total individual income tax collected

The State collected this big sum by
applying the maximum rate, six per

time that the commonwealth has tax
ed its limit. The rate on such in
comes has been steadily going up for
10 years. But 5.5 had been the top
figure until last year's levy.
Much of the opposition to the in

vote in the election of 1920- came from
the high maximum. It was felt at
