Washington Law Review


Of the fourteen acts which relate directly to taxation four are primarily administrative in nature, one repeals an obsolete statute relating to property tax rebates, one provides additional exemptions from county real estate sales tax, and one provides more favorable treatment with respect to the taxation of extractors of copra. Of somewhat broader significance from a fiscal standpoint is the act providing for reallocation of property tax millages under the forty-mill limitation law, and the act relating to the number of electors required in special school elections held prior to November, 1954. The latter act has been the subject of recent press comment and litigation has been threatened because of uncertainty as to which "general election" is meant under the language of the act.
