Powell v. Comm'r. of Int'l. Rev., No. 08-9005

By FindLaw Staff on September 11, 2009 4:37 PM

In an appeal from a tax court's post-trial decision to adopt the Commissioner of Internal Revenue's computation of the taxpayer's estate tax deficiency rather than the taxpayer's own computation, the order is affirmed where: 1) the tax court did not abuse its discretion in computing the amount of the deficiency; and 2) the tax court did not abuse its discretion by adopting the Commissioner's Rule 155 computation.
