U.S. Supreme Court

United States v. Pomponio, 429 U.S. 10 (1976)

United States v. Pomponio

No. 75-1667

Decided October 12, 1976

429 U.S. 10


At respondents' trial on a charge of willfully filing false income tax returns in violation of § 7206(1) of the Internal Revenue Code, the District Court adequately instructed the jury on willfulness in accordance with the standard that willfulness in the context of § 7206 and related statutes simply means a voluntary, intentional violation of a known legal duty, United States v. Bishop, 412 U. S. 346, and hence an additional instruction on good faith was unnecessary.

Certiorari granted; 528 F.2d 247, reversed and remanded.
