Es caping Taxation Impossible to Force Men to Assess Some Kinds cf Property Under the Present System The general prbperfjj tax was put Into effect in Kentucky partly because IIt was believed that unrffir the old sys tom a great deal of property in the shape of money bondstocks mort gages lien notes and other evidences of credit escaped taxation It was hoped that by a rigid system of assessment and inspection a greater amount of this class of property could be brought to light greatly increasing the revenues of the state The system has succeeded in bring ing some ef this kind jfi property to light but there is stillan enormous amount of it that escapes taxation The general property lax it should be remembered decrees that the same- must fall on all classes of property Lotus suppose a man living in almost any town in the state is the owner of a land note for 1000 on which 6 per cent interest is paid him In some of the towns in the state his combined town county and state tax would be over 3 in most of them it would be between 250 and 3 Manifestly a man will be very unwilling to give in for taxation a piece of property that yields him 6 per cent only when by so reporting it he condemns himsel to having to give up nearly half the Income from that property to the tax collectorPerjury or Confiscation But the greater part of property of this class does not pay as much as 6 per cent A vast amount of this prop erty held in the state perhaps as much as half of it is property held in trust for the benefit of widows and children who are not able to earn money themselves but depend for their support upon the income from property that has been left them by the husband and father and which will be largely Invested In notes stocks bonds and this general class of property In normal times much of this class of investment will not pay over 4 per cent the Jnpome running from 4 to 51per cent If now the tax rate absorbs from 2 to 3 per cent it will be readily seen that very little is left for the support of these helpless people The temptation to conceal property when the tax on it will absorb from onehalf to threefourths of the income It yields is stronger than the norma man can rcsIst and as a rule he does not try to resist it in any state where this system of the general property tax prevails and that is why the tax authorities of states are coming so generally to denounce it In Kentucky the evasions of the tax on this class of property are enormous In Septem ber 1905 only 11480000 of bonds only 1438195 of stock in corpora tions and only 13046837 of bank de posits was given in for taxation al though the banks and trust companies of the stats contained in that year 93500000 of deposits At the same time the assessors were able to find only 5407312 of money outside the banks or a total of about 18500000 of money That there should have been then only about 93000000 of deposits In the banks of the entire state of Kentucky is the most damning proof of the supreme economic folly of our systemEffect on Value of Real Estate We may mark the secondary effect of this policy In the valuation of real estate It takes capital and accompanying prosperity to enhance real es tate values In 1880 the as sessed real estate valuation war 265085908 or 160 per capita In 1890 before our new constitution with the present tax system went into effect the valuation increased to 203 per capita In 1900 after eight years of the new tax system it had in creased to 209au increase of only 6 per Capita ThIitotal assessed wealth of the state in 1880 was 21263 per capita In 1890 just before the pew constitution it had increased to 275 From 1890 to 1906 with 11 years under the new tax system it In creased only to 293 per capitaan increase of less than 18 per capita in 16 years al11itsnew con stitution adopted in 1891 abolished most ot this but did allow municipall ties to give five years exemption to new manufacturing concerns The act putting this clause of the constUutlcn Into effect was not passed until 1898 The decade then from 1880 to 1890 Illustrates the progress possible under the old liberal system the decade Jrom 1890 to 1900 illustrates the result conIstftutlon1900 well show the result of the liberal policy of encouragement Mark then the result From 1880 to 1890 under a policy of encouragement the capital employed in manufacturing in Ken tucky increased 742 per cent From 1890 to 1900 with all encouragement withdrawn and heavy taxes imposed the capital invested in manufactures increased only 304 per cent About 1900 the fiveyears exemptions had been granted in many cities and towns and from 1900 to 1905 the cap- Ital invested In manufactures in Kentucky increased 674 per centI UNJUST TAX PLAN The Tax Commissioners of the IStates Ag re 3 r Systemj Jn discussing tax questions in Ken lucky and elsewhere frequent refer ence is made to the gen r lproperty tax This is the kind Xf system Kentucky has 1n force Its the sys- tern that Is in force in most of the states Briefly the general property tax is UPO1Ica- pacity or of the tangible or intangible character of the property The taxing authority of a state for instance will levy a tax of 50 cents This tax is to fall upon every kind of property alike Everything of value wetTer real es tate money in bjink notes bonds mortgages shares of stocky live stock wagons carriages jewelry furniture any sort of persqnal property or fran chises of corporations is called prop erty and must pay this tax This Is the general propertytax The general property taxis therefore the levying of a uniform ad valorem tax on all property for all purposes As distinct from this system is the system of classifying property raising state revenues from one kind of property county revenues from another kind of property and city revenues from still another kind and also the raising of revenues by special taxes of various kinds The argument in the tax woild today Is between these two systems of raising the public rev enue v The Kentucky system is the general property tax Our constitution binds Us to the levy of a uniform ad valorem tax on all property of every kind for all purposes If a piece of property located in the city Is taxed for one purpose it must be taxed for all If it is a propertyearning 6 per cent return to its owner it must pay the same tax as property earning 20 percent If it is a kind that can be re4 moved or hidden it is taxed the same as real estateif It can be found NoI disUnctJon ism nmtiY c ouit whatever all property must pay the same rate This sounds like a very fair system and in theory it is fairness itself But its operation In the opinion f those who have studied the question not in Kentucky onlybut in every state in the Union has not borne out the promise made for it The system has been abandoned In Pennsylvania Con necticut Delaware New Jersey Wisconsin Oregon and partially in a number of other states The rapid ten dency of the states is to get away from it as impossible and impracticable Nearly very state that has a tax commission has declared itself very frankly on this question A large number of states have within the last feV years apppofnted tax commissions to carefully study the methods of rais ing public evenues and almost in variably th reports of these commissions have denounced the general property tax system the system that we have in Kentucky as beinabsurd impossible of enforcement ami unjust in its operation Denounced by Supreme Court The supreme court of the United States leads the way in denouncing the system In its opinion in the case Qf the Pacific Express Co vs Seibert the court said This court has repeatedly laid down the doctrine that diversity of taxation both with respect to the amount Imposed and the various species of property selected either for bearing its burdens or being exempt from them Is not inconsistent with a perfect uniformity and equality of tax atlon in the proper sense of those terms and that a system which im poses the same tax upon every species of property irrespective of its nature or condition or class will be destruc tive of the principle of uniformityand equality in taxation and of a just adaptation of property to its burdeus An Illinois tax commission has de vaomIverslve to the public moralsa school for perjury promoted by law An Ohio tax commission has de nounced Itas imposing unjust bur dens on the man who scrupulously honest and Ohio Is engaged in an effort to get rid of it ANew Hampshire tax commission deplores its corrupting and demoral izing influence- A New York tax commission says It puts a premium on perjury and a penalty on integrity In an address to the general assem bly of Maryland Richard T Ely one of the greatest of our publicists said The one uniform on all property as an exclusive source of revenue Sever bas worked well in any modern community or state in the entire clv ilized world though it has been tried thousands of times and although all the mental resources of able men hay been employed to make it work well Prof E A Arfgell late tax commissioner of Ohio said in arrfartlcle InI the Independent The indirect results of the operation of the law have been to drive away large mases of capital from the state It estimated that at least 2000000000 has been lost to Cleveland alone and as

Case of the Walsh Estate In Lex Ington Points Out a Danger ous Result of Our Tax System The manner in which the tax sys tern of Kentucky may seriously affect its business interests was recently given a very striking demonstration in Lexington The estate of Mrs Clara Bell Walsh amounting to about 750000 had been for many years mana ed by the Security Trust company of Lexington as trustee A pe tition was filed recently in the Fay ette circuit court asking the court to terminate the trusteeship so that Mrs Walsh might put her property in the hands of a trust company in St Louis The Security Trust company which had been acting as trustee did not oppose this suit it being distinct ly stated in the petition of Mrs Walsh that the services of the trust company had been in every way satisfactory but that the taxes imposed upon her property were too burdensome The peculiar feature of the case lies in the fact that Mrs Walsh herself resides In St Louis and therefore claims that her personal property should not be taxed at Lexington in the hands of her trustee The court of appeals having held otherwise and Mrs Walsh not feeling justified in paying a tax rate of 270 on tho stocks bonds and other investments in the hands of the Kentucky trustee since she could not derive any possible good from the payment of this tax decided to remove the property to the state of her residence- A considerable part of the eshte was invested in local securities the bonds of local corporations and real estate mortgages This will mean that the money will gradually be with drawn from investment in these local securities and reinvested by the St Louis trustee in other securities thus constituting a loss of that much money to enterprises in and around Lexington and Fayette county It laeans just that much greater scarcity of needed capital The Lexington Herald has been with great energy and skill showing the result of this sort of taxation on the business interests of the state It points out among other things the In consistency in the decisions of our courts which hold that a man who lives In one Kentucky county and has intangible personal property such as stocks bonds or money in the hands of a trustee in another county of Ken lucky must pay the tax in the county If his residence and not in the county where the trustee resides but if the owner of the property moves entirely out of the state then he must pay a tax in the county where the trustee resides as well as pay the tax In the state where he takes up his new resi dence thus constituting double tax ation Consumed With Taxation- In her petition asking for the change in trusteeship Mrs Walsh says Plaintiffs desire If said Clara Bell Walsh by not entitled to a discharge of the trustee that there be a change in the per son of said trustee and if it can be done that the funds and property in trust be transferred to a trustee duly qualified under and resident in the state of Missouri where they have their home Plaintiffs state that the reasons why a change of trustee is desired do not in any manner relate to the conduct or fidelity of said trus tee but are on account of the heavy burdens of taxation imposed on said estate by reason of the residence of the trustee in a state and city different from the home of the beneficiary Court of Appeals Decision The Herald adds the following fact as to the case Under this decision of the court Mrs Walshs personal prop SecurityIrealizing that she a nonresident of the state could derive no possible benefit from taxes paid to the city on her personal property Mrs Walsh takes this means of getting possession of her property The removal of the estate to another state is a power ful argument against the wisdom of the system of taxation in force in Kentucky for though the Invest ments made by the trustee in local securities are so safe and highly regarded as to be retained yet when a reinvestment is made it is likely that a large portion of the funds will be invested elsewhere thus depriving this community and state of so much badly needed capital for its progress and development Poverty or Perjury A prominent attorney of this city In discussing before the Taxation Committee of the Kentucky senate in 1905 the tax system of our stateS de nounced our personal property tax as necessarily leading either to poverty or perjury We do not know whether any statistics on the subject are avail able but we think it a safe guess that at least threefourths of all the Intan gible personal property such as bonds notes and cash which Is as sessed for taxation in Kentucky is In the hands of fiduciaries Is It e felr and manly thing to place upon those least able to bear It nearly all the burden of such a tax WHY COLDS ARE- NGEROU if you would be
