A History of the Tax System in Kansas, 1861-1937
Posted on April 19, 2017 at 4:34 PM by Tim Volpert
Just in time for tax season!
We've just added a very cool publication to the State Library of Kansas' KGI Online Library. Published in 1937, the title is: "Summary history of Kansas finance : development of the tax system, with synopsis of receipts, expenditures, and indebtedness, for the state and local governments : research report."
A SUMMARY HISTORY OF KANSAS FINANCE (1861-1937)
The report was issued by the Kansas Legislative Council's Research Department, and in the foreword the authors state, "Attempt is made herein to cover certain essentials of Kansas financial history from statehood (1861) through the fiscal year 1937."
The book covers such topics as: Territorial finances -- II. Development of the Kansas tax system -- III. Assessed valuation and state tax levies -- IV. Taxes levied on general property -- V. Receipts to state government -- VI. Expenditures of state government, 1900-1936 -- VII. State indebtedness -- VIII. Local receipts, expenditures and indebtedness.
It sounds a bit dry, but this is a history of our state's tax structure, 1861-1937 and where the money went. Nothing dry about that!
