and testament of the late deceased.
It has been figured out that at the
present rate of departure of widows
from the state it will be but a few
short years until Iowa has no charm
Yet when one stops to think that
the widow who Is left a small fortune
by the will of her husband is com
pelled to pay a 2 per cent tax on that
fortune, which is often Just enough to
carry her in comfort to the end of her
days, while rich men who know all
the tricks, and devices, of tax dodging
and who Invest their moneys outside
of the state escape the law, there
comes a feeling to them that possibly
the law is unjust.
The question has a financial side as
well, a phase which actually affects
interest rates. Most of those widows
who are left money in any amount
usually lend It out on good farm mort
gages. "When they discover that while
they are lending the money at a small
rate of Interest they must pay 2 per
cent of it back in taxes they begin to
get wise and either send the money out
of the state for Investment or remove
from the state to those states where
no such law is on the statute books.
Their removal or the Investment out
side of the state reduces the loan com
petition, and the result Is that Interest
rates advance because there is not the
money to lend that .there was when
this money was kept in the state and
An interesting case in point is that
of a Cedar Itapids widow who was left
moneys and credits to the amount of
$185,000. She liked Cedar Rapids and
had hoped to spend, her remaining
days In the old home there, enjoying
the .income from her little fortune.
But she was a practical woman as
well, and when at the end. of the first
year she found that she must pay a 2
per cent tax on her little fortune she
simply pulled up stakes and went to
New Tork city, never to return to
Iowa to live.
The case Is but one of dozens which,
occur every year.
