DODGING THE INCOME TAX
St is reported by men, who ought to know, that
out of 42,000,000 persons "gainfully employed" in

personal income tax returned in 1919 certifying
totlncomes of as much as $1,000 a year, despite the
fact that it is certain that the average income dur

Therefore, it is clear that several millions of per
sons, probably from 15,006,000 to 20,000,000, who
