Section 336(e) was enacted as part of the legislation repealing the General Utilities rule and, like an election under section 338(h)(10), is meant to provide taxpayers relief from a potential multiple taxation at the corporate level of the same economic gain which can result when a transfer of appreciated corporate stock is taxed to a corporation without providing a corresponding stepup in the basis of the assets of the corporation.
