The gross sales for 1948 tags hit

jNot To Start
Meets Mon.
Tax listing in Haywood will not
start until after the meeting of the
Board of Commissioners here Mon
day. The board will then decide
whether to call for a revaluation
of property, make a horizonal
raise, or keep the present valua
lion on property. The Board will
also discuss the possibility of a
cut, ic was learned from George
A Brown, Jr., county manager and
chairman of the board.
The Board in discussing the pos
sibility of a revaluation, met with
Ihe problem of getting qualified
people to handle the work. Most
qualified people are too busy. Ihe
board has learned In fact, the
usual large number of applications
from people to serve as just listers
are lacking this year.
Mr Brown pointed out that so
far the board has only received
appl ications from two people in the
entire county. Usually by this time
the board is loaded down witli ap
plications for the places in each
township.
The regular schedule for tax
listing begins on January firs!, but
due to the lack of listers, and (lend
ing the decision on a revaluation,
llie listing will begin a Utile late.
To have a revaluation at this
time means that appraisers will
have lo check each parcel of land
ind each building and pit! them
down for a current appraisal This
procedure takes time, and rill cost
the county about $12,000, it wa
est intellect
In the meantime. Ihe onmiin.;.
soncrs are Irving lo deride on the
best course, and on Mond will
come to a definite decision.
