(b) Underpayment due to inconsistent treatment assessed as math error

Any underpayment of tax by a partner by reason of failing to comply with the requirements of subsection (a) shall be assessed and collected in the same manner as if such underpayment were on account of a mathematical or clerical error appearing on the partner's return.

subsections (a) and (b) shall not apply to such item.

(B) elects to have this paragraph apply with respect to that item.
