Proposed Section 2704 Regulations
Authors: Micah J. Miller, Melinda B. Barker, Jennifer Jordan McCall, Kim T. Schoknecht, Elizabeth H.W. Fry

On August 2, 2016, the Treasury Department released proposed regulations amending and expanding upon the current regulations to Internal Revenue Code Section 2704. The proposed regulations, if adopted, would limit or eliminate certain discounts currently recognized under the law that are used when valuing certain transfers of an interest in a family-owned or closely held business. The stated aim of the proposed regulations is to prevent specific perceived abuses of valuation discounts. However, the scope of the proposed regulations as drafted may potentially have a much broader impact on legitimate valuations. Nevertheless, there is likely to remain the potential for some valuation discounts, such as for lack of control and lack of marketability, that reflect genuine economic realities.
