SUMMARY OF REGULATION:
This regulation repeals and replaces the outdated Accounting Methods Regulation, promulgated in 1958, and explains recent statutory changes to the Massachusetts installment sale election provision under G.L. c. 62, § 63. The statutory changes, effective for tax years beginning on or after January 1, 2005, allow taxpayers who are treated as electing installment sale treatment federally to automatically qualify for Massachusetts's installment sale treatment if the Massachusetts gain for the entire transaction is less than $1 million.
