September 20, 2013IRS Releases Proposed Arbitrage Regulations

On September 16, 2013, the IRS published proposed regulations (the Proposed Regulations) in the Federal Register covering several areas relating to tax-exempt bonds, including the determination of the issue price of such bonds. It is important to note that these Proposed Regulations are, for the most part, not yet in effect. While issuers may elect to apply certain portions of the Proposed Regulations, the general rule is that the Proposed Regulations will impact bonds issued on or after 90 days following the publication of final regulations in the Federal Register. For the time being, we will continue to apply the existing regulations (the Existing Regulations) unless it is advantageous to apply the Proposed Regulations to new transactions. Client Alert
