Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - March 18, 1966, Bennington, Vermont Bennington Banner Friday March 18, 1966-3 new up to Date fax Law places Vermont in select category Moulton proposes cooperative advertising by w Illi am Blachly Montpelier a it May not make the Best seller list for readability but according to those who know the recently enacted tax Reform measure puts Vermont in a select category of states which have taken their haphazard tax Laws and put them in order. Vermont tax statutes have been described As being in a terrible disarray Quot plagued by internal inconsistencies and the result of a process of accretion going Back Many years. A year ago prof. Norman red Lech of the new York University Law school made the preliminary draft for a wholly revised tax Law. His work amended by tax commissioner Gerald s. Witherspoon and his Deputy Johnathan Brownell. A leading tax expert Arthur Roemer of the Minnesota tax department reviewed the result. Before the Bill finally presented to the legislature it reviewed by a tax committee of the Vermont bar association. All of this did not result in i local action development Montpelier a Vermont development commissioner Elbert g. Moulton is hoping that in the absence of a state Industrial Park authority local development groups will proceed to build their own speculative Quot Shell Quot buildings. Quot Well slow Down some Quot Moulton s comment on the failure of the legislature to pass a Bill that would Lave created a Vermont Industrial Park authority. The Bill ran into heavy opposition from rep. Daulton Mann r-25, of Peru chairman of the House banking and corporations committee who claimed it poorly drafted. Mann said he favors the Bill a purpose but that it too important to be left in the condition in which it submitted. Moulton admitted also that the Bill drawn in taste during final Days of the session. He wants to see it redrafted and plans to meet with All Industrial development groups in the state to generate support for the idea in the 1967 session. The new Law is needed Moulton reiterated because Vermont does not have enough adequate buildings to offer the Many Industrial prospects the state is getting. He contends that a modern one Story Quot Shell Quot building of about 50,000 Square feet would easily attract a business that is anxious to expand to a Rural area that offers Good living conditions. There is an Industrial building authority but it has no Power to spend funds on speculative structures. Moulton said however that he is looking into the possibility of using Federal Community facilities funds to use for Industrial Park developments. Moulton added that he Hopes the Bennington county Industrial corp., which has already built two successful speculative buildings a one housing Vermont Container corp. And the other the state Highway department Headquarters a will be Able to put up a third building. 154 forests the Forest service a Branch of the department of agriculture administers 154 National forests covering 182 million acres in 39 states. Earth a shaking changes for the average vermonter. He will continue to pay his taxes and to file his return much As he always has. Changes which will have Impact on business and Industry however Are considerable. New companies in Vermont will be permitted to spread their losses through several years instead of having to pay the entire amount in erne year. All corporations doing business in Vermont will find their paper work lessened and simplified. The new Vermont code is based on the most recent Federal internal Revenue code and not on the code of 1947, As previously. Mining and Quarry industries will be Able to get depletion allowances As they now do under Federal tax Law. Self employed taxpayers should Welcome the new code. They now have to pay three fourths of their taxable liability in sixty Days a Between april 15 and june 15. The new code allows them to make the first payment by june 15 for the Quarter and to pay the balance Over the next six months. This is possible because of the new data processing equipment in use at the tax department. Another advantage for the self employed taxpayer is that he will be Able to stagger his payments no longer will his Federal and state payments come due at the same time.

The tax department in the future is going to accept a taxpayer s last year s income figure Ashi estimate of current year expected income. Even of the current year is considerably different it will be accepted. But of a taxpayer still wishes to make an estimate he is permitted to do so As at present. The new code provides a Clear Appeal procedure. In the past an Appeal on the merits of a Case might be brought months after the initial complaint by the tax department. Now the taxpayer is provided with a specified time schedule which demands action on a Case before the facts become difficult to ascertain. Officials of the tax department foresee increased collection from out of state tax evaders because of a clause providing for reciprocal collection procedures with some 40 states. Heretofore it has been impossible to collect taxes owed the state by out of states because Vermont has not allowed tax collectors from other states to pursue their Quarry Here. Only Alaska has a code As up to Date As Vermont s. Montpelier a a new phase of the development department s Quot calling All vermonters Quot project is being started by commissioner Elbert g. Moulton. The idea will be Moulton said to engage in a cooperative advertising program with industries in certain cities which have been seeding workers with ads in papers such As the new York times. The development department will act As coordinator with industries in one City at a time boosting each City in advertisements As a Good place to live and listing Job opportunities that Are open there. It should be More effective according to Moulton than single ads because it would offer a possible Job seeker various choices and would let him know that if he find a Job that suited him say at ism in Burlington he could try be. The companies would look Over Job resumes that come into the development departments office in Montpelier and the state Agency would set up interviews in new York or other location. Moulton said the Cost per Job applicant would be from $8 to $10. This compares he declared with sums of up to $2,000 that companies have been known to spend wooing a Job candidate paying his expenses for an interview and sending personnel to meet him. Quot by helping existing Industry to hire people Quot Moulton said Quot we have a natural role in this employment the commissioner added that his department is the Only one equipped for this kind of project. Because the department of employment Security uses Federal funds he said it cannot advertise outside Vermont. In other words it is forbidden to spend Federal Money to promote Vermont in Connecticut or new York. The Quot calling All vermonters Quot project started last fall in an Effort to get former vermonters to return is Quot going great guns Quot according to Moulton. Returns thus far total 8,591 inquiries of whom about 900 have sent Job resumes. The University of Vermont has hired six said Moulton who is compiling data on where others have been hired already. Many Vermont businesses have returned inquiries to the development department saying that they wish to receive resumes from persons seeking the kind of work they offer. Many inquiries come from Blue Collar workers and Many in the 25 to 35 age bracket. Quot that a the kind we want Quot commented leaving Vermont for Lack of opportunities. Interest is also shown by older persons thinking of retirement. Moulton claims the situation has changed in the last couple of years that not so Many Young people Are leaving. Quot All we ask is that they look at Vermont first Quot he says. Quot we also need closer cooperation Between Vermont industries and High school guidance the 8,591 replies came from persons responding to ads in 23 newspapers in the Northeast. The ads Cost a total of $6,976.10, or a Cost per inquiry of 81 cents. Newspapers in which ads were placed in Boston Springfield new Bedford fall River Worcester. Lynn and Lawrence mass.
