Presidential Determination Concerning Waiver of Section 901(j) of the Internal Revenue Code With Respect to Libya
DATES: Presidential Determination 2005-12 was issued December 10, 2004.
On December 10, 2004, the President issued Presidential Determination 200512. Presidential Determination 200512 waives the application of section 901(j)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code with respect to Libya. Section 901(j)(1) imposes restrictions in the case of income and taxes attributable to certain countries. Pursuant to section 901(j)(5), the President may waive the restrictions of section 901(j)(1) if the President determines that such a waiver is in the national interest of the United States and will expand trade and investment opportunities for U.S. companies in such country, and the President reports to Congress his intention to grant the waiver and the reason for the determination. These statutory conditions were fulfilled by Presidential Determination 200448 and the report to Congress issued on October 6, 2004. See 69 FR 61703.
