Some Assessments This -Yea
''Made at 50 PerCent Less

' (Satan Burfcari et Tks Journal.!
Salem. Or., Nov. 11. Ths tentative
ratios prepared by th state tax com'
i'r mission.; upon., which ths assessment 'Of
property of publlo utUltles in the var
. lous countfee will be based for this
year show that moat of the county as
v sessors not only failed to assess the
- - property In their counties at cash value,
but actually aaessed at lower ratio
tnis year than-last year.
' -AH of the assessable property In the
t various counties, with the exception of
iiuuuo uuuue,, is assessea oy n coun
ty assessors. The publlo utilities are
assessed by toe state tax commission.
.. This commission ascertains the ratio of
valuation upon wMch the various coun
' tyv assessors, based1 their assessments,
, and then It fixes, the assessments of the
' publlo utilities In the- various counties
to correspond to the assessment of
other property; ; ?';;- i .f Nfc,
For instance, In Marlon county the
'. commission finds ; that property - was
assessed at 60 per' cent of Its 'cash
value, while In Folk It was assessed at
H Toer cent of Its cash' value. " Railroad
. property: running- tnrougn the two coun.
I Ties, tnsn' will be assessed ati 0 per
rent in Marlon and CI per cent in Polk.
In this 'way the railroad" company ; la
-. made .to pay Its taxes In ' each - county
n the same basis of valuation as other
, property holders.
. ,:""' it Assessors Sax.'
. Ths law requires that assessments
should be mads at cash value, but' coun.
ty assessors apparently laugh at the
- law. The assessments this year In all
I the counties average' less than J 13 per
, cent or .cash value, according: to ths
" ratios pfeoared bv the tax commission.
, while laet year It averaged more than
f per cent of ".cash 'value. ;g5Ty ;r"""r?
Jin 23 out of 84 counties, in' th stats
. ths . ratio of assessments Is less? 'this
year than. last. 1 If It were not for the
' decided increase ta the ratio in Clatsop,
: Columbia i.and coos, couhtles, the aver
age would have fallen several points.
In Multnomah county the tax coramls
. slon found that property was assessed
,: , win year at 68 per cent of IU cash
: value, while last year It was assessed at
15 per oenC This means that public
.. utilities will be assessed in that coun.
ty at 85 per cent of their ash value,
...:4 Instead of 95 per cent, or 100 per cent,
' which la the rata at which; the law says
all property should be assessed. 1
There ,1s a marked reduction In the
: v ratio of assessments this year In Hood
, ' River county, where the i rate dropped
rrom 71 per cent or cash value to 59
i per cent; In Klamath where ths rate
dropped from 72 to 58; In Lane, where
the rats dropped from 88 to 81 per cent
' v;. Ths lowest Tatlos are ,found in Tarn
hill, Washington and Crook,; whers the
; assessments were made at Jess than 50
per cent of cash, value.
Following Is a full list of the tenta.
tlvs ratios, which wilt bs considered at
the next meeting tf the tax commission
and then will be submitted to ths var
ious asaessors, compared with last
year's ratios:; f; '.r'
