Notice CKy Taxpayers.
Laurens, 8. C, Jan. 20tb. 1913.
Realizing the fact that a great num
ber of the taxpayers residing within
the city limits of the City of Laurens
do not understand fully the workings
of the two tax departments, county
And city; and In order that none need,
be ignorant of the facts, I take this op
portunity of explaining the facts in
During the months of January and
February of each year, all taxpayers
are required to make a return of their
property to the county auditor, and
during or about the same period each
year th~ city treasurer makes up hlaj
tax books from the books of the coun
ty auditor of the previous year. So
all parties who have returned prop
erty to the county auditor for the year
1912 taxes, now due and payable to
the county treasurer, will also be due
city taxes on this same return, paya
ble to th? city treasurer during Feb
ruary and March, 1913.
I have nothing, whatever, to do with
the city taxes, but am merely calling j
attention to this matter knowing that
some have already been put to extra
expense for the simple reason that
they did not know,
fc. ' ^ Very respectfully,
J. Waddy Thompson,
$166 Per Plate
