"PHILADELPHIA. Sept- 11. Adam
Mortimer Singer and his brother,
"Washington M. Singer, -who have been
living in England, are returning to
Aajerica, according to & copyrighted
dispatch from London to the Phila
delphia Public Ledger.
They go home because after the pay
ment of the income tax to tne United
States they are taxed 10 shillings 6
peace to the pound of the remainder.
Adam Mortimer Singer said:
"One of my brothers has already re
turned. By going to llye in America
ire should double our incomes. A man
living In England who has 100,000
$500,000) income from the United
States, first pays 12 per cent national
tax and 50 per cent surtax to America.
Then he pays 10 shillings 6 pense in
the pound on the balance of 38 per
iceot to Great Britain, leaving 19,000
$95,000) for himself. If this man had
a residence in France, his income
taxes in the three countries -would ex
ceed 100 per cent."
Other -wealthy Americans are likely
to follow the example of the Singer
brothers on account of the double tax
ation during peace times without the
stimulus the same levy Inspired when
the war was la progress.
