ENWALD PLAYING TAXDODGER
Chicago's Great Philanthropist Reported $500,000
Raised Over $2,000,000 Other Taxdodgers Who
Got Caught at It By the Board of Review
Sears-Roebuck Crowd Is Very Thrifty.
Chicago's pet philanthropist, Julius Rosenwald, two other members of
his family and three other officials of the firm of Sears, Roebuck Com
pany are shown as taxdodgers by 1913 records of the Board of Assessors and
the Board of Review.-
For only last summer Julius Rosenwald filed for only $500,000 before
the Board of Assessors. And when the-Board of Review went over these
figures they fixed his personal property at $2,510,917.
This is probably the most open and notorious case of taxdodging that
appears on the records of Cook county.
Augusta N. Rosenwald, 4907 Grand boulevard, was not assessed by the
Board of -Assessors. ,
The Board of Review then, made an investigation and fixed,, her per
sonal property at $441,320.
Morrjs Rosenwald, Tiead of the Rosenwald-Weil Clothing .Company, a
brother of Julius Rosenwald,filed for $25,000-before the Board of Assessors.
When the Board of Review went over his property they fixed the amount
at $36,890.
