Salem. More than $1,500,000 has
been lopped off from the tax levy for
the year 1922, based on the tax rolls
for the year 1921, when compared with
the levy of a year ago, according to
announcement made at the offices of
the state tax commission here Satur
day. Most of the reduction affects
Multnomah county. A report Issued
by the state tax commissioner showed
that the total tax levy for 1922, based
on the tax rolls for 1921, Is $40,401
709.21, as against $41,117,367.75 a year
ago. The state tax, as computed by
the state tax commissioner for the
year 1922, is $9,379,289.11, as against
$9,493,105.22 a year ago. The county
hevy this year aggregates $3,977,473.91,
while this levy last year totalled $5
360,665.25. The material reduction in
the county levy this year, It was ex
plained, is due to the fact that in
computing last year's levy bond In
terest and redemptions were included
in this classification.
