These final regulations prevent the duplication of a net loss when loss assets are contributed to a corporation in a section 351 nonrecognition exchange. Under the regulations, the duplication of a net loss is prevented by reducing the transferee-corporation’s basis in the assets transferred, unless the transferor-shareholder elects to reduce its basis in the stock received in the exchange by the amount that would otherwise have been applied to reduce the corporation’s basis in its assets. Notice 2005-70 is obsolete.
