§ 143.6 Election to shorten the period during which certain excess business holdings of private foundations are treated as permitted holdings.
(a) In general. Under section 4943(c)(4)(B)(ii), where the combined holdings on May 26, 1969, of a private foundation and all disqualified persons in any one business enterprise exceed 75 percent of the voting stock or more than a 75 percent interest in the value of all outstanding shares of all classes of stock in such enterprise, and the foundation's holdings on such date do not exceed 95 percent of the voting stock in such enterprise, then such combined holdings must be reduced to 50 percent of the voting stock of such enterprise by the end of a 15-year period beginning on May 26, 1969. However, under section 4943(c)(4)(E), the 15-year period during which such combined holdings in the enterprise must be reduced to 50 percent is to be shortened to a 10-year period, referred to in section 4943(c)(4)(B)(iii), if, at any time before January 1, 1971, one or more individuals:

(2) Who on May 26, 1969, held in aggregate more than 15 percent of the voting stock of the enterprise, make an election in the manner described in paragraph (b).

(b) Manner of making election. The election referred to in paragraph (a) of this section is made by filing two copies of a written statement with the Office of the Assistant Commissioner (Technical), Internal Revenue Service, Washington, DC 20224.
