English term or phrase: Hovering Deficit
Need help with this term:

If the foreign surviving corporation had a deficit in E&P prior to a transaction described in section 381, such deficit is recharacterized as a hovering deficit after such nonrecognition transaction. See section 381(c)(2)(B) and Regulations sections 1.367(b)-7(d)(2)(i) (post-1986 undistributed earnings) and 1.367(b)-7(e)(1) (pre-1987 E&P not previously taxed). An amount equal to the deficit reported in column (a), (b), or (c) of line 5a is included as a positive amount in line 5b of column (a), (b), or (c), respectively. An amount equal to the total hovering deficits reported in line 5b of columns (a), (b), and (c) is included as a negative number in column (d) of line 5b.

Thanks in advance.

“[...] a deficit in earnings and profits of either the transferee or transferor corporation can only be used to offset earnings and profits accumulated after the date of transfer. Section 381(c)(2)(B). This is commonly known as the `hovering deficit rule´. The hovering deficit rule is a legislative mechanism designed to deter the trafficking in favorable tax attributes that the IRS and courts had repeatedly encountered.”

En realidad quería decir "estacionario", es decir, que no varía, puesto que se trata de evitar el fraude fiscal con variaciones a favor, pero tampoco estoy segura. Disculpa el lapsus, Luximar.
