Memorandum Opinion

Maryland's federal district court rejected the IRS contention that internal IRS regulations wipe out state recording statutes and the "relation back" principle that gives deeds an effective date prior to actual recording.

The IRS internal regulations cannot trump the unambiguous meaning of the federal statute passed by Congress which clearly incorporates operation of state "relation back" recording statutes.
