New Proposed Regulations modify withholding and other misc. requirements under FATCA and chapter 3. Some of the more interesting changes include:
No Withholding on Gross Proceeds. Under Code §§471(a) and 1472, withholdable payments made to certain FFIs and certain NFFEs are subject to withholding under chapter 4. Under Code §1473(1) the term “withholdable payment” means: (i) any payment of interest (including any original issue discount), dividends, rents, salaries, wages, premiums, annuities, compensations, remunerations, emoluments, and other fixed or determinable annual or periodical gains, profits, and income. . .
