Technical Advice Memorandums, colloquially called TAMs, are similar to PLRs but rear their ugly heads during the course of a proceeding before the IRS (including audits or before the IRS appeals division). A TAM may be requested by an IRS employee responsible for examining a taxpayer’s return (or a taxpayer may request that a particular issue be referred to the Chief Counsel’s Office for technical advice, which is an extremely powerful tool). A TAM may not be requested for hypothetical transactions. Additionally and like a PLR, TAMs cannot be cited for precedence.
Private Letter Rulings (colloquially called “PLRs”) are written statements from attorneys at the IRS Chief Counsel’s Office. In a nutshell PLRs are requested by taxpayers prior to undertaking a specific transaction, when the law is unclear (indeed).
PLRs are granted only with respect to proposed transactions or completed transactions for which a return has not yet been filed.
Mucho más importante, PLRs can only be relied upon by the party that requested the ruling.
