EDWARD J. HOUGHTON, Director of the Department of Streets and Public Improvements. Dated June 21th, 1919. Attest! Eugene J. McLaughlin, City Clerk. 6741-6-2S-7-2-9 I - I -- Up to Saturday $1,037,491.40 Had Been Turned In at City Hall Great strides have been made In the collection of taxes In this city un der the new law, which allows a tax payer the privilege of making two payments of their taxes, one payment being due June 1 and the other De- i cember 1. Since the first of the pres ent year Ellsworth B. Walker, the city collector, paid Saturday taxes amounting to $1,037,491.40 have come Into the collector’s office. One of the main reasons for this early payment of taxes Is the fact that a discount of six per cent, per annum Is allowed on all tax bills. During the month of January the collections amounted to $203,641.51; during February they amounted to $76,936.53; during March they amounted to $50,092.50; during April they amounted to $56,931.30; during May they amounted to $453,595.78; and up to Thursday night, June 26, they amount for that month $196, 293.78. Some Idea of how the city had grown and the progress made here may he gained from the fact that In 1916 the total collections for the year were between $500,000 and $600,000. In former years the tax bills were put out about election time each November and the tax became a lein on the property after December 20 and no discount was allowed for their payment. Under the present system the bills are sent out about the first of June and are payable in two in stallments; if the first Installment is not paid by Juno 1 that half becomes a lein against the property. The sec ond half is not due until December 1, and if not paid then it also becomes a lein against the property and no in terest is granted. Many people are taking advantage of the interest and are paying their taxes so as to save that amount. A delinquent tax collector has been sent out and is making good progress in the collection of delinquent per sonal taxes. These are taxes due on automobiles, store stock and all per sonal matters. This tax is due for the year 1918 and amounts to $70,000 or $80,000. This tax ought to be paid and must be paid said Collector Walker. 'Grocer! * send me S .1 v E J.
