Rulings are IRS issuances, which is why you can't find anything at a judicial website.

Rev. ruling 55-261 is on page 307 of Volume 1 of the 1955 Cumulative Bulletin. I don't know about online, but you could find the CB's in a law library.

Like the other responder, I don't know if Private Letter Rulings are available anywhere online.

Hope you don't mind my sharing "more than I know" about this subject ...

The person I depend on for tax advice has such access -- via "Checkpoint", at <http://www.riatax.com/>. After looking over the site for 5 minutes or so, I can't figure out the price(s) -- I don't think there is an option for a (small) charge per document -- looks more like a (medium to large) charge for a permanent account... but I'm guessing.

Just trying to share,

Right...that's one of the services that I use. And you can only access that section of the RIA web site unless you are a "member" or subscriber to their service.

I know of no tax site where you can "eat what you kill" (in that...you only pay for limited access). As far as I know, it's an all or nothing deal.

I'm sure that, in the future, there will be such sites where you can pay $20 (or so) and get a few minutes of access. But I don't know of any right now.

Private letter ruling 8137085 concerns food and beverages for specific ailments. It is specifically cited in J.R. Newman, (DC) 68-1 USTC.

The cost of special foods was disallowed in this case since it represented the cost of foods which normally took the place of those normally consumed.

You can obtain copies of these ruling through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). I think they normally run about $1 a page (not positive). You can get the information by contacting the IRS and requesting the Disclosure Office. I don't know of any place that an individual is going to get most of this information on-line, without spending a lot.

You really don't give enough information to know what part of the code to research. Code 213 is pretty good sized.

I'm sorry this is so long. Hope it helps.
