THE SALES TAX
, WAflUINOTON, April 21. (flpi
cliil correspondence) Willi tho an
tiouncmiiont of (tin Treasury Depart
mn nt that It favors tho repeal of tho
excess profits tnx, mill with tho pro
ponul of a wild tax plan by Bunntor
Reed Hmool of Utah, a promlnnnt
ml Influontlnl mumbor of Iho Kin
Alien Commlttnn of tlm Honnto, tho
substitution of tho snlos tax for tho
excess proflln tnx become a vory di
rect Issue In tho hall of Congress
On Ita fncu tho excess proflln tax la
n burden that fnlls upon mon of gront
wealth, whllo, npparontly, tho solos
tax li a burden that fall principally
on coniiuinern In tho proportion that
they conimmo good. For thin reason
tharo will bo an offort to alien tho
Influoncn of pooplo or smnll wealth
In favor of continuance of tho ox
cosn protltN tax against tho ubstltu
Hon of n Hales tax.
Tho proponcnti! of tho sales tax
assort, liowovor, that tho nxccits pro
fit tax In Its ultimata result la not
what II purporta to bo. Thoy doclnro
that In largo measure tho excess
profit tax lit pawned on to tho consu
mer by tho producer, tho manufac
turer, and tho doalor. who not only
add tho amount at tho tax to tholr
prices but add homulhlng morn In
order to bo on tho safe aide. Many
people agree that thin In tho real op
eratlon of tho excess profit tax, but
thoy assort that It will bo Impracti
cable tn make tho pooplo of tho
country sea thai thin I no, and,
therefore, thoy opposo an attempt
nt substitution of the nale tax which
they bellevo will bo extremol)' unpop
ular amonic those who do not under
stand tho practical operation of tho
excess profit tax.
It I argued In favor of tho sales
(ax that slnco tho rato of tho tax
would bo doflnlto and curtain and
known to ovoryono, It could not be
madti tho basis for unjustified In
crease In price a has alwny been
the cbjio with tho excess profits tax.
A salon tax of ono por cent, or of one
half of ono per cent, would Justify
an Incroasa on each sale of only ono
cent on each, .dollar or ono cent on
each two dollars, aa tho cono might
bo. In the price of goods sold. Tho
tax paid In. this manner and at this
rato would be far less of u burden,
It Is assorted, than the present oxcosn
profit tax which Is collected Indi
rectly from tho conusmor and mado
tho Incident 6f boosting' prices to
n unconslonabla degree.
. Another arturnont advanced In fa
Tvor of tho mIos tax Is that men and
women of ordinary ability could bo
employed to chock up on tho poyinenl
of tax, whereas In chocking up on
tho Income and excess profits taxes,
financial experts nro required nt a
m.nimrniiv.ilv larco salary. In nn
awor to the suggestion that evasion of
tho salon tax would bo easy, It Is
assorted that most of tho sales Uixen
(would bo paid through concerns oni-
(ploying a largo number of pooplo nnd
n attempted evasion of tho tax
would bo known to a number of em
ployes. A buslnnis man would havo
.llttlo temptation to evade tho tax for
tho reason that If he ailompiou
evasion ho would nlwnyn bo undor
iho menace of dlsclosuro of tho facts
or would bo subject to blackmail by
emnloyes who would uso tholr knowl-
'edge an a moans of promoting (heir
own wolfaro. For this reason It Is
assorted thero would bo lonn evasion
j'of tho sales lax than thore Is of tho
excess profits tax.
These aro a fow of thu suggestions
(hat havo been offorod In support of
tho new proposal, a vury oxtonslvo
discission of which will tako placo In
congress nnd through (ho -press of
the country In tho next fow wooks
