Taking the Sting out of Mandatory Repatriation: Consider OFLs, NOLs, and FTCs

As we approach the final stages in the tax reform process, the details and what-if scenarios are swarming. One detail everyone should be aware of is that the House and Senate bills impose a tax on the deferred foreign income of U.S. shareholders of CFCs as part of the transition to a territorial system of taxation.
