A corporation converted its wholly owned subsidiary to a disregarded entity via a check-the-box election. At the time, the subsidiary was insolvent. The parent corporation sought a worthless stock loss under Code §165(g)(1).

At issue is Code §332 which will not allow a parent corporation shareholder to recognize gain or loss on liquidating distributions of an 80%-or-more owned subsidiary. The corporation sought a private letter ruling to the effect that Code §332 did not apply.
