T.D. 9448, under Section 7520, provides guidance relating to the use of actuarial tables in valuing annuities, interests for life or terms of years, and remainder or reversionary interests. The regulations will affect the valuation of inter vivos and testamentary transfers of interests dependent on one or more measuring lives. The regulations are unnecessary because Section 7520(c)(3) directs the Secretary to update the actuarial tables to reflect the most recent mortality experience available.
