            that "stated his air travel expenses were $38,465, * * * his                               
            adjusted gross income was $17,503, whereas as he then and there                            
            well knew and believed, he had no air travel expenses and his                              
            adjusted gross income was $55,838, resulting in additional tax                             
            due and owing of $14,050."  Petitioner, through his attorney and

            and wanted to enter the guilty plea to the year 1983 under the                             
            plea bargain agreement.  Petitioner, at the hearing, stated that                           
            he had made a mistake, but when informed by the U.S. attorney and                          
            the judge that it was necessary that he say that he had claimed                            
            the deductions for air fare that he had not paid knowing that he                           
            was not entitled to claim the deductions, he so stated.
