(Photo by Dr. Dan duravich) Congressman Says Car-Buyers Should Demand Tax-Break Be Passed On WASHINGTON (UPI) - Hep. Charles A. Vanik, D-Ohio, advised new car buyers Saturday to insist on a tax break when (hey trade in the family buggy. To help (he buyer, Vanik inserted into the Congressional Record his version of a "new car purchaser's guide" which he said contains information on car prices never before disclosed. the excise lax on new cars according lo the chart, from 10 per cent to 7 per cent, The congressman said that by looking at the chart the prospcc- ive cuslomer can calculate how much the dealer paid for (hat fancy item in the showroom. *· * * FOR instance, the Vanik price list shows that one model of Ihe Ford Mustang, with a suggested retail price of $2,178, cost the dealer $1,710 last month. Both prices are factory charges in May of 19C5 nnd do not include taxes, transportation and extra accessories. It was inspired by recent House approval of a $4.8 billion reduction in federal sales taxes which Ihe Senate also is expected lo pass in a few weeks. This retroactive lo last May 15. Vanik is concerned lhat the cut on new aulos might not be passed on to the cuslomer. "Because of Ihe very great importance to the economy of Ihe automotive industry, Congress should keep watch on the results of the excise tax cuts," tie said. He added t h a t the federal sales tax on autos was put on thfc list of levies lo go with the understanding that it would result in tower prices 0:1 nev/ cars, and if this docsn'l happen, Congress ought to put the tax back on new cars. The chart in the first column shows the manufacturer's suggested factory retail price Ihe hare charge to the custom er without taxes, transportation or other extra. Tlie second column shows the '- -ax paid by Here arc some examples from Vanik's guide: (May 1905) with figures listed representing. in order, manufacturer's suggested retail price; 10 per cent tax based on manufacturer's price to dealer; new lax when reduced to 7 per cent, (if passed on): Ford 6, 4-door sedan $2,198 $177 $124 Mustang, 6, 2-(1oor HT $2,178 $174 $122 Mercury, 4-door $2,586 $221 $135 Plymouth.

Frank T. Brumfield of Inverness, president of Delta Council, nr.d 15. F. Smith, execulive vice-president, represented :'. the Council at Ihe hearings which were held by the Commit- ;· tec on Agriculture, House of Representatives. '[ C. B. Ray, Et Paso, Texas, chairman of the Cotton Pro- j ducers Legislative Committee, presented n joint statement ·i and representatives of (he affiliated organizations joined him · in answering questions. * Spokesmen pointed out thai the proposed acreage cut -j being supported by the USDA would reduce farm income in ; ! collon areas by $300 million annually at a time when cotton ^| farmers have already absorbed $17.35 per bale, or approxi- .' mately 5250 million in lower prices in an effort lo reduce '·J government costs and bring about more competitive prices -« for U. S. cotton. ;1 They also said that acreage cuts in (his country would :1 give the green light for increased production abroad. 10 per cent excise the manufacturer when lie snldj the car to the dealer. Since the tax is based on the price to the dealer, the consumer can find out what the dealer paid simply tax package includes a cut in^by multiplying this figure by IB, IOOKINC rot THB . . . .
