Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - January 14, 1936, Mason City, Iowa MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE JANUARY 14 1936 WOULD BAR AAA TAXES REFUNDS Move Begun to Pass Law to Put Impounded Funds in Treasury WASHINGTON Jan 14 move was started on capitol hill to day to empower the treasury to re tain or collect all of the 000 in taxes levied on processors o farm products under the invalidate AAA Senator Bankhead D Ala powerful in agricultural councils in congress proposed that the process ing taxes be reenacted retroactive ly as a general revenue measure he contended would be con stitutional The high court invali dated the AAA tax plan as part ol an unconstitutional program to reg ulate agriculture Would Retain Money If such a measure as Bankheads should psas and stick the treas ury would retain the already collected to finance benefit payments to farmers under the crop control program outlawed by the su preme court Moreover processors who will col lect 5200000000 in impounded taxes under a ruling by the high court yesterday would have to turn the money into the treasury Unanimously the court handed down an opinion under which pro cessors will receive back the 000000 paid into depositories under the direction of power courts in which they had brought legal ac tions against the AAAs constitu tionality Question Not Decided The court did not decide the ques tion whether processors in suing to recover the already collected must first prove they did not pass the levy on to consumers or farmers AAA amendments which the gov ernment considers still valid requirs them to prove this Amid the tremendous taxami farm tangle there were many reactions to the high courts latest ruling Several senators among them Borah of Idaho expressed belief that those who fought the tax were largely big taxpayers They indicated concern that the small businessman who paid without fighting might lose out Find It Difficult All experts agree that many pro cessors would find it difficult if not impossible to demonstrate legally that they had borne the burden themselves It seems to me Borah said that in the light of the courts de cision we ought to have some legis lation making it more practicable for the small fellows who havent lieeo able to contest the matter to get back their outlay assuming they havent passed it on HUGHES BEATS TURNER RECORD Continued From Pase 1 fine and am
