ASPER A recent incident, undoubtec ly one of many to come, poin out the difficulty created b the federal government's rig timetable for implementing i tax reform legislation. Last week this column di cussed some of the ramific tions and difficulties some ta payers may encounter regan ing the forthcoming capit gains tax, particularly with r spect to the concept of valu tion day. It was suggested tli taxpayers will be required choose one of two methods fo valuing their now. taxable cap tal asset either on th basis of their cost or nt the fair market value on valuatio day. According to the interpret tion we placed on the govern ment's intention, a taxpaye could choose only one of th two valuation methods and a ply the valuation technique all assets and not use the selectively. This interpretatio was shared by several com mentatcrs. However, feder Finance Minister Benson ha rejected this interpretation the new rules, stating that is the government's intentio that for valuing one's capita assets at January 1, 1972, tl taxpayer can place eithe value, cost or fair mark value, on any of his assets a he sees fit. Wbile this more liberal inte pretation of the new rules welcome, it in no way min mizes the problem it illu trates, namely, the new legi lation is so complex and a mils of so many possible intc pretations that professional a< visers are at a loss as to b< able to digest the tax bill an interpret its consequences most experts try needed to confidently inter- ing change in (ax law ever in- tain a ruling on how the new pret the new legislation. troduced all at one time in the will apply to a transaction GIVING UP history of the Canadian sys- he is contemplating.

CONFUSION REIGNS From coast to coast Canada ablest tax authorities are shal ing their heads in amazemei and confusion as they manfull attempt to digest the massiv new tax bill. Those who ven ture to suggest they fully com prehend the massive new sys tern are few indeed. To the layman this situatio seem absurd. After all, th law is the law and anyon trained in interpreting comple statutes should be able to gras the new concept.1; readily. Bu there's the rub. The new legis lation is based on concepts an legal techniques previously un known in Canadian experienc? The legislation awards majo powers of discretion to govern ment officials in applying th law, abounds in intricate for mulae for calculating taxabl income and uses wordin which makes comprehension difficult. While the new law is an accountant's nightmare as wel as masy a lawyer's nemesis this is nnot to suggest that i won't work, it is even possib] that given a few dozen reac ings, accompanied by explana cartoons, graphs, demon stations and government inter pretation bulletins, the new may even be well understoot one day by as many as severa dozen legal scholars. But for the Canadian taxpay er who derive his income from more than Straight salary, i will be many years he or his professional advisers can master the combination of ca] culus, philosophy and Grain quotas open WINNIPEG (CP) Opening quotas for the 1971-72 crop year were announced todav by the Canadian Wheat Board. The list of quotas, which went into effect at the start of (lie crop year Aug. 1, included Ihe first quotas for wheat and barley to be established under the new non-cumulative system. Separate quotas, effective ji all blocks, were authorized for (laxsecd, rapeseed and rye. While the non-cumulative quotas for wheat and barley were authorized only in a selected number of shipping blocks, the wheat taard said it is expected they wil. be extended to all blocks before the end of August. The non-cumulative quotas, which will be applied only to wheat, oats and bflr.'ey, arc designed to encourage producers to deliver the kind and quantities of grain in Ihe periods when it is needed lo meet sales commitments, or Co build up necessary inventory stocks. board said no quotas will be terminated before Oct. 31 and warnings will be issued well in advance of [lie closing date for each quota. As each quota is established, it will be labelled by the name of the grain lo which it applies and nn alphabetical IcUcr. The opening quotas for (lie new crop will be labelled Wheat A, Barley A and so on. Subsequent quotas will have a different letter designation to enable producers to clearly distinguish one quota from another, as two or more quotas for a particular grain may be in effect at one time. In the 1071-72 crop year, for the first time, producers will be ible to deliver rye to any country elevator in Ihe wheat board's designated area. In Ihe pasl, this applied only lo rape-seed and flax.
