Supervisors lo Fix Road. School and
County Taxes.
To the Tux Payer:
The most important step in fix
ing your taxes will be taken -at the
next meeting of the Board of Su
pervisors, beginning Monday,
November 7th, 1921. Then the
Board "Will Fix the Annual Tax
Rates, for the County, for the
School Districts, and for the Road
Districts. In some counties, the
taxes imposed by the Supervisors,
last year, were six times as great
as the State tax. and most of the
State tax was returned to the conn
ties for the public schools and Cosn ■
federate pensions. Some counties
received more from the State than
the total State tax collected from
all the tax pavers in the county.
The development of our public
schools system and the construe
tion of good roads are desired py
all; yet'heseare largely Jrespousi
ble for,the increases made in tuxes
in recent years. You may verify
this for vourself bv comparing
your tax receipt tor last year with
that for ten yeais ago.
The Supervisors then determine
yvhether these expenses will be
curtailed too the present fiscal year.
Their decision, then determines
whether your taxes will be moreoi
less than last year.
