Sllii-Will Mr. Iloir kindly explain
in The Weekly Tribune I he operation
of the income tax ?
Hew do its advocates4 claim tbat it
can bo levied so an to bo even approx
imately just in tho distributioa of
burdens ? u hat is understoed by
the tfyord "income" in this connection?
Salatjsi, rents of real eitalo, intcrtst
.on4fooy loaned will all theso bo
taxable as income? How is u mer
chant's or a manufacturer's income
I am entirely at sea in regard to
this question, but so I find art a great
in any who try to aruo pro and eon.
If Mr. dorr will favor the readers of
Tho Tribune with one of his lue'd
explanations, I believo that a qood
number of people will understand tho
siibjtct better than they do now,
M. C. Fiutsoiie.
Osierdook, Iowa, Jan. 2G, 1801.
In reply to this important letter, I
in compelled to giro simply my own
understanding of such a law. I do
not Mipposo that the term income has
a technical mcaninc. An income tax
has been levied for many )cars in
Great Britain, and was enacted in this
country during tho war of 18C1-'C3,
and enforced until 1871, when at the
olosc of tho year tho tax expired under
the provisions of the original bill.
As I understand it, under this law
a tax would bo levied on the amount
received by caoh individual, including
(1) salaries, (2) rents on real estate
over and above repairs, inHuraucc and
.taxes; (.'() all interest and dividends
received on bonds, stocks or moneys
loaned; (4) tho net profit received in
mercantile business, manufacturing,
the buying and selling of bonds and
grain; aad (5) tho profits of every
other kind of commercial tranxaetiotiH.
Tliu object of an incomes tax is to
compel every person in tho United
States to pay 2 per cent of all the
tuouoy ho makes in each year over and
above $1,000, which letter sum is ex
empted fromtaxation in all cases. If
the tux is to bo honestly paid, tho re
sult of each jsar's business will bo
carefully kept by nself, nud tho
amount each poison has actually mado
during that year, when tho amount
exceeds tho sum of $(,000, will be
subject to u tax without any regard to
tho kind of biisincrs in which the
Biouev has been made. Tho Icshcs of
ono Near would not be allowed for do-

Ouo of tho gravest objections to an

income tix is the fact that it compels
caoh individual to make a showing of
his ontiro receipts, a thing against
which every business man naturally
revolts. No suoh tax can possibly bo
levied with any drgrco of success
without proceedings which arc inquis
itorial and meddling to a degroo which
ih absolutely olTonsivo to all busincBS
The qucBtioti of Mr. Fritsoho as to
how such a tax can bo levied justly,
so us to equalize burdens, is difficult
to answer. In the first place, the ex
emption of $1,000 is of necessity in
equitable. The intention of such an
exemption is that $1,000 is enough to
pay the expenses of living, because
under this bill a man is not allowed to
make out his own personal expanses
or the exponscs of his family ia order
to rcdueo his income. An exemption
of 1,000 is, in many of the cities of
tho United States, moro thau twico ni
much on such an exemption would bo
in thi. city of New York. A man cm
live in tho greater portion of the
United States inuoh better on $4,000
a year thin ho can in tho eity of Now
York on $10,000. To begin with, a
houBe which would rent in a modcrato
sized tows lor ;Ul or uuu a yoar
costs from $l,u00 to 2,000 in tho city
of New York.
In making so large an exemption as
$1,000 the Wilson bill makes t de
parture from the inoomo taxes former
ly levied in England and iu tho United
In England an income tax is levied
on all sums oyer and abovo $500. Be
tween $500 and $750 they collect a
lower percentage than on greater in
comes. Tho incomo tax levied in 18G3 in
the United States at first exempted
only $000. It levied 5 per cent on
all sums abovo that amount up to
5,000, 7 percent on incomes betwcee
$5,000 and $10,000, and 10 per cent
on sums abovo $10,000. Tho cxetup
tion was afterward ra'sed to $1,000,
later on to $2,000. The largest
amount collected was in 18(10 and
amounted to 01,000,000. It was paid
by about a half a million individuals.
When the exemption was itiorcased to
$2,000, tho tax colloctod fell oS more
than ene-half. Only about 20,000,000
was collected iu 1870, although the
ralo was a very hie;h ono.
I havo before me a receipt given by
a United Statoi deputy collector to a
noi chant in New Yoik City for the
tax on tho lattcr's incomo in tho year
1800. I omit tho geutlenian's name
by request. It reads:
"Incomo not exceeding $5,000.
Amount $4,500, at 5 per cent, $220.
''Incomo exceeding $5,000, $5,
842 55, at 10 per cent, $581.24.
"Tux withheld $10 09.
"Tax on carriagu $2.
Tax on piano $2.
"Tax on gold watch $2.
"Amount of tax il'J'J.b'i.
"Received paymont, Samuel S.
A) mar, Deputy Collector."
The man who returned that tax was
a merchant in partnership with two
other gentkmou. Both of tho other
men paid no tax nt u'l. They hud re
ceived the same amount from tho same
business but claimed to havo lost it
all in some e peculation in Wall street
or otherwise, so that thoy escaped tho
In theory an incomo tux seems just
und fair. Iu practice it is imposfiblo
to carry out tho law with even an ap
proach of fairnes. The levy of a
tux of that kind is always evaded by
the great bulk of the people, It Is,
indeed, difficult for cvtu an honest
man to tell how much h ouylit to ro-
