§ 1.954-2T Foreign personal holding company income (temporary).
(a) through (c)(2)(i) [Reserved] For further guidance see, § 1.954-2(a) through (c)(2)(i).
(ii) Substantiality of foreign organization. For purposes of paragraph (c)(1)(iv) of this section, whether an organization in a foreign country is substantial in relation to the amount of rents is determined based on all facts and circumstances. However, such an organization will be considered substantial in relation to the amount of rents if active leasing expenses, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iii) of this section, equal or exceed 25 percent of the adjusted leasing profit, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iv) of this section. In addition, for purposes of aircraft or vessels leased in foreign commerce, an organization will be considered substantial if active leasing expenses, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iii) of this section, equal or exceed 10 percent of the adjusted leasing profit, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iv) of this section. For purposes of paragraphs (c)(1)(iv) and (c)(2) of this section and § 1.956-2T(b)(1)(vi), the term aircraft or vessels includes component parts, such as engines that are leased separately from an aircraft or vessel.
(c)
(2)
(iii) through (c)(2)(iv) [Reserved] For further guidance see, § 1.954-2(c)(2)(iii) through (c)(2)(iv).
(v) Leased in foreign commerce. For purposes of paragraph (c)(1)(iv) and (2)(ii) of this section, an aircraft or vessel is considered to be leased in foreign commerce if the aircraft or vessel is used in foreign commerce and is used predominately outside the United States. For purposes of this paragraph (c)(2)(v), an aircraft or vessel is considered to be leased in foreign commerce if used for the transportation of property or passengers between a port (or airport) in the United States and one in a foreign country or between foreign ports (or airports) provided the aircraft or vessel is used predominantly outside the United States. An aircraft or vessel will be considered to be used predominantly outside the United States if more than 50 percent of the miles traversed during the taxable year in the use of such property are traversed outside the United States or if the aircraft or vessel is located outside the United States more than 50 percent of the time during the taxable year.
(vi) Leases acquired by the CFC lessor. Except as provided in this paragraph (c)(2)(vi), the exception in paragraph (c)(1)(iv) of this section will also apply to rents from leases acquired from any person, if following the acquisition the lessor performs active and substantial management, operational, and remarketing functions with respect to the leased property. However, if any person is claiming a benefit with respect to an acquired lease pursuant to sections 921 or 114 of the Internal Revenue Code or section 101(d) of the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004, Public Law 108-357 (118 Stat. 1418) (2004), the rents from such lease, notwithstanding § 1.954-2(b)(6), (2)(c) and the remainder of this section, are ineligible for the exception in section 954(c)(2)(A).
(vii) Finance leases. Paragraph (c)(1)(iv) of this section can apply to a lessor engaged in the marketing of leases that are treated as finance leases for financial accounting purposes but are treated as leases for Federal income tax purposes.
(3) Examples 1 through 5 [Reserved] For further guidance, see § 1.954-2(c)(3) Examples 1 through 5.
Example 6.
The facts are the same as in Example 2, except that controlled foreign corporation D purchases aircraft which it leases to others. If Corporation D incurs active leasing expenses, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iii) of this section, equal to or in excess of 10 percent of its adjusted leasing profit, as defined in paragraph (c)(2)(iv) of this section, the rental income of Corporation D from its leases with the unrelated foreign corporations is substantial and will be considered as derived in the active conduct of a trade or business for purposes of section 954(c)(2)(A). If a particular aircraft subject to lease was not used by the lessee corporation in foreign commerce, for example, because 50 percent or less of the miles during the taxable year were traversed outside the United States and the aircraft was located in the United States for 50 percent or more of the taxable year, Corporation D is not prevented from otherwise showing that it actively carries on a trade or business with regard to the rents derived from that aircraft, for example, based on its facts and circumstances, or as within the meaning of paragraph (c)(1)(i) or (iii) of this section.
(d) through (h) [Reserved] For further guidance, see § 1.954-2(d) through (h).
(i)
(1) Effective/applicability date. Paragraph (c) of this section applies to taxable years of controlled foreign corporations beginning on or after May 2, 2006, and for tax years of United States shareholders with or within which such tax years of the controlled foreign corporations ends. Taxpayers may elect to apply paragraph (c) of this section to taxable years of controlled foreign corporations beginning after December 31, 2004, and for tax years of United States shareholders with or within which such tax years of the controlled foreign corporations end. If an election is made to apply paragraph (b)(1)(vi) of this section to taxable years beginning after December 31, 2004, then the election must also be made for paragraph (c) of this section.
(2) Expiration date. The applicability of § 1.954-2T(c) will expire on July 1, 2011.
