"Many taxpayers will be surprised to learn that seven dollars ($7.00) out of every ten dollars ($10.00) 'collected by the state in special taxes is returned to local communities," said George B. Gill, chairman of the State Tax commission, in releasing the reports. This money conies back in the form of old age assistance, road building, aid to schools, homestead credit, aid to dependent children, aid to the blind and assistance to cities and towns. None of the tax paid on property comes to the state government. The table for each county shows, in addition to the amounts of revenue contributed by the county through income tax, sales tax, use tax, insurance premium tax, cigarette tax, gasoline tax, motor vehicle license tax, beer tax, liquor store profits and other miscellaneous forms of revenue, the amounts returned to local communities in the form of state aids and primary road expenditures. Upon publication of the booklet "Your Tax Dollars" so many requests for detailed information have been received that the Tax commission, through its Director of Research, Louis Cook, has broken down tax collections and state aids county by county. The tabulations included taxes collected for the year ending June 30, 1947 and allocations of special funds paid or made available for the calendar year 1947. Here is the record for Mills county: Allocations or expenditures for county, farm to market roads and primary roads totaled $030,000. Homestead credits paid nids from various nturned to M'" 8 rminty'l'iMaled f7.10,540, not in- rlurtinc an estimated $153.194 of federal aid fund* wnM would rot have been available without niatrhlnK by "^ ? t nte from spe " (ial tax receipts. ••The total estimated collections of special tax funds from the county is estimated at $566,- 9S4 " said Mr. Gill in further clarifying the tax situation in the C a A o C l» i) SILV The O.
