State Tax Levy Fund Levy Amount General fund .. 1.23 mills $1,236,256 School fund. . .1.90 mills 1,909,664 Military fund. . .11 mills • 110,559 Permanent high way fund. .. 1.00 mills 1,005,080 Public high way fund... .50 mills 502,543 Institutions of higher educa- >■■', tion 1.05 mills 1,055.34 1 Total 5.79 mills $5,819,449 Figures for the state tax levy for 1912, given out by the state board of equalization upon completion of their labors, show a total levy for state purposes of 5.79 mills, which raise a total of $5,819,499, while the state is shown to have entered the billion dollar class on assessed valuations, the total being $1,005,086,251 for both real and personal property. As the average ratio of assessed to actu H valuation for the state is found by thi state board to be 42.41 per cent, this would indicate the taxable property in the state of Washington has reached an actual valuation of $2, --500,000,000 in round numbers. La.<t. year the total assessed valuation wa3 $955,000,000. Assessed valuation totals hats been arrived at by the state board as follows: While the levy of 5.79 mills is an increase of .76 of a mill over the 3 911 levy of 5.03 mills, this is occa sioned by the new legislative pro vision requiring a fixed levy of .5 of a mill for the public highway fund, and providing fixed levies for the state educational institutions, instead of making appropriations for the edu cational institutions from the general fund. The fixed levy, totalling 1.05 mills, gives these institutions more than they would have gotten undo*, lhe old system. Other than, in the respects the- levy for this year would be in effect a slight reduction from last year in tax rate. The general fund, reduced by ex clusion of educational Institutions has a levy of 1.23 mills, producing $1,236,25 6. Last year the general fund levy was 2.10 mills. The school fund levy is 1.90 mills producing $1,909,664, and with the 1.05 for the state institutions of higher education, producing $1,055, 341; makes a total of 2.95 mills and $2,965,055 for educational purposes. The permanent highway fund of 1 mill, which takes the place of the oh! state aid road fund, producing $1. --005,086 and the levy of one-half mM for the public highway producing $502,543, makes a total road levy of 1.50 mills producing $1,507,629 for road purposes. This shows thai 75 per cent of all state taxes goes for roads and educational purposes, and the money collected therefore by the state is returned to the counties and the institutions. All the revenues of the permanent highway fund are ap portioned directly among tha counties, the full amount each pays in, so the state acts merely as collec lion agent. Formerly the counties had to raise an amount equal to what ever they received from the state. Now the whole amount is covered in the state levy. The total levy of 1.05 mills for the slate educational institutions, is seg regated, under legislative provision, as follows: University of Washing ton, .475 mills; state College, Pull man, .325 mills; Bellingham normal, .09 mills; Cheney normal, .09 mills, Ellensburg normal, .07 mills. This year the state board, on show lug made of increased assessmen: rate in proportion to actual valua tion, tins credited Thurston county SCORE CARD FOR POTATO CONTESTS A number of schools and counties are holding potato contests this year and have asked for assistance in making their awards.
