(j) Tax treatment of Federal Thrift Savings Fund
(1) In general. For purposes of this title–
(A) the Thrift Savings Fund shall be treated as a trust described in section 401(a) [26 USCS § 401(a)] which is exempt from taxation under section 501(a) [26 USCS § 501(a)];
(B) any contribution to, or distribution from, the Thrift Savings Fund shall be treated in the same manner as contributions to or distributions from such a trust; and
(C) subject to section 401(k)(4)(B) [26 USCS § 401(k)(4)(B)] and any dollar limitation on the application of section 402(e)(3) [26 USCS § 402(e)(3)], contributions to the Thrift Savings Fund shall not be treated as distributed or made available to an employee or Member nor as a contribution made to the Fund by an employee or Member merely because the employee or Member has, under the provisions of subchapter III of chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code [5 USCS §§ 8431 et seq.], and section 8351 of such title 5, an election whether the contribution will be made to the Thrift Savings Fund or received by the employee or Member in cash.
(2) Nondiscrimination requirements. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Thrift Savings Fund is not subject to the nondiscrimination requirements applicable to arrangements described in section 401(k) [26 USCS § 401(k)] or to matching contributions (as described in section 401(m) [26 USCS § 401(m)]), so long as it meets the requirements of this section.
(3) Coordination with Social Security Act. Paragraph (1) shall not be construed to provide that any amount of the employee’s or Member’s basic pay which is contributed to the Thrift Savings Fund shall not be included in the term ‘wages’ for the purposes of section 209 of the Social Security Act [42 USCS § 409] or section 3121(a) of this title.
(4) Definitions. For purposes of this subsection, the terms ‘Member’, ’employee’, and ‘Thrift Savings Fund’ shall have the same respective meanings as when used in subchapter III of chapter 84 of title 5, United States Code [5 USCS §§ 8431 et seq.].
(5) Coordination with other provisions of law. No provision of law not contained in this title shall apply for purposes of determining the treatment under this title of the Thrift Savings Fund or any contribution to, or distribution from, such Fund.
(k) Treatment of certain amounts paid to charity. In the case of any payment which, except for 501(b) of the Ethics in Government Act of 1978 [5 USCS Appx § 501(b)], might be made to any officer or employee of the Federal Government but which is made instead on behalf of such officer or employee to an organization described in section 170(c) [26 USCS § 170(c)]–
(1) such payment shall not be treated as received by such officer or employee for all purposes of this title and for all purposes of any tax law of a State or political subdivision thereof, and
(2) no deduction shall be allowed under any provision of this title (or of any tax law of a State or political subdivision thereof) to such officer or employee by reason of having such payment made to such organization.
For purposes of this subsection, a Senator, a Representative in, or a Delegate or Resident Commissioner to, the Congress shall be treated as an officer or employee of the Federal Government.
(l) Regulations relating to conduit arrangements. The Secretary may prescribe regulations recharacterizing any multiple-party financing transaction as a transaction directly among any 2 or more of such parties where the Secretary determines that such recharacterization is appropriate to prevent avoidance of any tax imposed by this title.
(m) Designation of contract markets. Any designation by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission of a contract market which could not have been made under the law in effect on the day before the date of the enactment of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act of 2000 [enacted Dec. 21, 2000] shall apply for purposes of this title except to the extent provided in regulations prescribed by the Secretary.
