This Will mean that the two main problems, namely, tit revision and iianor control, tor which we were called into extra session will be solved. A larger number of the other measures which were to have been considered have passed the House and it the majority of the members at the Legislature {eel as t do about it We will be id* Journed by the end ot this week, Inasmuch as this Is the first letter t have written since the tat bill has passed, and since it may be my last opportunity to write about it in these news letters, t believe it would be well tor me to devote the remainder ot this letter in briefly outlining the purpose tor and the provisions ot the new tat bill known as House* File No, 1. This bill is the one known as the three point tax bill which includes a tax on net Incomes of over |600 for a single person and 91100 for a married person; the second feature is a 2 % tax on the net earnings of all corporations; the third point and the one which is expected to raise by far the greater part of the revenue, is a 2% retail sales tax. This third point is the one over which most of the controversy developed. To begin with I want to say that there is only one reason for tax revision and that is to relieve the burden on real estate. During the past few years incomes from property and especially farms have materially decreased while taxes up until the last year or so have steadily increased. The result has been that the tax burden has in some cases become connscatory. In order to relieve this burden there were only two things that could be done. One was to reduce public expenditures which would automatcially reduce taxes and the other waa to raise part of Ate 7 The 45th Genera! 'Assembly which met a year ago was known as the tax reduction session and devoted the major part of its time to tax reduction measures, and as result many tax reduction measures were enacted into laws. So taxes have been reduced as far as possible in keeping with proper Functioning of our governmental institutions, Considering the savings as a result of the tax reduction measures of last session which, however, will not show on your tax receipt until you pay your taxes this year, it waa still felt that property was not sufficiently relieved and as a result this 45th extra session was called for the purpose of tax revision along with several other matters, It is hoped that this new tax measure will raise 120,000,000 and offset our property tax to that extent. The direct property tax reached Its highest In 1930 when it-rose to JHO.000,000, In 1931 this was reduced to 1100,000,000 and In 19Bg to 191,000,000, while the taxes that you will pay this year will be between $75,- OOQ.QOQ and 180.000,000. \ In other words there Is a decrease of at least $30,000,000 beginning with the peak property tax levy In 1930, or a decrease of 87,8% In tbref years, If tbe new tax bill will raise $10,000,* 000 and the expenditures can be kept between $7-6,000,000 and W.OQO.QOO it will mean that the. amount, raised from property -will " " 9?
