the state tax commission has started its work of investigating the tax Able values of the lands and other real and personal property in the Iron mining counties of the upper Penin Iron Dickinson and go Gebic when the reviews of mine assessments were held by the tax commission in the counties named Early in october local assessing tracers were told that unless they put the other property on the tax Rolls next Spring at its True Cash value and and de to the Rolls the Large amount of property that has never been assessed at All that the commission would make new assessment Rolls for every City and township in the counties mentioned it now appears that the state tax commission is not going to wait to see what action local assess ing officers take but will look into taxable values on its own account the plans of the state tax commis Sion Are thus outlined in an article published in the last saturdays is sue of the daily mining journal mar Quette As e h Shields the state tax com missioner predicted would be done when he visited Marquette in the course of his trip to the upper Penin Sula to review the work of expert Fin Lay in valuing the Iron mines the commission is talking Steps to value the general property of the Iron coun ies with the purpose of putting it n the same basis of valuation As the dining property Field agent Mcmaff representing the commission is now n the upper Peninsula preparing for his work he has been in Marquette county the past few Days looking the ground Over and he has held Consul actions with numerous men who Are informed concerning values the Volc in Marquette county will begin m mediately and will Start in Powell township where the wild lands Are Aid to have More value than similar ands in any other township in the county it was in this township that he Marquette men who looked into he question of general values in the a Monty in connection with the meet no of the county equalization a few weeks ago were convinced that some f the worst cases of undervaluation n the county would be found the tax commission will follow the same Rule in valuing the general property in Marquette Iron Dickin son and go Gebic counties that it Fol owed in valuing the raining property that is it will find and Lix to the Best of its ability the True Cash value this s the Only Rule that the commission is for this work the result is bound to be a Large in crease in the total of the tax Rolls for All the counties As general property s now valued at much Les than Cash value when the mining men had their hearing before commissioner Shields they made the assertion that eneral property in the mining town ships of Marquette county was valued at not More than on third of its True value it is not to be anticipated that put Ting the Iron counties up to their True value will work to their injury How ver in the apportionment of state taxes because the equalization arrived at by the state Board a few weeks ago will stand for three years the Reval nation will work out to relieve the mining companies from bearing an unfair share of the tax Burden be cause they will have to pay consider ably less taxes when general property is put up where it belongs the reassessment of the Iron coun ties will be a work of great magnitude one of the largest tasks that the state tax commission has Ever entered on and it will be Well into next year be fore it can be completed the Fina step in the work will be the holding of Public reviews such As were Hel Early in the fall in Alpena county i is the expectation of the tax commis Sion that before another state equalization is held practically the entire state will be placed on a Cash basis if in the meantime the entire system of state taxation is not changed for go Gelics schools superintendent of
