The Remedy For Unfair Assessments
The most important element in the
assessment of property for taxation
is not that the valuations be either
high or low, but that they be fair and
uniform that all kinds of property of
like character and of equal value
should be assessed at the same value
regardless of the social, political, or
personal standing and influence of its
It is self-evident that so long as the
present system of local assessors is
retained there cannot be any such
thing as a fair and uniform valuation
of property as between the owners
thereof in the same taxing district.
The local conditions and influences
which inevitably surround and embar
rass the local asse&sor are such that
no matter how conscientious he may
be he cannot fairly and impartially
fix the valuation of the property of his
neighbors, friends and enemies. Do
the best he can, either favoritism or
prejudice, charity or overmastering
influence warp his judgment and mili
tate against the integrity of his as
It is most important that this local
or initial assessment should be as
fair and perfect as it is possible to
make it. It is the foundation upon
which all of the taxes levied upon the
valuation of property is predicted. It
directly concerns the individual tax
payer, and is intended to place him
upon an equality with his neighbors.
If it fails to do this he pays either a
higher or a lower tax than he should.
The present system not only fails to
give, but is a positive impediment to
fair and uniform taxation.
How can this unwholesome state of
affairs be remedied? While an ab
solutely perfect system*cannot be de
vised, a great improvement can be
made by the" enactment of laws based
upon the following principles, viz:
1st. The assessor should not "be
subject to the embarrassing influ
ences already mentioned. As far as
possible he should be free from any
relationship, connection or associa
tion with the persons whose property
it is his duty to assess.
2nd. The assessor should be a per-

should be amendable for the fairness
and thoroughness of his work to

After long and careful considera

mission has become convinced that
the most feasible way in which to se
cure a fair and equitable assessment
of taxable property is to abolish the
office of local assessor and to substi
tute in its place that of a county as
