Kossuth county property taxes to te levied in 1934 for collection in 1935 will be reduced by $198,062.29 through revenue derived from Iowa's new three point tax law, the state board of assessment and review has estimated in figures released by Ray Murphy, chairman. Of this amount $82,963.09 represents savings effected by elimination of the property tax for state 1'hig story was released for publication last week by the state board of assessment and review. Headers need to be on tfuard against the impression that the tax savings given herein arc net . The sales tax is as much a tax as any other tax and there is no showing in this story that Kossuth county has not in fact paid more in sales taxes than it will realize In property tax reduction. purposes and $115,099.20, the sum to be credited to the county when the surplus from the sales tax, per- Sonal net income tax, and corporation tax is allocated from the state treasury August 1, 1935. Reduction Is $25.20. Tax levies for 1934 have not yet been completed, but on the basis of 1933 figures the board has estimated that the three point tax law •will mean a saving of $25.20 for every $100 of property taxes to be jmid in Kossuth county next year Property taxes levied for co'llec- tion in the county in 1934 amounted to $766,587.85. Since mill levies are lower on farms than on city property, the largest proportionate share of tax saving will go to rural districts. On the average, however, a Kossuth county taxpayer whose tax bill was ?100 this year will pay only $74.80 in 1935. 1'oor Relief IVot Counted. i This reduction on next year's tax ; bills is in addition to the "$3,000.000 ' to be apportioned throughout the ; etate for poor relief and the elim- ! ination of the last half of the 1933! elate levy. Counting the poor relief fund, returns from the sales lax, net income tax, and corpora- ' tioii tax will replace $22,650,000 in j jpj-optrty taxt.-s in Iowa by next Atur.UBt. from the retail ntJng steadily, mem and review yearly revenue will be more than $19,000,000. Present indications are that the sales tax will yield $14,000,000 annually. Returns from the personal net income tax and the corporation tax are expected to total $5,000,000. $9,000,000 for Local Relief. After $6,460,000 is taken from the fund to replace the state property levy and $3,000,000 for poor relief more than $9,000,000 will be available for additional reduction of county, city, and school district property taxes in the state. Under provisions of the law the board will certify to the county treasurer the amount which is apportioned for local tax replacement on August 1, 1935. Allocation to the county is based on the proportionate assessed valuation of property. Kossuth county will receive !So,oo r o. Cent ° f the estimated County Treasurer Distributes. The county treasurer will then distribute the sum by reducing each taxpayer's second installment bill, due next September, according to the proportion his property's valuation bears to the total assessed valuation of property in the county. Machinery for the replacement of property taxes as provided in the three point tax law was set in motion when the board of assessment and review eliminated the 1934 state property levy. This means a cancellation of $6,460,000 in property taxes and marked the first time in the history of the *u.K:.v tax a it -tut board or fes- New Fall MILLINERY C'hoose from a whole panorama of new styles.

With receipts from the sales tax continuing at a rapid pace, the board decided to refund to taxpayers $3.230,000 of the tax bills to be collected this September, or the last half state levy for 1933. By far the largest reduction will come, however, when Kossuth county taxpayers pay their 1934 taxes in 1935, with $198,062.29 slashed from the total, Pastor Undergoes Operation.

Webb, treasury construction engineer, about sidewalks, curbs, etc. It was agreed that a new 6-ft. sidewalk would be laid along the north side of the site and a 8-ft. walk along the east side. On both sides the paving will be widened. On the north the new paving will start from the present edge and run south ten feet. This will leave a space for lawn parking between paving and sidewalk on that side. On the east the paving will be widened up to the edge of the new sidewalk, and there will be no lawn parking.
