REVENUE AFTER PROFITS.
International Revenue Service Prepar
ing Drive on Real Estate.
Investigations conducted by field
deputies of the Internal Revenue Ser
vice indicate that hundreds of tax
payers have neglected, unintentional
ly or otherwise, to include as income
j their returns for 1919, 1920, 19al and
! 1922 profits realized from the sale of
real estate, according to the Bureau
which several weeks ago ordered a
rigid probe to be made of suspected
| evasions of income regulations.
In order to close up the government
tax net, the collector has ordered that
a transcript be made of all doubtful
transfers. A careful investigation
will be made of all these files, to de
termine whether or not the sales in
volved have been reported upon the
income tax returns. It is suggested
that all persons who failed to include
the profit realized from real estate
sales call at the collector's office or file
, amended returns, as it is the policy
I of the revenue department not to as
sert heavy penalties when the disclos
ures of failure to include income are
voluntarily made by taxpayers.
! It is believed that the failure of
many tax payers to include real es
tate profits in their returns was due
i to an erroneous interpretation of the
j income tax laws, and to misleading 1
publicity that was given out prior to
the ruling of the United States supreme
Court, holding that such gains were
taxable income under the revenue
In cases where the taxpayer does
not voluntarily diclose items of income
that were omitted, and where the
gains from real estate sales have not
been reported, it will be necessary to
assert full penalties on all returns
1 where the investigation disclosed the
failure of the tax payer to include real
, estate gains in his income tax returns.
It will be greatlv to each taxpay
! er’s advantage to find if profits from
1 real estate sales were omitted and
j make “correct amended returns” be
; fore the records in each county are
I searched; this will save the taxpayer
heavy penalties and in many cases
