Federal court papers show Oklahoma County Commissioner Brent Rinehart is not planning on complying with summonses issued by the IRS about past tax liabilities.

The Internal Revene Service is investigating Rinehart and his company, Unta Bent Inc., for 2003 tax liabilities. A hearing is scheduled for next Monday morning for Rinehart to explain why he hasn't responded to two IRS summonses.

According to court papers, Rinehart declined to testify against himselft because he already faces prosecution on campaign finance charges connected with his 2004 campaign.
