If property is received by a corporation in a distribution in complete liquidation of another corporation (within the meaning of R.S. 47:133 F(2)), then, except as provided in Subsection B(2) of this Section, the basis of the property in the hands of the distributee shall be the same as it would be in the hands of the transferor. If property is received by a corporation in a transfer to which R.S. 47:133 F(3) applies, and if Subsection B(2) of this Section does not apply, then the basis of the property in the hands of the transferee shall be the same as it would be in the hands of the transferor.

(2) Exception. If property is received by a corporation in a distribution in complete liquidation of another corporation (within the meaning of R.S. 47:133 F(2), and if,

(b) stock of the distributing corporation possessing at least 80% of the total combined voting power of all classes of stock entitled to vote, and at least 80% of the total number of shares of all other classes of stock (except nonvoting stock which is limited and preferred as to dividends), was acquired by the distributee by purchase (as defined in Subsection B(3) of this Section) during a period of not more than 12 months, then the basis of the property in the hands of the distributee shall be the adjusted basis of the stock with respect to which the distribution was made. For purposes of the preceding sentence, under regulations prescribed by the collector, proper adjustment in the adjusted basis of any stock shall be made for any distribution made to the distributee with respect to such stock before the adoption of the plan of liquidation, for any money received, for any liabilities assumed or subject to which the property was received, and for other items.

(3) Purchase defined. For purposes of Subsection B(2)(b) of this Section, the term "purchase" means any acquisition of stock, but only if,
