A care ful investigation will be made of ail these files, to determine whether or not the sales involved have been reported upon the income tax returns. Collector Evans suggested that ail persons who failed to include the profit realized from real estate sales call at his office,tr ile amended returns, as it is the policy of the revenue department not to assert heavy penalties wbtn the disclosures of failure to include income are voluntarily made by taxpayers. "It is my belief that the failute of many taxpayers to include real estate profits in their returns «tas due to an erroneous interpretation of the income tax laws, and to mis.* hading publicity that wàs giVçm out prior to the ruling of the Unit» ed States supreme court, hoIcRrg that such gains were taxable income under the revenue laws';" Collector Evans stated. In cases where the taxpayer does not voluntarily disclose items of income that were omitted, and where the gains from real estate silcs have not been reported, the cjllector said that it would be nec essary to asserf full penalties.
