U.S. Supreme Court

American Mfg. Co. v. St. Louis, 250 U.S. 459 (1919)

American Manufacturing Company v. St. Louis

No. 365

Argued April 30, 1919

Decided June 9, 1919

250 U.S. 459


The question whether a state law or tax deprives a party of constitutional rights depends upon its practical operation and effect. P. 250 U. S. 462.

An ordinance conditioning the right to manufacture goods within a city upon the payment of a license tax computed upon the amount of the sales of the goods so manufactured held a tax upon the business of manufacture within the city, and not a tax upon the sales. P. 250 U. S. 463.

Such a tax, when computed upon the sales of goods manufactured in the city under the license but removed and afterwards sold beyond the state does not impose a direct burden on interstate commerce or, when the manufacturer is a sister-state corporation, deprive it of property without due process. P. 250 U. S. 464.

198 S.W. 1183 affirmed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrary
