T WENTY-SIX corporations with holdings In this county have al- eady paid C. E. Day, tax collector, $1,592,514.07 on their first Installment taxes, or a sum equal to more than one-fourth of the entire .axes charged against the collector !or the county's total first Installment. At this time, with the first nstallment period over, almost 57 ier cent of the taxes for the county's 'Iscal year have been paid, a figure which Mr. Day holds to be a remarkable one, considering tho times. Only mlf of the county's taxes are due on he first installment. On the first Installment collection the Standard Oil Company of Callfor- ila paid far and away the greatest single amount, totaling $624,967.52. The Kern County Land Company paid the next largest amount of Jl53.233.74 and following the land company on the list was the' General 'Petroleum !orporatlon, with a check for $131,653.06. Splendid Record Last year Kern county had the lowest tax'deficiency In the state of California, collectiug 06 per cent of the entire taxes charged against tho office," Mr. Day explained. "We feel elated over that record. "This year," he continued, "there has not been a single protest over taxes being too high and hundreds of persons have come In to pay. "One oil company official, whose company has holdings In some 42 counties of this state, told us th'at his company, for Its property here, paid lower taxes than for similar property In any other county In which It has holdings. "Another Interesting fact," the tax collector said, "la that the Sftundarc OH Company makes out a larger tax check for Kern county than for any other county in the state, having greater holdings here, I assume, thai: in any other county." Prompt Payments Despite the tenor of the times,.Mi- Day said taxes are being'paid with a promptness which he holds remarkable. The entire absence of complaint has also Impressed Itself on tho official. The total amount of taxes charged against tho tax collector's office, most of which will go to'the support of the schools, Is $4,497,033, of which |2,542,607.81 has already v been collected on the flrstj Installment. In this county the great bulk of the taxes, 'estimated at approximately SO per cent, is paid by corporations, mostly oil companies and land holding companies, as well as railroads.
