An increase of eleven cents In the
tax rate for Vance county, exclusive
of school items, is shown in the re
vised tentative budget estimates for
the year beginning July 1, 1932. aAd
ending June 30. 1933. as made public
today by O. W. Adams, county ac
countant. including changes In the
budget as made by the Board of
County Commissioners at a meeting
held last Tuesday. The exhibit Is now
on file at the accotmfant's office for
Inspection before the commissioners
take final action.
The new rate, if this budget is
adopted as it stands, will be 10 cents
on the SIOO property valuation, as
compared with 29 cents last year. The
estimates are based on a property
valuation this year of $17,500,000,
which is ha!f a million dollars less
than for 1931.
The biggest increase in a single
item is that for debt service, where
the rate is boo. ted from eight cents
last year to 18 cents this year, with
the total amount of tax levy for that
purpose being $3<W70.14. The county
general fund is jumped from 12 cents
last year to 15 cents this year to raise
a l’vy of $26,126.34. The poor fund
levy remains the same, five cents, to
raise $9.466 11. while there is a reduc
tion of two cents from four cents to
two c'-nts in the county health fund
to raise $3,557.36.
The total amount of the tax levy
Is thin $69.719 95. realized from a 40
ten's rate on $17,500,000 valuation.
Total budget requirements are given
as S7B 000 45. but it is estimated that
sl2 118 in revenue will be available
from other sources than the tax levy,
leaving 665.582.45. Uncollectible taxes,
commissions and discounts are esti
ma'ed at $4,137.50. which, added to
the $65.582 45 needed to balance the
budget, makes a total of $69,719.95 a.-
the amount of the levy.
The budget also provides for thr
spe:ial levy in Townsville townshif
for Townsville railroad bonds and in
tercut. which Is given as $7.175 66. and
wilt require a tax rate of $142 this
year, as compared with $1 44 last year
This is an addition for Townsville 1
township, and paid only on property
in that township, over and above thr
county wide levy.
Ten'ative figures have not yet beer
completed on the school requirement?
and these will be added to the budge
estimates mad public today by Coun
ty Accountant Adams.
