Tax Court Holds Section 883 Regulations Valid under Chevron Test
U.S. Tax Court issues opinion upholding the validity of regulations issued under Internal Revenue Code Section 883.
The gross income from the international operation of ships by foreign corporations, if the foreign country in which the corporation is organized grants an equivalent exemption to corporations organized in the United States, is exempt from U.S. tax by Code Section 883(c)(1). This code section provides that the exemption doesn’t apply if 50+% of the value of a foreign corporation’s stock is owned those who nonresidents of a foreign country that grants an equivalent exemption to U.S. corporations. In this case the ownership regulations validity was challenged. The Tax Court’s holding in favor of the validity of the Ownership Regulations is specific to the specific provisions at issue in those regulations.
