(2) multiplied by—
(A) in the case of a corporation, the percentage which is equal to the highest rate of tax specified under section 11 (b), or
(B) in the case of an individual, a fraction the numerator of which is the tax against which the credit under section 901 (a) is taken and the denominator of which is the taxpayer’s entire taxable income.

(c) Foreign income definitions and special rules
For purposes of this section—
(1) Foreign oil and gas extraction income
The term “foreign oil and gas extraction income” means the taxable income derived from sources without the United States and its possessions from—
(A) the extraction (by the taxpayer or any other person) of minerals from oil or gas wells, or
(B) the sale or exchange of assets used by the taxpayer in the trade or business described in subparagraph (A).
Such term does not include any dividend or interest income which is passive income (as defined in section 904 (d)(2)(A)).

to the extent such dividends, interest, amounts, or distributive share is attributable to foreign oil and gas extraction income, or to foreign oil related income, as the case may be; except that interest described in subparagraph (A) shall not be taken into account in computing foreign oil and gas extraction income but shall be taken into account in computing foreign oil-related income.
(4) Recapture of foreign oil and gas losses by recharacterizing later combined foreign oil and gas income
(A) In general
The combined foreign oil and gas income of a taxpayer for a taxable year (determined without regard to this paragraph) shall be reduced—
(i) first by the amount determined under subparagraph (B), and
(ii) then by the amount determined under subparagraph (C).
The aggregate amount of such reductions shall be treated as income (from sources without the United States) which is not combined foreign oil and gas income.
(B) Reduction for pre-2009 foreign oil extraction losses
The reduction under this paragraph shall be equal to the lesser of—
(i) the foreign oil and gas extraction income of the taxpayer for the taxable year (determined without regard to this paragraph), or
(ii) the excess of—
(I) the aggregate amount of foreign oil extraction losses for preceding taxable years beginning after December 31, 1982, and before January 1, 2009, over
(II) so much of such aggregate amount as was recharacterized under this paragraph (as in effect before and after the date of the enactment of the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008) for preceding taxable years beginning after December 31, 1982.
(C) Reduction for post-2008 foreign oil and gas losses
The reduction under this paragraph shall be equal to the lesser of—
(i) the combined foreign oil and gas income of the taxpayer for the taxable year (determined without regard to this paragraph), reduced by an amount equal to the reduction under subparagraph (A) for the taxable year, or
(ii) the excess of—
(I) the aggregate amount of foreign oil and gas losses for preceding taxable years beginning after December 31, 2008, over
(II) so much of such aggregate amount as was recharacterized under this paragraph for preceding taxable years beginning after December 31, 2008.
(D) Foreign oil and gas loss defined
(i) In general For purposes of this paragraph, the term “foreign oil and gas loss” means the amount by which—
(I) the gross income for the taxable year from sources without the United States and its possessions (whether or not the taxpayer chooses the benefits of this subpart for such taxable year) taken into account in determining the combined foreign oil and gas income for such year, is exceeded by
(II) the sum of the deductions properly apportioned or allocated thereto.
(ii) Net operating loss deduction not taken into account For purposes of clause (i), the net operating loss deduction allowable for the taxable year under section 172 (a) shall not be taken into account.
(iii) Expropriation and casualty losses not taken into account For purposes of clause (i), there shall not be taken into account—

(II) any loss for the taxable year which arises from fire, storm, shipwreck, or other casualty, or from theft,

(d) Disregard of certain posted prices, etc.
For purposes of this chapter, in determining the amount of taxable income in the case of foreign oil and gas extraction income, if the oil or gas is disposed of, or is acquired other than from the government of a foreign country, at a posted price (or other pricing arrangement) which differs from the fair market value for such oil or gas, such fair market value shall be used in lieu of such posted price (or other pricing arrangement).
[(e) Repealed. Pub. L. 101–508, title XI, § 11801(a)(32),Nov. 5, 1990, 104 Stat. 1388–521]
(f) Carryback and carryover of disallowed credits
(1) In general
If the amount of the foreign oil and gas taxes paid or accrued during any taxable year exceeds the limitation provided by subsection (a) for such taxable year (hereinafter in this subsection referred to as the “unused credit year”), such excess shall be deemed to be foreign oil and gas taxes paid or accrued in the first preceding taxable year and in any of the first 10 succeeding taxable year, [2] in that order and to the extent not deemed tax paid or accrued in a prior taxable year by reason of the limitation imposed by paragraph (2). Such amount deemed paid or accrued in any taxable year may be availed of only as a tax credit and not as a deduction and only if the taxpayer for such year chooses to have the benefits of this subpart as to taxes paid or accrued for that year to foreign countries or possessions.
(2) Limitation
The amount of the unused foreign oil and gas taxes which under paragraph (1) may be deemed paid or accrued in any preceding or succeeding taxable year shall not exceed the lesser of—
(A) the amount by which the limitation provided by subsection (a) for such taxable year exceeds the sum of—
(i) the foreign oil and gas taxes paid or accrued during such taxable year, plus
(ii) the amounts of the foreign oil and gas taxes which by reason of this subsection are deemed paid or accrued in such taxable year and are attributable to taxable years preceding the unused credit year; or
(B) the amount by which the limitation provided by section 904 for such taxable year exceeds the sum of—
(i) the taxes paid or accrued (or deemed to have been paid under section 902 or 960) to all foreign countries and possessions of the United States during such taxable year,
(ii) the amount of such taxes which were deemed paid or accrued in such taxable year under section 904 (c) and which are attributable to taxable years preceding the unused credit year, plus
(iii) the amount of the foreign oil and gas taxes which by reason of this subsection are deemed paid or accrued in such taxable year and are attributable to taxable years preceding the unused credit year.
(3) Special rules
(A) In the case of any taxable year which is an unused credit year under this subsection and which is an unused credit year under section 904 (c), the provisions of this subsection shall be applied before section 904 (c).
(B) For purposes of determining the amount of taxes paid or accrued in any taxable year which may be deemed paid or accrued in a preceding or succeeding taxable year under section 904 (c), any tax deemed paid or accrued in such preceding or succeeding taxable year under this subsection shall be considered to be tax paid or accrued in such preceding or succeeding taxable year.
(4) Transition rules for pre-2009 and 2009 disallowed credits
(A) Pre-2009 credits
In the case of any unused credit year beginning before January 1, 2009, this subsection shall be applied to any unused oil and gas extraction taxes carried from such unused credit year to a year beginning after December 31, 2008—
(i) by substituting “oil and gas extraction taxes” for “foreign oil and gas taxes” each place it appears in paragraphs (1), (2), and (3), and
(ii) by computing, for purposes of paragraph (2)(A), the limitation under subparagraph (A) for the year to which such taxes are carried by substituting “foreign oil and gas extraction income” for “foreign oil and gas income” in subsection (a).
(B) 2009 credits
In the case of any unused credit year beginning in 2009, the amendments made to this subsection by the Energy Improvement and Extension Act of 2008 shall be treated as being in effect for any preceding year beginning before January 1, 2009, solely for purposes of determining how much of the unused foreign oil and gas taxes for such unused credit year may be deemed paid or accrued in such preceding year.

Written determinations for this section

These documents, sometimes referred to as "Private Letter Rulings", are taken from the IRS Written Determinations page; the IRS also publishes a fuller explanation of what they are and what they mean. The collection is updated (at our end) daily. It appears that the IRS updates their listing every Friday.

Note that the IRS often titles documents in a very plain-vanilla, duplicative way. Do not assume that identically-titled documents are the same, or that a later document supersedes another with the same title. That is unlikely to be the case.

Release dates appear exactly as we get them from the IRS. Some are clearly wrong, but we have made no attempt to correct them, as we have no way guess correctly in all cases, and do not wish to add to the confusion.

We truncate results at 20000 items. After that, you're on your own.

This is a list of parts within the Code of Federal Regulations for which this US Code section provides rulemaking authority.

This list is taken from the Parallel Table of Authorities and Rules provided by GPO [Government Printing Office].

It is not guaranteed to be accurate or up-to-date, though we do refresh the database weekly. More limitations on accuracy are described at the GPO site.
