FRIDAY," SEPTEMBER 15, 1950 T/w Notion Today: Your Hew Tax Boost, Oct. J— U.S. Machinery All Set to Take More Money from Paycheck BLYTHEVTILB (ARK.) COURIER NEWS BT JAMES MARLOW WASHINGTON, Sept. 15. </P/— Everything Is ready—when Congress gives the go-ahead—for the boss to take the'new and higher out of your paycheck, starting 'ngress hasn't yet finally approved the bill to do that. And therefore the President hasn't been able to sign It into law. But there's plenty as time to" do that before Oct. 1. And no hitch is expected. Ever since 1943 the boss, under law. has 'been withholding taxes from your pay. He has been using a table provided by the Internal Revenue Bureau's tax collectors. This table shows: How much tax should be deducted from each worker's pay, depend- how many exemptions he has, such ing on how much he makes ami as a wife or a dependent child. New Tables Needed With this new boost going into effect, new tables were needed. As mentioned, the deductions are supposed to start Oct. i although Congress has not yet formally approved the new tax. If the tax collectors waited until this formal approval was given, they wouldn't have time to get the new tables set up. printed, and mailed out to employers all over the United States by Oct. i: So the tax collectors had to -take a chalice—but not much of & chance, as you'll see—and act as though the tax bill' already had been approved. They had 3,000,000 copies of ihe tables printed. , These have been shipped out to ^U 61 district offices of the In- ^IfVul Revenue Bureau, waiting to be. mailed to employers in each district. And they will be mailed •s soon u the tax raise becomes Here \ls The Background This is the background on' what has happened: • Before 'the Korean shooting started, the House passed a bill to cut the excise tax .on such things as theater tickets, women's handbags, «nd so ori. This was strictly « bill to cut taxes. This bill then went over to the Senate for approval. But then we got Into the Korean fight and had to start re-arming, To pay for this rearming, the President said taxes had to be raised: on individuals and corporations. - ' Since this meant more taxes, not less,'were needed, the Senate-junked the House bill and got to work on one of Its own. The Senate bill left excise, taxes uncut, but raised the tax on Individuals and businesses Bill PUM> Senate t Thi«'bill passed'trie Senate Sept. ^k It was understood' the House ^V>uld approve this Senate bill and that it would become law.

Leigh Calvin, head of the WCT0 which is In convention here, on the senate bill. Some members of the House kicked up their heels, not wanting to approve the Senate bill unless both House and Senate agreed to impose an excess profits tax on corporations right away. This was looked upon as i last- ditch stand, not a real stumbling block, for president Truman and his Democratic congressional leaders agreed there should be an excess profits tax but that it can be passer! next January. The House, though went on record as wanting action before then. But it did not hold up the general tax bill. Therefore everyone, Including the tax collectors, sat back confident that the tax-raising bill, as passed by the Senate, would become law without much real difficulty, although slow in being done. said yesterday that one-fourth of the country, by area, containing one-fifth of the population, is now dry or bans hard liquor by loc»J option.
