r to Remodel Law as It
Territorial Treasurer r Has Plan
for Extending Scope of'
Income Tax.
Radical recommendations concerning
poll tnx laws will probably bo mado to
tho legislature by Governor rrear,
should Territorial Treasurer Coupling's
present opinions on the subject bo crystallized
to climinnto the tax and take
care of the revenue by other methods.
Treasurer Conkling is of ,tho opinion
that the poll tax law, under which
about sixty per cent, of tho residents
legally bound to pay tho $5 per annum
escape doing so, is in need of drastic
Tho treasurer is preparing figures on
tho subject winch will be laid buforo
tho Governor beforo tho end of the
year, in which ho will show that tho
poll tax, which amounts to nbout $90,-000
a yenr, is almost an injustice to
those who pay tho tax year nftcr year.
There is a heavy percentage of citizens
who escape payment of the tnx for tho
Bimplo reason that they don't pay and
"Ifor another simple reason that they
Thoso who do pay aro mainly
thoso on salnrles, employes of others,
and in nil such cases they cannot escape
tho tax collector. There is n rank and
file among the citizens who do not see
$5 in cash from one end of tho year to
the other and who would find it almost
a physical impossibility to pay tho tax
nuthorlzed by law. In some of the
country districts tho natives, for instance,
seldom pay the tax becauso they
have not the means. They make mats
nnd many other things in which thoy
nro skilled nnd live by trading with
stores, obtaining fish from tho sea by
their own skill nnd raising tnro for
into poi.
The man who makes $30 to $40 a
month as an employe of a business
house, whoso rent, -clothing and general
living expenses for himself and fnmily,
require almost every cent earned, is
compelled to pay poll tax. The tax collector
sees to it, and the employe has
no opportunity to dodge payment. Tho
district courts are cluttered at vnrious
times of tho year with suits brought by
the government for the payment of the
noil tax. as well as other taxes.
Tho treasurer has constructive ideas
on tho rfubicct of rctaininc tho collec
tions, howover, even though tho poll
tax is eliminated, by passing a graa.
uated scale of income tax whereby ov
erybody who earns or receives an in
como, oven down to $250 a year, pays
somothiiie into the treasury. He would
reduce the exemption from $1500 to con
siderably less, so that the man on salary
who receives $2000 a year would
still pay into tho treasury in income tax
the amount ho now pays in poll and income
tnx, but nt the same time many
of those who havo heretofore escaped,
paying poll or income tnx, would pay
something, although it might bo only a
dollar or two a year.
By this means tho treasurer believes
that thi treasury would bo" the gainer
in the long run.
