SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Treatment of Dual Consolidated Losses. OMB Number: 1545–1083. Regulation Project Number: TD 8434. Abstract: Internal Revenue Code section 1503(d) denies use of the losses of one domestic corporation by another affiliated domestic corporation where the loss corporation is also subject to the income tax of another country.

The regulation also requires separate accounting for a dual consolidated loss where the dual resident corporation files a consolidated return.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 500. Estimated Number of Responses: 896. Estimated Time per Response: 1 hr., 49 minutes. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,620.
