E-PAGE 3 r/SJ Is Tax The employment of s t r e e t hawkers, or news'boys, was be­ gun in America in 1754. , (Special to The Journal) P standpoint of . propi erty ..ta?ces, are residents of,\ Washingtoii county making out fhese days? What changes have taken place J.a,tely: % property valu­ ations in the local area? . With people all oyer the cpuntry aroused oyer their steadily mounting real estate taxes,, a look at the local' assess­ ment situation is in order. : Such a look has just been taken by the census bureau as part of a nationwide survey of •State and local government op erations, which it makes every five years. Its ftndings are re­ leased in the “Census pi Gov­ ernments, 1967.” / - They show \that in Washing­ ton county, where the property tax is the principal source of revenue for local government needs, the assessed value of property subject to such tax, came to $51,815,000, compared with the total reppsted five years before, $50,184,000. , The figures'do not include property belonging to churches, non-profit hospitals and public agendes that are generally exempt from taxation. Because property is usually assessed, for tax, purposes at' something less than its actual value, this is not to be taken as the true market worth. Rather, it is the ,tas base against which local tax rates are applied. * , The tax rates usec£{n connec­ tion with gssessed value vary ’^ i d e l y ^ e j ^ J f t e cduntry,^ In sppie areas, where property is assessed at only a small frac­ tion of r,eal valdue, tax rates are often/higher than in places where assessments are closer to- values.1 ► In' terms of population/ the tax base in Washington county was equivalent to $1,004—in taxable. property per local- resi- deiiit.*.

As a result of this, trend, the revenue from property taxes throughout the United States lias increasedi toy nearly 10 per cent during 1967 alone. . 1 5 4-H Members In Washington : On July 28 five Washington county 4-_Hieys and the summer assistant agent; Harry Robbiiis, will go to Washington, D.
