Cedar Rapids: Aisle Bar, Downtown Street Floor Downstairs Budget Store Lindale Budget Shop Iowa City: Mall Shopping Cantor on Six at Sycamore Tax Mailing Property Tax Refunds; Deadline Near By Dale Kueter The first refund checks under Iowa’s new property tax relief program for the elderly were scheduled to be mailed late last week. Mike Cox, an administrator in the property tax division of the Iowa department of revenue in Des Moines, said some 35,000 claims have been filed so far. Wednesday, July 31, is the deadline for persons to file such claims on property taxes paid last year. As of Jan. I, Iowans 65 and older and those totally disabled became eligible for a refund on a portion of property tax paid on their owned residence or rent constituting property tax paid if total household income did not exceed $6,000. If two or more persons occupying a homestead qualify for the reimbursement, only one may file a claim. Also to qualify, the individual must have lived in Iowa all of 1973, and at the time the claim is made. The maximum refund is 95 permit of the actual, out-of-pocket taxes paid in 1973 (owed for the year 1972) for those with total income of less than $1,000. The refund percentage drops to a base of 25 percent for those with total income less than $6,000. Social security received must be included as income. The refund checks, which bv law must he issued by the state by Sept. 25, are being made out to both tho claimant and the county treasurer in home-owner cases, and just to the claimant in rent cases. Cox said the 35,000 claims filed represent slightly more than one-third of the estimated number who are eligible. The reason for the low number of claims filed, he explained, is that many of those eligible took the so-called double homestead credit on taxes paid last year. Home owners in Iowa are allowed a $62.50 homestead credit against property taxes, with an extra $62.50 allowed for those 65 and older. The latter credit was repealed when the new property tax relief program became effective Jan. I. Cox said his office has been I advising persons to file a claim under the new' law this: year only if tho relief provided is greater than the second $62.50 1 credit. If eligible persons received the equivalent in form of the additional homestead, there can be no reimbursement under the new law, Cox explained. Forms for the property tax rebate are available at all county assessor and treasurer offices; at Iowa department of revenue offices; and at the 19 city assessor offices in Iowa. The Iowa department of revenue office in thus area is at 736M> Eleventh street, Marion. 2 Are Promoted At Mt. Mercy Promotion appointments and leave of absence awards for Mt..

Gifts, Pledges Top Coe Goal of $4,000,000 The Priority Program, Coe college's three-year capital funds campaign, ended June 30 with gifts and pledges totaling $4,004,632 against total goals of $4,000,000, according to B. D. Silliman, Cedar Rapids, national campaign chairman. Launched in 1971, in response to the pledge of $1.5 million from the family of the late Sutherland C. Dows to erect a fine arts center, the Priority Program had two goals. The first was to raise $3,000,000 for the renovation of older campus buildings and for current operating budget support for the three were used for annual budget support and the renovation of Hickok hall, Kby firehouse, Greene hall, and portions of Sinclair auditorium and Voorhees hall. Payment Is Finn Tactic Of Inflation HELSINKI (UFO - The Finnish government gave forestry industry managers an ultimatum as they began their annual July holiday — hand over 300 million Finnmarks ($82 million) peacefully or the government would take it. A government spokesman! said, “We had to do something I publicly to show everyone that the government was doing something to fight inflation before everyone went on hob-1 day.” That brought the collective response from the forestry' jM-ople of “why us?” Finland has an annual 17 percent rate of inflation when five years ago it was between 2-3 percent. Last year the trade deficit was 1.995 billion marks! ($545 million) and preliminary! figures show it could double this year.
