Laurel Farmer Sees Big Tax
Increase Under Prohibition
The following statement by C. D. Haskell, Laurel,
Nebraska, farmer and vice-president of the Nebras
ka Federation of County Taxpayers Leagues, mem
ber of the Committee of Men and Women Against
Prohibition, was given to the newspapers of the
state ^September 14, 1944:
Every branch of state and local government prob
ably would suffer if we remove the alcoholic beverage
industry* from the tax rolls. Tax authorities estimate
that Nebraska collects about $3,500,000 annually from
beer and liquors in state, county and local taxes and
Not only would the state lose this annual revenue,
which would have to be made up from other sources,
but additional hundreds of thousands of dollars would
be needed to set up and maintain some kind of enforce
ment organization throughout the state. Government
costs in every county, village and city would probably;
The state liquor tax paid $2,216,173.26 for Old Age
Assistance and other functions of the State Assistance
Department in the fiscal year 1942*1943. I know the
people would not want to do away with state assist
ance, so this revenue would have to be replaced, which’
would mean an increased property tax or some new.
form of tax, such as a sales tax or income tax.
Many people do not realize the importance of the
liquor tax revenues to the state. Many of us forget
that the Federal Government matches the spirituous
beverage taxes used for old age assistance, which
means that the actual loss to Nebraska would run
around $4,500,000 if the tax were not replaced. It
would have to be replaced, no question about it. And
this means higher taxes, new taxes for everyone.
Another thing few people realize: County, city and
other governmental subdivisions of the state also col
lect large amounts of revenue from the industry, in
addition to the direct beverage tax collected by the
state government. Approximately $500,000 yearly is
paid to counties and cities in license fees and occupa
tional taxes bv retail dealers.
To all of these revenues must be added real estate,
personal and miscellaneous taxes paid by brewers,
distributors, dealers, etc. This makes a total in the
neighborhood of $3,500,000 a year. This is not “pin
money.” It’s big money to me, anyway.
I do not believe the people of Nebraska want to
deliberately vote a big increase in general taxes on
themselves. But that is just what they will be doing
if they go back to prohibition in November. History
plainly shows prohibition is not enforceable and
doesn’t prohibit anyway, and would require hundreds
of thousands of dollars to make even a show at
