Canadian Sales Tax Increases ,Ten Times by Time It Reaches the Consumer. By David Lawrence. (Special Correspondent of The Eve ning World.) WASHINGTON. Feb. 17 (Copy right, 1922). Tho soldier bonus with Us multitudo of lives la dead again. Whethor It will bob up onco more depends upon tho agricultural bloc, but tho agriculturists, who havo tiom tho first opposed a ealcs tax as a means of raising revenue, aro not likely to accept It as tho be6t way to Iay tho bonus. Mr. Harding doesn't believe a sales ta? can pan's ''oSivass ho faire! u5 'mud'lf his lcttet ' . Wr.JTordney. A canvass of tho House .on previous occasions indicated that tho ealcs tux didn't have more than eighty votes, and tho strength of the proponents of tho scheme is not any greater to-day than It was. Few men in Congress or In tho Treasury Department could to-day elvo a definite answer to what is meant by a "sales tax." Here arc itho various proposals: First, a general tux on manu facturers and producers collected at tho source, but admittedly passed on to the retailer and fin ally the consumer. 'Second, a tax on retail Bales only also passed on to tho con sumer. Third, a turn-pver tax on all thlng3, being a tax of a small per cent, on 'gross receipts. This also would be passed on to the consumer to pay. Fourth, a tax on a well defined list of commodities. This would be reflected in the final prices of goods bought by tin consumer. Many advocates of a sales tax make no bones about what they mean by a fales tux and they frankly call it a "consumption tax." Small chance of the agriculture1 bloc agreeing to a tax which might, mean more taxes on the produce of the fnrm and a higher cost to tin farmer on tho things ho must buy fcr his fnrm and family. In a nutBhell. therefore, the Presi dent has proposed a solution which means postponement of the bonus jmyments. The sales tax canr.ot Bather enough votes i j pass Congress unless all other taxes are repealed tir.d the whole revenue bill is revised. As a substitute for all taxes It hnd muny friends. As an additional means of taxation, especially in tho inlast of u buslne.f- year fraugiT. with so much uncer'alnty anyhow, the chances arc Congress will accept President H..r.ling's fcmula a sab-i tax will be proposed and shelved atid the bonus will be postponed. The certainty of a Prcsldontiil veto of any bill providing for direct taxes or a revival of taxes already repealed 01 for a bonil issue has changed the whole t-ltuatlon. Congress hasn't wanted to pass a bonus bill. Political pressure from tho soldier oto stirred (Continued on Second Page.)
