POUT SMITH, Ark., June (UP)—The Arkansas Revenue Department today filed charges In Bcbaslian Cii'euit Court here ask- injj judgment of S1.230.2S from Fourlh Dislricl Congressman F:rJ- jo Cravens for failure to pay stalt income taxes for five years, The one-pa}$c complaint wrilleii by O. T.' Ward, assislant revenn attorney, alleged that Cravens "fulled and neglected lo tile slate Income; ta>: returns" for the years 1040, 1911. 1042, 194:! and Ifl4<. Cravens, the complaint said, has i\u annual income "yrcatly in excess of $2,500 and is married and head of i\ family." Hlate law provides that anyone making more limn 52,500 a year must file, income tax returns. Circuit Clerk Davis McGchce said he will issue a summons loday for the congressman's appearance, in court, ami that SherilT Hen C-ero:i will make the service. Cravens then has 20 clays to file an answer. Normally the case would be hean'i at the next regular term of circuit court the first Monday in October. The clerk said, however, that it mi^ht be heard by Judye J. Sam Wood by agreement durin« the June term now In session, Opponent lllli-ls Charon > The complaint also asked penalties, interest and in addition to the amount of taxes owed the state. The suit was filed following recent charges by Lee Whittaker ot Fort Kmith, Cravens' lone opponent, that the congressman claimed exemption from the payment of income taxes because lie does not Jive in Hie state six. months each year Since that time. Cravens has nol denied the charges but. tokl newsmen in Washington tliat he would welcome a friendly suit to drlcr- minc the constitutionality of Arkansas income tax law. Cravens told newsmen that anyone was welcome to inspect ln. r > correspondence witli State Revenue Commissioner Otho A. Cook. However, Cook has received NO official notification of such permission, and has steadfastly refused to discuss the case or to allow jriyone to sec the corresjiondonce. An Arkansas law prohibits revenue department officials to Oiscus-j individual income tax matters without official consent of the person involved.
