$225 ITJ TAXES
There is no necessary relation between
taxes and employes although, obvious
ly, money spent for taxes cannot be
spent for payrolls. But the ratio of
$225.00 in taxes to every person on our
payroll is another measure of the magni
tude of the tax burden which the tele
phone industry must bear.
TAXES ARE 21 OF PAYROLL!
Payroll is the largest single item of
expense, but taxation is growing rapidly.
We do not object to reasonable taxes
but it is obvious that an increase of
more than $82,000 in this Company's
taxes during the past ten years is taking
money which cannot be used for payrolls!
