Notice of proposed rulemaking by cross-reference to temporary regulations.

Background and Explanation of Provisions
Temporary regulations in the Rules and Regulations section of this issue of the Federal Register amend 26 CFR Part 1. The temporary regulations modify the effective date provision for TD 9638 [78 FR 62418], published on October 22, 2013, which provided final regulations that altered the operation of certain of the public group segregation rules under section 382. The temporary regulations apply to stock acquired by Treasury pursuant to certain programs under EESA (Programs). In particular, the temporary regulations apply to the subsequent sale by Treasury of that stock. The text of those regulations also serves as the text of these proposed regulations. The preamble to the temporary regulations explains the amendments.
It has been determined that this notice of proposed rulemaking is not a significant regulatory action as defined in Executive Order 12866, as supplemented by Executive Order 13563. Therefore, a regulatory assessment is not required. It is hereby certified that these regulations will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. This certification is based on the fact that, if the regulations apply to any small entities, the effect will not be to increase their tax liability, but to prevent a potential increase in tax liability that might otherwise occur. Therefore, a Regulatory Flexibility Analysis under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. chapter 6) is not required. Pursuant to section 7805(f) of the Code, these regulations have been submitted to the Chief Counsel for Advocacy of the Small Business Administration for comment on their impact on small business.
Comments and Requests for a Public Hearing
Before these proposed regulations are adopted as final regulations, consideration will be given to any written (a signed original and eight (8) copies) or electronic copies that are submitted timely to the IRS. The IRS and the Treasury Department request comments on the clarity of the proposed rules and how they can be made easier to understand. All comments will be made available for public inspection and copying at www.regulations.gov or upon request. A public hearing will be scheduled if requested in writing by any person that timely submits written comments. If a public hearing is scheduled, notice of the date, time, and place for the public hearing will be published in the Federal Register.
The principal author of these regulations is Stephen R. Cleary, Office of Associate Chief Counsel (Corporate). However, other personnel from the IRS and the Treasury Department participated in their development.
