Captive Insurance Times Quotes Rachel Partain: Advisers Should Act Now on Notice 2016-66

Date: 11/28/2016

Advisers should not take a “wait and see” approach to the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Notice 2016-66, according to Rachel Partain, member of law firm Caplin & Drysdale.

Partain suggested that advisers should begin collecting information and preparing forms in earnest, given the significant penalties.

. . .

Partain said: “Contacting the IRS with questions regarding how to interpret some unclear aspects of the notice might result in the IRS issuing a clarified notice with a new due date, similar to the reissued basket option contract transaction notices in 2015.”

. . .

Partain said: “An extension of the 30 January 2017 due date would allow captive managers and the certified public accountants for the insureds and business owners sufficient time to coordinate a consistent response and ensure that the necessary disclosures are filed properly and timely, especially given that managers may be focusing on policy renewals and restructuring ownership structures in order to qualify under section 831(b) beginning in 2017.”
