United States v. Pelzer

No. 393

Argued January 7, 1941

Decided March 3, 1941

312 U.S. 399


1. Decided in part upon authority of Helvering v. Hutchings, ante, p. 312 U. S. 393. P. 312 U. S. 401.

2. The revenue laws are to be construed in the light of their general purpose to establish a nationwide scheme of taxation uniform in its application.

P. 312 U. S. 402.

3. Gifts in trust to grandchildren, limited to those who survive a ten-year accumulation period and attain twenty-one years of age, are gifts of "future interests," from which the $5,000 exemption in computing gift taxes is withheld by § 504(b) of the Revenue Act of 1932. P. 312 U. S. 403.

90 Ct.Cls. 614; 31 F.Supp. 770, reversed.

Certiorari, 311 U.S. 634, to review a judgment of the Court of Claims granting a recovery of money collected as gift taxes.
