Correcting amendment.


This document contains correcting amends to temporary regulations under section 108(i) of the Internal Revenue Code. These regulations primarily affect C corporations regarding the acceleration of deferred discharge of indebtedness (COD) income (deferred COD income) and deferred original issue discount (OID) deductions (deferred OID deductions) under section 108(i)(5)(D), and the calculation of earnings and profits as a result of an election under section 108(i). These errors were made when the agency published temporary regulations (TD 9497) in the Federal Register on Friday, August 13, 2010 (75 FR 49394).


This correction is effective on September 14, 2010, and is applicable on August 13, 2010.
