FRIDAY, APRIL 5, 1974 ASSOCIATED PRESS, UPI, NEW YORK TIMES IRS Plans No Penalty For Nixon Gazette Leased Wires WASHINGTON - The Internal Revenue Service said Thursday that it does not feel civil fraud penalties against President Nixon are warranted and said that its audit of the President's tax returns for 1969-1972 was closed. “The IRS did not assert the civil fraud penalty for any of the years involved in the audit because it did not believe that any such assertion was warranted.” the agency said in a statement. The statement was made after a senate-house committee said it would leave any further action on Nixon's taxes to the IRS and the committee considering the impeachment. Would Consider The house judiciary committee said Thursday that ii would consider the detailed report of the joint committee on internal revenue taxation along with other evidence in its impeachment inquiry. The report by the committee staff Wednesday concluded that Nixon owes $476,431 in back taxes and interest. The IRS concluded that Nixon owed $465,000 and Nixon agreed to pay the IRS assessment. The White House said the tax debt will leave the President “almost totally wiped out” financially and may force him to obtain a loan to pay the hill.
