What they do not have to pay a added to the burden of the rest of us—naturally. Who are these tax dodgers? Well, CO-OPERATIVE CORPORATIONS for one, government businesses for another. Even some colleges and universities own and reap tax-free profits from commercial enterprise! making big profits. ALL escape entirely or avoid a major portion of their income tax liability lo Uncle Sam. TAX THI UNTAXID An estimated BILLION DOLLARS EACH YEAR is ion to Uncle Sam io income tax revenue by such exemption*. YOU make it up! Right now Congress if talking .bom getting ercn more from present taxpayers. Contact your Congressman NOW. Tell him to TAX THE UNTAXED FIKST before adding more income taxes onto present taxpayers. All present ox-exempts should pay federal income tax just like other businesses and individuals. National Tax Equality Association
