Treasury and IRS Release Final BEAT Regulations

On September 1, the Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service released final regulations under section 59A. Section 59A imposes a base erosion and anti-abuse tax (or BEAT), which generally operates as a minimum tax on income without regard to certain deductible payments made to foreign related parties. The final regulations finalize proposed regulations that were issued in December 2019 and generally provide guidance with respect to the determination of a taxpayer’s aggregate group, provide an election to waive deductions in order to avoid triggering BEAT, and detail application of BEAT to partnerships.
