IRS failed to confirm that taxpayer’s Amway activities weren’t continued for revenue. Deductions for expenditures related to Amway activities were allowed only to extent conceded by IRS: taxpayers failed to substantiate expenses more than that amount. At trial, respondent contended for the first time that petitioner’s Amway activities weren’t engaged in with the requisite profit goal under section 183.
