June 11, 1992
There are two versions of the estate tax return extension request (IRS Form 4768) and two versions of the estate tax return (IRS Form 760). There should only be one version of the estate tax return extension request and one version of the estate tax return. One version says $175,000 was paid to the IRS on June 11, 1992, and one version says $119,000 was paid to the IRS on June 11, 1992. The lines near the $119,000 figure are broken as if something such as a correction fluid was used. The $70.051 "overpayment" in the $175,000 version disappears.
One of the dynamics covering and diverting attention from the actual money trails is the confusion and conflict created by making it appear that the family [Anthony O'Connell] is responsible for delaying the estate tax return and consequently for the need of an extension request. The reasons given on the $175,000 version were an appraisal, gifts, and debts:
From IRS Form 4768, Part II Extension of time to file
1. The decedent was a part owner of a tract of ground the value of which is to be determined by an appraisal in progress. The enclosed payment is based on the maximum value for the property and will be changed.
2. The estate does not at this date possess full data for certain gifts and debts of the estate and other needed information."
