"Have you read the new law?" asked Sullivan, who has a penchant for directness. "Yes." "How much did you pay last year?" The man told him. Sullivan did some quick calculating. "Can you afford to pay, say, SfiOO more than you did last year?" The man shook his head. "That would he pretty stiff," he said. "Then you'd better start figuring;," Sullivan told him. "That's about what you will have to pay." WASHINGTON. Feb. 19— (AP>— The man who is a little hazy, about the new income tax law hasn't anything to be ashamed of.i Many tax experts are in the same fix. ! One of them—an adviser for a corporation—dropped in a few! days ago to see John L. Sullivan, the assistant secretary of the! better than two thirds of the states! of the United States there is an! , M } °' the returns are * " Danish Vessel Charter Slated NEW YORK.

The rest will come from jthe business pick-up which has lifted incomes. Up the line a little, along the lov . tax schedule. Here, too, the 10 per icent earned income tax deduction amounts to considerable. But when the income climbs up toward the surtax levels, there are no more deductions to hide behind; they have all been worn threadbare. Not more than $14,000 of income is considered as earned and after a man gets well into thc surtax field the upper stacks of his income lose this shield. Thus, the man who has from $3,000 to 54,000 of taxable income will get a fairly straight lift in Ills taxes from the S500 exemption cut. The first S2.000 of taxable income that he has above thc $4,000 draws a four per cent surtax, plus the four I per cent normal. From this noint, the tax steps - - added to the federal tax before the! amounts are comparable. The Brit-l ish income tax .is paid to the central government and is not duplicated locally. Even after that fact: is allowed for. the British taxi stands well above any combination: of state and federal mcome taxes! that can be mustered, particularly! in the lower and middle levels. ; On the corporation side of the) income picture, the laws of last year applied two new layers of taxes. The June tax law raised the the one in New York in which a man deducted so much amusement tax that the auditor, after a liberal calculation in favor of the taxpayer, figured that if the man had used that many tickets, he would have had to spend every hour of every day of the year in a theater. Businesses are required to re-j port to the bureau the amounts they have paid employees during the preceding year. The names on 'home, I'll be ruined," he said. i The collector checked his files land found the man had been a i good taxpayer in the past. He told him: 1 "You bring the money in when iyou can. I'll see that no notices go i to your home." scale of 12 V* to 16 per cesst to one of 14.85 to 1S.7 per cent. The same law lifted the tax on corporation earnings of more than $25,000 a year from 38 per cent to 20.9 per cent. A month or so later, the ex. cess profits law elevated it to 24 per cent. The British taxis 42 V< per cent. Up the line in both countries, the excess profits tax picks up' extra earnings. In America, it takes part of them; in Great Britain, all.
