In the June 8, 1990, issue of Agricultural Law Digest, we discussed a 1989 amendment specifying that, with some exceptions, for transfers after October 2, 1989, debt securities issued as part of a tax free exchange are treated as boot. Gain is recognized to the extent of boot received by the transferor.
