## IRC 965 Transition Tax Statement

Highlighted
Level 2

Hi there. Kindly assist on how to compute this part of IRC 965 Transition Tax Statement please.

LINE 3: TOTAL DEDUCTION UNDER SECTION 965(A)

PTO does not compute it automatically so if someone can give an illustration or a sample computation, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Are you preparing a F.5471 along with that?  If so, you should run the numbers from what you have for the CFC.

Yes, we are prepping F5471 as well so that we had the following:

Total amount required to be included in income by reason of section 965(a) = \$228,620

Aggregate foreign cash position, if applicable = \$406,494

But we are not sure how to calculate this line based on the following rule:

Total deduction under section 965(c) = ?

"A U.S. shareholder of a DFIC is allowed a deduction for the tax year in which the above rules apply in an amount equal to the sum of: (i) the U.S. shareholderâ€™s 8% rate equivalent percentage of the excess (if any) of: (a) the amount so included as gross income, over (b) the amount of the U.S. shareholderâ€™s aggregate foreign cash position, plus (ii) the U.S. shareholderâ€™s 15.5% rate equivalent percentage of so much of the amount described in item (i)(b) (above) as does not exceed the amount described in item (i)(a) (above). (Code Sec. 965(c)(1))"
