Hart wants reconsideration from Tax Appeals Board

Rep. Phil Hart has filed a motion for reconsideration with the state Board of Tax Appeals, Ethics Committee members were informed. Hart last month lost his case there, where he'd tried to get extra time to appeal a state order to pay $53,000 in back income taxes, penalties and interest on the basis of legislative privilege - because he said his status as a state lawmaker should allow him more time. He cited the constitutional privilege against arrest or civil process during legislative sessions.
