Technical advice memorandum 254157, 5/05/1995, IRC Sec (s) of Jimmy Rudd, TX 27564 Chicago, ID. No: 284640001 a member of golf and tennis clubs. According to the market loan rates loan rules as significant effect loans under code Sec. 7872 (c) (1)(E), any membership dues that the club which is a tax payer received from any member are treated as non taxable loans and therefore not income. This is basically because the taxpayer or the club of which you are a member is obliged to the refund of the deposits in 30 years just incase it haven’t done so. According to the membership regulations, the deposits are neither used in the buying of the delinquencies to the members nor advance payments but the deposits are not subject to market-loan rules.
The fact of the matter in this memorandum is that once a member has joined the club, he is bound by the regulations of the club through which he signs the membership form that consists all the regulations of the club membership. According to the codes of the club membership, every member that pays the deposit fee is always issued with a promissory note stating that the deposits issued to the club will be refunded to him after the clubs completion of its developments with no interest at all in a period not less than thirty years.
Therefore, if interest were surcharged on this deposit by the lender or any member of the club during the repayment, he would not be accorded due to the tax regulation. The borrower is in this case the one who might have paid tax for it but not the lender and there fore any money that is not to subject of tax could not gain any interest to the lender according to Section1.61-1 (a) of the income tax regulations.
In conclusion, the membership deposits for the clubs received by the taxpayer are not subject to tax according o section 61 of the tax code. Also under section 7872 (c)(1)(E) of the code, the club membership deposits received by the taxpayer are therefore not subject to any form of imputation at all.
