Slit Tako. n single mall who tins been making $3,00(1 steadily for years . ..lie finds the t a x - o n his 1051 in. come.wiis 17 per ecu! higher than · on 1050 Income and 22 per Lent more than on IMO income. And the lax on hi* 1052 income will be 33 pel cent greater than flic tax on his IBM income. The lux varies by- individuals 'and income. I'm- example: Tnke · · n single man who hits been making '-" $15,000 Btcndlly for years. The lax - In )ds,li)(il Income VMS 12.5 per rcnl more than on 11)50 Income nnri 10.3 per, r e n t - m o r e than on 1949 income. And the tax on ld.« 11)52 income will bo 27.3 per cent nliovc that on his I94II Income. Two Raises Mere is how \vo got Into this fix. After the war--taxes reached their' peak In 1044 and 104D-- Congress cut (axes twice. But in ;£ ; tlic past IB months it has raised " " them twice. · Tiic first cut WHK on 11)40 and . ]047 income. Then Congress cut , still further on 1D48 and J U 4 I I income to the lowest postwar point. ... But in Ihe fall of 11)50,. after · Korea, Congress uppcd the tux and "then, In the fall of 1051, boosted il again. .. , fiio lax Increase in late IBM * ' applied lo Ihe last three months nC " ·;' J850. Bo Ihe tax you paid In 1051, on 1050 income, was higher than Hie tax you paid in '11100 on 1041) ; income.' . ... .The increase approved in 1950, ..(,. while affecting only three monllis .-. · .of your 1040 .income, was to lake -· -full effect In 11)51, covering your · Incomi for all 12 months" of Iflsi. ·· Bui when Congress stepped In · again in the fall of 1051 with "- still another increase, it said the · ·- new higher lax would apply lo Ihe .. · last two months of 1951 income ····- an.rl all 12 monlhs of 1052 Income. . · ; So you can ccc how the lax you pay now In 1952 on 1951 in'.. come has shot up above the tax i you paid In 1951 on 1050 income. " And In 1953, when you pay your lux on 1952 income, II will be even · higher than the tax you're paying in 1052 on 1051 Income.
