Ruling

An official opinion by the IRS on how it interprets U.S. tax law. The IRS may make a ruling, for example, after seeing taxpayers apply a deduction or credit to an unusual, but still relevant situation. The IRS determines whether or not it will accept the situation, and, afterward, applies the ruling to all comparable situations. It is also called a revenue ruling, a letter ruling, or a private letter ruling.

TEI is concerned that the Proposed Regulations fail to capture the complex processes and activities carried on by PTPs and consequently provide rules that are inconsistent with section 7704(d)(1)(E) and its legislative history as previously interpreted and applied by the IRS in PLRs.
