That is the decree issued by county treasurer John m. Carls to James Higgins and w. J. Davis. Special deputies assigned to make collections. For More than a year the county has had two special deputies working out of the office of its j treasurer bringing in As much of the unpaid amounts As possible. In the last year a total of $22,718.65 was gathered in by the deputies of which amount $2,852.61 was collected thus far this year. In previous years before personal property taxes became delinquent the county treasurer mailed statements to those in arrears. Collecting As much As possible in that manner. Next the delinquent Roll was turned Over to the sheriff who mad a further collections. Finally names of those i w to had not paid were referred 1 to the District attorney s office. Letters sent out by that office i brought in additional amounts and finally Quot a Hen All efforts to clean up the entire list had been exhausted the amounts still unpaid were charged Back to the City. Can employ deputies. Under an arrangement Between a committee from the City Council i and one from the county Board of j supervisors the county treasurer was authorized to employ two j special deputies to collect the j amounts remaining unpaid. This has proven to be a Good move on the part of both county and City i As is seen by the Large amounts collected Vrh Tell otherwise would have remained delinquent with j Little or no Effort being made on a the part of those indebted to Tho county to make settlements. When it developed that ret Tain persons were making claims that they Are released from delinquent personal property taxes assessed prior to the Date of their discharge in bankruptcy. County treasurer Carls obtained an opinion from Oscar m. Edwards assistant District attorney. This cited the Law which reveals clearly that such discharge does not release one from paying delinquent personal property taxes. Agreeable plan. Both Deputy Higgins and Davis Are working under a plan which is proving highly agreeable to those delinquent in their taxes. In their efforts to collect the amounts due. The deputies have made it As convenient As possible by arranging a partial payment scheme. A when we find residents unable to pay the entire amount due. We permit them to make their own said Deputy Higgins. A a whether a person pays $2 or $109 is satisfactory to us so Long As regular payments Are mad until the entire amount due has Bern this plan is entirely satisfactory. Deputy Higgins explained and under it much More rash is being received than otherwise would be paid. Fixed times for payments Are agreed upon and this expedite the work of the deputies to a great degree a it has frequently happened said Deputy Higgins a that when we approach a person who is delinquent and we inform him How much he is owing the county he will reply that he has t got that much Money and knows of no Way to pay it. When it is explained that instalment payments can be made of whatever amounts he is Abel to pay an agreement is readily entered into and stated periods for payments a agreed upon Bromide harmful. Pointing out that the fellow who Ges in bad is the one w to is Long on promises Deputy Higgins snowed that eventually such a Parson receives not a from the District attorney s office demanding payment. So h person. Higgins said Aglee to pay on a certain Day. That Day arrives and sin other ext use is forthcoming. After several of such disappointing trips the deputies s a that it is the purpose to make no Effort to pay the county the amount owing to it and accordingly place the account to oneside later to he referred to the Quot District attorney. Suit will he started by him and judgment taken for the amount due. In most eases the deputies Are treated cordially but occasionally it happens that a person approached grows hard boiled. In one instance one of the deputies was ordered out of an office by an irate resident whose tax was delinquent. Next Day the same person on being called on the second time apologized declaring he did not understand the Deputy was duly authorized by the county treasurer to make collections. Arrangements were then made for partial payments. When a question is raised regarding the Deputy a right to make collections a letter is exhibited front the county treasurer showing that both Higgins and Davis were duly delegated by that official and were empowered to make collections. That invariably satisfies those raising Anc question regarding the Deputy s authority. Save on interest. By squaring their account As soon As possible those who Are delinquent sate themselves a Large amount in interest. For la years prior to 1932 the role was 12 per cent a year but in 1932, 1933 and 1 93 4 Hie rate was reduced by Law to s per cent. Total delinquencies for Hie lost several years according to record in the county treasurer s offi and in the county clerk s offi it e. Are As follows $29,835 in 1 934 $34,977 in 1933 $52,798 in 1 932 $46,213 in 1931 $46,126 in 1930 and $71,269 in 1 929. Approximately one half of the outstanding amount in 1933 was collected. Both deputies have been working in the City of Racine since the first of the year. With the arrival of settled weather they will atari their work in the villages Ami towns of the county by setting a special Day for such work.
