STATISTICS OF THE STATE.
Direct and Indirect Taxes of the State.- Income from Indirect Taxes.- The Tonnage of the Canals.
The State tax rate for the fiscal year ending September 30, 1897, which was imposed by the Legislature of 1896, was 2.69 mills on the dollar. yielded the following sums: Tax of 93-100 mill for
school purposes... Tax of 76-100 mill for canal and general purposes.
Tax of 1 mill for State care of the insane...
Encouraged by the success of this $4,062,903 00 tax the State, in 1886, passed a law taxing inheritances, which up to the present time has netted the State the 3,320,221 81 following-named amounts:
1886.. 4,368,712 90 1887.. 1888.. $11,751,837 71 1889..
1,158,978 41 1880, Corporation tax..
1884, Corporation tax.. $1,603,612 75 1893, Corporation tax.. $1,668,911 62
From 1895 the "Bankers' tax" was not separately reported in the Comptroller's reports, but was included in the report of the receipts of the "Corporation tax." That fact must be considered in the report of the receipts from indirect taxes for 1895 and 1896 which follows:
1895, Corporation tax.. $1,823,039 16
The direct State taxes since 1880 would, of course, have been far greater but for the indirect taxes; and especially so since State commissions were created which imposed a large tax upon the State treasury for their support. But nevertheless a large proportion of the money derived from the $2.551,064 39 indirect taxes remained to pay the appropriations of the Legislature. The $1.350,238 53 record of the two since 1880 has been 890.267 54 as follows:
