In IRS Memorandum 202117012 (April 30, 2021), IRS Chief Counsel concluded that a sole proprietor that owned an aircraft (either directly or indirectly through a disregarded entity) was allowed to use the primary purpose test in Reg. §1.162-2(b)(1) to determine whether expenses for use of the aircraft by him were deductible. Further, the Chief Counsel ruled that Code Sec. 274(e)(2) and (9) and Reg. §1.274-10 do not apply to expenses for use by a sole proprietor of an aircraft owned by the sole proprietor.
