In a letter to United States Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew, the Association of Global Automakers expressed serious concerns about the potential impact of the proposed debt-equity regulations under Internal Revenue Code section 385 released by the Treasury Department on April 4, 2016. The letter states the proposed guidance, which overturns long-standing tax principles and well-established case law and regulations, will significantly increase the cost of doing business in the United States, and create further obstacles to much needed investment, job creation and economic growth.
