State tax decision Mounting appropriations have exceeded the capacity of the state government's general revenue tax structure 1 to meet revenue requirements, making a tax increase, probably a large one, likely, Missouri Public Expenditure Survey said in a report released Wednesday. Appropriations for general purposes this fiscal year exceed revenues by $67 million- million for operating purposes and $35 million for capital outlay, the report said. The deficit is being financed this year from an accumulated balance, but next year a continuing source of additional tax revenues REAL ESTATE Grandview Investment to Darrell Havener and wife, 176 acres in Sections 26, 27 and 35, Township 41, Range 13.

Any above-normal expansions of state services, will additional further revenue enlarge re- the quired, the report said.

Such expansion, it noted, is embodied in proposals being put forward to provide greater aid for schools with economically disadvantaged pupils and to share school costs on a 50-50 basis between the state and school districts. Supplying state aid in an amount equal to present local tax revenues would require, added state expenditures approximating $90 million annually, the study said. In future years it would cost more. Several other expansions may be in prospect, the report said. It noted that formation of additional junior college districts coupled with mushrooming enrollments may bring faster than normal increase in state aid to these institutions.

The federal government is turning over more of the cost of medicaid to the state government. And the state government is considering providing education for a larger number of medical students. The report also noted that, without an accumulated balance, revenues will also have to be provided to finance the state's building program. From $20 million to $60 million annually has been appropriated for this purpose in recent years, a total of $213 million in the last 10 years. The amount placed in the state budget for building purposes will need to be substantial, the report said, regardless of whether current revenues are utilized or a bond issue is employed.

If a bond issue plan is adopted, revenues will have to be provided for interest costs, which are at a high level, as well as for debt retirement, the report pointed out. The report said it is too early to determine the precise amount of revenue the state government will require, but that it seems apparent that the amount will be substantial and that a major source of revenue will be needed. Taking into consideration the taxes Missourians pay to all governments, the report said, the most logical choice for a principal source of added revenue is the sales tax, Missourians, the report said, are paying 12 timsales much in income taxes as taxes. Of the taxes paid by Missouri taxpayers, three--income, property, and sales- -emerge as major sources of revenue for general government purposes, the report said. The income tax, which is largely pre-empted by the federal government, accounts for 67 per cent of taxes paid by Missourians.

TAXES PAID BY MISSOURI TAXPAYERS TO FINANCE LOCAL, STATE AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT 1968-69 FISCAL YEAR (Amount and Percentage) 523 MILLION PROPERTY 9.8 290 MILLION GENERAL SALES USE 3.6 BILLION 5.5% INDIVIDUAL CORPORATE 196 MILLION INCOME PAYROLL TOBACCO ALCOHOL 3.7% 67.5 283 MILLION HIGHWAY USER 5.3 442 MILLION MISC. 8.3 almost exclusively a local government tax in Missouri; -accounts for 10 per cent. The sales tax, which is the state government's largest tax source, accounts for 5.5 per cent. An additional cent of state sales tax would yield about $100 million while an increase of about 75 per cent in the state income tax would be required to yield that amount, the report said. It is sometimes contended, the report noted, that sales tax should not be utilized as a revenue source because those with lower incomes expend proportionatley more of their income on items to which the tax applies.

That contention loses significance, the report said, when the sales tax is considered in the context of all taxes, rather than in isolation, because it is a minor element in the way the total tax structure affects taxpayers. By far the greater part of total taxes is paid in the form of highly progressive income tax rates, the report said. The report said that the state government's quest for more revenue will be against a background of the recent federal income tax increase, increased social security taxes, rising property and other local taxes and considerable inflation. It noted that social security taxes are scheduled to increase again in January. it said, "are cogent reasons for the state government to exercise restraint in establishing the level of expenditures for the coming year and in taking actions that will affect state expenditure level in the future." Total taxes paid by Missouri taxpayers have more than doubled in.

the last 10 years, the report said, having risen from $2.8 billion in 1958 to $5.3 billion this year. Taxes now take 35 per cent of personal income in te state compared to 27 per cent 10 years ago, the report said, TILTON S.
