Disappointment over the yield of direct luxation made France rely more and more on Indirect levies. Use taxes now contribute 61 percent, of (he revenue, turnover taxes 38 percent, But. there is exnsion there also. These turnovor taxes amount sometimes to 1!0 percent of the cost of a product, and naturally they rise ns prices and production rise. Thus the temptation Is to make out bills for less tha'n real values, the balance passing fn cash. The estimated lo-< loss Is hundreds of millions of dollars a year. Another defect In indirect taxation Is Its multiplicity. For Instance, M taxes fall on coffee on its way from the plantation to the consumer. Another, slill more serious, is that the more rates are raised the more prices rise. (irlevnncn The taxpayer has another grievance.

" Seeing what has been happen- ng to the national currency for ilmost 40 years past, it is only natural that the French- citi/.en should held onto his gold and vade bis taxes. The government, after trying In vain to extort his gold, finally made it legal for him to buy and sell and hold it. It has now begun to make it legal for him to evade his taxes In full because they have become exaggerated, inequitable and complicated to the point of confusion. 3 Defect* The fiscal system developed these throe defects by reason of the French genius for dodging taxes and successive short-lived governments' need of getting In more money as quickly as possible by any and every means. So one tax was piled on top of another rind rates of taxation contantly raised. Income taxes, Introduced Into France less than 50 years ago find never a success, proved slower and slower to react to incessantly rising prices and harder and harder to collect as their rates were raised. Of all state revenue, they never produced more than 26 percent and now they produce 23 percent. Where they are paid in full it. Is by the salary- earners, who represent 60 percent of all income declarations. Business contributes only 20 percent and agriculture a mere 1.3 percent. In .15)50 just 80,000 fanners paid income tax on profits averaging loss than $650, while the 6-10,000 revenue comes from national taxes. In addition, 26 percent represents "purafiscal" charges, such as social insurance, and 10 percent local taxes. The Ministry of Finance estimates that "fical and parafisciil pressure" absorbed 38 percent of the national income In 1951, against 28 percent in U.S.A. and 40 percent in Great Britain. Parliament's recent revolt against higher taxation makes some sense. What is wanted is WATCHES REPAIRED to Look and Run Like New!
