THE PROPERTY TAX.
When the property tax assessor’s valuations in Hawke’s Bay were sent in they showed large reductions, and the department appointed a secret committee ox revisors in each district. This was the only property district in which such a course was adopted. The revisers largely increased the valuation. This caused a large number of objections, and great interest has been taken in the sittings of the Board of Reviewers. Several attempts were made to get the names of the revisors, but Mr Crombie, Deputy-Commissioner, declined to give them up, notwithstanding the protests of objectors that they were thereby placed at a great disadvantage. Many objections were sustained, but many failed. The net result has been an increase in the Hawke’s Bay assessor’s values, which have been raised L 26,928.
