BOISE CASCADE CORPORATION, Plaintiff, v. UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant.
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF IDAHO
Civil Case No. 97-0312-S-BLW
November 1, 2001
The Court has before it a Report and Recommendation filed by the Chief United States Magistrate Judge. The Report was filed on November 24, 1998. On Janu4ry 11, 1999, the parties stipulated to administratively terminating the case to pursue settlement. When the settlement broke down, the case was reopened in July, 2000. Because of the passage of time caused by the settlement talks, the Court ordered further briefing, which has now been received.
The Court has examined this briefing and the Report pursuant to 2,9 U.S.C. ╖636(b)(1). The Court finds that the Report accurately sets forth the facts and correctly applies the governing legal standards. The Court agrees with the Chief Magistrate Judge that the redemptions qualified as dividends under ╖ 302(b) of the Internal Revenue Code and hence were deductible under ╖ 404(k). The Court further finds that Boise Cascade's deduction is not barred by ╖ 162(k)(1) of the Code. Accordingly,
