Rock Valley Bee (Newspaper) - January 30, 1947, Rock Valley, Iowa Oars Badly Damaged Saturday p.m Four Autos Damaged in 2 n i fit Francis Hudson route and a campanion were cut about the face and bruised when their car top a 1937 Chevy collided with the 1938 Packard driven by Ellis Skiles who lives with his family at the Warren here Mrs Skiles arid children were also the Packard but none were injured Whitehorn blamed bright lights for his inability to avoid the crash Damage to cars is QAA extensive Photo Senator J T Dykhouse Writes Of Plan for Ic More Sales Tax Des Moines Ta 25 1947 Dear I arn writing a few lines in re- gard to a few of the important matters that will be taken up at this session of the legislature biggest one of these will be the income lax it should be retained at the 50 per cent rate or allowed to go to 100 per cent The one in- lowers that rate 50 per cent gives the executive council permission to raise it to 100 per cent in case of an emer gency It is hard to tell just what the legislature will do Many m the Senate seem to think that as long as per cent income tax rate brings in just as much or more money as the 300 per cent does in normal times it should be retained at 50 per cent Then too even at the Cent rale income tax is er than any other state in the union with the exception of three or four states I introduced a to eliminate the personal income tax and low the Federal Government to have this field and have the State add one cent additional sales tax I am not in any way pushing this and feel that it will not pass I realise that this sales tax appears as though it is taxing the man but most of us know that if we will stop to that any tax imposed upon a man manufacturer or corporation is passed on to the consumer by adding it to the cost of his prod uct The only difference is of course that when the consumer pays the sales tax he notices he is paying a tax while if it is added to the cost of the product does not realize he is paying it v By eliminating the income tax we would save several thous and dollars a year and oE course that would beNj definite saving to all taxpayers especially the consumer The legislature is being con- fronted with demands for in- creases in salary from every de- and the Senate has de- to refer all these requests io one committee and will con- sider no new requests after ruary 21 This committee will then them and adopt the proposal Senator has outlined above does pass and the in- come lax is decreased There still remains the emergency clause which would present and may at some future date be enacted ing us both the sales lax and the higher In- come tax We agree that the cost of legislation has gone up along with so many other things but we do not it has gone up to such a degree that a little paring could not be done where foolish ing has been doing away with a great share of the dollars that are poured into the state treasury department The largest kick against an increase in sales tax or sales tax for thai matter is that there are no lines drawn as to whai should be for example is a viral necessity 46 life and health and should not he taxed in any way Legislation when ing to taxes especially where the voters are urged to accept them as strictly emergency measures should be just that and carry a terminating date extended only if the need and emergency still truly exists The financial condition of all stales on average is considered to-be good and Iowa can be included in the upper brackets Therefore where pray the gency and is an emergency where Rock Valley Bee Covers
