1. Under the Revenue Act of 1918, amounts distributed to the stockholders of a liquidating corporation out of earnings and profits accumulated by the corporation since February 28, 1913, are not to be treated as "dividends," which, under § 201(a), are exempt from normal tax, but as payments made by the corporation in exchange for its stock, which are taxable "as other gains or profits." § 201(c).
