BURNS INSURANCE AGENCY FARMERS BANK & TRUST CO, INSURANCE DEPT. FIRST NATIONAL INSURANCE AGENCY SPECIAL TAXES: You SHARE IN THIS BILL Buyers of fire insurance indirectly but actually contribute a vast sum—approximately $30,000,000 annually—through taxes, most of which are of a special nature, additional to the regular taxes bofnt by-insurance companies in common with other lines of industry. The original purpose of special taxes upon insurance was lo maintain state supervision, but such supervision uses but four cenls of each dollar. The. balance goes inlo the general funds of the states. These special taxes and the taxes upon property which insurance companies pay in common wilh all other owners of property are factors in the cost of fire insurance. Th« Chamber of Commerce of the United Stoles says: "... Special State Taxes now levied on Policyfiolders through insurance cosi- panies should not be considered as a source of general revenue, but should be reduced to the total in each state which will adequately support such state's departmental supervision . . .
