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 the surtax field the, upper stacks of his income lose this°shield. Thus, the man who has from S3.000 to $4,000 of taxable income will get a fairly straight lift in his taxes from the S500 exemption cut. The first $2,000 of taxable income that he has above the Si.OflO draws a four per cent surtax, plus the four per cent normal.

The treasury expects to get 5800,000,000 more in individual and corporation income taxes this year than it did last. Of this. $330.000,000 will come from individual taxes.

At around the $50,000 level, they have as much as a 13 per cent tax increase over last year. In the income stratosphere, between $100,000 and $5,000,000-plus, there was no change. Already the government was taking from 62 to 79 per cent of all income above those I notches. i A comparison of the tax a mar- I ried person without children would take into account the fact that in better than two thirds of the states of the United States -there is anj income tax of varying size to be added to the federal tax before the amounts are comparable. The Brit- isJi income tax is paid to the central government and is not duplicated locally. Even after that fact is allowed for, the British tax stands well above any combination of state and federal income 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 rates on corporation earnings of less than $25.000 a year from « scale of 12 J /i to 16 per cent to one of 14.85 to 18.7 per cent. The same law lifted the tax on- corporation earnings of more than $25,000 a year from 18 per cent to 20.9 per cent. A month or so later, the excess profits law elevated it to 24 per cent. The British tax is 42% 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. Neither business nor the seasoned taxpayer will do any different this year than usual. They will follow the usual process of filling out their returns and getting them in by March 15 in the case of individual taxes. Many of them will visit their bank or the collector's office to have govern- fill internal revenue bureau, many employees go down to get . this free one kind or another last year. All of the returns are checked for errors and given home, I'll be ruined," he said. The collector checked his files and found the man had been a ment tax experts help them out the blanks.

It can be human, too. Witness the man whose wife handled the household finances. She gave him the money to pay his income tax. But he stayed too long at a bar and then was terrified at the thought of what his wife would say when she learned he had spent the money. He'd rather face the internal revenue collector.
