A^o Need jor Sales Tax Tim Arkiitisiis Coi'poi'ntion loimui.s- sion, in its : biennial report, .says; "it" the iirapoiiy in Arkansas WHS uniformly and ci|Uilably assessed at its triw or market viilttc there would bo ample tax money for the school* and Hie Kovurmmml we do not licliovu it wnultl Im nui-cssary to apply ' it sales lax unless sucli a IH.X could bu collected in liuu of properly taxes." The proposed lliri;e per cent .sales tax for the benefit of the schools would he a lax increase for Die m?iii who is paying property, taxes on a fair assessment us well as for the man who is not. Take (hu ciu-e of the owner of a Jiomc in the, cily of Blythevillo assessed at $1,000. His property tax, at present, is about §'15. Substitution of a tlii'cc per cent wales tax for the three- mill slate school tax, as proposed s by the school groups, would lop ?;! from his giiiiurul properly tax bill, lie would pay $.12 instead of $.15. Uul if | tu spends 81,000 per year on food, clothing ami oilier articles for himself and III'H family, and that i s a conservative figure for the owner of a home assessed ,at ?1,000, he would pay $30 a year in sales tax. Net tax increase: i?27 per year. The Corporation commission urges itss-'cssiinenl of Arkansas property at 100 per cent of its fair cash value instead of the SO per cent now proscribed by law, \yiih a proportionate'reduc- tion in the inillage tax rate. 1 'l'liurc.-is nothing to that. It doesn't'make any difference at what proportion of its fair value property ix assessed so long as it is all assessed al the same proportion. What Arkansas needs, before adopting a sales lax or other now taxation, is uniform assessment of all properly and more elfeclivc collection of taxes. Gelling a Little Too Hoi There is a disquieting report from 'Washington ( 0 the cgect that (he Senate munitions invc.stigators may be compelled to pull in their horns, on,the ground that they are on the verge of •bcspallering certain gentleman who are loo highly placed for llio comfort of. high, .administration officials. One hopes thai Hi is report is not true. But if llio second part of it be true—if the senators are actually on a trail that leads to high places—that is all, the more reason why the investigation should continue. This munitions investigation is of very great importance; potentially, it is of vrtst benefit to tlio whole country. If the cards arc about to fall in such a manner as to embarrass someone close- to the inner chamber—we'll, thai is just too bad, but the people are en- tilled to know about it. To try lo liiioh things up \vbiikl be to make a very great mistake. A Homestead Tax to Offset Homestead Exemption Governor Shollz estimates ti m t, Florida's $5,000 homcslcnd exemption nincnclmcnl will reduce lax revenues of tlie slate, counties, eiUcs mid districts by $10,000,000 a year or filiout, 30 per cwit of lite loinl now collected. To replace revenues that, w m t! ius bo lost tlic Hovitlti U-atjue o( Municliwlllics Is asking for a state tales inx, without, exemption. Uul H retail sales tn.\ Is u homestead lax. The Inilk of nil retail buying Is for home and family tnnposc.s. In Uic oni: cnsc you tiix n family eroup for having » roof over their heads. In llio oilier you MX tlicjn foe liui-iiiff food In their slonmclis, ulolhliij; on Ihclr bucks, lunil- luro nncl furnishings In Ihc rooms where lliey live. W. A. .Stevenson of PunigouUl.complains In'u letter to Die Oar.etlc that the properly lax— the. lux on n _ family's roottrec—keeps "many iwor etiully owners In mortal fear of losing Ihclr homes" because of Inability to nay (lie luxes. Hut, if we replaced Hie properly lax with ii sales tux, those same equity owners would have to find Ihe money lo pay the .sales lax if they bought miytlilug for Ihclr families. And if (he home owner would put. aside every night the ccniivalcnl of Uic sales laxes on thai day's pur- cliiislngi lie would find ul| Jlic end of a year Unit he had saved enough to pay the luxes on lib; homestead. Ik; would probably find in mast rases umi he had saved a (jrcat, deal more than his liomcslcnd tax bill "came to. There is always u demand here In Arkansas for homcslonrt exemption, which some oilier .Mates have adoplcd. We have no great, body of hKluslry or wealth In (his state lo fall back on for revenue. If we exempted homesteads we should have, to make up the lost, revenue from some other source. And ir we' chose a sales lax as tlial soiircc, we should merely be getting riil of one liomcslcrid lax by Imposing nnollier and iicrliaps heavier one—Arkansas Gazelle. I'm u country doctor.
