Congressman Bob Dole Proposes BIll To Assure Fairness In Taxation Disputes Washington -- Congressman Bob Dole (R-Kan) has intro- duced legislation to establish a Small Tax Court to assure the average taxpayer of fair- ness in any dealings with the Internal Revenue Service. "Our court system should serve as arbiter in disputes between the Internal Revenue, Service and y taxpayer, an " Congressman Dole said. "It is :not always fair that the exe- cutive agency serving as col- lector of taxes also serves as final judge as to what taxes are actually due." Under provisions of the bill any taxpayer involved with the Internal Revenue Service in a dispute over taxes due Of know that it is un- any person, cam- corporation to sell. Sale, or give away livestock feed ms- with noxious weed seed is found grain, or livestock a fine of not $50 or more than be invoked for each found guilty.

"Millions of Americans each year are confronted by the In- ternal Revenue Service with claims for taxes due," Dole said. "Many, or even most, of these claims are big enough to hurt the taxpayer but not large enough to justify the great expense involved in long, drawn-out litigation." "The taxpayer in this kind of situation generally has no alternative but to accept the judgment of the Internal Re- venue Service officials," Dole added. Dole added that the Tax Court was created 40 years ago whee federal income taxes were not a~sessed at all against persons who had less than $5000 income, The Court was not established for the small taxpayer. "Now we have a different situation," he sMd. "The av- erage citizen needs to be able to ob!~ain ~n impartial review of a tax dispute without the heavy expense and legal in- volvement of a court case," Lawrence -- One hundred ninety-nine students in the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Kansas have earned places on the Dean's Honor Roll for the fall semester, Dean Willi am P.

H. Hagan, District Manager in Salina. tiagan says mat in the past some medicare payments for auctor bills nave been delayed because some simple but im- portant bit of information did not go to the medicare carrier with the request for payment. There are two methods of claiming payments for doctor bills under medicare. Under one. the doctor bills the pa- tient for whatever part of the $50 deductible has not been paid, plus 20~, of the rest of the bill. tle then claims the remaining 80 percent from the medicare carrier. This method can be used only if the doctor agrees to it. Under the second method, the patient pays the doctor and requests repayment from the medicare carrier. To show the carrier that the bill has been paid, the patient either includes an itemized receipted bill from the doctor, or has the doctor show the necessary in- formation on the request for payment form. All claims ,'~,~t be on the Request for Payment form -- see page 291 of YOUR Medicare Handbook Persons filing a claim on be- half of a deceased person are encouraged to see a social se- curity representative before sending the claim for pay- ment. "If an older person in the Salina area wants us to re- view his request for payment but is unable to come to the office or see a representative in his county, he may send the claim to us by mail with a telephone number, and we will call him if we see any probTems," Hagan said.
