James Earl Lawson

Conservative (1867-1942)

Mr. LAWSON:

I quite agree that under our present act that $100,000 could be paid out to a non-resident in salary and deducted as an expense of operation before the tax was received by the government, but I do not think that that is what happens in practice. In fact the non-resident-owned investment corporation pays the tax before paying out any money in the form of salaries.
