U.S. International Tax This Week for June 9

Ernst & Young's U.S. International Tax This Week newsletter for the week ending June 9 is now available. Prepared by Ernst & Young's International Tax Services group, this weekly update summarizes important news, cases, and other developments in international taxation.


Republican House Ways and Means Committee members are expected to soon release proposals that would address certain TCJA tax provisions (among others), with a committee markup of the bill possibly the week of 12 June. According to press reports, the measures reportedly will include restoring R&D expensing in place of the Section 174 R&D five-year amortization requirement, the prior-law calculation for the Section 163(j) interest deduction limitation, and the bonus depreciation phasedown.

Treasury and the IRS on 7 June released Notice 2023-42, providing penalty relief for corporations that did not pay estimated tax in regard to the new 15% corporate alternative minimum tax (CAMT) enacted by the Inflation Reduction Act. According to an IRS press release, the government has taken into consideration the "challenges" in determining CAMT liability as well as whether or not an applicable corporation is subject to the CAMT.

The IRS is planning to issue additional guidance in regard to US inbound and outbound intellectual property (IP) transfers that will address issues that were not covered in recent proposed regulations. Treasury and the IRS issued proposed regulations on 2 May, that would apply new rules to "repatriations" of IP subject to Section 367(d). In certain circumstances, the proposed regulations would permit the annual inclusions that Section 367(d) and its regulations require, to cease. An IRS official this week was quoted as saying there will be "subsequent packages" or rules, one or more of which will relate to Section 367(d). The official did not offer a timeline.

President Biden has nominated Marjorie Rollinson to be the next IRS Chief Counsel, one of only two IRS positions requiring Senate confirmation. Rollinson spent most of her career at EY, retiring as EY Deputy Director of National Tax, and has held several senior positions at the IRS including Associate Chief Counsel (International).
