1. A stockholder who has received his pro rata share of the corporate assets upon dissolution of the corporation and has been compelled by assessment under § 280(a)(1) of the Revenue Act of 1926 to pay the whole of income and profits taxes owed by the corporation, is entitled to contribution from his co-stockholders who have not been assessed for the taxes, and may maintain a bill therefor.
