No special treatment for Rep. Hart on taxes


Rep. Neil Anderson, R-Blackfoot, says it would be useful to have a full accounting of all federal funds going to local school districts, not just the federal funds that are appropriated through the Legislature annually.

Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol,  has been told by a federal judge that he cannot use his status as a legislator for immunity against paying his owed taxes, according to the Idaho Statesman.

Hart has been in a battle with the IRS for years, claiming that taxes are unconstitutional. The judge presiding in the case also moved up the court date to avoid any conflict with the general election in November.
