VJ &;,: fvr * at Ihs 8 hi ale vewt Watch for the HOPE STAR'S CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EDITION Tuesday, Dec. 9th As fur as the county assessors personally arc concerned I ought Ifto tell Ihcm that Mr. Gaskins' chant about "forgotlen mcn" is one that the Joint Tax Revision Committee endorsed. The committee felt that one of the most glaring errors in the present courthouse setup all over Arkansas is that the office which should have the best pay and the largest slaff, Ihe assessor's office, is actually the county's poor relation. It won't work. It hasn't worked. Now we've to figure out something that will work — and the Joint Tax R-vision Committee said so. And Arkansas doesn't have much time to do it in, either. The fact is that the myth about state-wide taxes and state aid carrying the public school burden without effective assessing and taxing at the local districl level has exploded. All those stale-wide special taxes Arkansas is so fond of haven't devoted to stale-wide purposes. Not at all. Instead, they have been systematically robbed, raided, and diverted. We enacted the 2 per cent sales tax in 1935, a measure I helped promote when low property values and a bankrupt school system left us no altcrnalive. Bul the sales tax, instead of being treated -s merely a supplement to local property taxos, came to be viewed as a substilute for them. This failure to assess and tax adequately at the district level broke the back of the state-aid program. For the city school districls of Arkansas, holding the lion's share of property and wealth, dug into the stale funds on the assumption that they personally were entitled to much of that money because it had been •collected within their corporate limits. ^. kittle Rock was, before the tax IrCollapse a couple of years ago, gelling $650,000 a year in slate aid for its school district. I looked into this matter personally, entirely aside from our work on the Joint Tax Revision Committee. Here's what I found out about the Little ; Bock school district;! For the 1952-53 school yeai- its assessors inslcad of electing them. Cherry wouldn't say today whether he believes Ihey should be elecled or appoinled. Gentry said it would be unthinkable lo slarl out the tax revision program by "educating the tax assessors." He added that educating them isn't necessary because they are well awar^ of what needs to be done. All they need, he said, is a means to accomplish it; Paul Hanshaw.
