County Assessed Valuation Is Sl,449 Per Man NEW YORK -- For the first time since 1957. the Government has made a full-scale survey of nroDerty tax values in Mason County and in other areas throug:hout the country. It was undertaken ly the Cen- sus Bureau in connection with its 1962 Census of Governments. As a result, data is now available on the 67,449,000 pieces of real and personal property that are carried on local tax rolls in the United States. In Mason County, it shows, the gross value of local property came to $24,494,000. as compared with the total on the books in 1957, $17,077,000. Deducting the portion that was tax-exenmt locally, the net amount was $23,767.000. This constituted the tax base upon which local tax rates were applied, but it was not the full market value of the property in- volved. Normally, property is as- sessed for tax purposes at farbe- low its actual value. THE LOCAL assessment roll, which was the basis for tax pay- ments due in 1962, consisted of real property in the sum of $18,- 929,000 and" personal property of $4.838.000. . The survey shows that the pro- perty tax continues to be the ma- jor source of local government fi- nancing, accounting for nearly 90 percent of all revenue at that le- Vel. It lists $367 billion in property available for taxation by local aencies. Not included in this to- tal are buildings bclonging to hos- pitals, schools and churches with tax-exempt status and public buildings. Taxable property values have soared nearly 30 percent since the 1957 survey, the Census Bureau reports. This rapid growth is at- tributed in large part to new con- struction in the period, both resi- dential and commercial To some degree, also, it is due to higher assessing of property. MORE THAN HALF of the 67 million pieces of real estate list- ed on local assessment rolls are non-farm, residential properties. Another one-fifth are acreage and farm plots. Vacant lots, which number 13 million, are nearly one- third as numerous as residential properties. What does :Mason County's as- sessment roll represent in terms of local population ? In effect, it m equivalent to $1,449 in taxa- ble property for every man, wo- man and child in the county. This is more than is liste@ for most places in the State of Wa- perShingtn'capita.the average being $1,125 State Collects s687Hillion In Tax In B" " leflglgN Collections by the Stale Tax Commissim] exceeded $687.000.000 last biennium according" to the Commission's 19th biennial report submitted today to Governor Al- bert D. Rosellini. Copies of the 64-page booklet were distributed to legislators. For the two-year period end- ink June 30. 1962, total Tax Com- mission revenue was $687.589.831, an increase of 13.6 per cent over the preceding biennium. Collection costs were low. less than 90 cents per $100 in revenue. During the biennium the state two-nlill property tax. levied by the Tax Commission in its ca- pacity as the State Board of Equalization and collected by the State Treasurer. produced $21.- 853. 520. Commenting on its audit pro- gram. the Commission reported that despite limitations on the size of its audit staff, total audit re- covery was nearly $14,500,000. An- nual recovery per auditor aver- aged about $90,000 and for each dollar of salary and expense that was a return of $14 to the state. The Collection Section in fiscal 1962 collected 6.272. warrants on past due accounts as compared with 4.567 in 1960 and 4.911 in 1961. Income Tax Refund Gan Be in Bonds If yml're in line for  reftlnd oll your 1962 Federal incortte tax re- turn. County Sa\\;'ins Bonds chail.nl:/ll L. A. CH'lson }13s a word for yoll. Two words, ill fact: Buy Bonds. This year for the first time Carlson points out. Uncle Sam is makin K it possible for you lo take refund in Series E Savings Bonds by the simple expedient of putting an "X" in the apln'opriatc box on the tax form. Last year some 40 million tax- paycrs received cash refunds on their la.xes. Judging from samp- lings of OlmUOn. a tot of them would have preferred to gel their money m Savings Bonds it" tbcy'd had the chance. Bond Chairman Carlson \\;\'ants to make sure ally of them who live in Mason County know they now have that chance. The way the bond option works is simple. Thn Treasury will issue the smallest possible number ot E Bonds of the largest possible denominations to covet, the am- ount of the refund. If there's any- thing left over, a check will be written for the balance. Details are given in the instructions. What about joint returns ? Carl- son gave us the answer to that one too.
