General Instructions
Who Must File
• A foreign corporation must file Form 8848 if it has
completely terminated all of its U.S. trade or business
according to Temporary Regulations section 1.884-2T(a)
during the tax year.
• A domestic transferee corporation must file Form 8848 if
U.S. assets have been transferred to it from a foreign
corporation in a transaction described in section 381(a), if
the foreign corporation was engaged (or deemed engaged)
in the conduct of a U.S. trade or business immediately prior
to the section 381(a) transaction. See Regulations section
1.884-2(c) and Temporary Regulations section 1.884-2T(c).
When To File
Form 8848 must be filed on or before the due date (including
extensions) prescribed for filing the corporation’s income tax
return. Attach Form 8848 to the corporation’s return for the
tax year during which the complete termination or section
381(a) transaction occurred.

during which the complete termination or section 381(a)
transaction occurred without executing a consent to extend
the time to assess the branch profits tax under Regulations
sections 1.884-2(a) and (c), the corporation may still execute
the consent by filing an amended return within 6 months of
the due date of the original return (excluding extensions).
Attach Form 8848 to the amended return and write “Filed
pursuant to section 301.9100-2” at the top of Form 8848.
