Description

Cartoon depicts an angry customer, "No. Dak. Taxpayer," confronting a store owner regarding the total on the cash register, "Use Tax In." The store owner points to several portraits on the wall, "Senate," "House," North Dakota Governor William L. "Guy," Robert P. "McCarney," and North Dakota Tax Commissioner Lloyd "Omdahl," which are pointing at each other. As of July 1, the 2 1/4% Use Tax replaced the 2 1/4% Sales Tax. Because of Robert P. McCarney's tax referral petition against the 1965 Legislature's Democratic Tax Proposal the Use Tax will stay in effect until the September 21 election, but will not be effective until October 21, 1965.
