Morton Kornblum filed a petition to redetermine his deficiency and addition to tax for tax year 1990. The Tax Court dismissed it for failure to state a claim. He appeals pro se.1 We have jurisdiction under 26 U.S.C. Sec. 7482 and affirm.


The petition challenges a $4,769 deficiency and a $954 addition to tax imposed by the IRS for tax year 1990. He claimed an overpayment of $11,820,000. His amended petition claimed an overpayment of $15,634,000. He based these claims on money owing from his previous unsuccessful suits against the IRS.


The Tax Court properly dismissed Kornblum's petition for failure to state a claim because he sought to dispute his 1990 tax year deficiency on grounds not relevant to that tax year. 26 U.S.C. Secs. 6213(a), 6214(b); First Sec. Bank, N.A. v. Commissioner, 592 F.2d 1046, 1048 (9th Cir.1979).




The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for decision without oral argument. Fed.R.App.P. 34(a); Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4
