I RETURN FROM UNIVERSITY j been taking a course in houEehold econ- Why the collection of INCOME TAXES from co-operatives, crown companies, govern- ment and municipally owned enterprises would put MONEY IN YOUR POCKET If all businesses in this country paid Income Tax on an equal basis, it would mean a good many extra dollars in the pocket of every Canadian. The sharing of the Income Tax burden by co-operatives and businesses operated by governments and municipalities, would either bring about a big cut in the personal Income Taxes which you pay or a reduction in the price of goods and services you buy from these Income Tax exempt concerns. You would profit either way If Income Tax were levied on the profits of co-oper- atives, crown companies and corporations operated by governments and municipalities, these Income Tax free organizations could follow either one of two courses: 1. They could reduce the price of their goods and services to the point where they would have no profits. They would therefore have no profits on which to pay Income Tax. The public would benefit by paying less for the goods and services which it bought. 2. They could decide to maintain their prices and to pay In'come Tax on their profits, if Income Tax were thus collected on the profits of all such tax- exempt organizations, the total would amount to as much as 125 millions of dollars The government could then, without decreasing its revenues, reduce the Income Tax by an average of S 5 0.00 annually on every Canadian Income Tax payer. It is thus quite apparent that the collection of Income Taxes from co-operatives, and corporations owned by governments and municipalities, would mean extra, dollars in the pockets of Canadians, no matter what course such presently tax-free organizations might take. Revision of The Income War Tax Act, insofar as it concerns co-operatives, come before the current session of Parliament. It is of the utmost importance that such revisions shall bring tax equality to all groups. We urge that the income tax payers of Canada insist that their elected representatives in the House of Commons see that the heavy burden of Income Tax is shared by co-operatives and other presently tax- exempt businesses. The Income Tax Payers Association has no objection to the principles of co-operative trading. It should be the right of every Canadian to trade as he desires. Our objective is io ensure that no tection of business unloads its share of income taxation and cost of the war on other businesses or on individual income tax 'Report of Professor J.
