CHANGE IN OUR
TAX LAWS NEEDED
To Bo Voted On In
EQUITABLE SYSTEM DEMANDED
Last General Assembly Passed . an
Amendment to the State Constitu
tion Relating to Revenue and Taxa
Frankfort. Ky. (Spcclal)--Tho last
General Assembly In Kentucky passed
an amendment to the 8tate Constitu
tion relating to revenue and taxation
with a view of abolishing the anti
quated general property tax and sub
stituting a more flexible system known
to bo more equitable and productive
of greator revenuo In other states.
The tax commission appointed un
der another act at tho same session
made a thorough Investigation and re
ported unanimously In condemnation
of the present law and strongly urged
the adoption ot tho amendment by the
voters at the November election.
It is a significant fact that since the
adoption of the present Constitution
in 1891, which provided that "taxes
should be uniform on all property," a
largo volume of personal property has
disappeared from the assessors rolls
for the simple reason that such prop
erty wad taxed out of existence or at
least out of sight.
The owner of a bond, for Instance,
who received 4 Interest and was
called upon to pay In Some instances
2V or more, In taxes either sold his
bond or Jailed to return It for taxa
tion and cash, notes, boads, Btbcks la
forelfcn -corporations and such -like In
vestmeats are apparently no longer
owned by JCentucklans.
Burden of Taxes Transferred.
This has bad a tendency to transfer
the burden ot taxation to -real estate
and other property inTxiskt and-lsaot
only unequal iut unjust.
Tie Teal -estate- owner 'has sought
to diminish Its value and In, order to
protect himself transfers of property
fori "jorie dollar and other valuable con
siderations" has demoralized the true
values and leaves the assessor no
guide to follow.
Our citizens have unblushlngly
omitted such items In" their returns
for assessment and have felt Justified
in doing so.
w The finances of the state, have fall
en Into confusion and revenue agents
and arbitrary boards ot so-called
"Equalization" have failed to discover
such property and secure their assess
ment. Under the present law every man is
practically his own assessor and the
courts have sustained the practice, as
the law permits, no other course.
General Property Tax Desirable.
Other states have long since recog
nized the inefficiency of the "General
Property Tax," and In these states we
see enterprise 'rewarded and wealth
accumulating, while the tendency in
Kentucky baa been to hide our light
and. incidentally our valuables for fear
of the tax" collector's discovery.
Our progress has been retarded.
Our population diminished and aside
from the land owners and some mer
chants We do not seem to have much
wealth left In the state.

finds it out and sues tor omitted as
sessments of former years and the as
eessor puts them on the tax list. The
wldqw anil orphan are compolled to
pay two or three per cent in taxes and
live on the remainder. '
Is such a system fair?
