For one, we confess to have grown
tired of the "bunk" so extensively
peddled during the past few moirfiha

a reflection on the chastity of ,the

the Democratic revision, bill introduc
ed in congress is an income section
which would require every resident
of the United States who earns more
than $4,000 a year to pay a tax of one
per cent on his earnings in excess of
This would not require the man
who earcs only $4,000 to pay a tax
but it would demand that the individ
ual who earned $4,100 for example,
to pay into the government treasury
an annual tax of one per cent on $100
or $1. The bill also would provide
higher rates of taxation for persons
with larger incomes, adding a sur-tax
of one per cent additional on earn
ings in excess of $20,000; two per
cpnt additional on earnings in excess
of $30,000, and three per cent addi
tional on earnings in excess of $100,
000. The Charge.
Under the tax provisions the man
who earns only $20,000 would pay to
the government each year at the
rate of one per cent on $16,000 ($4000
exempt) or $160. If he earns $30,000
he wauld pay one per cent on $16,000
still, and two per cent on . $10,000,
thus making his annual tax $360. '
The man with an income of $100,000
would be required to pay one per
cent oa $16,000, two per cent on $30,
000, which would be $1,500, bringing
his total income tax to $2,260.
The individual with a net income
of a million would pay this $2,260 on
his first $100,000, and to addition he
would pay four per cent on $900,000
which would bring his total tax to
Exempt Partnerships. ,
The bill also would re-enact th
present corporation tax law, imposing
a one per cent tax on the earnings of
corporations, stock companies, insur
ance companies and the like, but it
would exempt partnerships. This it a
flat tax, there being no graduated
scale as the earnings increase.
The few changes from the present
corporation tax act concern chiefly
the time of making returns and the
time for collection.
The bill also includes under its pro
visions the property of persons wfco
It is estimated by members of the
ways and means committee that ap
proximately $100,000,000 in revenue
may be derived from this new tax.

dends, securities, including income
from property, income from, tut not
the value ef property acquired by be
quest, devise, or descent and also
proceeds of life insurance policies
