culpable omission


Explanation:

Example:

The court in Fegeley, supra., ruled against the taxpayer, holding that an affirmative act evidencing willful intent to evade a tax is not required, but that a finding of mere "culpable omission," or failure to perform a lawfully required act could be sufficient to find willful intent to evade.
