Credited to Last Half of 1935 Taxes If ' Unpaid REFUND TOTALS 1$4 A THOUSAND The Board of Assessment and Review has advised County Treasurer M. J. Duffy that the amount to be distributed to the taxpayers of Kossuth County, proceeds from the property relief act, for the year 1936 is $147,617.08. This Is Kossuth County's allocation of the proceeds from the sales tax, personal net Income tax, and business tax on corporations. County Treasurer Duffy has credited the refund on the last half of the 1938 taxes payable in 1936 and any one wishing to pay the last half of the tax with refund taken off may do so at the treasurer's office. If the taxpayer paid all his taxes last spring, a refund check will be mailed 16 him. The deduction will be made on both real and personal property, but not on moneys and credits nor special assessments. The rate of refund for this year Is four mills, or for ' example a property with a taxable value of $6,000.00 will receive a refund of $4.00 per thousand, or a $20.00 refund. The refund will undoubtedly again bring to the fore the question that seems to be perpetual as to whether or not the refund is really a refund and whether or not the state's tax setup is favorable to property owners, as declared by the APPLE LODGED IN THROAT IS FATAL TO BOY suth, Died at Iowa City Armstrong: A small piece of apple, lodging in the lung of 20 month-old Donald Phillip Opsahl, son of Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Opsahl of northwest Kossuth, caused the baby's death, last Thursday, in a sad and unusual accident.
