Tax COURT HEARINGS
Senator Magnuson. Does the Tax Court give any priority of hearing to an appeal from your Board?
Mr. HARTWIG. I don't think so.
Senator MAGNUSON. They are so far behind in their cases, that some of the tax claims are running into 2, 3, 4, 5 years, before a decision is made. I was thinking if there are some large amounts involved here, it might be the better part of-however, I guess these
people have no more rights than the other citizens. However, the Tax Court are running way behind in their claims.
Mr. HARTWIG. Actually there has been a reduction in the backlog of Board cases. It is down to about 42.
Senator MAGNUSON. Now, place in the record the number of people you have aboard now? You have it in your statement, didn't you? Mr. HARTWIG. As of today we have 169 people.
Senator MAGNUSON. And how many are in the field and how many here in Washington?
Mr. HARTWIG. We have 73 in the field and 96 at headquarters. Senator MAGNUSON. So there will be no significant change in the field or the headquarters?
Mr. HARTWIG. In 1967 there will be a slight increase in the field, and a slight reduction at headquarters.
