Mr. McCANN:

Information of the nature requested can only be provided for 1941 and subsequent years and is only complete for the years 1941 and 1942. As the figures are derived from statistics relating to taxpayers there is an unavoidable understatement in the lowest income classes due to the exemption levels applying to married taxpayers which were $1,500 in 1941 and Sl,200 in 1942. Married persons with incomes below these levels would not be included. Subject to this important reservation, the requested figures are contained in the following estimated table:
