Nicholas Di Vincenzo, Petitioner, v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue, Respondent, 196 F.2d 218 (3d Cir. 1952)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit - 196 F.2d 218 (3d Cir. 1952) Argued April 9, 1952
Decided May 2, 1952

Petition to Review a Decision of the Tax Court of the United States.

N. Di Vincenzo, pro se.

John J. Kelley, Jr., Washington, D. C. (Ellis N. Slack, Acting Asst. Atty. Gen., on the brief), for respondent.

Before GOODRICH, KALODNER and HASTIE, Circuit Judges.


This is a petition to review a decision of the Tax Court which in turn refused relief to the petitioner on the ground that he had not brought his claim within any exemption or deduction allowed by the tax law. While the court has sympathy with the petitioner as a person it has no authority to create deductions. The decision of the Tax Court was right and will be affirmed.
