This course focuses on tax issues affecting the treatment of interest and debt. It covers the definition of bona fide debt, the impact of related parties, the avoidance of equity and lease characterization, and deductible versus nondeductible interest factors. Sticky cross issues such as the impact of at-risk rules under §465, passive loss restrictions of §469, and below-market rate loans under §7278 are examined. In addition, accounting method treatment of interest, points, prepaid interest, and discounted loans are reviewed. Particular attention is given to imputed interest and original issue discount.
