The county board of equalisa
tion was organized yesterday as
provided by law. ' Petitions for
change in assessment may come
before It for a period of 15 days
after which the board will take
them under consideration and
make Its decision. As provided
by law. members are County
Judge Siegmund, Assessor Oscar
Steelhammer and County Clerk
Boyer. A number of written peti
tions have been presented asking
for tax readjustment but the total
Is no measurably larger than In
former. years. '.;.
;; Because of the care with which
assessments ; are made! there has
never been ! extended request in
this county for tax readjustment.
The board I indicated : yesterday
that one situation faced this year
was the problem of lower assess
ment' because of the' exemption
of war veterans property. Under
a law passed In the 1931 session
of the legislature, veterans of all
wars adjudged to be 40 per cent
Or more incapacitated receive a
flat assessment offset of $1000.
