Danish Vessel \ Charter Slated NEW YORK, Feb. 19—(API—j Shippers said today negotiations • were "practically complete" for the' charter by five American firms of "S Danish ships tied up in this coun- : try since Germany invaded Den- 1 mark.

".'Most people would he clad 1o pay a littlp more than thr new law rails for," he said. "I. figure that I could pay a hundred or so dollars more than I paid last year." "Have you read I IIP new law?" asked Sullivan, who has a penchant for directness. "Yes." "How much did you pay last year?" The man lold him. .Sullivan did snnte quirk calculating. "Can you afford to pay, say, $600 more than you did last year?" The man shook liis head. "That would he. pretty stiff," he said. "Then you'd boiler start fit- urine," Sullivan told him. "That's ahout what you will have to pay." who do pay will turn in an aver-i age of about seven dollars each.; For the 514.000,000 here the treas-j ury figures to get 56-1,000,000 from! the new tax pressure on the upper levels of the normal taxpayers! and SrT7.000.000 from surtax! changes. The rest will come from; the business pick-up which has; lifted incomes. j Up the line a little, along the; lower fringes of the old income: . . r t tax groups, the treasury expects swiftly from the 1939 levels. The find more deductions than it! biggest lax schedule. Here, too, the 10 per cent earned income tax deduction amounts to considerable. But when the income climbs "P toward the surtax levels, there are no more deductions to hide behind; they have all hccn 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 53,000 to St.OOO of laxablc in- romp will ce.t a fairly straight lift in his taxes from the $501) exemption cut. The first $2,000 of taxable income that he has above the S4.000 draws a four per cent surtax, plus the four per cent normal. From this point, the tax steps up • : '"- from the 1939 levels. The increase hits those persons take into account the fact that in one kind-or another last year. better than two thirds of the states! of the United States there is an income tax of varying size to bei added to the federal tax before the| amounts are comparable. The Brit-] ish income tax is paid to the cen-: tral government, and is not dupli-: cated 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 lless than $25,000 a year from a i scale of 12 Vi 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 2t per cent. The British tax is 42 '/• per cent. Up the line in both countries, the excess profits tnx picks up extra earnings. In America, it takes part of them; in Great Britain, all. Neither business nor the sea- All of the returns are checked for errors and given a thorough going; over if anything seems out of order. Like the one in Xew 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-] port to the bureau the amounts! they have paid employees during' the preceding year. The names on| these lists are passed along to the proper offices so that these salaries may be checked against the home, I'll be ruined," he said. The collector checked his files 2 and found the man had been a ~ good taxpayer in the past. He • told him: "You bring the money in when — you can. I'll see that no notices go z to your home." i returns. If a taxable salary shows up and no return comes in, the; bureau finds out why. I The bureau has broad powers to. tie up a man's property legally: ]for nonpayment of taxes, but it jcloses up as few businesses as possible on the theory that when it closes a business it loses a tax- Ipayer. It can be human, too. I Witness the man whose wife handled the household finances. She gave him the money to pay his income tax.
