When businessmen ask for TAX EQUALITY with their CO-OP COMPETITORS they are only asking for a square deal. They want no advantage or special treatment. They think that ALL business—their own and CO-OPS, too should pay FEDERAL INCOME TAXES on profits' in the same way and on the same basis. They are not opposed to CO-OPS—do not want to put them out of business. Paying equal federal income taxes with other businesses will NOT put co-ops out of business any more than it puts others out of business. Co-ops mako profits—big profits. They are able and should pay federal income taxes on them. Private business pays full taxes on its profits to Uncle Sam. CO-OPS pay little or nofhing, They should be taxed the same aj their competitors. THIS ADVERTISEMENT SPONSORED ,BY...
