live on as their residence, which aids
the taxpayer as well as the County
Treasurer in making the collections
and preventing errors.
Every male citizen between the ages
of twenty-one and sixty years on the
first day of January, 1901, except those
incapable of earning a support from
being maimed, or from other causes,
shall be deemed taxable polls. This
does not apply to Confederate soldiers
over fifty years of age.
All the returns that are made after
the twentieth day of February will have
a penalty of 50 per cent. added thereto,
unless out of the county during the
time of listing. Not knowing the time
of listing is no excuse.
The assessing and collecting of taxes
is all done now in the same year, and
we have to aggregate the number and
value of all the horses, cattle, mules,
etc., and their value that there is in
the county, and have same on file in the
Comptroller General's office by the
thirtieth day of June each year. And
from that time to the first day of Octo
ber each year the Auditor and Treas
urer's duplicate has to be completed
and an abstract of the work in the
IComptroller'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 Octo
ber each year but work on the books
and blanks. .Therefore I hope that all
taxpayers will do me the favor of mak
ing their returns in time.
E. C. DICKSON,
Auditor Clarendon County.
