f AGE TWELV* BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, JUNE 20, 185» Doughton Scorns Big Tax Boost Would Favor Moderate Hik« in Levies On Corporations By FRANCIS M. I,e MAY WASHINGTON, June 20. </f Chatrman Doughton (D-NC) of the (ax -f raml ng House Ways a nd Means Committee said today he believes a $433,000,000 tnx boost the committee has voted for corpora ttons "goes too far." The top Democratic tax manager disclosed In an Interview that the committee put the boost into Us general tax bill over his persona! opposition. He said 14 committee Democrat. 1 ! voted for It, He and 10 Republicans were opposed. Doughton did not indicate what position he would take when the bill goes to the House door next wccfc for a vote. If he openly opposes the rise then, his position might be decisive in event of a close division in Hie House. As chairman of the committee, Doughton will be In charge of the bill. He also wields considerable personal influence with many legislators on tax matters. The bill cuts excise luxes by $1,010.000,000. The boost In corporate taxes was designed to offset this cut in part and win presidential approval of the measure. Would Support Modest Hike Doughton indicated he would support a moderate rise in corporation taxes but told newsmen: "I want to pick up more revenue by closing tax law loopholes instead of piling up taxes on corporations which, everybody knows, are hidden taxes ultimately paid by the consumers." The House Ways and Means Committee voted the $433,000,000 in new corporation taxes late yesterday. This would cut the lax load of small corporations earning from $5.000 to $167,000; but jump the present 33 per cent Income tax rate for the biggest corporations to almost 4! per cent. Administration leaders immediately predicted the tax bill, in a form suitable to the President, will be handed to the White hi time for Congress to adjourn July 31. However, this schedule assumes prompt approval by the House, where the bill is expected to come up next week, and (he less likely prospect of quick Senate passage.
