President not required to pay tax on papers by Michael Putzel associated press writer Washington a a congressional committee found that president Nixon incorrectly took a $70,000 tax deduction for giving papers to the government in 1968, but he apparently won t have to pay additional taxes for it. Nixon has agreed to pay about $465,000 in Back taxes and interest assessed by the internal Revenue service for the first four years of his presidency 1969 through 1972. But the irs did no to audit his 1968 return and the statute of limitations has run out. The staff of the joint committee on internal Revenue taxation which Nixon asked to review his 1969-72 returns said it also looked at the taxes paid in 1968. The 1968 study was necessary to determine How the handling of Nixon a first gift of papers to the government differed from the handling of the second much larger gift the next year the staff report said. And it was possible that a carryover of the 1968 charitable contribution deduction would reduce the presidents taxes in following years. The committee staff however did not audit the full 1968 return and Nixon has never made it Public. The report said Only that the papers were appraised at $80,000 and that Nixon took the maximum allowable deduction for charitable contributions including $70,552.27 for the papers. This left $9,477.73 available for carryover in future years. Internal Revenue Laws permit a taxpayer to deduct up to 30 per cent of his adjusted Gross income each year for charitable contributions if at least to per cent of that goes to a government Agency such As the National archives. Unlike the Case of the $576,000 deduction claimed in 1969 for the gift of papers there were few facts in dispute about How and when the 1968 gift was made. The papers were selected and appraised in Nixon a Law offices in York and a deed for them was turned Over to the National archives on . 30, 1968, just in time to claim a deduction on Nixon a 1968 tax return due the following april. The primary question at Issue is whether the conditions set out in the deed a a president on a Nixon granted Extension los Angeles a president Nixon has been granted an Extension in filing his 1973 income tax return because revisions Are needed to comply with the recent internal Revenue service ruling on what deductions he can claim his tax attorney said saturday. Arthur Blech said the president s tax return a has to be reworked a to be consistent with the reasoning used by the irs in its announcement wednesday that Nixon owed More than $465,000 in Back taxes and interest for 1969-72. Nixon has agreed to pay the entire amount. The irs report disallowed Many deductions claimed by the president. A it changes our position on Many issues a Blech said in an interview. A the 1973 return just can t be done in time. I still Haven to received a copy of the irs Blech emphasized that extensions in filing Are frequently granted by the irs. Blech said he agreed with a lbs evening report Friday that Nixon May be a Able to write off his entire 1974 income As deductible. Though the president has agreed to pay the entire is assessment for 1969-72, the statute of limitations has passed for 1969 and that part of the payment could be considered a gift to the government Blech said. Irs Laws allow a person to deduct such gifts up to 50 per cent of his adjusted Gross income. Thus the president could deduct about $134,000 for paving what the irs says he tailed to pay in 1969. A the Man is entitled to the deduction a a said Blech. A whether he will elect to use it is another a the May decide it s not Wise to have a year where he does no to pay any income tax. He May simply say a to hell with it us pay my regular in the lbs report newsman Daniel Schorr said Revenue experts put Nixon s income last year at about $250,000 from his presidential salary and expense account plus $18,000 from miscellaneous sources. In addition to deducting half of that for paying the 1969 tax Nixon also could write off $32,000 in interest on his unpaid Back taxes. The remaining income could be written off by deducting $55,000 in interest on mortgages and other Loans $24,000 in property taxes and about $23,000 in fees for his tax lawyers Schorr said in a report. The Washington Star in today a editions said the internal Revenue service has granted Nixon permission to file his 1973 return after april 15 because the return must be redone completely.

Lenten series�?7 the builders of Faith a to strengthen and encourage people that believed and tit make his Tvorik More to p p Arent g o d favored several of the in to i i h d i v i a e dreams others Aith trances and visions Quot by David Poling of the eight offices or positions outlined by St. Paul for Christian leadership the most difficult and divisive belongs to those who speak in tongues. Indeed after St. Paul includes this category in his leadership list he devotes almost another chapter describing its problems and drawbacks. Nevertheless speaking on tongues was part of the religious expression then and now. Religious ecstasy certainly was a source of the emotion described in the Book of acts concerning the Day of Pentecost. The specific term for speaking on tongues is glossolalia a a formation of two greek words to describe the rambling vocal sounds that emerge from the believer. Speaking in tongues has been considered a a gift of the spirit and historically has appeared in the life style of Many religious groups. In the 18th Century John Wesley discovered rather soon that Many people responded to his forceful direct evangelical message with psychological reactions that bordered on the explosive. Wesley did not promote this violent behaviour yet neither did he put it Down. In his a a journal a he offers a thoughtful insight a the danger was to regard extraordinary circumstances too much such As out cries convulsions trances As if these were to the inward work so that it could not go on without them. A perhaps the danger is to retard them too Little to condemn them altogether to imagine they had nothing of god in them and were a hindrance to his work. Whereas the truth is i. God suddenly and strongly convinced Many that they were lost sinners the natural consequence whereof were sudden outcries and Strong bodily convulsions 2. To strengthen and encourage them that believed and to make his work More apparent he favoured several of them with divine dreams others with trances and visions 3. In some of these instances after a time nature mixed with Grace 4. Satan likewise mimicked this work of god in order to discredit the whole work and yet it is not Wise to give up this part any More than to give up the whole.
