GROUP AGREES ON
SIX TAX CHANGES
Levies on Dividends From
Paid-Up Life Insurance
Included in List.
By the Associated Press.
A congressional tax committee yes
terday listed taxation of dividends
from paid-up life insurance policies
as one of six new revenue law changes
on which it had agreed tentatively.
' The alterations uecided on were de
signed chiefly to plug ‘'loopholes” in
existing law or simplify its adminis
tration, but Representative Vinson,
Democrat, of Kentucky, chairman of
the House Ways and Means Subcom
mittee. engaged on proposals for tax
law revision, said the Government’s
total revenue would be affected to
some extent, though the committee
had no exact estimates.
Money Recovered at Law.
A change likely to cost the Treasury
some revenue would permit business
firms to deduct from taxable income
the cost of collecting sums included
in their gross income which are col
lected outside the usual course of their
business. Mr. Vinson explained this
would apply to money recovered in
litigation. All the recovery costs, in
cluding attorneys’ fees, could be de
ducted. provided they did not exceed
SO per cent of the amount recovered
and included in grass income.
The committee also agreed tenta
tively to recommend that corporations 1
b? permitted to deduct contributions
for charity, religion, education and
similar purposes, only in the year they
are paid. Under existing law. he said,
these deductions arc possible when
ever a commitment is made.
Would Prohibit Listing.
A fourth change would prohibit
corporations from listing such contri
butions as business expense.
The committee agreed to recommend
that deductions by individuals of con
tributions be limited to gifts made to
American institutions, bufc Mr. Vinson
said this was not intended to bar the
institutions from spending their funds
With reference to gifts "in kind.”
where the actual property or object
involved, rather than its value, is
transferred, the committee tentatively
recommended that the taxpayer base
his deduction on the original cast or
the market value at the time of the
gift, whichever is lower.
