Senate and House conferees have agreed on abill to limit the states power to tax income of interstate com panies is of particular interest to Mason City Under the proposedbill it would become unlawful for a state to levy imposedvby the state of Minnesota on Northwestern States land Cement Co it maintains a sales office in that state MINNESOTA LEVIED in come taxes against the manufacturer portion oJ its made in Both i the Minriesota e and ruling of the Minnesota tax commission The ruling cost the Mason City firm in taxes as far back as1933 The company maintained that such taxation was unconstitu tional because it was a levy on interstate commerce It argued that all cement was shipped di rectly from the plant in Mason City and the firm had no distri bution point or warehouse in Minnesota The Supreme Court neverthe less held that the states have broad power to tax the income of interstate companies One ruling held that this power ex ists even if the interstate com pany did not have an office within the taxing state THE BILL APPROVED by the congressional conference committee exempts from taxa ion a firm which only solicits orders within the state and whose deliveries are made en
