STATE INCOME TAX
WOULD LIFT BURDEN
Tax Limit Leajrue Shows How
Proposed MwpHlirtl Would Af
According to announcement by i
state headquarters of the Wash
ington Tax Limit League, the
state income tax which it pro- !
poses to bring about reduction '
of taxation on property to 40 j
mills, will not hit the average ,
man who makes $200 a month
or less, and will actually save j
money for the average home-own
er who makes up to $6,000 a

"Take the average wage-earn

has bought a little borne from
years of saving The home val
ued at $4,000. assessed at $2,-
--000. AVith the tax rate at 70
JrtTils, he pays $140 in taxes, out
m hit wages. With the 40-mill
limit, he would pay only $80
taxes, saving $60.
"The state income tax is to
take care of those essential gov
ernmental costs, over and above
what a 40-mill levy on property:
will pay for. The wage earner, !
suppose, makes up to $200 aj.
month. For himself and his I.
wife, he is allowed a $2,000 ex
emption, and $200 for each of
the children (or other total de-[,
pendents), making at least $400. L
or a total exemption of $2,400. i
Since he is allowed as much in j
exemptions as he actually makes.-
he will pay no income tax.
"Take the average business
man, corner grocer or merchant. (
Suppose he is making up" to $5.-

home On the home he is paying
with a 70-mill levy, $175 in taxes

Under the 40-mill levy, he would '
pay but $100 taxes. Give him;,
a wife and two children, and '
his exemptions, to. would total j
$2,400. He would pay an in-(
come tax on $1,600, then. Under
the income tax rates proposed by
the League, this man would pay!
$74 In income tax. This, with
his reduced property tax, would I
total a little less than he is pay- 1
ing under the present system. !
"Take the city professional
man, married, two children, liv- I
ing in an apartment.
he makes up to $10,000 a year,
in fees. He now escapes real .
property tax. I'nder the propos
h£A income tax. giving him the
iSS/!tto exemptions as the other
two men, he would pay tax on
$7,600, amounting to $256; this,
for the protection and advantages
afforded by government, which
lie does not now pay at all.
"This last man will not be in- j
jured by assuming his just pro- .
portion of the cost of state and
local government. How long
WOtlld he maintain his $10,000 ;
income with the business and j
agriculture of the state stifled
by excessive taxation? The in- j
creased prosperity brought about
by a 40-mill property tax Until
law, with its levy distributing
features, would be the best in
surance policy the city profession
al man could buy."
As to the farmer, the League
concludes, data of the Washing
ton State Grange shows he has
made no income above labor
costs during the last ten years,
except one war year when he :
made four per cent on his invest- j
ment. He could scarcely, then,
pay an income tax, but he would
be helped by the accompanying
law which sets his property tax
lory at not more than 40 nulls
on tbe dollar of 50 per cent val

Announce Christmas Sen ices
Next Sunday evening's service
at the Baptist Church will be in
keeping with the spirit of the
Christmas season, in the form of
appropriate music and an address
by Rev. Charles Baker on the
subject: "God's Sign for a Better
World." The subject will be
viewed from its historic back
ground, interpreted by modern
world confusions and enforced as
the final remedy for a word of
peace and brotherhood. The text
used will be taken from Luke.
12:10-12. "They were terribly
afraid, but isj- angel said to
them, "Have no fear. This is
good news I am bringing you,
news of a great joy that is meant
for all the People. Today you
(have a saviour born in the town
|of David, the Lord Messiah. And
here is proof for you: you will
' find a baby wrapped up and ly
ing in a stall for cattle." (Mof
| fat'B Trans.) This address is
prepared with care and designed
as an amplification to the best
thought and desire of a troubled
world waiting for and wanting
peace. This foreword urgently
invites all who can to worship
] with us at this service as part
|of the most fitting form of this
1 great season observance.
