Ex-Idaho Lawmaker Looses Bankruptcy

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Federal authorities are closer to seizing a tax-protesting former northern Idaho lawmaker’s home after a judge dismissed his second bankruptcy filing. Ex-state Rep. Phil Hart has been ordered by courts to pay the federal government and state more than $600,000 in delinquent income taxes, interest and penalties.

He’s tried to protect assets including his log home in Athol by filing a pair of bankruptcies. The Spokesman-Review reports both have now been dismissed, the latest Monday by U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Terry L. Myers, who ordered Hart to submit to a Jan. 7 deposition.

Hart’s bankruptcies were rejected as inappropriate. In the first, he proposed repaying about $12,000 of the total owed. The second one that Myers dismissed this week proposed paying $106 monthly for three years — about $3,800 total.
