Article 2. Deficiency Determinations

Previous errors.—Evidence that the board in 1950 had informed the taxpayer of errors in its 1947 to 1950 tax returns supported a negligence penalty for the years 1950 to 1953 where the same errors were continued in those years; nor could the taxpayer successfully contend that an honest dispute existed as to the legality of a tax on certain transactions for 1950 to 1953 where it did not dispute the imposition in 1950 of a tax on similar transactions for the years 1947 to 1950.
