United States v. Correll, 389 U.S. 299 (1967)
United States v. Correll
Argued November 14, 1967
Decided December 11, 1967
389 U.S. 299
The Commissioner of Internal Revenue's longstanding ruling that "traveling expenses" incurred in the pursuit of business "while away from home," which are deductible under § 162(a)(2) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, include the cost of meals only if the trip requires sleep or rest, held to achieve not only ease and certainty of application, but also substantial fairness and to be within the Commissioner's authority to implement the statute in any reasonable manner. Pp. 389 U. S. 301-307.
369 F.2d 87, reversed.
