James and Paul Fitts appeal from a final judgment of the Tax Court,1 finding deficiencies in income tax due for tax year 1986. Having carefully reviewed the record and the parties' briefs, we conclude that the Tax Court's factual finding-that only 25% of the proceeds of a settlement were excludable from income under 26 I.R.C. Sec. 104(a)(2)-is not clearly erroneous.

AFFIRMED. See 8th Cir. R. 47B.
