                        disaster-relief distribution may, at any time 
                        during the 5-year period beginning on the day 
                        after the date on which such distribution was 
                        made, make one or more contributions to an

                        in an aggregate amount not to exceed the amount 
                        of such distribution. The dollar limitations 
                        otherwise applicable to contributions to 
                        individual retirement plans shall not apply to 
                        any contribution made pursuant to the preceding 
                        sentence. No deduction shall be allowed for any 
                        contribution pursuant to this clause.

                        relief distribution' means any distribution to 
                        an individual who has sustained a loss in 
                        excess of $100 as a result of a major disaster

                                distribution does not exceed the amount 
                                of such loss and is not compensated for

                        For purposes of subclause (II), the amount of 
                        any loss shall be determined using the greater 
                        of the fair market value of the property on the 
                        day before the date of such disaster or the 
                        adjusted basis of the property as provided in
