Will Be Hlaker.
Omaha property owners will thla year
pay a tax of very nearly 10 cents on the
dollar, flirured on tha assessed valuation of
one-fifth of tha actual valuation.
Thla Inoludsa all taxes atate, county,
city school and the Water board.
Tha total tax, based on the assessed val-
uatlon not yet passed upon by the State
Board of Equalisation amounts to M l mills.
The city school and Water board tax
Is based on this year's valuation; the state
and county tax on lust year"s valuation.
The county commissioners have not yet
made the appropriation for this year, whloh
precludes exact figuring, aa on the city
and school tax. The county valuation has
been Increased a little over 11,000,000, but
the appropriations will be higher and It
Is believed that the tax this year will be
about the same as last.
The levy of 912 mills Is subdivided Into
several departments of government, as fol
City general fund 38.4
City sinking fund M
City Water board fund 13.4
City school fund 16. 0
Ktate general fund 4.3
Male Univ. and redemption funds 2.0
County general fund 9.0
County other funds 6.6
Total levy 98.2
The total county valuation last year, as
returned by the state board after equaliza
tion, was $.14,448,060. The valuation this year,
as aent to the State Hoard of Equalization,
but not yet equalized and returned, is
135.723,163, or an Increase of $1,276,003.
On this valuation of last year state and
county taxea amounting to 1718,239.72 were
raised with a levy of 20.8 mills. In addi
tion to thla sum $14,682.44 was raised for
school and village purposes, but for these
latter Item Omaha taxpayers paid no tax.
Last Year's Revenue.
The state tax of 6.3 mills last year raised
$216,300.37 for three separate funds as fol
lows: General fund, 4.3 mills, $146,404.26;
university fund, 1 mill, $34,448.06; redemp
tion fund, 1 mill, 14.449.06. There will be
no redemption fund this year, but aside
from that the tax, as estimated, will be as
high If not higher.
The county tax of 20.8 mills last year
raised $502,939.36 for five funds, a sixth
fund, the poll tax, being raised by direct
tax Instead of a mill levy. These funds
were divided as follows: General fund,
mills, $310,032.54; road. 2.1 mills, $72,34092;
bridge. 1.5 mills, $.',1,672.09; sinking fund.
1.7 mills. $8,50.1.70; soldiers' relief fund, .2
of a mill, $6,889.60; poll tax, $3,442.50.
In the city the general fund levy of 38.4
mills will raise $1,000,000, the sinking fund
levy of 9.8 mills will raise $250,000, the water
board levy of 13.4 mills will raise $235,000,
and the school board levy of 16 mills will
Mayor Dahlman will tonight veto the city
appropriation calling for a levy to raise $1,
000,000 for general fund purposes, and will
ask the council to cut this to $950,000. If
the council sustains the mayor, about 2
mlllB will be cut from the olty levy. The
mayor believes the cut can be made In
consideration of mtmey to be received
from the public service franchlsed cor
porations under the operation of the pro
posed occupation tax ordinances which
are expected to be passed by the council
and In force by September 1 of this year.
