President Eyes Tax Increase WASHINGTON (UPI) -Fed- eral Reserve Chairman Arthur M. Burns told Congress Wednesday President Nixon is considering proposing a tax increase to combat inflation. Burns told the House Banking and Currency Committee that during a private meeting Tuesday Nixon "showed consid- erable when Burns advocated raising taxes siphon off excess purchasing power" and cool off an erheated economy. Later he told reporters that Nixon did not commit himself to submitting a tax bin to Congress. But he said he "would not be surprised" if Nixon did so. On Monday in a new "state of the address, Nixon said, "This administration continues its strong opposition to a tax increase." Burns mentioned two. types of tax increases, both of which he has championed for months as anti-inflation devices: temporary increase m individuals' income tax rates which would be refunded, with interest, when inflation tapers off and the economy again needs stimulation. This would amount to a compulsory sav- ings program for taxpayers. plan to permit the President to vary the rate of the investment tax credit between 3 and 15 per cent, depending upon whether the economy needs cooling off or stimulation. The investment tax credit is a spur to economic expansion. Burns declined to answer to questions from congressmen to go into details about his conversation with Nixon. I can report to you is that he showed considerable sympathy for the kind of tax measures I was talking about to him." he said. He said the variable invest- ment tax credit idea "figured heavily in our conversation." The existing, inflexible tax credit permits businesses to subtract from taxes owed 7 per cent of the -cost of new equipment. This has sened as a powerful stimulus to invest- ment in new equipment and to an economy rthich many- economists consider over- heated.
