SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Treatment of Distributions to Foreign Persons Under Sections 
367(e)(1) and 367(e)(2).
    OMB Number: 1545-1487.
    Form Number: Regulation Project Number: REG-209827-96 and REG-
111672-99.
    Abstract: Section 367(e)(1) provides that, to the extent provided 
in regulations, a domestic corporation must recognize gain on a section 
355 distribution of stock or securities to a foreign person. Section 
367(e)(2) provides that section 337(a) and (b)(1) does not apply to a 
section 332 distribution by a domestic corporation to a foreign parent 
corporation that owns 80 percent of the domestic liquidating 
corporation (as described in section 337(c)). Section 6038B(a) requires 
a U.S. person who transfers property to a foreign corporation in an 
exchange described in sections 332 or 355, among other sections, to 
furnish to the Secretary of the Treasury certain information with 
respect to the transfer, as provided in regulations.
    The final regulations under section 367(e)(1) require gain 
recognition only for distributions of the stock or securities of 
foreign corporations to foreign persons. The final regulations under 
section 367(e)(2) generally require gain recognition when a domestic 
corporation liquidates into its foreign parent corporation; the 
regulations generally do not require gain recognition when a foreign 
corporation liquidates into its foreign parent corporation.
    Document (TD 9704) contains final and temporary regulations 
relating to the consequences to U.S. and foreign persons for failing to 
satisfy reporting obligations associated with certain transfers of 
property to foreign corporations in nonrecognition exchanges. TD 9704 
permits transferors to remedy ``not willful'' failures to file, and 
``not willful'' failures to comply with the terms of, liquidation 
documents required under section 367(e)(2). In addition, it modifies 
the reporting obligations under section 6038B associated with transfers 
that are subject to section 367(e)(2). Further, TD 9704 provides 
similar rules for certain transfers that are subject to section 367(a). 
The regulations are necessary to update the rules that apply when a 
U.S. or foreign person fails to file required documents or statements 
or satisfy reporting obligations. The regulations affect U.S. and 
foreign persons that transfer property to foreign corporations in 
certain non-recognition exchanges.
    Current Actions: There are no changes being made to the regulations 
at this time.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Affected Public: Business or other for-profit organizations.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 414.
    Estimated Time per Respondent: 5 hours, 58 minutes.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 2,471 hours.
    The following paragraph applies to all of the collections of 
information covered by this notice.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information unless the collection of 
information displays a valid OMB control number. Books or records 
relating to a collection of information must be retained as long as 
their contents may become material in the administration of any 
internal revenue law. Generally, tax returns and tax return information 
are confidential, as required by 26 U.S.C. 6103.
    Request for Comments: Comments submitted in response to this notice 
will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. All 
comments will become a matter of public record. Comments are invited 
on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the

agency's estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c)

be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated
