Debtwire Radio

In an episode of Debtwire Radio released today, Stroock partners Alex Cota and Michelle Jewett weigh in on recent IRS regulations regarding the tax on “deemed dividends.”

In May, the IRS issued final regulations that changed the deemed dividends tax regime, allowing certain U.S. borrowers and lenders to utilize foreign collateral with lower tax consequences, Debtwire noted.

In the podcast, Alex and Michelle address the question of whether lending transactions should now include more foreign collateral — considering that enforcing liens or foreclosing on foreign assets could lead to exorbitant expenses.
