The Algona Upper Pes Moinea, Algona, Iowa, Feb. 25,1937 N. Iowa Merchants Rebel At In justice of State Sale* Tax (Continued from Front Page) and unfair tax,*' another spokesman added. Hiftlory of The Tax It was explained that the sales fM was originally put into effect on the plea that it was "an emergency measure" to raise revenue, much Of which was needed for relief. "All the relief it has given, is to those getting part of $500,00X1 handling expense," he said. "Then it was supposed to be a replacement tax on real estate property. Any property-owner knows how much "replacement" it amounted to." One business man, from Worth county, stated that he had already stopped collecting the tax. He did not explain how he was getting around payment to the state board of assessment and review. Demand for Action One thing was certain. The men from Kossuth, Palo Alto, Emmett, Hancock, Winnebago, Clay, Worth and Cerro Gordo counties represented a good Cross-section of Iowa business, politics and .activity—and they were all united on one thing —they've had enough of the sales tax and are prepared to fight It out with the state administration if necessary. The resolutions were being prepared to be sent to state representatives, state senators, state officials and all others who are in any way connected with the state government, and who can exert their influence, one way or the other, to kill permanently a sales tax which everyone had hoped and expected would die out on April 1, 1937. ALGONA DELEGATION JOINS IN PROTEST An Algona delegation, headed by Milton Norton, president of The Algona Chamber of Commerce, and including P. J. Christensen. Ralph Miller and R. B. Waller attended Jie meeting, and the Algona group heartily endorsed the resolutions.
