The far infrared polarimeter with very low instrumental polarization to be employed at MITO telescope to search for calibration sources was presented. The investigation of polarization near the cosmic microwave background (CMB) anisotropy peaks was done. The analysis of problems connected with spurious polarization removing was done and a method for non-gaussian atmospheric fluctuation was presented.
