incorporated herein by this reference. When the petition was
filed, petitioners resided in San Rafael, California.
Petitioner Theodore C. Schwartz is a self-employed dentist.

June 7, 2005, regarding petitioners’ unpaid Federal income taxes,
including penalties and interest, as follows:

the Internal Revenue Code in effect for the years in issue, and
all Rule references are to the Tax Court Rules of Practice and

under the small tax case procedures of sec. 7463(f)(2). However,
because petitioners’ total unpaid tax exceeds $50,000, this Court
removed the small tax case designation and discontinued
proceeding under the small tax case procedures of sec. 7463. See
Schwartz v. Commissioner, 128 T.C. 6 (2007).
