          (1) Payments to united states virgin islands and

                  (A) United states virgin islands.--The 
                Secretary of the Treasury shall pay to the 
                United States Virgin Islands amounts equal to 
                the loss in revenues to the United States 
                Virgin Islands by reason of the provisions of 
                this title. Such amounts shall be determined by 
                the Secretary of the Treasury based on 
                information provided by the government of the 
                United States Virgin Islands.
                  (B) Puerto rico.--The Secretary of the 
                Treasury shall pay to Puerto Rico amounts 
                estimated by the Secretary of the Treasury as 
                being equal to the aggregate benefits that 
                would have been provided to residents of Puerto 
                Rico by reason of the provisions of this title 
                if a mirror code tax system had been in effect 
                in Puerto Rico. The preceding sentence shall 
                not apply with respect to Puerto Rico unless 
                Puerto Rico has a plan, which has been approved 
                by the Secretary of the Treasury, under which 
                Puerto Rico will promptly distribute such 
                payments to its residents.
