Washington, O. C Official reports
on the March tax payments indicate
to treasury officials that their -sti-mate
of receipts for the quarter and
for the fiscal year ending next June
30 will be borne out.
The March installment had been
calculated at $430,000,000 and receipts
for the fiscal year placed at $1,600,
000,000 in the treasury department.
Secretary Mellon and Under-Secretary
Winston also had expected that 80
per cent of the March payments would
be in the hands of collectors by March
21 for certification to tho treasury and
their figures, they said Monday, show
ed that the total on Saturday approxi
mated 80 per cent of the $430,000,000.
While the trend thus indicated has
given the treasury a feeling of se
curity as to the income for the gov
ernment in the current fiscal year,
no one, in the secretary's opinion, can
tell, at this time the full effect of the
reduced rates carried by the present
tax law and he regards it as unlike
ly that the treasury will be able to
compute its producing power until
after the June payment is received.
The fact that the treasury will not
know definitely concerning the present
law has not, however, delayed its
plans for going ahead with a study
of the changes in preparation for
further tax revision next fall. Tax
experts now are engaged in going over
administrative provisions of the law
