  • Taxing Private Equity Funds as Corporate ‘Developers’. Private equity funds attract a lot of attention. But what do they do? And how should they be taxed? Are they merely passive investors? Or are they corporate “developers,” which might suggest their profits are ordinary? Are they in a trade or business? If so, what are the consequences? This panel will discuss a provocative article penned by Steve Rosenthal in which he observes that private equity funds buy stock in companies that they intend to develop and resell. He recommends that the IRS draft regulations to treat the gains and losses on the sale of those companies (or their stock) as ordinary income. His co-panelists will offer different perspectives on the law and the implications of this proposal. For example, if the regulations were to take such a position, would it subject pension funds, charities, sovereign wealth funds and foreign investors (i.e., the majority of the capital providers to most funds) to full U.S. tax on their gains?
