CHANGE IN PAYING
OF TAXES PROPOSED.
OKLAHOMA CITY. Jan. 27.—A bill introduced by Senator James Draughon, which would change the entire system of pa\ing taxes is having rough sledding in the upper house despite the fact that it has the endorsement of many who have a study of the present cumbersome system. *
Under tile proposed measure much of the work now done by the county assessor would be shifted the
county clerk, who would be charged with the responsibility of preparing tax receipts in advance of payment. These receipts would be turned over to the taxpayer at the time he made payment and would simplify greatly the making of returns and the actual payment of the taxes.
Fred Parkinson, state examiner and Inspector, is an advocate of the proposed plan.
The bill now is in the hands of a special committee, having been recommitted by the senate. The committee is a friendly one, however, headed by Senator Draughon, and with the making of some changes suggested in the senate, may pass.
