Excerpt from In the Supreme Court of the State of Califoria: Savings and Loan Society V. Austin, and Bartlett, Doe, Et Al; V. Same; On Rehearing; Oral Argument of Creed Haymond, Esq., Of Counsel for the StateThe object of the actions, and of the various others depending upon the decision in these, was to test the validity of the revenue laws embodied in the Political Code, to determine whether, if valid, they applied to the City and County of San Francisco; and to dispose of the vexed question presented by taxation of solvent debts. After an elaborate argument on most of the questions involved, the Court filed an opinion determining:1. That the provisions of the Political Code, creating a State Board of Equalization, and defining its powers, are constitutional;2. That the provisions of the Political Code in relation to revenue, apply to the City and County of San Francisco;3. That solvent debts are not subject to taxation; and4. That a Court of equity will not interfere by injunction to restrain the sale of property for taxes.Owing to the importance of the case, the magnitude of the interests involved, a rehearing has been granted by the Court, and a reargument ordered upon all the questions presented by the record.The main features of the revenue system established by the Code are:A determination by the Legislature of the amount of money annually to be raised; an assessment of property at its full cash value by Assessors elected by the people of the county or district in which the property to be taxed is situated; the equalization of values, as between individuals, by a County Board, consisting of persons not elected by the people of the district in which the property is situated; the equalization of values, as between the counties, by a State Board not elected by the people; the fixing of a rate by the State Board of Equalization sufficient to raise the amount designated by the Legislature; and the collection of that rate by Collectors elected by the people of the district in which the property is situated.The provisions of the Constitution are, "That taxation shall be equal and uniform throughout the State. All property in this State shall be taxed in proportion to its value - to be ascertained as directed by law.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
