of the parent of a tiered group of controlled foreign corporations. This article explains the rationale underlying the clarification, which was not articulated in its issuance, and endorses it from both technical and policy perspectives.
