REVENUE INCREASE PROPOSALS

FOR FISCAL YEAR 1971

This budget is based on the following local tax measures--

a twenty-cent increase in the real and personal property tax rates from $3.10 to $3.30 per $100 of assessed valuation for the real estate rate and from $2.40 to $2.60 for the personal property rate to yield a combined total of $8.7 million for fiscal 1972; an increase in personal income tax rates and brackets which is now pending before the Congress and which would provide an additional $5.6 million for the current fiscal year and $21.5 million for fiscal 1977; and a l-cent increase in the gasoline tax from 7-cent to 8-cents per gallon to yield $1.5 million.

In addition to these local tax measures, the District's budget again proposes that the Federal payment be set at 30% of the District's general fund revenues. The request for the Federal payment formula authorization is not new, but it is highly important to the District Government's capability to close the gap between needs and resources. The 30% formula would authorize a Federal payment of $119.7 million for the current fiscal year and $132 million for fiscal 1977. In comparison to present authorization, this represents an increase of $9.7 million above the $110 million for fiscal 1970 and $27 million above the present $105 annual authorization for 1971. Enactment of the 30% Federal payment formula would--

provide the District Government with needed revenues on an expanding basis which will help defray built-in expenditure increases in subsequent years and establish a payment commensurate with the increasing burden being placed on the local taxpayer; establish a solid basis for sound financial planning by providing knowledge of our potential--both in terms of income and expenditures-in order to balance the policies of today in the context of tomorrow; recognize the Federal responsibility for the Nation's Capital and the Federal impact on the services of the District Government and on the local economy plus the absence of significant corporate income taxes, lost revenues due to the tax-exempt status of Federal property and the limited geographical tax base of the District as the seat of Government.

This provides surricient funding to provide for required
and staffing - the mandatory costs. This essentially is
what the House provided in its markup.

Additional $21.7 million
in 1971 from increase in
income tax

This provides essentially sufficient funding for the Police,
Firemen and Teachers pay raises.

Additional $8.7 million
from real estate and
personal property tax
increase

This provides the funding for the workload, improved and
new services requests that were contained in the budgets
submitted to the House and rejected by the House as the
House Appropriations Comittee report states:

[blocks in formation]

"The Committee is fulfilling its expressed intention in re-
porting this bill at this time and has had to make severe
reductions to bring the budget into balance. Unfortunately,
it has had almost no flexibility in its actions. A high
proportion of the increases requested are to meet mandatory
and uncontrollable personnel costs and the staffing of new
facilities that will be ready for occupancy during the forth-
coming fiscal year. In most instances only these costs have
been allowed. It has not been possible to provide ior in-
creased workloads and the improvement of services. Requests
for new programs have had to be deferred.
