The final regulations that are the subject of these corrections are under sections 743, 754, and 755 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Need for Correction

As published, TD 8847 contains errors which may prove to be misleading and are in need of clarification.

Correction of Publication

Accordingly, the publication of the final regulations (TD 8847), which were the subject of FR Doc. 99-32400, is corrected as follows:

1. On page 69904, column 1, in the preamble under the paragraph heading “Explanation of Revisions and Summary of Contents”, paragraph 1.(c), the last line, the language “after December 15, 1999.” is corrected to read “on or after December 15, 1999.”.

Elections Under Section 754”, lines 9 and 10, the language “previously were made, the IRS and Treasury believe that it is appropriate to” is corrected to read “previously were made, the IRS and the Treasury Department believe that it is appropriate to”.

3. On page 69906, column 2, in the preamble under the paragraph heading “Special Analyses”, the paragraph is corrected to read as follows:

“It has been determined that these final regulations are not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. It has been determined that a final regulatory flexibility analysis is required for the collection of information in this Treasury decision under 5 U.S.C. 604. This analysis is set forth below under the heading “Final Regulatory Flexibility Act Analysis.” Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Internal Revenue Code, the notice of proposed rulemaking preceding these regulations was submitted to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on their impact on small business. No comments were received regarding the impact of the regulations on small business.”

4. On page 69906, column 2, in the preamble, the paragraph heading “Summary of Final Regulatory Flexibility Act Analysis” is corrected to read “Final Regulatory Flexibility Act Analysis”.
