TABLE II.—METHODS OF SECURING LOCAL REVENUES FROM RAIL

ROAD TAXATION.

[blocks in formation]

1 There is a local tax on lands owned by railroads, such as have been subject to grant either by the state or by the United States.

2 Lands used by railroad companies but not used in any way for railroad purposes are assessed and taxed like the similar property of individuals.

Not including "distributable property." There are, however, local license taxes on railroads.
