EMPLOYERS HAVE REDUCTION
IN UNEMPLOYMENT TAXES
Helena, — (U.P) — Montana cm
pi ovt . rs received a reduction in state
. unemployment compensation taxes
1 amounting to $1,837,000 on the basis
of a more than 95 per rent return
for 1947, according to Barclay
Craighead, chairman of the Mon
tana Unemployment Compensation
Commission.
"This was made possible by the
operation of an experience rating
amendment to the law providing in
general for a one-third reduction of
collections from the old standard
rate of 2,7 per cent,'' Craighead
said. I should like to point out that
this is the only reduction in taxes
Montana employers got in 1947."
Total taxable wages for the year,
paid by state employers, reached
$191.544,300 in 1947, an increase of
more than $37,000,000 over 1946 as
a I t u lt of the increased employ
I ment and wages and salaries.
