WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 1950 Arkansan Offers Budget Balancer Representative Mills Would Arrange for Earlier Tax Deadline By Francis JI. u Jlay WASHINGTON, Jan. K-tfl')~ Balancing the federal budget next year by making corporations pay their Income tax sooner was proposed today by Aep. Mills <D-Ark). Mills, a member of tl\e tax-drafting House Ways and Means Committee, said he will present his : plan during committee consideration ot President Truman's lax program. His idea is to require c"5|oralions to pay In Ihe first silSlmonths of a year all the takes due on income ol the previous year. Corporations now can take B whole year to pay the taxes due on income of the previous year. Stepping up the. due date, Mills said, would bring In an additional $-1,800,000,000 during the fiscal year beginning next July I and, with a moderate increase from other tax sources, would erase the expected $5,100,000,000 federal deficit. Committee Chairman Douglitou (D-NC) said the proposal is worthy of consideration. Mills said:.. "H is highly discriminatory against the millions of individual income taxpayers, who now have their federal income taxes deducted Irom their pay checks as it is earned, to permit corporations to continue to use the government's money over the entire year after it | Is earned. "White it may not be feasible I to place corporations on a a completely current 'pay-as-you-go' bas- I is, my bill would be an important I first step in requiring corporations 1 lo pay taxes promptly as soon I as it is possible to determine the I amount of their tax liability."
