You, Local or State Government? If You Get Tax Cut, Who'll Spend It? By SAM DAWSON AP Business N»wt Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—If you get that tax cut next year that you've been hearing about ror so long, who Is going to spend it—you or you r sta tc and local governments? Congress may pass an income tax cut for individuals and corporations this 'year or early next year. But the skeptics say the $10 billion or so which the federal government might thus free would just be a sitting duck for state, county or local governments looking for mor e funds they can tap by raising their own tax rates. If so, the end result could be that the taxpayer would end 1904 owing just about as much as ever to one o r another tax collector. One of the big arguments for a federal tax cut^-beyond the natural appeal of any tax cut fry any agency—is that it will tree more spending money. You will be able to buy more things you want, the argument goes, and thereby you will be encouraging more production, more investment in future production, and hence more sorely needed jobs. That, in turn, would add a lot more people to the income tax rolls, and the U.S. Treasury would collect more, even at the reduced rates. But the state and local governments are searching for more revenue to meet the needs of growing communities and to furnish still more services that peo- vle like to have (even if they don't enjoy paying for them).

These will come out of your pocket, leaving just that much less to be spent at the store. Will this nullify the boost to the economic growth rat e that a federal tax cut is supposed to promise? Walter W. Heller says that isn't necessarily so. The chairman of the President's Council of Economic Advisers ar. gues this way: "The boost to over-all demand is the same, whether the federal tax savings are spent directly by taxpayers Page 18 Garden City Telegram Saturday, August 17, 1963 by their state and local governments." He contends that the end result, would be "higher output, more jobs and a greater legacy of real wealth—houses, schools, productive plant and equipment." Heller adds that federal tax cut or no, the increase next year in slate and local tax revenues is expected to approach $3 billion.
