STATE LOST TAXES
Bf HEW STATUTE
Franchise Rate Cut in Half by
Legislature at Demand
MANY LABOR CASES TRIED

Completion of the assessment by thv
State Corporation Commission of the!
property and gross receipts of water
companies, gas companies, light, heat
and power companies for 1912 shows a
net decrease in taxes from last year or
SI2.716.30. The actual loss to the State
for the year is littles' 11. which is re?
duced to the apparent loss of $12.746.20
by the natural increase in earnings and
property values sinew the 11*11 assess-;
inent was made.
This loss comes about because of the
action of the Legislature at Its last
session in reducing the rate of assess?
ment upon the gross receipts of such
corporations from 1 per cent, to one
half of 1 per cent.
To he more explicit, the demand Of
the city of Newport News for a re?
storation of its former right to Im?
pose a license tax on such concerns
has cost the State $1S,000 this year,
and will cost It more in the years ls>|
come. It would seem better business
to have ordered the Auditor to pay
Newport News the $1.000 a year It
lost, rather than to have passed the
bill. The companies through the 8tata
j save much money by reason of this
legislation, for in only a few cities is
the local license tax Imposed.
Is 1910. the Legislature put water!
companies, gas companies, light, heat
and power companies in the category
of public service corporations, requir?
ing them to report to the State Cor?
poration Commission and to pay 1 per]
cent of their gross receipts to the
State in lieu of all other license taxes.
Theretofore Newport News had a
license tax of $l.0?0 on its light, heat
and power ?ompany, which was lost to
it. So it asked the last Legislature
for a right to continue to Impose a
[MesBaM tax. To do this, a general law
w-as necessary, and. that the companies
be not too heavily burdened, the Stats
license rat? was cut in half.
In justice to the Virginia Railway]
and Power Company, it should be stat?
ed that part of its business is separat-j
ed from the other part, so that In the
report recently published of assess?
ments against street railways, account
was not taken of Its light, beat and
power business, on which the taxes
have just been assessed. The total
! Sta?<- tax on all properties assessed
against It this year is $52.124.13. mak?
ing it one of the largest taxpayers to
; the State. Its light, heat and power
department will pay $14,475.76. nearly
one-third of the total State tax against
all water, gas, light and power cum
j panics, which Is $46.315.78.
