In addition exporters got a Federal subsidy a representing the difference Between the Domestic Price and the lower world Price a ranging from 14 cents to 47 cents a Bushel Between july and sept. 22, when the department of agriculture suddenly eliminated this subsidy. If the Treasury rules favourably for the exporters they would also pay no taxes on half the profits they made on wheat sales to other countries. What the exporters seek is to be allowed to take advantage of a provision in the tax Bill passed last december this provision proposed by the Treasury had a twofold objective first to stimulate United states exports and second to offer inducements to american companies not to set up foreign subsidiaries in order to take advantage of provisions in the code that permit these subsidiaries to defer payment of u. S. Taxes on their profits until the profits Are returned to the u. S.

In effect the deferral of taxes on the 50 per cent of profits can be indefinite however the new Law also provided that the Secretary of the Treasury could deny these disc tax benefits if he fould that the profits derived from sales were a accomplished by a subsidy granted by the . Or any instrumentality seemingly this provision would give the Treasury discretionary authority to deny disc benefits to Grain exporters that got an Export subsidy a As the exporters did with sales to the soviet Union however the Grain exporters Are arguing that they should not be excluded from such benefits.
