The Transfer Pricing Practice (TPP) primarily focuses on compliance activities for transfer pricing issues and is part of Treaty and Transfer Pricing Operations (TTPO) in the Large Business & International (LB&I) division of the IRS. Transfer pricing involves the pricing of goods, services and intellectual property transferred between related entities of multinational enterprises (typically corporations with a common parent company). When these transactions involve transfers between a U.S. and foreign related entity, tax issues arise over how much income should be reported in each country. The United States and foreign tax administrations have complex tax rules about how to determine intercompany pricing which leads to how much taxable income should be reported in each country. It is an area of significant tax controversy. The IRS Transfer Pricing Practice conducts many types of compliance activities related to transfer pricing including examinations, Compliance Assurance Process (CAP) audits, Campaigns (which may or may not include examinations), assistance with Advance Pricing Agreements and other efforts. Within TPP, there are four field territories (East, North, South and West) as well as the Practice Network. The Transfer Pricing Practice Network supports examiners working on transfer pricing issues by performing risk assessments and identifying emerging issues or issues of strategic importance and develops training and tools for transfer pricing issues, provides advice on campaigns, and assists agents in transfer pricing examinations.Read more*
