Chamber / Flat tax becomes hot issue FROM PAGE At Under the plans, a family of four earning $30,000 would pay no income tax, wiped out by a deduction of $22,700 and $5,3PO for each dependent. The new law*, some say, would exempt about half the nation's wage-earning households, In Kevin Boyd's view, the biggest change in a flat tax system would be a shift away from investments based on potential tax credits to investments that actually produce value, in the form of capital, jobs or output of goods. "It would remove investment for the purposes of a tax write- off," said Boyd, professor of business and economics at Kansas Wesleyan University. " But critics contend a true flat tax would have to include the elimination of popular deductions for mortgage interest, charitable donations, and state and local taxes. Companies would not be allowed to deduct the cost of employee benefits, such as health insurance. ; Critics also say that without a transition period, eliminating tax deductible municipal bonds would harm the ability of local and state governments to raise money. V SALINA CITY COMMISSION That exclusion now allows municipal bonds to be bought at 5 l 'a percent, rather than 8 1 '* percent, Boyd said. At the higher rate, municipal bonds would be less attractive to investors than corporate bonds. On the other hand, elimination of taxes on capital gains on investments could produce a 20 percent to 30 percent increase in the stock market automatically, some experts state. The added gain would help stimulate the economy. "It's an issue engendered by feelings of the times, the feeling that the tax system is unfair, and that an individual would pay less," said Dan Rupp, professor of economics and finance at Fort Hays State University. "That's not always true." The federal income tax represents the chief source of revenue for the federal government, an amount equal to about $590 billion, annually. Some estimates say the proposed flat tax would have to be raised to 21 percent to generate the same amount of revenue. The recommendations of Kemp's commission will be forwarded to congressional commit; tees'studying the tax issue.
