(Continued on Page Eight) ct Tax Commission Suggests Changes in Tax Methods FundaSALT LAKE CITY mental changes in the methods of administering taxes in )the state of Utah are contained in the state tax commission's biennial report to Governor Henry H. Blood. Suggestions for outstanding importance submitted in the report, after long study of the tax system by the state commission include: 1. Changing of the method of selecting county assessors from the elective system to one based on merit through examination or other strict requirements. 2. Abolishment of the universal filing fee which harasses thousands of distreed people unable to pay the $1 and thouands of others with- out income. Repeal of the property tax offset with the suggestions that rates of individual Income tax might be increased to 6 per cent. 4. Criticism of the sales tax, except for emergency revenue only.... the state tax commission is opposed to the sales tax for the relief of property because it does not give rel ief where relief is Intended; corporate property escapes taxation unde rthls system, and the small home owner and wage earner bears the brunt of the burden. 3. 5. Recommendation of a flat rate for registration mobiles. 6. Change of passenger auto- in the law so that cars using Diesel oil can by registration be required to bear their fair portion of the cost of maintaining highways. 7. Recommendations that the In- heritance tax should apply on life insurance, but not on all joint property owned by a husband and wife or others; appraisal of estates by the state tax commission is also adVised, 8. Acknowledgement that the present method of assessing metal policy alone should determine whether the multitude of three used in estimating the value of metal in place, as In the mine, should be raised, lowered or retained. All of the recommendations are made with the idea of attaining the tax commission's ideal of uniform assessment and uniform col lection. The change in the method of selecting county assessors Is one that the commission believes to be most Important for the creation and maintenance of an adequate, just and sound tax system.
