Mr. Smallwood was one of three British Columbians to win more than in sweeps._________________ in individual earning as little as S35 a week or a family of four on S75 still will have to pay tax. Thcv are among the official- living beneath an income poverty line calculated hv Statistics Canada. Stalistu Canada estimated in a tlis year that W2.000 Canadian families and another 577.000 individuals living alone total of households in 'ig hclow the poverty ine in 1569. Some would have paid no tax n the past. Others will be re- .icved by increased personal ex- emptions in the new law, and possibly by further concessions i to the blind, invalids, in- to families with one parent or where both parents work. WILL HAV1C TO PAY But under the law emerging from Parliament after pro- tracted scl- dsm on this family as much as S940 a year short of the lire still will have to pay federal and provincial in- come taxes. Tlie legislation awaits the formality of royal as- sent to become law effective Jan. 1. P o v c r t v limits in official calculated as incomes below which an urban Canadian indi- vidual or family would be merely subsisting, requiring at least 70 cents out of every dol- lar for necessities in food, shel- ter and clothing. The latest official lines, for income of or more. That family income, which is about a week, is exactly so per cent cf th? poverty-line income. The head of a family of four wilh standard deductions on an income right at the poverty line of will pay out. about in income tax, the precise amount depending on the prov- ince in which he lives. Because of the increased ex- emntions under the new law, that tax bite is about less than in 1971, but at that salary level it still is significant. By Statistics Canada defini- tions, at least of that fam- ily's weekly income he required for rent, food and portion that indi- cates cramped living, spare food and cheap clothes. Of the remaining in weekly pay, almost would be taken in income tax, just over would go for Canada Pension Plsn and unemployment insur- ance and as much as about Ontario, if the employer paid half--for medical care in- surance. COULD CUT TAX If the employer did pay half of the medical insurance, the family man's tax would in- crease. Under the new rules, that part-payment would he adcVid to the employee's taxable income. So the family man would be left after deduc- tions and bare necessities with about ?1H a week in what econo- mists call discretionary income. He would be better off than tax- able fellows with incomes S'.ii or so a week smaller than his. Some officially-designated poor remain on the tax rolls mainly because the new tax law continues the system of exemp- tions of part of a taxpayer's in- come. During the Commons debate, the increased personal exemp- a year from single and to from for a criti- cized as paltry by sonic MPs on the ground that many poor Ca- nadians would still be paying taxes. DESISTS INCREASE agree, but resisted pushing the exemptions higher on the ground that there would loo great a general loss of revenue. For example, if family ex- emptions were raised to the poverty-line that would not only remove the poor from the tax rolls but sharply reduce tlie tax take from everybody above. The bulk of tax revenue is generated by those on middle incomes. An alternative would tax made for the size of a taxpayer's family, his income range and similar factors. Proponents argue that a tax- credit system would be more flexible than exemptions, per- mitling help for the needy with- out diminishing the total tax take drastically. The government: rejected that path, partly on grounds that it would be unwieldy and unfamil- LONDON ou more than all the med- icine and psychology in the world!
