SWHY TAXES M1
(Charleston News & Courier.)
Tie primary facts with reference
to the tax situat-ion in South Carolina
are so .big and so outstanding that
one can only [be amazed that they
continue to be ignored in Columbia.
We hear continuously of the necess
Ity of "finding now sources of reve
nue." We hear very little of what Is
inoro vital at the present time, name
ly, the necessity of reducing appropri
itions and exI)enditures.
What the Legislature needs to
realize, and what the people of South
Darolina must realize, is that for the
past two years .public expenditures
In this state have been beyond the
ibility of the people to pay. This Is
the -hard fact, It cannot be blinked
in the end; the legislature ought to
recognize its existence now.
In his annual meIssage to the legis
lature Governor Cooper stated that on
November 1, 1921, "there was un-col
ected, from taxes of 1920, practically
$1,250,000." This -morning The News
md Courier prints statements from
he county treasurers of thirty-four
:ounties showing that In those coun
Jes only $6,151,323 of the 1921 taxes
iave been paid out of a total assess
nent of $11,017,774, for the counties
There is thus $4,866,421 of the
1921 taxes still outstanding and un
.ollected in these counties. The fol
.owing table has -been made II) froi

'Whe1n the legislature fixed the
State and county taxes of South Caro
lina for 1921 at $18,257,021.25 it was
oni the basis of a cotton -crop worth
Itwo hundred millions or more. With
a cotton crop worth less than 'half
this amount the money to pay such a
tax 'bill shnly does not cxist-es-pec

over half the present crop is in eleven
counties. No shifting of taxation will
make it 'possibel to meet such a budget

anything like it. If the land owners
and farmers are unable to pay, nwho is?
