1 PROCESSING TAX UNDER THE AAA AS IT WILL AKIT.CT
. THE FARMERS OF DUPLIN COCNTy
, ', .There is vHmcik. -beta isievi''tbi iextile manufactures
tit the United States to elimtoate the processing tax . oh cotton.
; which. If eliminated, will mean that the processing tax on all
-other tsommodities- under- the "Agrlciiltural 'Adjustment Act
'will be abolished. ' '. ' '
;; This, means that the expense of the administration, renUl
and benefit payments on an contracts with' farmers will cease,
' unless the funds are secured from some other source, which In
" all" probability can not be done. Manufacturers and dealers in
. farm commodities on which there is a processing tax make the
"claim- thatthe tax has taken away from "theiffl so much of .their.
! proceeds' that they are Unable to operate.' 'f'
The processing tart is levied under the Agricultural Adjust
ment Administration and should be and is passed on' to the ulJ
: tlmate consumer of the farm products manufactured, and is"
- paid by the consumer, the manufacturer and processor acting! .
,only in the capacity of a collecting agency, therefore, It has not
placed any burden whatever on the manufacturer or processor.
, . . i The Increase in cost, to a large extent, of all manufactured
products from farm commodities is caused by the increase in
the cost of labor in handling, transporting, manufacturing, and
the Sale of the manufactured commodities from the farm pro
ducts. Tarrifs, franchises and other means are protection for the.
manufacturer, and have been in existance for many years, and;
. part of which the farmers have paid for the protection f the
manufacturers, and the processing tax on the raw materials of
the farmer in this time of emergency aciupies the same position
as the manufacturer has in the past.
Farmers of North Carolina and Duplin County have ben
efited to the extent that receips for farm commodities in the
State have placed the state In second posilon among all of the
states of the Union, being second only to the state of Texas. '
Duplin County farmers have received in 1834, or since the be
ginning of the adjustment program, with the plow-up of cotton'
and the closing of 'the warehouses- in 1933, more than one-half
million dollars, which nearly equas the price of the entire crop;
produced in 1832. Besides this, the payments received for the 1
crop itself have more than doubled In amount, therefore it Is
the duty of every .farmer in Duplin County to study this ques-'
tion, and -to express himself to his Congressman and Senators
' from this state, and ask for their protection in this matter. '
