TWENTY EVENING TIMES, CUMBERLAND, Ml>., WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 1955 Dial t'A-2-4600 for a WANT AD Taker Reserve Fund For Lean Tax Years Backed Subcommittee Of Legislative Council : ; Makes Suggestion •BALTIMORE Ml — A subcom mi'ttee of the Legislative Counc has proposed that a 15 to 20 niillSn-dollar tax stabilization re serve fund be created to tid Maryland over lean years in ta> collections. In a report to be submitted t the council today, the subcommil tee headed by Del. Blair Lee (D Montgomery), proposes this use o treasury surplus rather than a a u t o m a t i c tax reduction plan \vhich received some consideration by the General Assembly last win ter. The subcommittee said the ide; is'.'based on a plan in operation in New York State since 1946 under Which surpluses in good tax years are transferred to the fund to cov er. deficits in poor tax years. --The reports noted that the re serve fund could not be used for any other purpose and may not be considered in the drafting of the State's annual budget. "It occurs to the subcommittee there are several reasons for in stituting a tax stabilization reserve fund in Maryland. ."•'In recent years the State's tax system' has become increasingly less dependent upon stable taxes such as the various property taxes arid increasingly more dependenl upon the relatively unstable taxes such as income and sales, taxes ,.'A downturn in the business cycle is immediately reflected in re diiced collections of income anc sales tax. If the recession is serious, it can throw the State into a major financial dilemma within the period of a single fiscal year,' the report said. "And it invariably leads to the imposition of new taxes at a time when they are most unwelcome. "Even in a period of continued business prosperity," the subcommittee said, "the existence of a tax stabilization reserve fund should have the additional virtue of inducing the Board of Revenue Estimates (and the administrative officials upon whom the board relies) to be more realistic in their estimates. "The records show that Mary land's tax estimators are excessively cautious. In the absence of a stabilization fund to cushion the blow of. undercollections," the. committee report concluded,' "one can hardly blame them." The subcommittee flatly rejected the Virginia plan of automatic income tax reductions if revenues exceed estimates by more than five per cent, Woman Must Pay Medical Bills Mrs. Lucy Clark, from the Bedford Road area, was ordered to pay $175 in medical bills this morning in Juvenile Court 'resulting from a Halloween prank that ended in a shooting. Mrs. Clark was given a hearing before Magistrate Morris Baron because she gave her 15-year-old son a rifle which he fired and injured another Bedford Road boy who was playing Halloween pranks oh October 28. Injured was Boyd Criles, 3on ol Mrs. Edith Esheman, who was a target bullet fired from "f" .22 caliber rifle while he was Halloweening in the Bedford Road a,rea. w-The Clark boy told authorities that his mother suggested firing the rifle over the heads of the boys in an effort to scare them away. He said he fired several shots in the air in a general direction of the pranksters before the Crites boy fell wounded. The bullet struck Crites above the right eye and creased the boy's skull. He was admitted to Sacred Heart Hospital.
