NEW FEDERAL TONNAGE TAX
ON VESSELS NOW IN EFFECT
New Rate is Prescribed in the Payne-
Aldrich Bill and Amounts Virtually
to a Decrease of 1 Cent Per Ton-
Will Greatly Lower Revenue Gov
ernment Will Receive.
Washington, Oct. D. Collection of
the new tonnage tax of two cents prc-M-rlbed
for in- the recently jmssed
Payne-Aldrleh tariff act begins today.
The new law provides that the ton
nage duty of two cents per ton, not to
exceed in the aggregate 10 cents per
ton In any one year, be Imposed at
every entry on all vessels from any
foreign port or place in North Amer
ica, central America, the West Indies
Islands, the Rahaina. islands or the
coast of South America, bordering on
the Carribean sea, or Newfoundland.
and a duty of six cents per ton, not to
exceed 30 cents per ton per annum, be
Imposed at every entry on all vessels
from any other foreign port, not, how
ever, to Include vessels In distress or
not engaged In trade.
The new two cent rate amounts vir
tually to a decrease of one cent per
ton from the rates heretofore in effect.
Naturally, the decreased rate will have
a tendency to lower the receipts from
the tonnage taxes and it is estimated
by tho department of commerce and
labor that the annual income will
amount to $1.0.ri0,000 per year, or more
than $:.oa.u00 less than was collected
annually under the old law.
