Estate of Robert E. Sympson, Deceased, Elizabeth C. Sympson Personal Representative and Elizabeth C. Sympson - Page 8

                                        - 8 -                                         

          inquired further and/or refused to sign the return.  Mrs. Sympson           
          has not carried her burden of showing that she neither knew nor             
          had reason to know of the substantial understatement on the 1987            
          return when she signed it.                                                  
               In light of the above, we hold that Mrs. Sympson is entitled           
          to be relieved of liability as an innocent spouse for tax years             
          1982 through 1986, and that she is not so entitled for 1987.                

                                                An appropriate order and             
                                             decision will be entered.
