IRS Counsel’s Memorandum Challenges Deductibility of Ceding Commission for Indemnity Reinsurance Transaction
6 January 2015
View Client Update
A recently released IRS counsel’s memorandum concluded that the taxpayer was required to amortize the ceding commission it paid pursuant to an indemnity reinsurance transaction that was part of a larger acquisition, instead of claiming a current deduction.
The counsel’s position is surprising and appears inconsistent with statutory authority.
