Home Owners In County Increase Home ownership has taken a sharp upswing in Kossuth county sirtce 1944 and there has been a general increase since 1937 in the number of people claiming homestead exemptions, according to records at the Kossuth county treasurer's office. The law went into effect in 1937 and in that year, $108,218.52 in property qualified for exemptions. In 1948, that figure was $154,243.58 and is an indication of the increased number of home owners. However, with added levies and other changes, no correlation as to the number of homes can be made. Owing to a possible equalizing valuation by the state tax commission, the 1949 figure is not yet available, but it is assumed that it, too, will show an increase. Figures showing the general upward trend follow: 1937 $108.218.52 1938 107,459.52 1939 106,332.02 1940 116,037.45 1941 116,879.77 1942 124,167.93 1943 118,076.96 1944 121,691.33 1945 121,305.34 1946 138,686.52 1947 147,313.10 1948 154,243.58 The experience over Iowa has been similar to that of Kossuth with a steadily increasing ration according to figures released by the state tax commission. Bond Sales Over 4 Million Here Total sale of U. S. savings bonds in Kossuth county during 1949 were well over the four million total. Figures just released showed that Kossuth purchasers bought $2,443,888 worth of series E, F, & G bonds and $1,729,674 worth of E bonds during the year. There were redemptions of slightly over one million dollars in bonds during the year, also. BOOKKEEPING S U P PLIES, at the Algona Upper DPS Moines office.
