ment of $600 in income tax for 1940. The $750 increase in income tax for 1940 which was determined under section 3807 may be assessed as if on September 15, 1944 one year remained before the expiration of the period of limitations upon assessment of income tax for 1940. The $600 overpayment of income tax for 1940 may then be credited against the assessment of $750 increase in income tax for 1940. The remaining $150 of such increase in income tax may be collected under the law and regulations applicable to the collection of such tax.

The crediting of the above $600 overpayment of income tax against the above $750 increase in income tax is, moreover, the allowance of a credit under a determination in respect of a tax imposed by chapter 1 within the meaning of section 3807 (b) (1) so as to serve as the basis for a further adjustment in excess profits tax for 1940 under the provisions of section 3807.

$ 473.7 Application to affiliated groups. Section 3807 is applicable to affiliated groups which filed consolidated returns, and operates whether the determination specified in section 3807 (b) (1) and in $ 473.4 is made in respect of a tax reported on the basis of a consolidated return or in respect of a tax reported on the basis of a separate return. In the case of a member of an affiliated group, the words "any other tax of the taxpayer" are to include any other tax imposed by chapter 1 or chapter 2 upon any other member of the group, whether such tax is reported on the basis of a consolidated return or on the basis of a separate return. Thus, if a deficiency is assessed, or a refund allowed, in respect of a tax reported on the basis of a consolidated return, adjustments under section 3807 may be made in respect of the other taxes of the affiliated group reported on the basis of a consolidated return and also in respect of the taxes of all the members of such group not reported upon the basis of such a consolidated return. Similarly, if the deficiency or refund is in respect of a tax of a member of an affiliated group not reported on the basis of a consolidated return, adjustments may be made not only in other taxes of such member, but also in any tax which such group reported upon the basis of a consolidated return and in any tax of any other member of the group which was reported on the basis of a separate return. These adjustments may be made even though the several taxable periods involved are not

the same if the taxable year for which the adjustments are made coincides in whole or in part with the taxable year for which the deficiency was assessed or the refund allowed.

The application of section 3807 to affiliated groups may be illustrated by the following example:

Example: Corporation X, which makes its tax returns upon the basis of the calendar year, becomes a member of an affiliated group on July 1, 1940. Such group likewise makes its returns on the basis of the calendar year. A consolidated excess profits tax return was filed for the group for the year 1940 on March 15, 1941. Likewise, Corporation X filed an excess profits tax return for the short taxable year January 1 through June 30, 1940, and an income tax return for the calendar year 1940. On December 1, 1945 Corporation X is allowed a refund of income tax for 1940 attributable to a casualty loss, Proper adjustments, though barred under other provisions of law or rules of law, may be made under section 3807 in the consolidated excess profits tax (1) to reflect such loss, (2) to reflect any other deductions, credits, allowances, or adjustments which are limited to or by net income or the amount of income from property, and (3) to reflect the proper deduction for Corporation X's income tax in computing consolidated excess profits net income. Similarly, such adjustments may be made in Corporation X's separate excess profits tax return for the short taxable year January 1 through June 30, 1940. Adjustments may likewise be made in the taxes of other members of the group which were reported on the basis of separate returns. Any adjustment to taxes of other members of the affiliated group reported on the basis of separate returns which flow from the adjustments made in the consolidated excess profits tax, or from adjustments made to Corporation X's taxes reported on the basis of separate returns, may likewise be made. All such adjustments may be made as if the period of limitations upon assessment or upon allowance of refunds, as the case may be, did not expire until December 1, 1946.

If a deficiency or refund is assessed or allowed in respect of a tax reported on the basis of a consolidated return, appropriate adjustments can be made in any tax of the affiliated group reported on the basis of a consolidated return, or in any tax of any member of such group reported on the basis of a separate return.
