Merchants Warn Sales Tax
To Be Tested In Court
(Continued from Page One.)
rctors of the North Carolina Merch
ants Association.
Gives Fair Warning
“We wanjt the members of the
General Assembly to know and the
people of North Carolina to know
tbit we arei through fightng the
sales tax and Mat we shall continue
to fight it in the courts, even if the
General Assrbly goes ahead and puts
t on ” Dowell said. “We also want
to be perfectly fair and honest and
serve notice now that we intend to
"on test til sales tax law, if it is pass
ed. We want to let \hem know new
that no general sales tax law has
ever been sustained by the h’gher
courts. The Illinois sales tax law,
very similar to the one n o w propos
ed far North Carolina has already
been declared unconstitutional by the
T’l'no’s courts, and an appeal is now
being taken to It he Ulkd States
Supreme Court It appears likely
that it will ,be held unconstitutional
by the, court and that if this General
Assembly adopts a general sales tax,
that it will also be held invalid.
“We think it bet’er to tell the
members of the General Assembly
th’s now, than to wait until it has
been passed and then let them fiind
they have failed to balance the bud
get by from $8,000,000 to $9,000,000 by
adopt ng a tax pla n that is uncon
sttutionai ana irom which it can
■bonce get nothing.”
If the members of the General As
sembly go ahead and pass this gen
eral sales tax now and it later deve
lops that it is- unconstitutional and
the budget still out of balance, they
cannot say that they were not given
due and fair warning, Dowell pointed
Critical lM»r Mcrchr* ts
The letter wrltte n by Mr. Dowell
to the members of the General As
sembly points out that the merchants
of the Stttto have been pasi?’nig
through a must critical period and
that instead of making any profit
the last year or two, thousands have
actually lost As a result
the proposd general sales tax amoi nl
to a tax on their invested capital
amounting to '•confiscation, Dowell
maintained. Since condi
t'rns make it Impossible to add the
two pet cent, sales tax to the price of
corramodit ies, the merchants will
have to absorb it, with the result that
ifbttlursmt B aihj Bfspafrij
many will go bankrupt, Dowell said,
pointing out that sc far the General
Assembly has refused to write into
the bill any provision to compel mer
cheats to pass the tax 0 n to the con
s'-mens. ,
“The general sales tax is a new
and untried system of taxation in
tl ? United Spates,” the latter con
t nued.j “The only state that has
ever experimented with it is Penn
sylvania, where the tax was in effect
far six months and where the social
find economic aspects and results
were so disastrous that the governor
of that state gt rongly condemned the
tax and urged its repeal. You will,
of course, recognize hite fact that the
so-called Mississippi sales tax plan is
an entirely different species of tax
ation, in that it levies a tax on the
gress receipts of manufacturers,
wholesalers retailers, professional
services and so forth. ,
“Retail merchants of North Caro
lina are as patriotic as any oth: -
class of our citizenship. They stand
in the forefront of every progressive
movement for the benefit of the
State and the comimun.’ties in which
they operate. They are perfectly will
ing to bear and are bearing their
full share of the tax burden, but un
der existing conditions when their
rank s are being rapidly depleted and'
the best and most efficient of them
are f:nd’n.g it extremely difficult to
survive, they are unwilling and can
not bear an additional tax burden of
annually. i
“Therefore, in view of the fact
that the legality of a general sales tax
has never been , sustained, and
murther fact that its enactment
would sound the death knell to prac
t’ciaMy overpr sirrhll dfi
North Carolina, I have been instruct
ed to petition yur honorable body, in
t-lic name of fairness and justice, not'
l i inf flic t this Confiscatory tax upon
the merchants, and to advise you
that if the measure is enacted the
merchants, in order to save their pro
prrty will have but one course open
to them and jthat will be to contest
"’’e legality and constitutionality of
the law.”

To Star Routine.
As soon as the revenue bill reaches
the Senate from the House, which
may be this afternoon, if it is sent
over by special messenger, it is ex
pected to be referred at once to the
•Senate Finance Commit tae. It will be
in this committee at least a day and
is expected to come back in virtually
the same form as written by the
House Finance Committee, with the
three per cent general sales tax re
inserted and the kilowatt hour tax
and corporate excess tax amendments
removed. Present indications are that
the Senate will then adopt the bill
virtually as recommended by the fi
nance committee. The mere mechanics
>of passing the bill in the Senate is
expected to consume at least a week,
however. There is now utie possibility
that the bill will get before the Sen
ate until next Monday night, and it
will then require at least two days for
the Senate to adopt tlie bill, sitting
as a committee of the whole. It must
thru pass its second and third reading

Bui ilia 1 : is very unlikely, since mem
bers of neither house so far have let
anything interfere with their usual
week-end vacation from riday after
noon to Monda ynight. So the House
is not likely to get the revenue bill
back in its hands for concurrence as
passed by the Senate, until Monday,
May 1.
Houso May Hold Out.
If the Senate makes the changes in
the bill it is expected to and puts the
three per cent sales tax back into
it, theie is not much chance that the
House will concur in it immediately,
wi'h the result that a conference
committee will have to be appointed
and the bll sent to conference. And
even if the conference committees
should agree very quickly, it would
hardly be possible to accept the re
port of the committee and finish up
all of the other matters before the
assembly before Saturday, May 6.
There is a possibility of course,
that he Senate may not make the
changes in the revenue bill it is now
expeted to and that it may decide
to accept the bill very much as pars
ed by the House. Some believe that
ias a compromise gesture to the House
it may decide to retain the kilowatt
