BIG TROUBLE IN
Immense Amount of Work for
Clerks in Preparing Tax
ROLLS MUST BE EXTENDED
TO VERY LAST FRACTION
State School Tax Need Not Be
as High as Was First '
Imposition of a tax levy of 9H mills
for the city of Portland will make an
Immense amount of work for the eoun
ty officials in figuring the aum to be
charged against the Individual taxpay
ers. In order to make the rolls balance,
the computation must be carried cut to
the last decimal point, so thst in many
Instances a petty tax against a small
piece of property will require four or
five figures beyond the decimal, an ex
ample being one for f 1.09(76, which will
be actually collected aa f 1.10, but which
must be carried out oy the deputies on
the rolls to the last figure. The depu
ties are groaning over the large amount
of time that will be required to extend
Another thing that will delay the final
extension ot the tax rolls Is the ne
cessity of waiting until the secretary
of state sends In the levy for the state
tax. The law requires that the state
levy be made upon the hasl of the aver
age expenditures In the various coun
ties during the five years preceding.
A new average must be made this year,
so that the secretary of state will be
compelled to await' receipt from tho
county clerks 'of their reports of ex
penditures for the year 1904 before the
state tax can be determined
It was discovered today that the state
school tax need not bn more' than 1.8
mills, instead or 5 mills, as has been
thought heretofore. Under the law, 'per
capita ralaed fbr state school must be
the same as In 190S, when the valua
tion waa ttl,OS,roo. This year the
valuation la 1(6.427.577. hence instead
of 6 mills, 4.8 mills will ufnce. In pre
vious estimates 5 mills has been thought
to be the needed levy for state school.
A curious feature of the school tax
levies Is that some districts under a B
mlli tax raise more money than they
know what to do with and several dla
trlcts have been compelled virtually to
make a preaent to the teachers or per
mit the money raised for the districts
to revert to the general fund to be
divided among other districts the fol
The per capita last year was $9,082
for 28.169 pupils and for this year there
With changes made according to the
lesser state school levy thought to be
needed and placing the city levy at the
correct figures, 9H mill nntead of 9.6.
