Tuesday, August 30 | The new stock buyback excise tax and its M&A implications (2 pm ET)
The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 adds a new 1% excise tax to stock repurchases made by publicly traded corporations, generally applicable to repurchases made after December 31, 2022. This new tax may add additional costs to stock repurchases and new compliance obligations to the tax departments of publicly traded companies. But new IRC Section 4501 may also have broader effects, potentially affecting a wide variety of common M&A activity.
