MOSTNO.-IOWA COUNTIES GET RAISE IN'37 While 16 Southern Iowa Counties Get Valua tlons Lowered Property tax valuation changes this year altered totals by more than $1,000,000 In ecah of 29 counties in Iowa, state board of assessment and review records showed this week. Thirteen of the county totals were revised upward, and 16 were lowered. Kossuth county's 1937 valuation minus monies was raised from $37,363,553 in 1938 to $40,040,682 in 1937. Thus, Kossuth county's wealth is considered in Des Moines, to have increased about $1,600,000 during the past year. Boost North Iowa Values Values generally ros e in north Iowa counties, and declined in many south Iowa counties. Valuation revisions dfrectly affect the proportion of the state levy a county will pay. Thus, a county whose valuation rise was say one million dollars, will contribute $2350 more In the state levy than It would under the old total, assum- ing the valuation for the state as a whole remained the same. On the other hand, such an area conceivably mlght x benefit by Increased homestead tax benefits if the Increase included a rise in the value of eligible homesteads.
