NEW STATE IJUTf ' RATE PROPOSED i Committee Gives Out Pro- . - I: bable Kate on intangible Personal Property ^ c RATE TO BE REDUCED \ c r AH Property Voluntarily Disclosed to Secure Reduction but All Other 1 1 to pay Full State and City Taxes. ( c The Committee on Tax Revision c which will make its report to a spec- ( ial session or the State Legislature, 1 has found more serious inequalities in the payment of taxes on intangi- 1 ble personal property than on any i other. Unlike real estate on which 1 all owners pay, though on widely c varying rates and assessments on t like values, the inequalities amour j r owners A intangibles, and between > Intangibles and other classes result from the payment by a few on full1 f values at a high rate and conceal t S ment and 110 payment at all by ? ! v great many of the owners of tiiisjv class of property. - i e Prom the beginning of history this J < property has been hidden from the! P tax collector, but more successfully i o in each generation. When found, 1 v the tax rate in some of our localities ! 0 confiscates the income from it. Vir j c giniaus have been more honest about, tl paying on it, in such circumstances, J tl than most people. A special tax j a committee for that State reported! v that Kentucky received more revon-} ue for the year 1912 from its .dogs j than it did from all the bonds, mon- h eys and stocks in the State. | 0 it)l!S Iutangible Personal Ib-op- j tl erty Assessment.

All. Virginia bank stock is assessed r It pays all State and local rates on! ( full value, and is, therefore, perhaps | the highest taxed property in the 3 State. It is believed that nearly a'^ ! c half of the property under the con- trol of guardians, fiduciaries and c court commissioners is assessed. Excluding these two items, it is known j ' that not one tenth of the intangible personal property in the Commonwealth is assessed for taxation. Take four striking illustrations: * * The estates of dead people pay more than one fifth of all the taxes on this class of property. One Examiner of Records found 13 people assessed with $14,000. or intangibles the last years of their lives: at death they held $1,340,000. worth. -| Death disclosed to the same Examin-j ^ or and secured 21 other omitted assessments of $10,182,000. 1 In 1913 the total assessment of 1 bonds, notes and other evidences or i debt in the City of Richmond was $4.846.174.. vet in that year the deeds of trust alone that were record ? y'^:'' *';;yTSg$: ed in the city, securing bonds and < notes alone amounted., to ..$14,'563,. }| 0.10.J>5. Her best informed real es-j( tate men say that there is in the] iiity at least* $70|0^66^000. of suet secured bonds, anji notes, in addition to the large but unknown amount of such securities which are insecured. Still Richmond is prob- , ibly more fairly assessed than the iverage locality. In 1913 the total State assessment >f merchants and manufacturers , .vas $27,69r.,4?>f?., yet the 1910 census, carefully taken on this item, shows Virginia manufacturers' capi- , nl nf s9 1 a aot .lSS; a ratio of asses ;ed to true value of 12.7S';. Thi 'atio varies as follows: Alexandria ^ 5.4?%; Danville 1(5.94^: Lyncb>urg 19.45*^: Norfolk 2.1.60%; . 'etersburg, IS.08%: Portsmouth ?>.>9oj : Richmond 4 0.1">r; ; Roanoke /< ( r.45% : Staunton 20.90% : balance >f State 5.04 %. The census figures lo not deduct assessed value of real ?state. An allowance should be made 11 or this. k In 1914 operating under the new ,n otal 20c rate on money, there was s issessed in the whole State as of j * ' February 1st. $25,090,911. of nion-,\ >y, vet the bank statements show!'*1 i hat on March 4th there was on de-ju iosit .in the Virginia banks $150.-J": 127,998.15. I' In Virginia the average tax ratej c< or all purposes, Stale and local, is!'w 1.4 95 on the $100.00 of assessed}'^ aluation. Based on estimated truejw alues, the real rate for all purpos-j,,s s paid is on real estate as a wholeclass ,577c; on tangible personal j/P1 roperty as a whole class ,70c; and j ^ n intangible personal property as a j hole class less tnan . i ->r. uui mostj"f those who do pay on this last] lass pay on its true valuation at IP1 lioir combined State and local rate.|^ liat is, nearly three times as much [ P1 s is paid on real estate of equal !a' alue. he Tteniedies. j The Committee has struggled to j111 nd a true solution of the problem j n f securing the assessment of all of A ills class of property and fixing a| ^ tir ;"6te tlurtor.; without entire sue2ss.
