SandRidge -2.6%, says MLP tax request held up at IRS

  • SandRidge Energy (SD -2.6%) says its letter asking the IRS whether its water disposal business qualifies as tax-free for inclusion in a possible MLP has run into delays at the agency that could go on for months.
  • The IRS appears to be more closely reviewing the scope of assets that can qualify as tax-free for MLPs and pausing the issuance of private letter rulings that companies normally ask for when setting up the structures.
  • SD is exploring ways, including forming an MLP, to unlock the value of its fracking water disposal business it values at ~$1B.

    Under this Oblamo administration the IRS & SEC and other agencies are the most unfriendly to business of any prior (including the Carter administration!._)
