NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS I desire to call the attention of the tax-payeers of Bingham county to the following amendments to the revised codes of Idaho as passed by the ex traordinary session of the State Leg islature, convened in the year 1912 pertaining to the revenue laws. Section 1734 of the session laws as amended provides that taxes assessed j and levied under the provisions of this chapter shall be due and payable on and after the first Monday in December in each year, and if not paid on or before the first Monday in January next following, the same be comes delinquent and a penelty of 10 per cent of the total amount of the tax and such costs of the delinquency that may be hereinafter provided, shall immediately attach thereto and must be extended .in the appropriate column of the tax roll- The same section provides that when ever the aggregate taxes payable by and due from any one person, firm or corpor ation exceed the sum of $20 for any year, one-half of such taxes may be paid on or before the first Monday of January and the remaining one-half of such tax may be paid on or before the first Monday of the following July If such taxes are not paid as above provided in the first instance then the whole sum of such tax shall be come due and payable after the first Monday in January. I desire also to remind the tax pay ers that the system of taxation has been changed from alphbetic to the numerical system and it will be absolutely necessary that your noti ces accompany payment of your tax es, or the discription of your land up on which you desire to pay taxes, as the new system provides a number instead of name for all real prop erty. The commissioners under the new law designated the Assessor as the collector of road taxes for Bingham county and while road overseers have been deputised to collect road tax in their respective districts, it will be necessary for you to bring or send your road tax receipts at the time of payment of your property tax, that the same may be properly cancelled from the roll.
