II. ASPEU It Is often said, with some but rot total justification, that if one wants lo see where Canada will be in about 10 years in almost any aspect of human endeavor, be need only look to the current decisions being made in Ihe United States. Those decisions have In the past been fairly reliable guide-posts for the Canadian prognos-ticator. This Is not always the case In the tax field, since In many important aspects, Canada is ahead of the United States in what appears to be an unmistakable trend toward more equity, more egalitarianism or more equalization through the tax system. In many ways the 1972 Canadian tax reform plan, now in effect, embodies many provisions the most zealous American reformers still seek. Certainly the well-to-do and wealthy Canadians face far more severe tax treatment that do their American counterparts. Yet, in con-rast, the United States system is far more generous than ours when it comes to the low-and middle-income groups. It means, the man many Americans have branded as a flaming radical when it to tax reform, presidential hopeful Senator George McGovern, merely comes across in Canadi-at ans eyes as early Edgar Benson or a cautious Kenneth Carter when it comes to soak-the-rich lax policy. But apart from the McGovern phenomenon, whether it is passing or permanent, a thoughtful look at what is being said in the United States tax courts is always instructive, because as events have conclusively proved over the past three or four decades, where they are at today in most instances, is where wo will be harbored tomorrow. A recent series of court decisions and directions in that country signal an assault on tried and true and often outdated shiboleths which have long been held sacrosanct In tax circles. In one tax court decision, appropriately entitled Prophit vs. Internal Revenue, the court ruled, contrary to long-standing principles, that the "spirit" of the law supercedes the "letter" of the law. The Prophit went to court, Bible under his arm, and picked up all the tax marbles, in a unique, precedent-setting case. He argued that being a religious guru, the court should recognize Ms flock as dependent children and grant him a tax exemption in respect of each of these notwithstanding that he was not, strictly speaking, their custodian or other parental replacement. He pleaded the teaching of apostole Paul whose second letter to the Corinthians declaimed: "Not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter kill-eth, but the spirit giveth life." The letter of the law said the members of his flock weren't deductible children dependents, but the presumed spirit of the law could be interpreted to include them, in the atmosphere of today's floating flower children. While three tax court judges dissented, the majority court opinion ruled the children as his dependents for tax purposes. Look for interesting things if this liberal and not literal interpretation of tax statutes js widely followed. At almost the same time the U.S. tax court made an equally far-reaching ruling. It wrestled with the perennial problem of determining whether or not profit on the sale of land by company was taxable as regular income at full tax rates or taxable at half rates as a capital gain. The circumstances were Identical to thousands of cases which occur annually In both this country and the United States. The company had only one activity to buy land, hold it for awhile and then sell it for a profit. Notwithstanding this admitted intent, the court ruled that the land was an Investment and its sale and the prolft it created was a tax-sheltered capital gain. Canadian land speculators, take note! For those wondering how th3 Canadian courts will interpret our new capital gains laws, a glance at another recent U.S. tax court decision will be interesting. Columbia Broadcasting Systems leased a theatre in New York. The lease had a clause requiring the tenant to restore the premises to its original condition when the lease expired. CBS wanted out of that provision and paid the landlord to cancel the clause. The tax question was whether the landlord received the for the giving up of a right capital gam or as income from a lease fully taxa-bll. The court ruled the payment fully taxable on the ground that It was a form The decision gives u Insight Into how Canadian tai courts might interpret our new capital gains tax the firs) Canadian case will not likely come before the courts (or tl least a year. In the "of thing! to come" category falls another ominous American ruling, announced this month. From July 1 onward, all persons transport, ing more than In currency out of the U.S. must notify the customs department. As well, all financial Institutions are required to report to the treasury department all "unusual" currency transactions involving more than So if one feels trapped in Canada, he is well off by American standards where everyone is required to indicate on his tax return if he maintains i foreign bank account. All of this is part of the none-shall-escape syndrome which has gripped the United States since its currency crisis last year. It is to be devoutly hoped that Canada will not follow the same course but will, instead, vigorously seek to establish a system from which none would want to escape. That's the real thing in a capital-competlUva world.
