"The assessment lists are arranged in four basic categories: (1) monthly, (2) annual, (3) special, and (4) miscellaneous. Each category is arranged by collection district and thereunder chronologically"--Introd.

"The entries in the monthly lists are for taxes paid or collected on a monthly basis; those in the annual lists, for taxes paid or collected annually. The special lists augment incomplete monthly and annual lists. They also cover those taxes that were labeled by the assessors as 'special,' for example, the special income tax. The miscellaneous category cover taxes that cannot be identified by type or particular district or date"--Introd.

"The Internal Revenue Act of July 1, 1862, was intended 'to provide internal revenue to support the government and to pay interest on the public debt.' Monthly specific and ad valorem duties were placed on manufactures, articles, and products ranging from ale to zinc. Monthly taxes were levied on the gross receipts of transportation companies; on interest paid on bonds; on surplus funds accumulated by financial institutions and insurance companies; on gross receipts from auction sales; and on cattle, hogs, and sheep slaughtered for sale. Gross receipts of newspapers from advertising were subject to a quarterly tax. Annual licenses were required for all trades and occupations, and annual duties were placed on carriages, yachts, billiard tables, and plate"--Introd.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.

Errors?

Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
