U.S. Supreme Court

Hoover Motor Express Co., Inc. v. United States, 356 U.S. 38 (1958)

Hoover Motor Express Co., Inc. v. United States

No. 95

Argued January 29-30, 1958

Decided March 17, 1958

356 U.S. 38

Syllabus

Fines paid by a truck owner for inadvertent violations of state maximum weight laws are not deductible as "ordinary and necessary" business expenses under § 23(a)(1)(A) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939. Pp. 356 U. S. 38-40.

(a) In this case, it does not appear that the truck owner took all reasonable precautions to avoid the fines. 356 U. S. 39-40.

(b) Even assuming all due care and no willful intent, allowance of the deduction would severely and directly frustrate state policy. P. 356 U. S. 40.

241 F.2d 459 affirmed.
