IfJCOME TAX FLAWS
No relief from the stringent
condition, of Oregon's state finan
ces Is promised by the income tax
measure sponsored by the Oregon
state grange and other organiza
tions, and If It is approved by the
voters at the November election,
the stale will not be able to care
for its wards and meet its current
obligations. It was declared Satur
day by T. B. Kay, state treasurer
and member of the state board of
controL ; , -
The proposed Income tax law,
Mr. Kay said, comes within the
six per cent limitation tax amend
ment and provides that any reve
nue derived from : the tax shall
be applied to reduce the tax now
levied on property.. "
Should the amount of I money
derived from the Income tax ex
ceed the estimated property tax
then the surplus shall be set aside
in a special fond and be used to
pay interest on state bonds and re
tire the principal thereon. v
Mr. Kay said-the proposed In
come .tax bill.' to be fair,; should
have restored the old six per cent
base or excluded the revenue de
rived from the income tax from
the six per cent amendment.
The state treasurer said the prw
posed income tax law would, .not
provide any more money than Is
received under . the present taxa
tion system, and that' the deficit
will continue to increase. The
property tax will not be decreased
materially, he said. -
.. It was pointed out by Mr. Kay
that taxes in Oregon will continue
to Increase, and there is - little
prospect of a reduction in the tax
burden.:; - . ....... - ... .
He said the' Institution popula
tion; was increasing rapidly, and
that the people were demanding
extravagant ' concessions which
must be paid . for : out of . state
funds. "Before taxes can be de?'
creased," Mr. Kay said, "it will be
necessary for the people to cur
tall their wants." , .- I -
The population at the state pen
itentiary has nearly doubled dur
ing the past five years, while the
state hospitals at Salem and Pen
dleton are . crowded to their cap
acity.' This condition means that
new buildings will have to be con
structed, with the corresponding
Increase la maintenance.
It was pointed out by -Mr. Kay
that a previous income tax in Ore
gon raised nearly $3,000,000, but
that this money was expended In
addition to the property tax.
The state treasurer said be
would oppose the proposed income
tax for the reason that It would
fall far short of accomplishing
that for which it was drafted. .
