For in stance you could make very slight adjustments in income taxes of $20,000 and above. A a it a very difficult for me to say How this Money would be replaced in the state Treasury. I would want to put together a total budget. A i would first Start on the Side of what i wanted to do for the state a Taylor said. After i had prepared that and added it up then i would go Over to the other Side. This is when i would make decisions. What i returns filed where the net tax would do on the liability he said the current 7 per up with a at least $30 million in when you add their exemptions and so Forth.

I believe we will significant difference Between be state Are in this group cent income tax rate against salaries of $20,000 or More could be increased and because the Federal government out of allows state levies to be deducted on its return Quot a form of Revenue sharing a the blow to upper income persons would be greatly lessened. A High Echelon Taylor staff Likely that you would make cuts in specific areas where you thought there were inequities rather than Cut the total tax Load. I know its popular to say it but i know the demands of our society Are just done to see How we can say that we re going to Cut Back on Bowles a we could Cut taxes when we have paid for All essential had Money left Over. I done to foresee that happening any time soon based on our present the two also answered a question on whether tax increases May be needed. Taylor a reply a i am not go ing to advocate any new taxes. If the services that the people want and need Are that it requires new Money it will not come off the average. The Middle income North Taylor had said earlier in the based on those same facts. Quot i done to believe that it would be helpful for me to speculate As to hypothetical situations in the future involving circumstances not reasonably predicted upon past or existing should live within our present tax program with no new or increased taxes. I think that our tax Structure is basically fair but of course it needs constant study and Taylor has critical words for Bowles proposals too. He said Bowles is critical of Taylor so a he a been talking about to plan to readjust income tax going to save a lot of rates. He said Quot i certainly that sounds great. In a going to have no objection to reducing save a lot of Money. Taxes think for anyone but i done to this is very realistic at a the Hasni to told where he a going to save. And he keeps the present time and i done to talking about there a a credit think or. Taylor does either in a saying is a except As to its political Appeal whole lot More realistic than a i still maintain that we what lie s member said the Point is to Campaign a should it become ing new taxes.
