Rev. Rul. 90-84
Tax shelter organizer receipt or subscription for a limited partnership. When a tax shelter organizer, in connection with a tax shelter offering, accepts fully paid subscriptions for a proposed limited partnership that will be capitalized only upon receipt of a minimum number of subscriptions, the organizer is not required to furnish investors with the tax shelter registration number upon mere receipt of subscriptions to the tax shelter offering.

Rev. Rul. 90-85
Passive losses and tax shelter registration. Representations by a tax shelter organizer to prospective investors in a passive activity that certain losses of the activity may be disallowed to the extent that aggregate deductions from the activity exceed aggregate income from the activity have no effect on the computation of an investor's tax shelter ratio for purposes of section 6111 of the Code.

Rev. Rul. 90-86
Partnership registering as a tax shelter. In determining whether a partnership must be registered as a tax shelter under section 6111 of the Code, the numerator of the tax shelter ratio calculated for each partner under section 6111(c)(2) includes each partner's share of the gross deductions of the partnership. If the partnership invests in a second partnership, the numerator of the tax shelter ratio for each partner in the first partnership includes that partner's share of the gross deductions of both partnerships.

Trust-fund taxes. Trust-fund tax payments from general accounts were transfers of property held in trust and therefore cannot be avoided as preferences.

Proposed regulations under section 401 and 410 of the Code relate to nondiscrimination, permitted disparity, and minimum coverage requirements for qualified plans.
