Patient discussion about duplication

Q. what is the cause for double vision

A. Double vision, or diplopia, as it's called, may be due to many conditions, including disorders of the muscles of the eye (extra-ocular muscles) and the nerves controlling them, disorders of the eye ball (enlarged eyeball as in Graves' ), and sometimes disorders of vision.

Diplopia may manifest important conditions, so consulting a doctor (e.g. neurologist or ophthalmologist) may be wise.

Q. I have fibromyalgia and am having terrible vision problems...double, blurred, feel off blance.Is this common?

A. Blurry vision is not a usual symptom in fibromyalgia. If you are experiencing this on a permenant basis you should see a doctor- either a neurologist or an ophthalmologist to rule out other vision conditions that might be causing this.

The new regulations also include a substitute asset rule that suspends a member's loss recognized on an asset disposition (other than of a member's stock) when the member's basis in the disposed asset was determined by reference to a member's basis in stock for which there was a duplicated loss, and immediately after the disposition, the subsidiary is a group member.
Because the group has been allowed to take the subsidiary's deductions and losses as they are recognized, any duplicated losses inherent in the subsidiary's stock should be eliminated.
Under an important rebuttable presumption in -35T(c)(4)(i), all deductions and losses are first attributable to the duplicated loss that gave rise to a suspended stock loss.
The proposed regulations also include a substitute-asset rule, in which a member's loss on an asset disposition other than S stock would be suspended if(1) the member's asset basis was determined by reference to the basis of an S, for which there was a duplicated loss, and (2) immediately after the transaction, S remained a group member.
The proposed regulations contain a rebuttable presumption that all deductions and losses are attributable first to the duplicated loss that gave rise to a suspended stock loss.
This rule would apply if (1) a group recognizes an allowable loss on an S stock disposition that generates a duplicated loss, (2) as a result of that disposition (or another), S leaves the group and (3) within the 10-year period beginning on the date that S left, its loss is reimported to the group.
For purposes of this item, only the duplicated loss factor (DLF) will be considered, because this was the factor invalidated by the Federal Circuit in Rite Aid.
The Court of Appeals explained that "the duplicated loss factor distorts rather than reflects the tax liability of consolidated groups and contravenes Congress' otherwise uniform treatment of limiting deductions for the subsidiary's losses.
The ELF attempts to disallow losses that could be duplicated at a later date.
the basis reduction cannot exceed the sum of the EGADs, PINAs and duplicated loss).
The duplicated loss portion of the ELF cannot be minimized through the use of the reattribution of losses to the common parent under Regs.
