Scope and Content

This volume records property tax collections made in 1880 or later for amounts assessed in 1875 through 1879. Using an abstract roll book, the collector entered the individual's name; ward number or name; amount of tax assessed for each year from 1875 to 1879, inclusive; amount paid; date paid; and name of payer, sometimes with remarks. Not all assessments made in those years are recorded in this register: Apparently these are just for collections on past due accounts.

Arrangement

Geographically by ward, thereunder alphabetically by first letter of the individual's surname.
