State Resumes Refunds Rsr Th» Accru,!»*.-! n W. . T .^9 9 9 By The Associated Press Tax Commissioner William E. Peters said Tuesday the state is resuming the payout of income tax refunds and will make its April school aid payment just four days late. A low general fund balance and other factors delayed refund checks after March 22, according to Peters, and a 15.5 million school aid distribution was expected to be held up until the end of April. Peters indicated the resumption of refund payments and the earlier-than-anticipated payout of the delayed state aid money were due to an improvement in the state’s cash flow situation. He said “all income tax receipts would be deposited no later than Friday,” making that statement through a news release, but he acknowledged that some receipts delayed by taxpayers who sought deadline extensions would come in later. "Over the weekend,” Peters said, "we plan to release 45,000 refunds. “Everyone who filed early and correctly should now have received their refunds.” Council Bluffs Lounge Is Sued William E. Peters Council Bluffs (UPI) — An Omaha man, his wife and another woman have filed a $500,000 suit against a Council Bluffs lounge and one of its employes, court records showed Tuesday. Listed as defendants in all three suits filed in Pottawattamie County District Court were Pete Bonacci and the BB&B Corp., which does business as the Joker Lounge in Council Bluffs. Plaintiff Gary Moore of Omaha, a tow truck driver, alleged in the suit that Bonacci "did maliciously assault and strike the plaintiff in the face with his fists, causing personal injury and shattered glasses and permanent facial injuries.” — ---0——— —« f/v-* »«»«IIVIII, IÖC1UI Beermann Wants More Figures Before Tax Decision By United Press International FWrmsnn coin h»_____ - i . ...... . , ............

CYCLONES «eg Í 3495 SttUDfK If m IUY A SACK Of tototl rlOVËLAND LAWNS HIS?*? itlwaysOpta) nit f SI By United Press International Secretary of State Allen Beermann, disputing the Exon administration's determination that taxes need not be raised this year, said Tuesday he is not ready for Wednesday's State Board of Equalization tax rate review session and may seek a delay on any action. The board is required by state law to meet within 15 days of adjournment of a regular session of the Unicameral to determine if any adjustments are needed in state sales and income tax rates due to appropriations made by the Legislature. Autopsy Not Certain On Lentz's Wounds Beermann said he would ask the attorney general if the board could meet Wednesday and then recess for a time so that more information, particularly on income tax revenue, can be obtained. The secretary of state, one of five board members, said he is especially concerned about state treasury cash flow. A problem with cash flow last November prompted a special session of the Unicameral. Beermann said if he understands the figures he received from State Tax Commissioner William Peters Monday, an increase in the sales tax rate for possibly half the year may be in order. The sales tax rate is not at 2.5%, The income tax rate is at 15% of federal tax liability and Peters said it can’t be raised without automatically triggering an increase in the sales tax rate due to a provision which requires sales and income tax revenue liabilities to be about equal. Based on current revenue projections, there is still some flexibility in the sales tax rate in applying the approximately equal test but not in the income tax rate. Beermann said in his opinion “the big factor” in determining whether a sales tax rate in­ crease is needed to keep the treasury balance in the black is the final tally of income taxes as of the April 15 filing deadline. He also said he was thinking mostly of sales taxes because that rate can change from month to month while an income tax change must cover the entire calendar year. The tax commissioner's projections indicated the treasury balance as of June 30, the end of the current fiscal year, would range from $3.2 million to $12.2 million, depending on whether all of the appropriations made by the Unicameral are spent.

FBI agents shot Lentz, of Marquette, Neb , with .38- caliber handguns early Monday inside the jetliner provided ostensibly to take him to Mexico. His death ended a seven-hour drama in which he forced a pilot to fly him in a private plane from Grand Island to Denver, then negotiated with authorities for the larger aircraft. Denver homicide detectives Tom Lohr and John Weber said pathologists still were trying on Tuesday to determine how many bullets entered Lentz’s body. They said his body contained eight entrance and exit wounds but that some were caused by bullets going through the body and re-entering it. Ted Rosack, special agent in charge of the Denver FBI office, said he believed five shots hit the man. Denver police and the FBI said most of the shots struck Lentz in the abdomen and stomach, although Rosack said one bullet hit him in the hand in which he held a ,22-caliber pistol on Robert Blair, the pilot of the small plane. The bullet shattered the pistol butt, Rosack said. Neither Blair nor Lentz’s other hostage, airplane mechanic Harlan Hillers, was injured during the episode. The Denver detectives said Lentz entered the Convair 9% jetliner holding a shotgun to the head of Hillers, but Hillers was pushed aside by an FBI agent. 7/7/ I Limit 2 / * 32 oz. rAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA Across Nebraska A.R.M.
