A good way for the taxpayer who
has much property to return, is to
make a memorandum of theinumber
of horses, cattle, mules, sheep and
goats, hogs, watches, organs and pi
anos, buggies, wagons and carriages,
dogs, merchandise, machinery, mon
evs, notes and accounts, (above in
d'btedness) furniture, &c., which will
save the taxpayer time, and enable
the assessor to progress in the work.
Taxpayers return what they own
on the first day of January, 1894.
All property, both real, and per- -
sonal, must be returned this year.
Assessors and taxpayers will enter
the first given name of the taxpayer
in full, also make a separate return '
for each party for the township the
property is in, and where the tax
payer owns realty, to insert the post
office as'their place ofesidence, and
those who only ftn personal prp
erty, to give-tke party's .name wh.o
owns the land they live on as their
residence, which aids the taxpayer as
well as the county treasurer in mak
ing the collections and preventing
Every male citizen between the
ages of twenty-one and fifty years on
the first day of January, 1894, except
those incapable of earning a support
from being maimed,'or from other
causes, shall be deemed taxable polls8.
Air returns that are made after the
twentieth day of February will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added there
to, unless prevented by sickness or
out of the county during the time of
listing. Not knowing the time of
listing is no excuse- And all owners
of real estate, might do their tenants,
who cannot read, or take a news
paper, a great favor by making their
returns or telling them the time of
listing, and that if they fail to make
their returns in time that the valua
tion has to be increased 50 per cent.
unless they have a good excuse.
The assessing and collecting of
taxes is all done now in the same year,
and we have to aggregate the num
ber and value of all the horses, cattle,
mules, &c., as well as the acres of
land, lots and buildings, and their
value, that there is in the county,
and have same on file in'the- Comp
Itroller General's office by the;- thir-- --
tieth day of June each year. An'd
from that time to the first day of Oc
tober each year the auditor's and
treasurer's duplicate has to be comn
Ipleted and an abstract of the work
in the Comptroller's office by that
time, which will show at a glance
that the auditor has no time to- take
in returns or do anything else much,
between the first day of March and
the first day of October each year,
but work on the books and blanks.
Therefore I hope that all taxpayers
w 11 do us the favor of making thei
returns in time.
