  3. Two types of Business Income Taxation Japanese know very little about the partnership taxation. 3

  4. Compendium; Partnership taxation • The premise;Limited longevity, which must accompany liquidation at final dissolution. As a result, annual tax levy is not necessary. • Non-recognition rule; IRC 721, 731 Gain or loss is not recognized by either a partnership or its partners on a contribution of property to the partnership in exchange for a partnership interest. As a result for instance, service contribution is not recognized as taxable income. • Freedom of accounting; IRC 703(b) A partnership generally is free to select its own accounting method, which may be different from that of its partners. As a result for instance, full expensing of investment, which is allowing investors to fully deduct the cost of an investment from taxable income, reduces the tax paid on the normal return to capital investment to zero, completely removing taxes from the investment decision. (Economic Report of the President 2007. Chapter 3 77page.) 4

  6. BUSINESS TAXATION andGLOBAL COMPETITIVENESSPaper of U.S. Treasury Conference, July 23 2007, page3 line6 • The individual income tax is also important to the taxation of businesses. • The noncorporate business sector is subject to the individual income tax on the business income distributed to owners of flow-through entities – partnerships, S corporations, and sole proprietorships, many of which are small and an important source of innovation and risk-taking to our economy. 6

  11. Passive Activity Loss Rule,1986-enacted • The key issue with passive activity loss rules is material participation. • If the taxpayer does not materially participate in the activity that is producing the passive losses, then those passive losses can only be declared against passive income. • If there is no passive income, then no passive loss can be deducted. So, passive Investors should, in any way they can, find good investment targets which have good chance to gain passive incomes. 14

  12. In the same 1986, U.S. catholic bishops have recommended to arrange the institution for partnerships. (”Economic Justice” includes both justices. ) 『万人に経済正義を Economic Justice for All』 原著は1986年刊 和訳は1988年刊 Chapter IVA New American Experiment: Partnership for the Public Good 296 Completing the unfinished business of the American experiment will call for new forms of cooperation and partnership among those whose daily work is the source of the prosperity and justice of the nation. The United States prides itself on both its competitive sense of initiative and its spirit of teamwork. Today a greater spirit of partnership and teamwork is needed; competition alone will not do the job. It has too many negative consequences for family life, the economically vulnerable, and the environment. Only a renewed commitment by all to the common good can deal creatively with the realities of international interdependence and economic dislocations in the domestic economy. The virtues of good citizenship require a lively sense of participation in the commonwealth and of having obligations as well as rights within it. The nation's economic health depends on strengthening these virtues among all its people, and on the development of institutional arrangements supportive of these virtues. 297 The nation's founders took daring steps to create structures of participation, mutual accountability, and widely distributed power to ensure the political rights and freedoms of all. We believe that similar steps are needed today to expand economic participation, broaden the sharing of economic power, and make economic decisions more accountable to the common good. As noted above, the principle of subsidiarity states that the pursuit of economic justice must occur on all levels of society. It makes demands on communities as small as the family, as large as the global society and on all levels in between. There are a number of ways to enhance the cooperative participation of these many groups in the task of creating this future. Since there is no single innovation that will solve all problems, we recommend careful experimentation with several possibilities that hold considerable hope for increasing partnership and strengthening mutual responsibility for economic justice. 15

  13. In 1993, a professioanl for partnership theory has turned up as US president. Page 268 16

  16. Main events in the innovation history of US partnership taxation. 19

  17. In 2010, Obama has codified “Economic Substance Doctrine”. • On March 30, 2010, President Obama signed into law the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (the “Act”). In an effort to offset some of the anticipated costs of the President’s healthcare reform measures, the Act also contains amendments to the Internal Revenue Code (the “Code”). Included among these amendments is a provision that codifies the common law “economic substance doctrine.” Evaluating the potential impact of this new provision is critical because it has the potential to deny expected tax benefits and impose a strict liability penalty on transactions that fail to meet its requirements. The new provision is effective for transactions entered into on or after March 31, 2010. • Economic Substance Doctrine Codified – Two-Prong Test The Act adds new Section 7701(o) to the Code, which provides that in the case of any transaction to which the economic substance doctrine is relevant, the transaction is treated as having economic substance only if (i) it changes in a meaningful way (apart from federal income tax effects) the taxpayer’s economic position, and (ii) the taxpayer has a substantial purpose (apart from federal income tax effects) for entering into the transaction. Sounds good! 20
