Other Events.

On January20, 2017, SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. (the
Partnership) issued the following statement in a press
release responding to the Internal Revenue Services (IRS)
decision to exclude cokemaking as a qualifying income generating
activity in its final regulations issued under section
7704(d)(1)(E) of the Internal Revenue Code relating to the
qualifying income exception for publicly traded partnerships:

We are disappointed that cokemaking was not included as an
activity that generates qualifying income and that the public
comments and testimony provided to the IRS by SunCoke and
third-party industry experts were not incorporated in the final
regulations, said Fritz Henderson, President, Chairman and CEO of
SunCoke Energy Partners, L.P. After conferring with our counsel,
Vinson Elkins LLP, we believe that income from our coke
operations will be qualifying income during the 10-year
transition period contemplated by the final regulations.

The Partnership is evaluating its options for engaging with the
IRS to address its concerns with the scope of these qualifying
income restrictions. A copy of the press release is filed as
Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is
incorporated by reference herein.
