28: Gdlesbtirg ReQistef'-Matl^ Golesburg, HI. Thursday,, April 19, 1973 Tax Hole Top Not Enough By DICK WEST WASHINGTON (UPI) - A number of senatcvs in recent days have spoken out on the need for tax reform. The one thing that stands clear from their statements is that they don't really understand the problem. The Lighter Side Senators tend to approach reform from the angle that while their backs were turned some nefarious person or persons unknown infiltrated the Internal Revenue code and riddled it with loopholes. In their view, tax reform is needed to undo the work of highbinders acting at the behest of vested interests. I certainly agree there are elements of inequity in the tax laws. And that something should be done before the phantom loopholer strikes FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Corner of Cherry •nd Tompkins (An American Baptist Church) MAUNDY THURSDAY COMMUNION LUSTER HALL ~ 7:30 P.M. Carlton G. Christenson - James E. Miller Ministers again. But this is not the greatest defect. The Main Problem The main problem rests on the premise that: —People who mean well cause more trouble in this world than those with evil intentions. —True reform must begin by draining the great dismal swamp through which one must slosh in order to pay one's taxes. Believe it or not, our tax forms, which are the verbal equivalent of freshly discarded bubblegum, were not deliberately contrived to vex and nettle you to the point where you break out in hives. It just seems that way. At least 90 per cent of the quagmire was created by efforts to advance through tax breaks, meritorious causes that fail to qualify for direct subsidies. Tax laws are used to abet motherhood, philanthropy, home ownership, scholarship/ dental work, entertdiniitg taisU ness associates, joining the Elks Club and I don't know how many other laudable and uplifting activities. Additionally, new candidates for exemption are nominated almost daily. One Recent Proposal One recent proposal would permit contrnctors to write ofl the cost of installing ramps for the handicapped in new buildings. Another would allow individuals to- deduct certain sums put into retirement funds. These are desirable goals to be sure. But also potential new thorns in the tax form thicket. I can see myself agonizing for hours over whether anything I built during the tax year might conceivably be used as a ramp by the handicapped. No, senators. Merely closing loopholes that compensate fdt cats won't get the job done.
