a rough calculation the
country, excluding laborers of all kinds
and thos? having an income ot six hundred
dollars, is about ?20,000,000. A
three per cent. Income tax upon this
would yield $60,000, but a graduated income
tax going up to five per cent, for
resideats and ten percent, for absentees
would bring in at least a couple ot hundred
thousand more, while with the
English system followed ot taxing Incomes
from property abroad a still
greater increase might be made.
Last year the income from taxation
was $3S2.S91.S2. It is very plain that
the income tax will yield far more than
this if it is properly assessed and collected,
and that there will be no
Scalty when once the burden of taxation
is placed on the shoulders fitted to bear
it, la relieving the unjust or undue
strain now put upon th laboring man.
The income tax is (he poor man's tax.
It is generally stated that the income
tax bill which should come before the
House today will be considerably
amended by the committee's report, or
rather we should say the committee's
report will suggest amendments. The
limit of exemption, it is said, will be
$2,000. and the tax to be at the rate of
oae per cent. The view taken by the
committee, if our information be correct,
is that it is but an experiment, and
that even at this rate $60,000 of additional
revenue will be raised. The
view is a fair one and may be correct.
Festica lente," make haste slowly, is
one of the pithiest expressions of the
many pithy expressions to be found in
the poems of Horace; but one may make
haste too slowly. The views ot the committee
are evidently based upon a
of sugar income of$6,000,000.
The estimate of the income from all
sources in the Republic, made by this
journal, is very much larger.
Even with a two thousand dollar exemption
and a one per cent, rate, the
revenue from the income tax will, ac
cording to calculation, considerably exceed
the amount of $60,000. But this
paper sticks firmly to the six hundred
dollar exemption and belives
ly in a progressive scale of taxation.
On inquiry from several wealthy men
it has been gathered that they have no
objection to a progressive tax. This acquiescence
may come from a conviction
that the bill will never pass the Senate,
and therefore a cheap form of popu
larity may be gained by favoring what
these gentlemen feel convinced will
never pass. It is preferable to think
the contrary. Though we are blessed in
these Islands with a select coterie of
tar dodgers, yet we are still more
blessed ia having a remarkable num
ber of honest gentlemen who freely say
that in the past they have not paid their
proper quota of taxes, simply because
the law did not exact them, but that
they were perfectly willing and anxious
to make laws which should affect them
One warning we would give to the
Legislators. It Is an undoubted principle
of income tax legislation that the
lower the rate of tax the lower ought
to be the limit of exemption. If we are
to have as high a limit of exemption as
two thousand dollars, then certainly
the rate ought to be higher than one
per cent. Another thing they should
take notice of is that such a small revenue
as $50,000 frqpi this tax Is not going
to enable the Minister of Finance
to take off direct taxes from the two
hundred dollars a year man. If it is the
policy of this paper to advocate that
just burdens should be laid on the
shoulders able to bear them, so much
the more is it its policy to see that the
heavy rate of five dollars per annum,
or two and a half per cent., should be
taken off the shoulders of tho&i who,
receiving two hundred dollars per
and even less, have to pay tbaC
exorldtsuit rato ot tsuws upon their tiny
However, It Is to bo hoped that the
bill and Us amendments will como up
for discussion today, and that the public
may know what the House, really Intend
to do. Tho public do take very
great Interest In the matter. U is the
most progressive financial stop yet
taken here, ami though It moots with
opposition, its supporters stand na
about ten to one to Us opponents.
Since writing tho review of tho
Income tax which appeared In theso
columns May 15, attention has been
called to an amendment to the Act
passed July Stst. JS94. It does not affect
the general provisions ot the Act, but
refers merely to the exemption and
abatement. Up to that year exemption
was allowed for $750 and abatement for
Incomes not exceeding, $2,000. Tho new
act raised the amount of exemption to
$500 and the amount where abatement
was allowed to $2.S00, and in this form:
the old rate ot abatement for Incomes
of $2,000 was $600; under tho new Act
the full exemption Is allowed, vir.. $$00,
so that an income of $2,000 only pays on
$1,200. Incomes of $2,500 pay on $2,000,
being allowed an abatement ot $o0U.
Of course this raising ot exemptions
and abatements has been based on
the principle dwelt on several times in '
these columns, via, the higher the rate A
of tax tho greater must Ins the exennyy
tions and the abatements. It has
maintained that there is no such thing
as progressive taxation In England.
If this is not such progressive taxation,
we should like to know what progressive
taxation is. True, it is not carried
as far as we should like to see it, not
carried out to its logical conclusion, as
it has been In Japan, but the germ Is
there, and most assuredly it will grow.
England is a conservative'eountry as
a rule, and progressive taxation of incomes
naturally meets with much opposition,
but the true theory of taxation
allows it; it is indeed sanctioned by the
very best thought It appeals to common
sense, but common sense, alas,
has had very little to do with taxation
in the past. True republicanism brings
common sense to bear on such questions.
Aristocracy of birth or wealth
objects to bringing common sense to
bear, and merely wishes to save itself
burdens which it lays with an
hand upon those least able to bear
them. The mere crudity of taxation is
the poll tax, which it Is to be hoped will
be wiped out from our tax laws within
two years. The poll tax for the whole
Islands amounts to $45,5S0. An Increase
ot receipts might very easily allow this
tax to go, and a dollar might be taken
from the school tax It it Is found that
the income tax be as remunerative as
we think it will be.
If the income tax is properly managed
It will, even at the ridlculously
small rate which is proposed, prove far
more remunerative than people think.
It will bring one per cent, from more
than the $6,000,000 calculated upon.
It would be no bad plan for the Legislature
to pass a short Act empowering
the tax assessors to inquire into the.
amount of income of all persons. A
separate column might be reserved in
the tax books for this purpose. This
would not be for the purpose of taxation
now, but would afford a very valuable
mass of material for forming estimates
for the taxation of the future.
That the income tax bill will pass the
House of Representatives Is now assured.
What fate it will meet in the
Senate Is quite another thing. The Representatives
voice the wishes of the
people. The Senate has voiced the
wishes of those with the money bags.
The House of Representatives has been
very wise to keep the whip hand over
subsidy bills till its voice can be heard
in the Senate.
