220.0000 CHANGE IN OWNERSHIP

Annotation 220.0666

220.0666 Step Transaction. Whether a series of transfers constitute for tax purposes one or several transactions is a question of fact. The proper classification is made by application of three alternative court sanctioned tests, to wit: the

(a) binding commitment test,

(b) interdependence test, and

(c) end result test.

If at the time the first step is taken there was a binding commitment to take a later step(s), or if the first step would have been fruitless without the completion of the series, or if the ultimate or end result was intended from the outset, a conclusion that a series of transfers constituted a single transaction for "change of ownership" purposes is warranted.
