                        principal place of abode as the taxpayer for 
                        more than one-half of the portion of such year 
                        before the date of the kidnapping,
                shall be treated as meeting the requirement of section 
                32(c)(3)(A)(ii) with respect to a taxpayer for all 
                taxable years ending during the period that the 
                individual is kidnapped.

                and (C) shall cease to apply as of the first taxable 
                year of the taxpayer beginning after the calendar year 
                in which there is a determination that the child is 
                dead (or, if earlier, in which the child would have 
                attained age 18).''
