The temporary regulations that are the subject of this document are under section 6103 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Need for Correction

The temporary regulations (T.D. 9439) that were published in the Federal Register on December 29, 2008, inadvertently removed §301.6103(j)(1)-1T in its entirety rather than removing §301.6103(j)(1)-1T(c). This document correctly adds the text of §301.6103(j)(1)-1T into the Code of Federal Regulations.
