"There was a feeling act so long ago that tbe political sight- mare knoTro. as tax reform had eaded with tbe pre-Qiristnias closure proceedJsgs in tbe Hoose of ComiBces and tbe last, vain senatorial protests. If many were displeased, at kast tbe work TPSS done aad ciczers, beoomiEg accustomed to the new Act would matters in a better perspective scd ac- quire a deeper appreciation of, tbe wisdom of its authors. First reactions to tbe new forms have not been reassuring. But this was to be expected. Tbe failure rate, even with tbe old and more or less familiar forms, was distressingly high; a fact repeatedly soted by the de- partment of national revenue. Previews, in this SeM, are not likely to via tbe best respocse; ooiy a educational effort (coWj'presuniably. in toe offing) will induce a mere posi- tive attitude on the part of mo- rose and apprebertsve citizens. It is much more discoscertisg to be warned, in advance of tbe exercise, that we are not up to it. Earlier suggestions to that effect coold be, and probably discounted; they came, after all, from critics, lawyers, politicians. To bear the same thing from the experts; those, presumably, who guided Edgar Benson's pen; is a matter and thoroughly unset- tling. According to Elgin Ann- stroag. the depsty minister of catiocial revenue: 'Taxpa y e r s who have become accustomed to using tbe Tl short form may weS be shaken at first glance with tbe new comhiaed form." It is far from certain thai a second, glance wiH have a steadying effect For D. S. Thorson, the deputy minister of justice, who also attended the Canadian Tax Foondatioa con- ference last week, conceded thai the Act is not likely to be grasped even by lawyers and accountants with the exception of those who "by virtue of sheer hard work have gamed some scedai understanding of its basic principles." What then of the rest of us? Our chances, ac- cording to Mr. TborsotL are nB. The reason 5s interesting; it is simply "the innate compkritv of any income tax law in a modem ipdijstrial society, par- ticularly its oetaflTTtg of capital "Do you have anything for someone who's sick cf all those Christmas commercials World now getting truth about IRA Correspondents report as if the ISA.
