BY SALES TAX Lower, Middle Income Groups Hit ST PAUL, Minn. — Gov. Freeman said today it is "crystal clear that the lower and middle income groups aro hit harder by the sales tax" than by an increase in the income tax. He added that a one per cent sales tax would cost some taxpayers as much as 128 per cent more than present income taxes. He was commenting on computations showing that the one per cent increase in the income tax rate which he has proposed would mean increased payments ranging from 75 per cent on a tross income of $4,000 to about six per cent on a $50,000 gross income. Would Pay $49 An example given showed that * married man with two children and a gross income of $4,000 would pay $49 in state income tax under the governor's'proposal instead of the $28 he now pays. The $21 increase would amo'unt to 75 per cent. "Of course the percentage of increase looks high in the lower tax groups," said the governor in a statement, "because the present tax on such groups is relatively low. If you increase a $1 tax to $2, the increase amounts to 100 per cent." "If a one per cent sales tax were substituted for the increase in income tax," he added, "the increased tax would be $36 instead of $21. This would be an Increase of more than 128 per cent. Only Half "On the other hand, a family of four with an income of $50,000 would have its taxes increased by six or seven per cent under the Income tax boost I recommended, while under the sales tax the increased burden would amount to only half that much." The governor made his comparisons on the basis of a one per cent sales tax with only housing exempted.
