II. ASPER Ontario's proposals for a new small business tax system will give tax analysts many sleep- less nights before an objective evaluation and consensus is reached. Using an investment tax credit approach, they are far more complex, though beneficial to the small busi- ness operator, than the Fed- eral Government's tax pro- posal. Because of their complexity and the care with which they have been devised, one cannot do their authors justice by at- tempting to summarize them briefly. Their result is to re- move the harshness of the fifty per cent tax rate proposed by the Federal Government, and replace it with a tax incentive system which will have a much more narrow application than the present tax system. In oth- er words, a compromise. Like any compromise, the Ontario plan has both defects and virtues. Its most serious obstacle to gaining public ac- ceptance will be its complex- ity; for regardless of how in- genious or inventive -a plan might be, if its adoption means that all small business opera- tors will have to go back to Uie classroom in order to live with it, there will be resistance. The present basis for taxing small business is undoubtedly imperfect, but at least it is re- latively simple and widely un- derstood by the affected tax- payer. Corporations are taxed at 20 per cent, plus Provincial tax and surtax, on the first of profits, and at 50 per cent (plus) on earnings above that. When the company pays out those after-tax profits to its shareholders, they p a y a sec- ond tax. Under Finance Minister Ben- son's year-old proposals, the low rate of tax on the first 000 of profits would be abolish- ed. All private company earn- ings would, in effect, be taxed at the personal tax rates of the company shareholders.
