Editorial Notes

2014—Subsec. (c). Pub. L. 113–295, which directed substitution of “year.” for “ ‘year’ ” and all that followed, was executed by substituting “year.” for “year, except that the first return period shall be the 6-month period beginning on January 1, 1977, and ending on June 30, 1977.”, to reflect the probable intent of Congress.
