Excerpt from Some Probable Effects of the Exemption of Improvements From Taxation in the City of New York: A Report Prepared for the Committee on Taxation of the City of New York

During the course of the study it seemed desirable, in order to make the investigation even more representative and to furnish information in regard to the effects in particular sections in which various members of the committee were especially interested, to add several new Man hattan samples - the three tenement sections, the two apartment house sections and four new single-family dwelling sections. As a result, the criticism may be urged that the data presented is not well balanced, too much attention being devoted to the effects upon single-family houses in Manhattan. But this should mislead no one for definite statements are made as to the relative importance of this element.

The writer desires to acknowledge his indebtedness to Mr. Purdy not only for his aid in supervising the preparation of the assessment data but also for his unfailing kindness in answering the numberless queries which inevitably arise in prosecuting an investigation of this type.

Thanks are also due to Mr. Benjamin C. Marsh for exact information furnished in regard to the nature of the proposed plan.

Finally it must be confessed that it is with some trepidation that the study is submitted, because of the lack of the opportunity for ade quate checking. The mass of statistics submitted for analysis and the very limited time available made it necessary to delegate a substantial share of the arithmetical calculations. Doubtless errors will be found but the writer bespeaks the indulgence of his critics on the ground of the speed which was demanded both in writing and in printing.
