The report was released by the joint committee on internal revenue taxation without comment. The report recommended that the Nixons be assessed $444,022 in back taxes for 1969 through 1972, his first term in the White House, plus interest of $32,409 for 1970 through 1972. The staff recommended no in terest for 1969 since the statute of limitations has expired on that year, but added that if Nixon voluntarily chose to pay the interest, the amount would be $40,732 for that year. Thus, if Nixon agrees to pay the recommended assessment 1 — which would be up to the In-, ternal Revenue Service to decide to collect — he and his wife would owe the government $517,203 in back taxes and interest. No Fraud Finding The staff report, wRiich ran 784 printed pages, stressed the committee was drawing no conclusions as to “whether there was or whether there was not fraud or negligence involved in any aspect” of the suspect tax were believed to be Finance returns, either on the part cf Minister Valery Giscard d’Esta- the President or his personal ing. who is not formally a Gaul-1 representatives. list, and former Premier Jac- The staff believes that it ques Chaban-Delmas.    vvould he inappropriate to con- Giscard d'Estaing, 48. is the    ™,t?rs    in vjcw of leader in public opinion polls.
