On August 16, Year 2, A enters into an offsetting non-section 1256 position and makes a valid election to treat the straddle as a section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle. A continues to hold both positions of the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle on January 1, Year 3. Under these circumstances, A will recognize the $500 loss on the section 1256 contract that existed prior to establishing the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle on the last business day of Year 2 because the section 1256 contract would be treated as sold on December 31, Year 2, (the last business day of the taxable year) under section 1256(a). The loss recognized in Year 2 will be treated as 60% long-term capital loss and 40% shortterm capital loss.

As of the close of the day on August 22, Year 2, there is $400 of unrealized short-term capital gain on the non-section 1256 position. On August 23, Year 2, A enters into an offsetting section 1256 contract and makes a valid election to treat the straddle as a section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle. On September 10, Year 2, A closes out the section 1256 contract at a $500 loss and disposes of the non-section 1256 position, realizing an $875 gain. Under these circumstances, A has $400 of short-term capital gain attributable to the non-section 1256 position prior to the day the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle was established. The $400 unrealized gain earned on the non-section 1256 position will be recognized on September 10, Year 2, when the non-section 1256 position is disposed of. The gain will be short-term capital gain. See § 1.1092(b)–2T for rules concerning holding period. On September 10, Year 2, the gain of $875 on the non-section 1256 position will be reduced to $475 to take into account the $400 of unrealized gain when the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle was established. The $475 gain on the nonsection 1256 position will be offset by the $500 loss on the section 1256 contract.

0
1. Revising the heading of Sec.  1.1092(b)-6T.
0
2. Adding a sentence at the end of the introductory text of paragraph 
(b) and revising Example 1 and Example 2 of paragraph (b).
0
3. Revising paragraph (c).
    The amendments read as follows:


Sec.  1.1092(b)-6T  Mixed straddles; accrued gain and loss associated 
with a position that becomes part of a section 1092(b)(2) identified 
mixed straddle.

    * * *
    (b) * * * The following examples assume that this section applies 
to identified mixed straddles established after August 1, Year 2.

    Example 1. On August 13, Year 2, A enters into a section 1256 
contract. As of the close of the day on August 15, Year 2, there is 
$500 of unrealized loss on the section 1256 contract. On August 16, 
Year 2, A enters into an offsetting non-section 1256 position and 
makes a valid election to treat the straddle as a section 1092(b)(2) 
identified mixed straddle. A continues to hold both positions of the 
section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle on January 1, Year 3. 
Under these circumstances, A will recognize the $500 loss on the 
section 1256 contract that existed prior to establishing the section 
1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle on the last business day of 
Year 2 because the section 1256 contract would be treated as sold on 
December 31, Year 2, (the last business day of the taxable year) 
under section 1256(a). The loss recognized in Year 2 will be treated 
as 60% long-term capital loss and 40% short-term capital loss. All 
gains and losses occurring after the section 1092(b)(2) identified 
mixed straddle is established are accounted for under the applicable 
provisions in Sec.  1.1092(b)-3T.
    Example 2.  On September 3, Year 1, A enters into a non-section 
1256 position. As of the close of the day on August 22, Year 2, 
there is $400 of unrealized short-term capital gain on the non-
section 1256 position. On August 23, Year 2, A enters into an 
offsetting section 1256 contract and makes a valid election to treat 
the straddle as a section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle. On 
September 10, Year 2, A closes out the section 1256 contract at a 
$500 loss and disposes of the non-section 1256 position, realizing 
an $875 gain. Under these circumstances, A has $400 of short-term 
capital gain attributable to the non-section 1256 position prior to 
the day the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddle was 
established. The $400 unrealized gain earned on the non-section 1256 
position will be recognized on September 10, Year 2, when the non-
section 1256 position is disposed of. The gain will be short-term 
capital gain. See Sec.  1.1092(b)-2T for rules concerning holding 
period. On September 10, Year 2, the gain of $875 on the non-section 
1256 position will be reduced to $475 to take into account the $400 
of unrealized gain when the section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed 
straddle was established. The $475 gain on the non-section 1256 
position will be offset by the $500 loss on the section 1256 
contract. The net loss of $25 from the straddle will be treated as 
60% long-term capital loss and 40% short-term capital loss because 
it is attributable to the section 1256 contract.

    (c) Effective/applicability date. The rules of this section apply 
to all section 1092(b)(2) identified mixed straddles established after 
the date of publication of the Treasury decision adopting these rules 
as final regulations in the Federal Register.
