WASHINOTON. Jan. .Spec!al Tele
gram.) Congressmsn Bloan today Intro
duced a bill that cannot fail to be popular
with hundreds of small companies which
have felt the strons; bsnd of the Income
tax law. Mr. Hindu's bill authorises the
Treasury department to refund not more
than 40 to corporations which, during
the year 1914, 'had been delinquent and
had compromised with the government
on a baals of IMA. In the beginning small
corporations like the farmers insurance
companies, the farmers telephone com
panies end like associations who were
called upon by the Treasury department
to report their Income taxes, but ha.
failed to do so were mulct by the Treas
ury department on a basis of 150 for
such failure. .
Later on. after a great many of these
email corporations he4 settles the Treas
ury department reduced the minimum to
110 notwithstanding that a large number
of delinquent companies had settled on a
basis of M. Naturally those who settled
on the last- mentioned basis want a part
of their money back. And as It requires
congressional action Representative
Moan baa Introduced a bill remedying a
very apparent defect In the law or In the
department' original ruling.
