104-10175-10395: DISPATCH: LIHUFF/1 1964 COVERT INCOME TAX RETURN

03/17/66: Dispatch from COS, Mexico City to Chief, KUVEST, Attention: Victor D. Unitsky (Info: Chief, WH Division): "1. It would be appreciated if the LIHUFF-1 tax file could be reviewed by Victor D. Unitsky and a reply to this dispatch be forwarded to this installation on a priority basis. We can appreciate Unitsky's work load and the many other matters that he must have pending as a result of his twin (passage unintelligible) LIHUFF-1 case can be considered among his highest priorities because of the interest that is accumulating on the disputed 1964 tax. 2. Despite the seemingly irrefutable data presented in reference C as a result of the LIHUFF-1 appeal of the 1963 tax liability in reference D, LIHUFF-1 feels very strongly that he has no actual tax liability. Because of his cover circumstances he does not have access to the same resources that he would have were he not connected with KUBARK (CIA); that is, access to legal means to contest the case through the courts, if necessary. For this reason it appears that no possibility should be left unconsidered in attempting to assist him. For this reason it appears that no possibility should be left unconsidered in attempting to assist him. 3. Further, as an American abroad LIHUFF-1 is allowed some $30,000 (US) deduction on his income from other sources. He feels, therefore, that he would be unfairly treated to be taxed some $700.00 (US) on his income from KUBARK. 4. We wish to take this opportunity to commend Unitsky for his excellent work in reviewing and advising Station non-official cover personnel on tax matters. His expert and efficient approach will relieve the Station and Headquarters of a tremendous amount of effort in connection with these tax matters."
