PAGB TWELVB BLYTHEVTLLK (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS TUESDAY, DECEMBER 9, 1947 New Income Tax Cut Plan Offered Bonds That Equalled Reductions Would Be Given for Future 1 Use By Dayton Moore (United Press Staff Correspondent) WASHINGTON, Dec. 0 (UP) — Republican leaders In Congress yesterday were studying a plan whereby individuals would get income tax reduction In the form of ( bonds to be cashed In at some future time. GOP sentiment toward the propo- aal was mixed. Chairman Eugene D. Milllkin, R.. Colo., of the Senate Finance Committee said, that at any rat* It would "answer the Treasury's arguments that an income tax cut would be Inflationary" by Increasing purchasing power. Under the plan, Congress woiild decide how much personal income taxes would be cut. But Instead of any immediate. cash savings, the taxpayer would get non-negotiable, non-tronatfcrable bonds equal to the amount of the tax reduction In his case. It would be a government "I. O.U." The" taxpayer would not be able to cash in the bonds for some period to be determined. Thus, acordlng to' supporters of the, plan, It would overcome Treasury objections to an Immediate cut in tax rates. Study Plan Thi« Week Senate »nd House Republicans arc expected to take up the plan at an anti-inflation meeting later this week. The opponents contend a regular tax cut next year would reduce rather than Increase inflationary pressures.. They say it would in. crease a worker's, take-home pay and thus help'stop the-merry-go-round of demands for higher wages to take care of the higher cost of living. Minikin approved the basic provisions of the reviseS tax reduction program advanced by Chairman Harold KunUon, R., Minn, of the House Ways and Means Committee. It would raise personal exemptions from $500 to $600 a year, extend community property benefits to married coiiples in all states (and also cut ineome ;\axe» by a still-to-be determined percentage. However, Milllkin-said he was not yet ready to go along on the total i4,000,0(M>,000-a-year l cut proposed Knutsoh. He said the decision on the amount should be delayed until a belter estimate could be made on government spending next year. Sen. Walter K. George. D., Ga., has sugested that President Truman and the Republicans compromise on a 13,000,000.000 tax cut. But Indications are that the president is nol yet ready to accept any cut.
