Washington. Oct. 12. Representative :
Cordfll Hull of Tennessee, author of the
Income tax law, has leen Interested In the
articles Tun Sr.N has published recently
In reMid to the uncertainty and con- ,
fusion anions officers of corporations and
other business concerns as to their duties
under the new law. especially In the mat-
In. f ! h WrtM I m i .U. nnHHul , , f 1 ..-
lent. at the source.
1 As shown hy Thk St'N's ai tides, the
lteatcst difficulties of business men. who
are seeking light on what they must do,
Relate to the provision of the taw which
requires them to withhold the normal tax
'on income or Interest to be pald on cor
porate bond" or similar obligations Be
it uied b.v mortgage or trust deed. The
Ux on Income of this character Is to be
withheld at the source whether or not It
amounts to 13.. mm, which is the exemption
to which a taxpavcr is entitled.
The chief compl.ilnt made by officers of
corporations anil others affected by this
provision Is that they will have no means I
n many case of knowing who the owners
of the bond coupons uie.
Mr. Hull's Anstrir.
Representative Hull has answered these 1
criticisms for The Sl'n and he shows that I
they aie based on a misapprehension of
the law. He points out that It will make
no difference whether the corporation offl-
ers know the name of the owner of the)
iiup.ni or noi.
All they aiu icqulred to do is to-withhold
the tax and turn It ovei to the Gov
ernment with the niinie of the taxpayer If
his Identity Is known. It will rest with
the owner of the coupon to disclose thei
ownership JM"! claim exvinnllon If he is
, ntltisa WW. ..i.rrT' 1 tnort vtluable Buaisntee, as It will relieve
"With ivspect to the noimal tax of 1 pel 'that country of the necessity of malntaln-
cent. upon Income or Interest derived from" In'g two fleets. The taper finds no giound
oipornle bonds or similar obligations, for astonishment that the 1'ntted States
secuied by moitguge or trust deed the, has taken care to be the master of the
new Income tax law." said Mr. Hull, "will,
equlie the debtor torporatlon or Its pay"-'
In? or fiscal aKent to withhold th 1 per.
ent. tax on all fixed annual or periodical I
neome, dri.ved us auovc staleu, wnetner
the ame ixcteds J3",000 or not.
"If the corporation or fiscal agent thus
withholding the tax knows the, name and
address of the bondholder whose coupon
s paid, the same will be reported in writ-
nr to the Commissioner of Internal Rev-
nu. along with the return of taxes with
hild. "If the name and address are unknown,,1
the tax will nevertheless be retained and
mincl over to the Government with a
Wtement to that effect. The Inability
of the debtor 'corporation to know the
name and address of a landholder does
not preclude it from retaining the tax and
paying It to the Government.
Should the bondholder have any other
ini iiinc from which lo deduct any claim for
exemptions or deductions he will either
iliM'lose himself to the debtor eorpoiatlon
or th Government."
Heaaon for Some Canfaaloa,
Tart of the confusion among officers of
corporations apparently Is due to the fact
that deductions have been drawn from the
.i nate print of the Income tax provision.
'.Hi.; h wa.s changed considerably In con
ft ence. For Instanoe, the Afonuucfurers
I: iron! In commenting on the provision
hits said :
"Many coupon bonds carry the contract'
that the Interest if to be paid without any
bductlon by reason of any tax Imposed.
The obligor In the contract is freed from
u ithholdlng thn payment of the tax on the
interest from the bond, but It is compelled
under penalty of personal liability to the
tax to notify the collector of the payment
of tne interest to oe maae, to me enu man
. i . l , , , ... . . . n j n . ...
the sum shall be computed as a pari on
-he Income of the peraon receiving the,
interest, but where the obligor doe, not
kn.nv the owner of the bond to whom the
know the owner of the bond to whom the
inteiest is paid, how Is It possible for tho
obligor to give the tax collector any Infor
mation of value or how is the obligor to
I"- held liable for the tax for not giving
the Information?"
Mr. Hull In his statement shows under
the lnw that the obligor Is not fre,e from
the duty of withholding the tax, even
when the name of the owner of the bond
is unknown.
"While the Government," said. Mr! Hull,
"is rot concerned as to any contractual
relations existing between the corpora
t ns and bondholder! relative to tha lia
bility for tax, the fact la well known that
most corporate, bonds contain a provision
guaranteeing ine Donnnoiaer against mn
luymrnt of sued taxes, ana ir valid tne
orporatlons will Day the tax themselves
in such cases. The Senate amendment'
ri.li.g the obligor from withholding the
rutinfnl rt ln In rase such contract
lists was stricken out In conference,"
Mr, earnest' Case.
In nt her criticisms of the law the point
.in been made that many wealthy men
vlio liuve bonds guaranteeing them against
' - payment of taxes will escape taxation
f'tngither, while an additional burden will
'" thrown upon the corporations, notwlth
KAiidiiur that they themselves will already

surprising statement' that 85 pe.r cent, of

Al.RANr, Oct. 12. There Is a rumor to
night that Gov. Sulzer may undertake to
violate all precedent and court rulcs-and
appear peisonally before the high court
of Impeachment to-moriow.
Unless Tn does the couit will go' Into
executive session and deliberate Upon the
question of admitting the evidence on the
Governor's misuse of campaign funds
when It convenes at 2:30 o'clock.
Gov Sulzcr's fi lends throughout the
State have left no stone unturned since
the court adjourned on Friday In an
effort to get twenty members to vole
against his conviction.
The, best Information to-night Is that .
these efforts have been fruitless and that
the Governor will be lucky If he has eight
rntea for acquittal. This would mean !
forty-nine votes for conviction. I
loiter Mar Appear To-day.
Gov. Sulzer will have teports from his
lieutenants by morning. When he realizes
that the vote Is against him no one. would
be surprised at anything Gov. Sulzer
iflight do.
