LETTER OF SUBMITTAL

CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES,
JOINT COMMITTEE ON INTERNAL REVENUE TAXATION,

Washington, June 20, 1938.
Hon. PAT HARRISON,
Chairman, Joint Committee on Internal Revenue Taxation,

Washington, D. C. MY DEAR MR. CHAIRMAN : Submitted herewith is a compilation or report of the constitutional provisions of the several States as of June 30, 1937, directly relating to, or which affect, taxation therein. These provisions will show the powers conferred, as well as the limitations or restrictions placed, upon the various taxing authorities with respect to imposition of taxes for State and local purposes.

The report is alphabetically arranged by States, and the taxing provisions for each State are grouped under five major divisions or sections, with appropriate subsections:

A. Provisions having a general application.
B. Provisions specifically applicable to State taxes.
C. Provisions specifically applicable to county taxes.
D. Provisions specifically applicable to municipal taxes.

E. Provisions specifically applicable to political subdivisions and other taxing authorities.

The subsections under B, C, D, and E will show the several types of taxes specifically authorized to be imposed, as well as those prohibited or limited, by the States and political subdivisions, and will follow the same general order for each State.

In the foreword hereto will be found a collective discussion of some particular subjects of taxation which are common to a number of the States. This plan is adopted both for convenience and to avoid undue extension of the report. The subjects referred to are found in the table of contents.

Since the enactment of the Federal Social Security Act in 1935, a number of the States have deemed it necessary to amend their constitutions so as to be able to enact legislation to bring themselves within some of the benefit provisions of this act. These amendments will be found in an appendix to this report.

Acknowledgment is made to Mrs. Evelyne Turner of the staff of the committee for her valuable assistance in the preparation of this report. Respectfully submitted.

W. L. WALLACE, Attorney. Approved. L. H. PARKER, Chief of Staff.
