THURSDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1968 SECTION A PAGE THREE Apartment Tax Seen Increasing Holsclaw Promises Equalization Attempt Tucson apartment owners were told last night that their 18 property tax bills will be 39 per cent higher, on an average, than those levied against home owners but they received assurances of equalization in the next legislature. Douglas L. Holsclaw, unopposed Republican candidate for re-election to the Senate, spoke before more than 500 persons at a meeting called by the Arizona Apartment Assn. in Doolen Junior High Auditorium. He said he would support an a s s o c i a t i o n-backed bill to amend the new property tax legislation to reduce the assessment rate for apartment owners from 25 to 18 per cent at which home owners are assessed. He sheared the platform with three other Republicans Scott Alexander, incumbent candidate for the Arizona House of Representatives; Sen. Ken Cardella, candidate for re-election, Sen. Krnest Garfield, candidate for re-election, and one lone Demo- j i rat , William Risner, candidate! lor the House. Holsclaw admitted the last legislature lacked the foresight Ui distinguish between transient ;md permanent rentals. Arizona has 400.000 mt-manent renters earning, on an average. 4.1 per cent less than home buyers. It would not be economically sound, he added, to put an additional burden on them. "The more they pay in rent, . the less they'll have left for oth- it purchases and savings," he said. "And the more they can : purchase, the more sales taxes they'll pay." He pointed out that the pur-' pose of tax reevalu3tion and reassessment was to shift the tax burden from property owners to the public at large through increased sales, cigarettes and income taxes. He expressed confidence 'he legislature will pass "this equitable and justifiable bill." Noting that Holsclaw voted for the tax reform bill. Alexan der said he, Holsclaw, has just eaten about 1.000 pounds of crow." Asked "what idiot" said taxpayers had to pay a full year's tax before they could file suit for reduction. Cardella said, it's the law and no one anticipated ii would take so long to get out lax bills in Pima County, leaving no time to get court action before Nov 1 He warned Hie apartment owners to expect and look for clerical errors i n their bills, saying Ins own bill was in error. Such bills, he said, needn't be paid until corrected. A show of hands indicated all but three persons in the audience had received higher tax ! valuations and higher tax bills. Cardella said a sampling of 9.0(10 homes in Maricopa County showed 7.000 had received lower tax bills.
