803,850,000 from these taxes on lux
uries and necessities as well, that the
actual amount collected was only $22,-
The articles taxed by the govern
ment under Its new emergency re
venue bill are vry similar to those
that would have ben taxed under the
so-called “luxury sales tax,” or "nuis
ance tax,”' bill introduced in the 1631
General Assembly by Senator John
Hinsdale of Wake county. It is ex
pected that Senator Hinsdale will
again Introduce this bill in the 1933
General Assembly, and with the as
sistance of senators and representa
tives from many of the eastern coun
ties, make another effort to enact it.
It is understood that this bill again
has the support of the school forces
of the State. The school teachers,
principals and county superintendents
are said to believe that a sales tax
and preferably a luxury sales tax, will
supply the necessary additional re
venue vmh which to remove the 15
cents property tax for the six months
school term and still provide addi
tional revenue for larger budgets and
larger salaries.
Senator Hinsdale and the supporters
of his WU in 1931 maintained that it
would have yielded approximately $9,-
000000 a year in revenue. The op
ponents-of the bill maintained It
would not yield half that much. Based
on the figures of business done since
then. Indications now are that the
Mil would not have raised more than

The market continued strong, and
prices held firm throughout the day.
Fnrly Chris afternoon the figures were
not for today s sale, but the
break was disposed of soon after the
noon hour.
$3,500,000 a year in revenue instead
of the $9,000,000 claimed.
The xperience the Federal govern
ment is having with Its sales tax on
luxuries and necessities is very si
mllar, the August report of revenues
shows, with less than 50 per cent of
the estimated revenue collected. In
fact, the estimated revenue was ex
ceeded in only two Items, the tax on
stock and bond Issues, which brought
in a revenue of $634,270 as compared
with an estimated yield of only $541,-
667 and the tax on safe deposit boxes,
with a yield of $180464 as compared
with an estimated yield of only SB3 -
’But the yield from all the other
items was far below the estlmateee.
Take toilet - preparations, which Sen
ator Hinsdale also proposed for a
State tax yielded only $439,784 in Au
gust, as compared with its estimated
yield of $1,125,000. The tax on furs and
fur coats was expected to yield sl,-
000,000 but brought in only $284,812.
The tax on jewelry would bring in
$750,000 a month, the tax experts in
Congress estimated, but actually
brought in only $81,682 in August, the
figures show..
Another tax which both Congress
and Senator Hinsdale thought would
bring in large sums was a tax on
automobilees. But this tax estimated
to yield $2,666,667 a month, brought
in only $866,655 in August. The tax
on motor trucks, estimated to yield
$250,000 a monh, brought in only slOl,-
343. The tax on radios and phono
graphs was thought to be another
source of rich revenue and was esti
mated at $750,000 for August. Yet it
brought in only s76,4ffi. The tax on
mechanical refrigerators would yield
$416,667, the Federal tftx experts fig
ured, but brough in only $177,090 ir\
August. The tax on sporting goods and
cameras was expected to yield $416,-
667 but actually yielded only $135,-
675 In August, the figures show, while
the tax on firearms and rifle and shot
gun shells, estimated at $166,667,
brought in only $27,6)3.
Candy and .shjwln«jfum were ar
ticles which 'Sdfiator Hinsdale would
have taxed 20 per certt. The monthly
Income from the Federal tax on
candy and chewing gum was esti
mated at $416,666 but the actual re
venue In August was only $176,762.
The Income from the federal tax on
soft drinks was estimated at $583,333
but brought In only $337,462 in Au
gust on business don% in July, a big
soft-drink month in mid-summer.
An effort was also made In the 1931
General Assembly to impose a State
tax on electrical energy. Congress did
Impose this tax of three per cent on
the bills of all electricity users, esti
mating that it would yield $3.250000 a
month in revenue. The yield from his
tax on electricity In August was only
$967,612. It was also interesting to
note that Congressman Crisp, of Geor
gia, who is credied with being the
author of this particular tax and to
make the people pay it instead of the
power companies was defeated in
Georgia for renomination, largely be
cause of this tax The tax of one cent
a gallon on gasoline, also imposed by
Congress, estimated to yield $12,500.-
000 In August, yielded only $8,944,875.
The tax on telephone and telegraph
messages, with an estimated yield of
11.975.000 in August, yielded only 105,-
425. Another tax that was expected
tp yield a heavy revenue was the tax
on stock transfers and conveyances,
with an estimated yield of $2,750,000.
The actual yield from this tax in Au
gust was $688,877.
When the Federal tax experts hit
upon the plan to tax every bank
check two cents, they thought they
had a sure source of big revenue and
estimated the yield from this tax at
$6,250,000 a month. But the eyield
from this tax in August was only $3.-
364,251. only a little emore than 50
per cent of the estimate.
If there is as much difference in
the yield of these Federal taxes and
the estimated yield, as shown by the
August collections, those wk ohave
studied the matter here maintain
there would be just as great a dif
ference in the yield and the estimates,
should the State of North Carolina
enact similar taxes. The belief is
growing that the 1933 General Assem
bly will hesitate a long time before
undertaking to impose a series of
State sales taxes upon those already
imposed by the Federal government.
(Continued uom rage one.)
both the school board and of the city
council would be indictable under the
law If any attempt is made to levy a
tax for a budget in excess of that ap
proved by the board of equalisation
Others hold that only the members of
the city council would be indictable if
a tax larger than Is authorised should
be levied.
Members of the board of equalisa
tion indicate that they have taken the
action they have in reducing supple
mentary budgets not because of any
desire to Impede the schools but be
cause ethe law makes it mandatory
for them to reduce school expenses as
much as possible wherever this can
be done without serious injury to thi*
schools. They feel the' Charlotte
schools can operate , without impair
ment with 58 additional teachers and
15 per cent salary supplement.
