New Journal From CCH Provides Cutting-edge Guidance On Corporate Tax Strategies

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., May 17, 2002) – For tax professionals involved with structuring corporate transactions – from mergers to compensation plans – there is a new resource from CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of tax law information and software. The new CCH Journal of Taxation of Corporate Transactions covers critical developments in the corporate tax area from the perspective of the transactional practitioner. Each bimonthly issue addresses the increasingly complex planning and compliance issues facing corporate taxpayers and the impact of the legislative, regulatory and administrative changes on these issues. ($205 for an annual print subscription. To order or for more information, visit or call 800-449-8114.)

Each issue of the Journal contains topically focused columns and in-depth articles that provide coherent, real-world analysis of recent developments and planning opportunities. The Journal also includes regular commentary on developments in areas such as cross-border rules, partnership and joint venture issues, executive compensation issues and other tax law topics as they impact corporate transactions.

First Issue Looks at Rite Aid, Debt Restructurings, REIT Spin-Offs

In the inaugural issue of the Journal, Francis Wirtz, of Freeborn & Peters, examines the recent Rite-Aid holding and lays out the likely development of consolidated return rules in light of the decision and the government’s response to it.

In an article entitled Key Federal Income Tax Issues In Corporate Debt Structurings, Keith Vollmow and Olga Loy of Kirkland & Ellis provide a detailed look at the principal federal income tax situations that must be addressed in assisting corporations and their corporate debt holders formulate restructuring plans.

The IRS’s change of position on the taxability of the spin-off of corporate assets to a real estate investment trust is the focus of Assessing REIT Spin-Off Transactions by Andrea Despotes of Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg. She carefully examines whether corporate taxpayers with significant real estate holdings are likely to benefit from the government’s new position.
