The Algona Upper Des Moines, Algona, Iowa, Sept. 20,1934 PATTERSON CALLED BY DAILY PAPER Des Moines Paper Says that Sen. Patterson's Statement Unjustified Swea City Bride [Patterson, Himself, Active ib Getting County Relief Levies Raised Des Moines Register Editorial Sept. 8: It was strong language that Senator Patterson, Republican cahdidate :for lieutenant governor, used at Aurelia when he declared that Governor Herring "Is conducting a deliberate •campaign of misrepresentation with regard to tax reduction." And, unless he manages to support the charge by something more persuasive than the assertion that property tax Increases lor relief purposes counterbalance the property tax decreases effected through the sales tax, the language will hardly seemed warrahted. For, as Budget Director Murtagh has pointed out, higher levies for relief were Inevitable, regardless of who •was running the state government. That being so, whatever saving to pro- property owners has been effected by means of the sales tax means just that much less that the property owners will have to put up. Senator Patterson himself, it appears from the record, took a lead in the last cession In getting the permissible maximum county levy for poor relief raised, In anticipation of the jirobably greater emergency need. He •did that quite properly, and is entitled to credit for foreseeing correctly what the heed would be. Surely no discredit then attaches to those who, being In office, ore obliged to notify county authorities that the need will be no less. And while the three and a fourth million dollar replacement of property taxes by sales taxes Is effective this year, Comptroller Murtagh mentions aleo that the increase of around four million dollars In the total state poor relief levy will not be payable until next year whan there will be available ti much greater sum from sales taxes to apply as further replacement against property levies. In any case, the fine distinction between an absolute reductlota of total state property taxes, compared with the last levying, and a saving in property taxes as against what would have •been inescapable but for the sales tax, la not a distinction on which accusations of malignant ratification can TWt. Perhaps before the campaign Is over there will be found plenty of valid points of criticism that can be used •against the Herring administration effectively. But the attack of this partl- •cular matter does not seem to be the one of the number. —Cut by Kayenay The marriage of Miss Madelyn Alyce Eckholm, daughter of Mr. and Mrs, S. P. Eckholm, to M'Uard R.

Of this amount $82,963.09 represents savings effected by elimination of the property tax for state purposes and $115,09950 the sum to be credited to the county when the surplus from the sales tax, personal net Income tax, and corporation lax Is allocated from tire- state treasury August 1, 1935. 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 $2550 for every $100 of property taxes to be paid In Kossuth county next year. Property taxes levl- d for collection in the county in. 1934 amounted to $768,687.85. Since mill levies are lower on farms than on city property, the largest proportionate share of tax saving will go O rural districts. On the average, however, a Kossuth county taxpayer whose tax bill was $100 this year will pay only $74.80 in 1935. This reduction on next year's tax bills is in addition to the $3,000,000 ,o be apportioned throughout the state for poor relief and the elimination of the last half of the 1933 state levy. County po* relief fund, relwrn^ from the sales tax, net Income tax, and corporation tax will replace $22,850,000 In property taxes hi Iowa by next August. Under provisions of the law the board will certify to the county treasurer the amount which Is apportioned for local ;ax replacement on August 1, 1935. Allocation to the county Is based on the proportionate assessed valuation of property. Kossuth county will receive 1.278 per cent of the estimated $9,000,000.

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 meant a cancellation of $8,848,000 In property taxes and marked the first time in the history of the state when no property UK was levied for state purposes.
