The Budget Charade Thanks to double-digit Inflat- ion, Washington's tax collectors are laughing all the way to the bank. With your money. Tax collectors had a big month in April. Tax payments gave the government its first monthly budget surplus this year, according to Treasury Department figures - $52.2 bill- ion in tax receipts, or almost $10 billion higher than April a year ago. Tax receipts from last Oct. 1, when the fiscal year commenc- ed, through April teta]ed $253.8 'billion, compared with $212.4 billion for the same period in 1978 - a whopping increase of $41.4 billion or almost 20 percent. According to the Chamber of Commerce of the United States, double-digit inflation already . has helped reduce the size of the federal budget deficits for fis- cal 1979 and 1980 by extracting larger tax payments from work- era' paychecks and from cor- porate profits. Inflation pushes people into lands, whose names unknown to the plaintiff, and who are made parties to the complaint filed in this action by the general des- cription of unknown defendants '. it is ordered that each of them do serve upon David L.

The July meeting will be a picnic at Highland Park. higher tax brackets as they obtain pay increases trying to offset inflation. Thus, a larger percentage of their earnings goes for income taxes. Dr. Jack Carlson, chief econ- omist of the U.S. Chamber, estimates $15 billion in higher federal revenues helped bring: down the 1979 deficit, to billion. In January, 1978, the budget deficit was projected by President Carter at $61 billion. A slower rate of federal spend- ing, some appropriation chan- ges by Congress, and s small- er.than-expected reduction in revenues from the 1978 tax cut voted by Congress accounted for the remainder of the billion redtiction in the estimat- ed deficit. "This is not what taxpayers bad in mind when they adopted tax- cutting proposals like Pro- position 13 and the host of other tax protest measures, "said Dr. Carlson. "They want control of spending, not higher taxes ." Now Congress is counting on at least $5 billion in additional revenues- again largely due to inflation - to hold down the size of the deficit for fiscal 1980, which begins Oct. I. Estimated at $29 billion in January, the deficit for the new fiscal year now will be $23 billion, according to the I budget resolution just adopted by Congress. This resolution sets targets on spending and revenues and the size of the projected deficit. But when a group of House members thought it would be a good idea to let the public in on the sleight of figures by which the deficit is reduced, the House voted dawn the amendment, 112 to56. Rap. John M. Ashbrook ( R-Ohio), who sponsored the am- en.dment, said it would be help- ful if the House Budget Com- mittee would bring in a speciaJ report indicating anticipated in- ' creases in revenues in the en- suing year, with the portion of , such increases attributed to in- fiation, growth in GNP (Gross National Product) etc. "It is , in fact, a truth in government bill," said Rap. Bar- ber B. Conable, Jr. (R-N.Y.) 6, one of its supporters in the floor debate. "This simply requires.. _ the committee on the Budget to . report the tax increases that occur not by action of the. Congress but as a result of, inflation or other reasons, and Jt permits also the inclusion of a -. statement estimating the im- pact of each of the items so specified on individual taxpay" ers according to family size and :, income level...

Strong Defense On Proflts  i American business, in de- lense of profits, has gone on the offensive, most notably through . efforts of the Chamber of Com- ' meres of the United States. In a recent analysis of U.S. corp- orate profits, pungently titled, "The Inadequacy of profits/' Dr. Jack Carlson, the Chamber i 's chief economist, explains that corporate profits declined by almost. 30 percent, comparing .; first quarter 1979 profits with : final quart 1978 profits. Actually, when measured bY the most meaningful yardstick- profits per unit of' output - corporate profits have been de- - I clining for 15 years, Dr. Carl- i  son points out. Nor is there any " sign of a reversal of the trend. Yet, without adequate profits, : we cannot hope to turn the tide.: against either infiaiton or sl-' umping productivity. "Profits from current prod- uction par unit of output ve been so low as to discomage investment in modern machines and building," Dr. Cadson says. "This means our worlters are handicapped by inadequate equipment , machinery and tools, with the result that pro- ductivity has slowed and init ion has worsened." AS part of the new offense on profits, Dr. Carlson has chall- enged the White House-or anyone else for that matter- o prove, if they can, that poftts are causing inflation. As yet,lno takers. fl, 1o W Ol 5 ai 0 ' 24
