Letter to the editor: Taxing illegally gotten gains goes back to 1927

Glen Brozovich
Breckenridge

As a clarification to the letter from Ally Doolin regarding taxes on stolen property and illegally gotten gains:

The precedent goes back to 1927 in U.S. vs. Sullivan. Sullivan was a bootlegger during prohibition and did not claim his profits on his taxes. This is how Al Capone was convicted for his illegal activities, as well.
