More Than Last Tear.
As forecast a week ago, Portland
taxpayers next year will pay the
htehest tax they have ever been
assessed, according to calculations
based upon figures just given out
by the state tax commission. As
accurately as Assessor Welch could
determine the total levy for all
property embraced in school district

mills, assessed in 1920.
Assessor Welch did not receive
official notification from Salem
yesterday as to the amount of
money for state purposes Mult
nbmah county will be required to
raise in 1923. He based his calcu
lations on figures unofficially re
The state officials were reported
to have fixed Multnomah county's
share of the total funds to be raised
by taxation at 33.9628 per cent.
This was calculated by the assessor
to amount to $3, 000,713.71. To raise
- this amount a levy of 9.4 mills is
needed. The levy for state purposes
last year was 9.86 mills in Mult
Property outside school district
No. 1 in Multnomah county may-not
pay a higher tax this year than
heretofore. The increase within the
. district is due quite largely to a lift
of 3.9 mills in the levy for school
purposes. The levy for county pur
poses, just as in the case of the
state levy, was reduced under that
