Building and Loan
,., Taxes Are Explained
Lincoln, April 26.(Special.)
W. H. Osborne, state tax commis
sioner, met representatives of build
ing and loan associations here and
.explained how the new taxation bill
affects their institutions.
The representatives wanted to
know .whether their shares of stock
would be taxed in the hands of hold
ers or returned as. a whole by the
associations and deductions allowed
therefrom for real estate otherwise
assessed, on which the building and
loan funds are loaned.
The new revenue law provides that
building and loan stock shall be as
sessed to those owning if, but the
spokesman for the associations
claims this is contradictory to the
constitutional provision which re
quires all property of the same class
to be taxed in a uniform' manner.
It is contended that other corpor
ations are permitted to make re
turns on a different basis from build
ing and loan associations, and that
the constitution is thereby violated.
Assistant Attorney General Mason
Wheeler was present at the request
of Osborne to consider legal points
raised by the building and loan as
sociation people and advise him on
what action to take.
