Nov. 28 — The IRS national office in a technical advice memorandum said a taxpayer's transfer of its interest in a mine is treated as a lease, rather than a sale, where the taxpayer retained a contingent production royalty interest.
The Internal Revenue Service office in TAM 201448020, released Nov. 28, considered an international mining company subsidiary's transfer for cash of its interest in a mine—which it had operated as a joint venture with other owners—retaining rights to production and bonus royalties.
