The final regulations (TD 9424) that are the subject of this document are under sections 337, 358, 362 and 1502 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Need for Correction

As published, the final regulations (TD 9424) contain an error that may prove to be misleading and is in need of clarification. The final regulations revised § 1.1502-35(a) to provide that, in general, § 1.1502-35 would only apply to transactions completed prior to September 17, 2008. The final regulations also revised the operative rules in § 1.1502-35. However, the effective date prescribed in § 1.1502-35(j) appeared to preclude the application of the revised § 1.1502-35 to transactions completed prior to September 17, 2008. The final regulations are clarified to provide that the revised rules in § 1.1502-35 (including the ten-year termination of application of § 1.1502-35 described in Background section 2.A. of the preamble) apply after September 16, 2008, to all transactions subject to that section.
