IRS issues Interim partial relief on withholding tax on transfer of partnership interests

Published: 25 April 2018

On 2 April 2018, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued a notice (2018-29) which provides interim partial relief from withholding tax obligations that are imposed on transfer of partnership interests by non-US persons (see previous item).

These obligations are applicable on amounts paid and on certain partnership distributions to a foreign person where the partnership is engaged in a trade or business in the U.S. Taxpayers may rely on the interim guidance provided in the notice pending the issuance of the final regulations.
