TAX RETRENCHMENT SUBJECT
OF TALK AT PRESS MEETING
Address by Pres. W. P. Epperson
at tho Soml-annunl Convention ot tho
Utah Stnto Press Association, Rich
field, Utah, Septcmbor 2, 1922.
Today in Utah, as in all lntormoun
tain and coast statos, tho greatest
nandlcap to return of normal condi
tions nnd prosperity Is exccsslvo tax
ation This Is a condition recognlzod
by all our cltizons. Tho Stato Farm
Bureau has taken up tho matter and
it Is hoped will make some progress
.n its program for tax reduction. Com
missions aro Investigating tax condi
tions in all the mountain states and
business organizations and commer
cial clubs have taken up the matter
In duo time theso commissions and
committees will report but it is sato
to assume that boyond shitting the
tax burden from ono class of proporty
to another, nothing will bo accom
plished. Shifting assessments from
ono form ot proporty to another will
not reduce taxes. In tho last analysts
every man, woman and child has to
pay his sliaro of taxation, it not on
property, through tho Increased prices
of commodities caused by abnormal
Recommendations of commissions
avail but Uttlo, as the chief end ot
all commission investigations and so
called tax reform movements is to ac
cure more funds from tho taxpayer.
The State ot Utah Is not especially
in need ot a new form ot taxation or
Diner lax reiorm. inu oiuy remuuy
possible is to cut appropriations for .
general state purposes and stato in- 193
stltutlons and mako it a penal offense
for the state boards to authorizo ad
ditional expondltures whon legislative
appropriations havo boon exhausted.
The partial or total abolition ot somo
of tho state commissions and tho re
duction ot tho numbor ot members on
tho commissions would help make it
possiblo for tho legislature to make a
tremendous cut In appropriations.
Somo of you, perhaps most of you,
will ask where I recommend a cut In I
expenllturcs. Tho answer is, all along
the lino In every state institution,
bar 'none and I would mako that cut li
no loss than 25 por cent. I hear you
ask It I would cut tho schools 25 por
cent. The answer Is yes, all tho
schools whoro special subjects not es
sential to a rudimentary education
aro bolng taught, but under no con
sideration would I rocommend cutting
the salary ot offlclont touchers. In
fact, I would bo Inclined to ralso tho
salaries of the best. I would cut out
non-essential subjects and pay moro
attention to rudimentary education,
thus preparing tho pupil for a higher
education, should ho desire It.
But this Is dipping Into an argu
ment I doslro to nvold. Tho main
proposal is a gross reduction ot taxes
and tho only way to bring nbout a
reduction Is to cut tho public expendi
tures. During recont years taxation has in
creased enormously. Figures takon
from tho United Statos census shows
tho total tax levied In Utah in 1912
was $6,528,959 and in 1921 it was $18,
334,50,. Tho por capita tax in 1912
was $10.13, and in 1921, $40.74.
Those figures aro appalling when
ono takes into consideration that tho
total taxable valuation ot the state is
loss than $700,000,000. Now, I want
to say to you mombors of tho Utah
Broadbent & Son's Store

State Press Association:
'You, through your newspapers, are
tbo only hope tho pcoplovhavo. It Is
within your power to put a Btop to
this excessive taxation by giving
notlio that you will not support any
candidate who will not pledgo himself
to vote for reductions of at loast 25
'per nnt In legislative appropr
iations. Seo to It that those
1 pledges are mado beforo nominations
I aro made in conventions, but nbovo
all, bore It Into your roadors that only
men who really favor such moasures
bo nominated for senators or repre
sentatives. It matters not whether
nominees represent tho church, tho
bar, tho farm bureau or big business,
it is not Biyiclont recommendation for
a candidate unless he Is unqualifiedly
In tnvor of at least a 25 por cont re
duction In stato appropriations.
This Is not a matter ot politics, for
as a matter of fact neither party is
solely responsible for thoso conditions.
It is true that tho prosont adminis
tration has saved monoy In tho con
duct ot tho gonoral affairs ot tho
state, but the same would bo oxpoctcd
of any other administration now that
war conditions aro passing. I favor
tho "Utah Stato Pross Association join
ing with the Farm Bureau and tho
Utah Manufacturers Association and
other bodies for tnx retrenchment, but
beforo doing so it should bo clearly
understood that tax retrenchment
