Title: Extensions of Time to Elect Method for Determining Allowable Loss.

OMB Number: 1545-1774.

Regulation Project Number: T.D. 9187.

Abstract: Regulations under sections 337(d) and 1502 of the Internal Revenue Code (Code) disallow certain losses recognized on sales of subsidiary stock by members of a consolidated group. These regulations apply to corporations filing consolidated returns, both during and after the period of affiliation, and also affect purchasers of the stock of members of a consolidated group. The information with respect to § 1.337(d)-2(c)(1) and (3) is necessary to ensure that loss is not disallowed under § 1.337(d)-2(a) and basis is not reduced under § 1.337(d)-2(b) to the extent the taxpayer establishes that the loss or basis is not attributable to the recognition of built-in gain on the disposition of an asset. The information with respect to § 1.1502-32(b)(4)(vii)(C) is necessary to allow the taxpayer to amend an election that would benefit the taxpayer, i.e., to amend its waiver under § 1.1502-32(b)(4), so that it may use its acquired subsidiary's losses.
