TWO BLTTHEVILLE (ARK-) COURIER NBW| SATURDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1947 tax Structure Changes Sought Toxpaym. Group ' Juki Mora Benefit ••• FWM Taxee Paid. UTTU ROCK, Ark., Dec. t. (UP)—The board of director* ol the 'Arkansas Public Expenditure Council has announced that It will appoint committees to study and report on a number of suggested /*.nf^ m the Arkansas tax structure, * : Outstanding among -the proposed changes were reductions In Die amount' of the cigarette, alcohol ' beverage, and gasoline taxes. • As the result of an extended study,'the organisation heard reo- ommendstipn* that cigarette taxes ahould be reduced to Jour cents a pack. It was also suggested that the levy* on alcohol beverages be reduced by the percentage necessary to offset the. application to liquor sales of the grow receipt tax. The cut In 'gasoline taxes would be offset by an Increase in the license fees on trucks, trailers and busses Using the itate highways. Farm and Industrial vehicles which only Infrequently use the highways woefcl be granted a special rate, according to the proposal. Another ot the proposals Is that the pari-mutuel tax be Increased from five to seven and one halt per cent, with a corresponding reduction In ' the percentage taken out by the track. And the state would take all of the odd cents known as 'breakage," instead of splitting with the track. ' Further recommendations concerned- eliminating the dltlerenpe between state and .federal tncoma taxes, and also the use by Arkansas of a simplified tax form for Ill- Ing returns^ Council Executive Director Sam Hays said the recommendations will.' neither" Increase nor decrease the total atate tax revenue.
