Tax Refund This Month Exceeds Co.'s State Levy Kossuth county taxpayers are receiving this month a refund of 1147,617.08, which is this county's shaVe for 1938 In the proceeds of the state 3-point tax law. The refund which amounts to 4 mills on each dollar of assessed valuation, will be allocated on the basis of assessed property valuations. The refund is considerably In excess of the $114,890.43 raided In Kossuth county by the 3.1 mills state levy authorised by the state legislature. In 1934 and 19S3 the refunds to Kossuth county amounted to $92,460.61, plus $6,025.67 provided by the state for relief purposes from the sales, income and corporation tax revenues. It is interesting to note that the property tax for county purposes in Kossuth county dropped from $409,699.00 In 1931 to $261,076.00 in 1934, and then rose to $203,917.00 in 1936. This amounts to a decrease from $1.11 to 55c on every $100 of assessed valuation, between 1931 and 1936. In terms of taxes on farm lands it represents a decline from 52c per acre In 1931 to 37c per acre in 1936. County taxes, it should be remembered, are accounted for en- Irely by conditions in Kossuth ounty, and are fixed by the coun- y board of supervisors. The figures used In this summary were complied under the direction f Prof. R. C. Bentley of the Iowa agricultural experiment station at Ames.
