Abstract

A discussion of the subject of coal mine taxation seems timely and should be of much practical interest in view of the present depressed condition in which the coal industry finds itself. Coal production has developed into one of Utah's most important industries from the standpoint of quantity, value, and associated employment. It has become vital to the economic stability and security of the state. Coal producers, however, have encountered serious economic difficulties during the past two decades. The task of building up profitable industrial activities is one thing, the job of protecting and maintaining them is another matter.
