Retail dealers in furs are required to collect the tax on the sale of each fur and to file returns and remit the tax periodically. Monthly returns were required through June, 1953, and quarterly returns thereafter.
The defendant, who conducted a retail fur store with his brother, filed 16 returns during the years 1953, 1954, and 1955, and paid the tax which the returns showed to be due. Each of the returns was false in that each of them substantially understated the amount of the sales and the amount of tax which was due. Defendant knew that each return was false and he intended that each return should be false.
The total tax due for the
years 1953, 1954 and 1955
The total tax reported and
remitted for this period
The deficiency was $ 9,728.52
