BROADEN TAX BASE WITH
MORE PRIVATE OWNERSHIP
To the Omaha Evening World-Herald:
There arc three good ways lo broaden
the lax base.
First, sell the billion dollars uf no-tax-
paying properly owned in common i'1
Nebraska lo private ownership where it
will pay taxes.
Second, leave private ownership •'
larger share' uf yearly earnings so it will
invesl more in private production and
pay teixcs on more private property.
Third, slop levying lhe high taxes
that nine enable governmenl lo go into
every conceivable kind of business thai
should be left to private industry. Such
governmenl operated businesses now extend from repair shops lo roasting
