leaders from now un til the proposed special session of the Legislature next fall What the special session does about a new tax program and reenacting of capital improvements measures probably will de pend in large part on the behavior of the tax structure through the rest of this fiscal year Gov Herschel Loveless vetoed the catchall tax bill passed by the Legislature in April because it proposed to retain the 2Vi per cent sales tax rate He said it would bring in more money than needed to meet the 151 million dollars in annual appropria tions adopted by the Legislature if the more than 16 million dollars in capital improvements such as new buildings at state insti tutions and improvement at state lakes and parks was dropped How does Iowas financial picture look In his veto message the Governor estimated that with the sales tax at 2 per cent the corporation income tax rate at 2 per cent and the individual income tax rate at 75 per cent of the full rate the levelsthat will apply after July 1 the state can pay for all government operations and have a general fund bal ance June 30 1959 of 21 to 22 million dollars This was based on the Legislatures noncapital appropria tions of million dollars a year and estimated income of 134 millions The deficit would be made up from the 39 million dollar general fund balance The Governor suggested that if the special session feels some capital improvements arc necessary it can reenact them and provide a means of financing them He said that if he Legislature would transfer to the general fund the approximately 7 million dollars a year in sales tax re ceipts now allocated to the road use tax fund necessary capital improvements could be taken care of without any new taxes This plan was almost certain however to meet with heavy oppo sition from roadminded legislators Are tax receipts this year holding up well And are there any signs of the slackening of business and resultant tax loss some lawmakers say they fear You can find support in State Tax Commission figures for both optimistic and pessimistic views Tax Commissioner Leon Miller said sales tax and individual and corporation income tax receipts so far this year are ahead of a similar period in 1956 by about IVi million dollars He said sales tax receipts for the first quarter of the year totaled a new record for the in the second quarter from April 1 up to May 22 for a total of Individual income tax receipts through April 30 amount ed to and corporation income tax to The total for this year is compared with 332 collected from these sources in a like period of 1956 Miller also said tax collections from July 1 1956 to May 17 this year totaled a gain of over receipts in a comparable period of the previous fiscal year Support from the pessimistic view comes from an analysis of sales tax figures Despite the record receipts for the first quarter of 1957 re ceipts in one quarter are produced by business in the preceding quarter so the figures reflect business in the Christmas quar ter of last sales tax income from April l to May 22 lagged behind that period of 1956 The more cautious legislators say they fear the second quar ter sales tax shrinkage indicates a frend that may become mores pronounced in the rest ofjhis year and possibly extend into 195S ;
