PRACTICAL to REDUCE TAX Present Revenue Laws Will Yield $260,000,000 Less Than Is Required, Due To Shrinkage in Yield From Excess Profits Tax. Washington. — Congress has been warned by Secretary Mellon that it must reduce government expenditures or increase the nation's tax burden. Appearing before the House Ways and Means Committee, the Treasury head said additional cuts of more than $250,000,000 will have to be made in the estimated expenditures of $4,550, 000,000 for this fiscal year if addition al taxes are to oe avoided. Under estimates of federal outlay for all purposes this year as presented by Mr. Mellon, $3,830,000,000 will have to be raised by taxation, whereas he estimates that the present revenue law would provide $260,000,000 less than that sum. due largely to the shrinkage in the yield from excess profits and income taxes. The secretary showed that expendi tures thus far in this fiscal year have actually increased compared with those a year ago. He told the com mittee that ordinary expenditures for July, the first month of the fiscal year, were $322,000,000, against $307,000,000 in July, 19920, leaving a current de ficit of $113,000,000 compared with a deflit of $76,000,000 in July a year ago. Of the total expenditures last month $115,000,000 was for the account of the military and naval establish ments and $32,000,000 for the Ship ping Board. "If expenditures are to continue at anything like these rates, the estima tion will be greatly exceeded," he said. Representatives .Mondell of Wyom ing, the Republican leader, said in a formal statement that it is entirely practical, in his opinion, "to reduce the total tax levy by at least $500, 000,000 and still meet all proper, nec essary and essential expenses of the government." "The excess profits tax and the higher income surtaxes should be re pealed and nothing substituted for them," he said. "The so-called nuis ance taxes and the transportation tax, In whole or in part, should be re pealed, and some simple, easily under stood tax, as for instance the propos ed 5 per cent flat increase on corpo ration taxes, enacted to provide funds lost by the repeal of these last-men tioned taxes.
