Henry Herbert Stevens

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. STEVENS:

Frankly I believe that the sales tax method should be reviewed and studied. I am not authorized by my leader or my colleagues to say what I am about to say; I am just throwing it out as a hint or suggestion of my own. For many years I have studied the sales tax with great care, and from time to time I have sought to find in my own mind and to my own satisfaction some substitute for it, because it is a very valuable tax.
I think at the present time it is producing about $120,000,000 or $130,000,000 a year.
