Annual Report of the Commissioner of Corporations and Taxation: For the Year Ending November 30, 1922 (Classic Reprint)
In the report of the Department of Corporations and Tax ation for the year ending November 30, 1921, a summary was given of the various activities of the Department, together with a short account of taxation in Massachusetts. The various sources of revenue, amounts, and distribution for this year will be found in tables following. In the consideration of this report, reference should be made to Public Docu ment No. 19 and Public Document no. 79, both of which reports are made by this Department and contain valuable information for those seeking information in regard to taxation and municipal receipts and expenditures. Under the various division headings of this report will be found an account of the activities of the Department for the year.
The major portion of our funds for governmental purposes comes from taxes levied on land, buildings and tangible per sonal property situated in our various cities and towns and assessed by the local boards of assessors. It is the purpose of the Department to be of every assistance to the local boards, and in accordance with that purpose a card has been issued showing how the tax rate is to be determined. While the tax rate is not conclusive as to the real condition of a municipality, in comparing it with others it is as good a guide as we now have. With full and fair cash valuations in each com munity, it would be nearly conclusive as a method of com parison. A reprint of the card and letter issued for the local boards of assessors, to assist them in determining the tax rate, is printed in this report. Following that there is printed a list of the cities and towns with their tax rates for 1921 and 1922.
The report of this Department was adopted by the General Court, and a new equalization and apportionment was fixed by chapter 381 Of the Acts of 1922, which will govern the State tax payments for the years 1922, 1923 and 1924. It is believed that this valuation approximates as fair an equaliza tion and apportio'nment as has yet been made.
