On August 3, 2015, TEI submitted comments to the IRS on proposed regulations (REG-132634-14) relating to qualifying income from activities of publicly traded partnerships with respect to minerals or natural resources. The Institute’s comments focused on how the proposed regulations fail to capture the complex processes and activities carried on by publicly traded partnerships and, as a result, propose rules that are inconsistent with section 7704(d)(1)(E) and its legislative history as previously interpreted and applied by the IRS in 27 years of ruling practice.
