Under this bracket, lc is added on sales from 15 to 65c, 12c on sales of 66c to $1.24, and 3c on sales from $1.25 to $1.74. Illinois consumers, under the new bracket, will pay alc added charge on a 65c purchase, instead of 2e as formerly; on a purchase of $1.50 it will be 3c, compared to 5c; and on a $2.17 purchase it will be 4c, as against 7c. Statecl another way, an added charge of 10c will cover purchases up to $5.24,  against $3.49 under the 3% rate. Illinois retailers point out that they have sustained substantial losses during the eight yea the retailers' occupation tax has been in effect, becsmse of their inability to recover, in turn, the full amount of tax paid by them. Suc recoveries, it is reported, ranged from 60 to 96% of the tax Also, various clerical expenses en- tailed in collection, came out of the retailer's pocket. Retailers still maintain that the newly- adopted bracket will not permit them to recover the amount of tax they are required to pay.
