1502-47 [PDF 4/1/2014] Life-Nonlife Consolidated Return Regulations[**]

Editor's note; Treasury regulations for life insurance companies include provisions that correspond to the codification of several life insurance company tax regimes. They primarily relate to the Life Insurance Company Tax Act of 1959, as amended. Treasury regulations under section 803 and certain regulations under sections 801, 802 and 806 relate to the taxable years beginning in 1954 under the original Internal Revenue Code of 1954. Other provisions relate to the tax regime enacted under the Tax Reform Act of 1984, as amended.

*Editor's note; Treasury Decision 9257 changed the Treasury regulations for section 846 to address the impact of 338 on an insurer's election to use its historical payment pattern under section 846(e).

**Editor's note; Treasury Decision 9258 includes changes to the life-nonlife consolidated return regulations that eliminate the separate profitable from loss activities restriction under the tacking rules for effective years.
