On application of the taxpayer, the aggregate of the bases determined under the preceding sentence) of any properties recovered in respect of properties considered under such section 127 (a) as destroyed or seized may be allocated among the properties 80 recovered in such manner as the Secretary or his delegate may determine under regulations prescribed by the Secretary or his delegate, and the amounts so allocated to any such property so recovered shall be the unadjusted basis of such property in lieu of the unadjusted basis of such property determined under the preceding sentence.

(1) (determined without regard to the last sentence thereof), reduced by such part of the gain under section 1333 (3) which is not recognized as provided in section 1033. SEC. 1337. APPLICABLE RULES.

(a) DETERMINATION OF Tax BENEFITS.-The determination as to whether and to what extent an allowable deduction on account of the destruction or seizure of property described in section 127 (a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939 did or did not result in a reduction of any tax of the taxpayer under chapter 1 or 2 of such code shall be made in accordance with regulations prescribed by the Secretary or his delegate.

PART Y-CLAIM OF RIGHT

Sec. 1341. Computation of tax where taxpayer restores substantial

amount held under claim of right. Sec. 1342. Computation of tax where taxpayer recovers substantial

amount held by another under claim of right. SEC. 1341. COMPUTATION OF TAX WHERE TAXPAYER RESTORES SUB.

STANTIAL AMOUNT HELD UNDER CLAIM OF RIGHT. (a) GENERAL RULE.-If

(1) an item was included in gross income for a prior taxable year (or years) because it appeared that the taxpayer had an unrestricted right to such item;

(2) a deduction is allowable for the taxable year because it was established after the close of such prior taxable year (or years) that the taxpayer did not have an unrestricted right to such item or to a portion of such item; and

(3) the amount of such deduction exceeds $3,000, then the tax imposed by this chapter for the taxable year shall be the lesser of the following:

(4) the tax for the taxable year computed with such deduction; or (5) an amount equal to

(A) the tax for the taxable year computed without such deduction, minus

(B) the decrease in tax under this chapter (or the corresponding provisions of prior revenue laws) for the prior taxable year (or years) which would result solely from the exclusion of such item (or portion thereof) from gross income for such prior taxable year

(or years). For purposes of paragraph (5) (B), the corresponding provisions of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939 shall be chapter 1 of such code (other than subchapter E, relating to self-employment income) and subchapter E of chapter 2 of such code. (b) SPECIAL RULES.

(1) If the decrease in tax ascertained under subsection (a) (5) (B) exceeds the tax imposed by this chapter for the taxable year (computed without the deduction) such excess shall be considered to be a payment of tax on the last day prescribed by law for the payment of tax for the taxable year, and shall be refunded or credited in the same manner as if it were an overpayment for such taxable year.

(2) Subsection (a) does not apply to any deduction allowable with respect to an item which was included in gross income by reason of the sale or other disposition of stock in trade of the taxpayer (or other property of a kind which would properly have been included in the inventory of the taxpayer if on hand at the close of the prior taxable year) or property held by the taxpayer primarily for sale to customers in the ordinary course of his trade or business. This paragraph shall not apply if the deduction arises out of refunds or repayments with respect to rates made by a regulated public utility (as defined in section 1503 (c) without regard to paragraph (2) thereof) if such refunds or repayments are required to be made by the Government, political subdivision, agency, or instrumentality referred to in such section, or by an order of a court, or are made in settlement of litigation or under threat or imminence of litigation. This paragraph shall not apply if the deduction arises out of payments or repayments made pursuant to a price redetermination provision in a subcontract entered into before January 1, 1958, between persons other than those bearing the relationship set forth in section 267 (b), if the subcontract containing the price redetermination provision is subject to statutory renegotiation and section 1481 (relating to mitigation of effect of renegotiation of Government contracts) does not apply to such payment or repayment solely because such payment or repayment is not paid or repaid to the United States or any agency thereof.

(3) If the tax imposed by this chapter for the taxable year is the amount determined under subsection (a) (5), then the deduction referred to in subsection (a) (2) shall not be taken into account for

any purpose of this subtitle other than this section. SEC. 1342. COMPUTATION OF TAX WHERE TAXPAYER RECOVERS

SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT HELD BY ANOTHER UNDER

CLAIM OF RIGHT. (a) GENERAL RULE.-If

(1) an item was deducted from gross income for a prior taxable year (or years) because it appeared that another person held an unrestricted right to such item as a result of a court decision in a patent infringement suit (whether or not the taxpayer is a party to such suit); and

(2) gross income is increased for the taxable year because it was established after the close of such prior taxable year (or years) that such other person did not have an unrestricted right to such item or to a portion of such item because of the subsequent reversal of such court decision on the ground that such decision was induced by fraud or undue influence; and

(3) the amount of such increase in gross income exceeds $3,000, then the tax imposed by this chapter for the taxable year shall be the lesser of the following:

(4) the tax for the taxable year computed with the gross income so increased; or (5) an amount equal to

(A) the tax for the taxable year computed without such increase in gross income, plus

(B) the increase in tax (including interest) under this chapter (or the corresponding provisions of prior revenue laws) for the prior taxable year (or years) which would result solely from the elimination of such item (or portion thereof) as a deduction from

gross income for such prior taxable year (or years). (b) SPECIAL RULE.—For purposes of subsection (a) (5) (B) interest shall be computed from the due date of the return for such prior taxable year to the due date of the return for the taxable year.
