Let \(\Omega\) be a bounded, connected linearly convex set in \({\mathbf{C}} ^n\) with \(C^{1+\epsilon}\) boundary. We show that the maximal ideal (both in \(H^{\infty}(\Omega)\) ) and \(A^{m}(\Omega), 0 \leq m \leq \infty\) ) consisting of all functions vanishing at \(p \in \Omega\) is generated by the coordinate functions \(z_1 - p_1, \ldots, z_n - p_n\) .
