8 TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1945 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Solons Face Major Proposals 1TTE INCOME TAX TO BE GIVEN STUDY War Measures First;' Then Postwar Plans Des Moines, (/P)_lo\ya legisla tors will have to deal with more major proposals at the forlhcom ing 51st general assembly than a any . session for many years, the Iowa taxpayers association said Tuesday in a survey covering pro posed legislation likely to be pre Eented. One of the 1st questions tha should be settled is whether the state income t a x should return automatically to full schedule, be again temporarily fixed at half rates, or be revised permanently the association said. "The present I o w a schedules are-generally considered unreasonably heavy on the people leas able to pay, and therefore a revision of schedules would seem tc be due," the organization asserted One of the 1st bills to be introduced, it continued, proposes schedules of 1 per cent on the'Is 51,000 income, 1% per cent on the 2nd $1,000, 1% per cent on the 3rd, 2 per cent on the 4th, 2V. per cent on the 5th, and 3 per cen on all income over $5,000 with present exemptions. The associa tion reported that its study of thi: bill;indicated it would produce a much as or slightly more than thi present 50 per cent payments. "If we had the privilege of of ferine just 1 suggestion to the 51s general assembly it would be tc give the right of way and ful precedence to measures that wil curtail activities other than thosi which help win the war," the as socialion asserted, "and postpom all but the obvious proposals tha might,, be labeled postwar plans. "A construction program woulc of course come 1st among thos .things that can now be decidec without danger of changes tha might make advance decision in advisable." As to the interim committe proposal that -money be set asid to modernize and make addition to state institutions, the associ ation expressed belief that effor will be made early in the session to get approval for these allot ments. 'It is a well known fact tha for more than 20 years there has been accumulating; a raaintenanc deficit in t h e s e plants, to sa nothing of needed exnansion/'-th - association said. The proposa also was seen as a postwar pro sram that appeared to offer th most practical employment pro cram of needed improvements. As ' the'recommendations o the-.Iowa : school 'code commission the association referred to its : re cent study of C a s s county an pointed out that city and town in dependent and consolidated dis tricts would receive aid ayerag ing the equivalent of 6.99 mills property tax, while township an . rural independents would get aii equal to a property tax slightlv . less than 1.2 mills, out of a tola proposed expenditure of m o r than 4 mills on all the propertj of the state. In view of the fact Iowa's share of the bonus and benefit appro priations already made by con gress for returning service peopli is some $80,000,000 the associatioi . said, it considered it unlikely tha added bonuses will be given, bu expressed a feeling that the $501 property tax exemption already in force for World war I veteran^ will be extended to veterans o the present war.
