Knappenberger Claims Tax Assessments Higher Than In Other Counties Assessments on Mississippi county farm lands for'tux purposes are too high in proportion to assessments on farm land of comparable quality in oUier counties in the slate, according to H. c. Knap- penbcrgcr, chairman of the Mississippi county lann bureau committee named, to study Iho county's financial troubles. As a result of higher than average assessments' Mississippi county pays more (axes to the state than it should and this Inequity must be corrected In" the opinion of Mr. Kimpucnbergor. ' Every acre of tillable land in his county Is valued at $25 an acre for lax 1 purposes whereas in some counties of the state where tillable land sells at practically the | same price as Mississippi county | land assessments of $0 and $10 1111 acre are common, 11 is claimed.

Taking the average -production of cotton in Mississippi county as 170,000 bales and the average price at $50 per bale, the total is $8,500,COO, for the total cotton income. This makes the county's taxpayers paying'approximately 25 per cent of ils total cotton Income to Ilia slate and county for taxes, the committee has . pointed out. Figures complied show (hat Uifi total assessed valuation of the taxable property In Ihe county Is !n round figures, $15,600,000.
