    (A) In general. Section 301.7701-2(c)(2)(i) (relating to certain 
wholly owned entities) does not apply to taxes imposed under Subtitle 
C--Employment Taxes and Collection of Income Tax (Chapters 21, 22, 23,

301.7701-2(c)(2)(i) also applies to taxes imposed under Subtitle A, 
including Chapter 2--Tax on Self Employment Income. The owner of an 
entity that is treated in the same manner as a sole proprietorship 
under Sec.  301.7701-2(a) will be subject to tax on self-employment 
income.

Sec.  301.7701-2, Sec.  301.7701-2(c)(2)(i) (relating to certain wholly 
owned entities) does not apply for purposes of--
    (1) Federal tax liabilities imposed by Chapter 49 of the Internal 
Revenue Code;
    (2) Collection of tax imposed by Chapter 49 of the Internal Revenue 
Code; and
    (3) Claims of a credit or refund related to the tax imposed by 
Chapter 49 of the Internal Revenue Code.
