A look back

By Staff
Researched by Dr. Bill Stewart
Taxes are once again very much in the news. What the left hand gives, the right may take way.
2003-May 29, A $1,000 tax is currently levied on each Hartselle saloon. The motivation is not to increase town revenues but to drive these establishments out of business.
1964-May 30, Dr. John Thomas Burch died at age 88. He served as Morgan County tax assessor for 18 years.
1906-May 31, The common schools will undoubtedly suffer since a large number of prospective voters did not pay their poll taxes during the time set aside for doing this. There are over 4,000 registered voters in Morgan County and of this number about 2,500 are subject to the poll tax. All proceeds go to schools.
1933-June 1, Today is the last day for persons subject to the new state income tax to file their returns without penalty for delinquency.
1886-June 2, J. T. Wiggins, tax collector of Morgan County, has made some progress in getting delinquents subject to county property taxes to pay what they owe.
1930-June 2, State agents will begin a routine check of the tax records of Collector Hodges Crow of Morgan County soon. It is expected that, Mr. Crow will receive a glowing report.
1920-June 3, The new dog law, on the books since March 1, requires owners to pay a fee and tag their animals. Law enforcement officers are charged with killing all untagged dogs, and a penalty is imposed for failure to perform that duty.
1918-June 3, Morgan County will vote August 13 on the three-mill property tax for schools. The county board of education has appointed A. E. Jackson, R. L. Quinn, and R. A. Summerford to lead the school tax campaign. This will be Morgan County's second attempt to increase the school fund, the former effort being defeated.
1927-June 4, Motorists are gradually getting used to the two-cent gasoline tax which has now been effect for about six months. Half of the tax is earmarked for county use in the improvement of roads and bridges.
