People with taxable income up to now may use the tables to determine their tax at a rather than figure it out provided they meet the qualifications for using the tables. In another Alberta this year joined those 'provinces in which the federal government administers property tax credits.

FOUND IMPRACTICAL It was also found imprac- they to cut down the nine tax schedules mailed to all taxpayers even though everyone doesn't need them all. Mr. Stanbury said inter- national tax experts had told him that Canada's income tax forms and tax guide are among the simplest anywhere.

OTTAWA Two senior Conservatives attacked Donald Macdonald's credibili- ty as energy minister one asking that Prime Minister Trudeau fire him from the portfolio. Gerald Baldwin told the Commons that the public no longer trusts Mr. Macdonald and asked Mr. Trudeau to replace him. the former Con- servative House leader told reporters that Finance Minister John Turner perhaps should take over the post. But the criticism was slapped aside by Mr. Trudeau who called Mr. Baldwin's judgment and and he refused to consider his complaints.

Throughout the controver- Mr. Macdonald has in- sisted that his position would be clear if MPs read all his statements in context. John Diefen- baker refused to say whether he sup- ports his colleagues in their criticism of the minister.
