  • About

    DTCC’s 1446 Announcements disseminates data from Qualified Notices received from publicly traded partnerships (“PTPs”). Regulations under Section 1446 of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code require PTPs to provide DTC with Qualified Notices that provide:

    • The tax classification of distributions for 1042-S purposes,
    • If the distribution is in excess of Cumulative Net Income (“CNI”), and
    • The Posting Date of a Qualified Notice providing for an exception to withholding on PTP sales

  • How the Service Works

    Tax regulations require that PTPs send DTC qualified notices as a registered holder that is also a nominee. PTPs should send Qualified Notices to [email protected]. When DTC first announces a distribution from a PTP the distribution is coded with IRS Income Code 58 “publicly traded partnership distributions – undetermined.” When DTC receives the Qualified Notice from the PTP, the Announcement is updated to:

    1. Reflect the IRS Income Code(s) as detailed on the Qualified Notice, and
    2. If the Qualified Notice states that all, a portion, or none of the distribution is in Excess of CNI, then a 1446(f) Excess of Cumulative Net Income Announcement is created providing the amount of the distribution that is in excess of CNI.

    Independent of the distribution, Qualified Notices may also provide for an exception to withholding requirements on a transfer and brokers may rely on the qualified notice for 92 days from the posting date. When DTC receives as Qualified Notice providing such an exception, a 92 Day Exemption Qualified Notice Announcement is created providing the Posting Date as provided on the Qualified Notice.
