THE TAXATION OF MOTOR VEHICLES IN 1932

MOTOR VEHICLE OWNERS IN THE UNITED STATES PAID APPROXIMATELY ONE BILLION DOLLARS IN 1932 FOR THE RIGHT TO OPERATE ON THE PUBLIC HIGHWAYS. THIS SUM CAME DIRECTLY FROM THE POCKETS OF MOTOR VEHICLE OWNERS IN THE FORM OF REGISTRATION FEES, GASOLINE TAXES, MILEAGE AND TON-MILE TAXES, RECEIPTS, TAXES, PERSONAL PROPERTY TAXES, SPECIAL FEES IMPOSED BY COUNTIES AND MUNICIPALITIES AND OTHER LESSER UNITS OF GOVERNMENT, AND MANY OTHER DIRECT IMPOSTS. IN AN ENDEAVOR TO DETERMINE FOR THE FIRST TIME THE NUMBER AND AMOUNT OF ALL THE VARIOUS KINDS OF TAXES AND FEES, AND HOW THEY WERE IMPOSED UPON THE NUMEROUS DIFFERENT TYPES OF VEHICLES, A SPECIAL INQUIRY WAS UNDERTAKEN BY THE U. S. BUREAU OF PUBLIC ROADS DURING THE SUMMER OF 1933, COVERING ALL OF THE 48 STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. A PRELIMINARY REPORT IS GIVEN. /AUTHOR/
