SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

The temporary regulations (TD 9258) and final and temporary regulations (TD 9264) that are the subject of these corrections are under sections 332, 351, 355, 368, 1081, 1502, and 1563 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Need for Correction

As published, TD 9258 and TD 9264 contain errors that may prove to be misleading and are in need of clarification. TD 9264 added § 1.1502-76T in error, as § 1.1502-76T was previously codified by TD 9258. This correcting amendment amends § 1.1502-76T as codified by TD 9258, and removes § 1.1502-76T as codified by TD 9264.

(iv) The provisions of this paragraph (c)(2) may be illustrated by the following examples (in which it is assumed that all the individuals are unrelated):

Example 1.

On each day of 1970 all the outstanding stock of corporations M, N, and P is held in the following manner:

IndividualsCorporations
M (percent)N (percent)P (percent)
A55405
B402040
C54055

Since the more-than-50-percent stock ownership requirement of section 1563(a)(2)(B) is met with respect to corporations M and N and with respect to corporations N and P, but not with respect to corporations M, N, and P, corporation N would, without the application of this paragraph (c)(2), be a component member on December 31, 1970, of overlapping groups consisting of M and N and of N and P. If N does not file an election in accordance with § 1.1563-1T (c)(2)(i), the Internal Revenue Service will determine the group in which N is to be included.

Example 2.

On each day of 1970, all the outstanding stock of corporations S, T, W, X, and Z is held in the following manner:

IndividualsCorporations
S (percent)T (percent)W (percent)X (percent)Z (percent)
D5252525252
E402222
F240222
G224022
H222402
I222240

On December 31, 1970, the more-than-50-percent stock ownership requirement of section 1563(a)(2)(B) may be met with regard to any combination of the corporations but all five corporations cannot be included as component members of a single controlled group because the inclusion of all the corporations in a single group would be dependent upon taking into account the stock ownership of more than five persons. Therefore, if the corporations do not file a statement in accordance with § 1.1563-1T (c)(2)(ii), the Internal Revenue Service will determine the group in which each corporation is to be included. The corporations or the Internal Revenue Service, as the case may be, may designate that three corporations be included in one group and two corporations in another, or that any four corporations be included in one group and that the remaining corporation not be included in any group.

(e) [Reserved]. For further guidance, see § 1.1563-1T(e)(1).
