He was also instructed to include the amount in his income. He refused, arguing that was merely a reimbursement of expenses of travelling he had necessarily incurred in carrying out the duties by which he earned his taxabla income. In other words, he reasoned that U the car allowance were taxable, surely the travelling expense, which excwded that amount, would be deductible. At the Appeal Board, be, like the doctor, argued his own case but Board member J. 0. Weldon, Q.C. had no alternative but to apply the law M it presently stands. He pointed out that tax law provdes that where an employer arranges and pays for transportation for employees from their home to the job site, the benefit (free transportation) to the employee is generally not taxable. But, on the other hand, where the employer doesn't provide the transportation and compensates employee for furnishing his own, that compensation become taxable as a benefit to the employee arising from his job. Mr. Weldon ruled in this that the travelling costs were a personal expense rather than a business expense, because the individual was a salaried rather than a self-employed person. Thus the car allowance was taxable as ordinary income. While the logic of laws which treat similar situations so differently may escape many observers, nevertheless the fault, if any, lies in the law, not in its administration. The present tax reform program attempts to resolve this tax discriminaiton between the employed and self-employed by allowing employed persons to claim a general deduction (or all costs of earning their living, as the self-employed may do. However the proposed deduction isn't sufficiently generous to be of much help since it is limited to the lesser of three per cent of one's income or per year. The Carter Commission had proposed a maximum of per year and it would seem that the latter figure is closer to reality and should be adopted If the system is to be made more fair.
