1

The contentions raised by the taxpayers in their brief on appeal were fully considered by the Tax Court1 which found no merit in any of them. It is apparent that the taxpayers are laboring under a misconception as to the burden of proof. The appeal is wholly without merit, and oral argument would be fruitless.

2

The decision of the Tax Court is affirmed.

3

Affirmed.
