(AP Wirephoto) Taxpayers Net Gains In Proposed Reforms By JOE HALL WASHINGTON The take-home pay of America's 70 million indi- vidual taxpayers will take four jumps upward by 1972 linger the latest version of the 'mammoth tax reform bill- Ends Hearings The. Senate Finance Commit- tee, ending two months of hear- ings, and closed discussions, vot- ed Friday lo .report the broadest tax.'eode; revision n the nation's suggestions -for cuts up itA down the entire spectrum of Income tax rates get past the Senate, a conference committee with, the, House and President Nixonj. they, will begin a series of tax. cuts that could be worth several hundred dollars a year to millions-of taxpayers. The: first will come Jan. 1 according to the Nixon administration scenario, the in- come tax surcharge will drop to 5 per ceiit from its present 10 per cent. The second will come .next June 30, when the 5 per cent surtax-will expire. The; third will take place Jan. 1, 1171, .when the first stage of the tax rate cut in the bill is ef- fective and the last one year lat- er with a second reduction larg- er than the first. Deipite the fact that the Treasury Department had only mixeii success in getting its rec- ommendations adopted, Secre- M. Kennedy compli- mented the committee "on its major contribution to. the case of tax reform." In its final form, the commit- tee's measure would provide 91 billion of individual tax relief compared with J9.3 billion in the bill the House passed in August, and would gain (6.5 billion from reforms compared to (6is billion for the House version. Although the principle of tax relief is widely accepted, strong effort to change the way it is given are certain to be .made when thei reaches 'thy full Senate. But if the entire-body accepts the committee plaii, the provisions are virtually certain to be retained intact in the final bill sent to Nixon. The reason is that the panel adopted almost without chssga the House approach to relief, and thus there would be little to settle in conference.' The relief includes billion from a cut of at least 1 percent- age point in all tax rates, a new Sl.lOO low-income allowance to aid 12 million poverty-level fam- ilies which v.ill cost billion, a billion boost in the mini- mum standard deduction and a million cut in taxes for sin- gle persons. Reductions Noted The Senate bill would mean these reductions'for a man and wife with two dependents: annual income, present tax wiped out. in- come, present tax cut to income, present tax ditto income, present tax cut to For single persons, a new rate schedule would bring these cuts: income, present tax cut to in- come, present tax cut to income, present tax' cut to Some committee members said they doubted that the Sen- ate could pass it this year al- though Democratic Leader Mike Mansfield has said he plans to bring it up if possible before Congress quits in December. In any event, the measure still would be on the Senate cal- endar ready for debate when the second session of the 91st Congress convenes in January. Many senators not on the Committee have said they plan to offer a broad variety of re- form measures not now in the bill when it comes to the floor. There will be a renewed fight, narrowly lost in the committee, to try to substitute an increase in the personal exemption for the rate cuts in the bill. But jn general Finance's re- form provisions: are less harsh than the House efforts to end tax abuses. This applies to mineral deple- tion allowances, farm losses, capital gains, conglomerates, and banks and saving and loan associations. Finance generally softened the tax provisions for founda- tions but wrote into the bill a 40-year limitation on their life which the House version lacks.

The report, withheld from Congress by the Department of Transportation until yesterday, says the huge engines of the new plane threaten to produce "intolerable" rioise levels, its economic success is 'highly questionable arid that if it does succeed it could worsen the U.S. trade' balance deficit because Americans will be its chief users.
