Taxes will go up Down next year Washington up tax cuts totalling billion will go into effect next Don t cheer yet. Federal taxes also will go up an estimated billion. The apparent contradiction arises from separate congressional actions in 1964 and this year. First the lawmakers enacted a two stage reduction in excise taxes but during the last session they raised social Security contributions and added taxes for the new medicare program. While this May strike some persons As a Case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing it s Only fair to say As president Johnson did recently that taxes have been reduced by almost billion during the past four years. As things stand 1966 is not shaping up As another big tax Cut year along the lines of 1964 and 1965.

This year people enjoyed the second billion stage of the 1964 act As Well As the first billion stage of the excise tax reduction. The Only Windfall now in the works for 1966 is the second stage of the excise tax another billion Worth.
