Enlargement of Powers of Equalization'Body iand Abolition
of Poll Tax is Recommended. Full Value Assessments.
Lower RatcsHeld Best. Preliminary Report of Commis
sion Already Given Approval of State Officers. Will Go
To Legislature in Present Form.
Radical changes In revenue collec
tions and taxation aro recommended
In a preliminary report completed
yesterday by the board of commis
sioners on revenue and taxation, com
prising C. S. Peterson, Harden Ben
nlon and Francis W. Klrkham, to bo
published nnd submitted to tho peo
ple ln order to awaken public Inter
est and discussion and finally to be
presented to tho legislature ln tho
form of a bill.
Tho report has been submitted al
ready to tho governor, attorney gen
eral, tho board of equalization and
other stnto officials, who havo passed
favorably upon It, and It will prob
nbly go to tho legislature In Its pres
ent form.
Among other things tho report rec
ommends abolition of tho poll tax.
Tho document states that whllo tho
present rovenuo laws deserve tho
worst that hns been said of them
as being unequitable, unequal and
contradictory thoy contain many ml
mtrnblo provisions, which it is rec
ommonded, should rcmnin intnet.
Board's Position Viewed
As to iho powers ot tho board ot
equalisation, It states that this body
should havo general supervision over
tho county assessors and recommends
that taxpayers should be empowered
to appeal to tho board direct or to
boards ot county officials that tho as
sessor's salary should bo materially
increased and his term of office bo
four yenrs.
Based upon laws existing In other
stntcs, tho commltteo In Its report
recommends that assessments bo
mado at full valuo and that tho rate
be lowered, thus systematizing a tax
situation found troublcsomo In the
past. In regard to tax ot personal
property, It Is stated that tho rail
roadst n Utah arc taxed at a much
higher rato than In other states tra
versed. On money and credits tlie report
complains that the amount ot taxes
Is very small and efforts in the past
have failed in these collections. It
recommends either the abandonment
ot this tax or the classification of
money and credits and taxation ot
them at a low rate not less than
three mills or moro than five mills
and suggests a compromise mens
uro to enable the stato to get what
Is due it from this source.
An entiroly now Inheritance tax Is
recommended. Tho present rato Is
declared too high, that peoplo arrango
for tho transfer of their property, be
fore death, In order to avoid tho
tax. The now tnx, ns recommended,
contains a moro liberal and attract
ive policy. Tho .committee upholds
an cqultnulo lucomo tnx.
Tho tme consideration in deeds is
nn important division of tho report
recommendation being mado that
thoso transferring real or personal
piopero stato tho exact valuo of tho
property In tho deed or othor instru
ment. And on tho undivided Inter
est In le.tl ostnto It Is recommended
that the law be amonded so that tho
owner of tho undivided Interebt can
pay his tax thereon, thus froolng his
undivided Interest of tho lien of tho
unpaid part of tho tax.
With relation to tho mines, it is
asserted that a more effective nsses
ment can bo had by placing it in Iho
hands of tho county assessors pio
vlded they aro undor tho supervision
of tho hoard of equalization.
Public service corporations, steam
nnd electric roadB, telephone and tele
graph campanlos doing business lu
tho sovcral counties ot tho statu ac
cording to tho present constitution
nro securo In tha present form ot
taxation, but tho commltteo proposes
an amendment as to tho actual cash
valuo, amount of dividends nnd net
and gross earnings.
Heavy Penalty Uroed
Under the head of procedure It Is
recommended to provldo a substan
tial ponnlty for the non-payment of
(axes and to make tho purchase nt
tax sales a safe and attractive In
vestment. In their report, members of tho
commltteo Indorse nil the proposed
constitutional amendments now be
foro tho voters ot the stats.
The last Utah legislature author
ized tho committee on revenue nnd
taxation with power to make a caro
tul and complete compilation ot all
the laws bearing upon the subject
of taxation In tho state to investigate
the present system nnn to consider
smtlar laws in other states of the
Union. Members of tho comialtteo
named last February mado a study
of tho matter and hold meetings w'th
officials, getting suggestions and ox
changing laws, tho final meeting be
ing held with tho board of equaliza
tion this week.
Part of tho Introduction of tho r?
port follows:
"Neither did we understand that
It was our duty to recommend chang
