US Treasury and IRS propose tax relief related to LIBOR transitions

The United States Department of the Treasury and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) today issued proposed regulations allowing taxpayers to avoid adverse tax consequences from changing the terms of debt, derivatives, and other financial contracts to replace reference rates based on interbank offered rates (IBORs) with certain alternative reference rates. The proposed rules respond to a request for guidance from the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC), a broad-based committee of private sector and ex-officio government stakeholders convened by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System in advance of the expected market transition from IBORs to alternative reference rates, such as the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
