Version 8 change log
(1) Minor cosmetic things.
(2) Added to note in T16 with respect to 1256(e) contracts talking about interaction with 475(f)(1)(a) and 1.446-4
(3) Split out D22 into a separate investment and hedge tab instead of squishing them together.
(4) Changed D25 to apply 1.446-4/1221 instead of going through all dealer elections since the presumption would be that the dealer has made a 1221 id
(5) Expanded note in T1 to address issue of whether 475(f) is entity-level or trade or business level election.
(6) Added link in note to T13 to ABA commentary, which argued that proposed regulations under 475(f) went further than the statute permitted.
(7) Whereever a partnership was made subject to 1236 in my spreadsheet, added a further tab to elicit that and change the treatment because the definition of security in 1236 does not include partnership interests/trusts (unlike 475)
(8) Moved notes to start in row 9 except for a couple of tabs for easy removal on public versions
(9) Color coded tabs for dealer, trader, investor
(10) Due to definition of securities held for investment in 1.475(b)-1(a)
-Added definition of investment in 1.475(b)-1(a) to notes in D22
-For D12 and D18, drew a link to investment identication as treasury                                               investment identification seems to include trading activity
-Deleted D12.1, D19, D19.1
-Added some discussion of 475(b)(1)(B) to investment tabs.
(11) Eliminated branch dealing with improper investment ID since it was on a path that assumed something was an investment. Kept the information in a footnote though.
(12) Added footnote adding 1.475(b)-1(d) to dealer tabs dealing with 475(b)(1)(C) hedging elections (for hedging another member’s consolidated group risk).
(13) Made a note on trader tabs that 475(b)(1)(C) doesn’t appear to apply to traders by its terms (it only makes 475(a) inapplicable and not 475(f)(1)(A)) and 475(f)(1)(D) doesn’t appear to drag it in either. Deleted tab D13, D13.1, T6 and T10 which linked to 475(b)(1)(C) election in the context of a 475(f) election.
(14) In D15 eliminated third option as that is dealt with in the next step anyway.
