SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The final regulations that are the subject of this document are under section 367(a) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Need for Correction

The final regulations (T.D. 9446) that were published in the Federal Register on February 11, 2009, inadvertently removed Treas. Reg. §1.367(a)-3T in its entirety rather than removing §1.367(a)-3T(e), (f)(1), (f)(2), and the second sentence of §1.367(a)-3T(f)(3). This document correctly adds the text of §1.367(a)-3T back into the Code of Federal Regulations.

* * * * *

Accordingly, 26 CFR Part 1 is corrected by making the following correcting amendments:

PART 1—INCOME TAXES

Paragraph 1. The authority citation for part 1 continues to read in part as follows:

Authority: 26 U.S.C. 7805 * * *

Par. 2. Section 1.367(a)-3T is added to read as follows:

§1.367(a)-3T Treatment of transfers of stock or securities to foreign corporations (temporary).

(a) through (b)(2)(i)(B) [Reserved]. For further guidance, see §1.367(a)-3(a) through (b)(2)(i)(B).

(b)(2)(i)(C) If in connection with a transaction described in §1.367(b)-14T, one or more U.S. persons transfer stock of T, as defined in §1.358-6(b)(1)(iii), to a corporation in a transfer described in section 367(a), and the amount of gain in the T stock that would otherwise be recognized under section 367(a) is less than the deemed distribution that would result from the adjustments made under §1.367(b)-14T and that would be treated as a dividend under section 301(c)(1), then section 367(b), and not section 367(a), shall apply to such transaction. This paragraph (b)(2)(i)(C) applies to transfers occurring on or after May 23, 2008.

(b)(2)(ii) through (f) [Reserved]. For further guidance, see §1.367(a)-3(b)(2)(ii) through (f).
