SUMMARY: This document contains corrections to final regulations and 
removal of temporary regulations (TD 9622) that were published in the 
Federal Register on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 (78 FR 39984). The final 
regulations provide necessary guidance regarding the accelerated 
inclusion of deferred discharge of indebtedness (also known as 
cancellation of debt (COD)) income (deferred COD income) and the 
accelerated deduction of deferred original issue discount (OID) 
(deferred OID deductions) under section 108(i)(5)(D) (acceleration 
rules), and the calculation of earnings and profits as a result of an 
election under section 108(i). In addition, these regulations provide 
rules applicable to all taxpayers regarding deferred OID deductions 
under section 108(i) as a result of a reacquisition of an applicable 
debt instrument by an issuer or related party.

DATES: This correction is effective on August 9, 2013 and applicable on 
or after July 2, 2013.
