County Treasurer's Notice of Taxes
for the Yeai- 1899.
The tax rolls of Whitman county state of
Washington, for the year ISiMI are now in
my hands for the collection of the taxes there
on; said taxes cannot be paid or receipted for,
however, before the first Monday in February
(February 5), l'.)oo,and will become delinquent
June Ist., T.KX). Half payment of the real
estate taxes may be made on or before May
31, I'JOO, when the remaining half will not be
come delinquent nor be subject to interest
until after November 30, I'JOO. Interest at
the rate of 15 per cent per annum will be
charged from date of delinquency on all taxes.
To all who pay the tax on real property before
March 15th, 1900, in full, and in one pay
ment, there will be a rebate of three per cent.
It is held that the bs-netit of a half payment
goes only with the descriptions of property on
which such payment is noted. For example,
A owns two quarter sections of land separate
ly assessed on which the taxes are equal.
The payment of one in full, although half the
total tax, would not relieve him of interest on
the other, as no record of any payment on the
one would be n.ade on the other.
It will be the duty of the treasurer to issue
certificates of delinquency, to any person that
may apply therefor, on any real estate that
may become delinquent. On tracts that are
not half paid by May 31, I'JOO, certificates of
delinquency may be issued immediately there
On tracts that are halt paid by May 31st no
certificates of delinquency can be lssiud until
after November 30th, i'JOO. When applica
tion is made for a certificate of delinquency
interest is figured to date of application and
added to the original tax. The whole amount
then bears interest at the rate of 15 per cent
per annum. The state attorney holds that
the person who redeems a certificate of de
linquency must reimburse the purchaser of
said certificate for the fee of 50c charged him
for itß issuance.
Real estate upon which a certificate of de
linquency is issued may be redeemed at any
time before the expiration of three years
from date of delinquency of the taxes, repre
sented by said certHcate, by payment to the
county treasurer of the amount for which it
was issued, together with accrued interest and
amount of fee as above stated.
Personal property tax does not come under
the same rule as realty. No half payment can
be made as in the case of the latter. The law
governing its collection reads as follows: "On
and after the fiist Monday of February suc
ceeding the levy of taxes the oounty treasurer
shall proceed to collect all personal property
taxes. '
The 18Hi) laws require that the treasurer
shall notify all personal tax payers, by mail,
of the amount of tax due, and interest at
taches oO days after the date of such notice, at
the rate of 15 per cent, and not after the Ist
day of June, as heretofore held: and if such
taxes are not paid on thirty days notice, unless
secured by real estate, he Bhall distrain suf
ficient goods and chattels belonging t^ the
person charged with such taxes to pay the
same, etc., sec. 71, chap. 71, laws '!<7. It
will thus be seen that personal property tax
must be paid immediately after the first Mon
day in February, 1900.
There is this year an exemption of $300 on
certain specified articles of personal property.
Receipts for road property tax worked out
during the year 1900 will be taken in payment
of the road district or segregated road tax
charged upon the tax rolls of 1899, and must
be handed to the treasurer either at the time
of payment of first half or when full payment
is made. It often occurs that the tax payer
works out and is receipted for more road tax
than is charged against his property, or,
works out the amounc charged against all his
property and payß the taxes on part of it only.
In no case can the treasurer credit such re-,
ceipt for more than the road tax charged
against the property on which payment is
made, but, on taking them up must note on
them the amount for which they are credited
and in his next quarterly settlement there
after with the ccunty must turn them over
with other vouchers, and at any time af t< r
that, by applying to the county auditor, the
tax payer may obtain a deficiency certificate
for the amount not credited which will apply
in payment of road tax for any subsequent
year. The holder of a deficiency certificate
may deduct the amount thereof from the total
amount against him on the road supervisor's
books and work out the balance when the de
ficiency certificate and the receipt worked for
will cover the amount of his road property
tax. As the personal tax must be paid in full
at the earliest possible date after it becomes
due, separate receipts should be given by the
road supervisors for the amount of road prop
erty tax against personal property. In this
way, if the tax payer does not pay his real
estate when he pays his personal tax, the ne
cessity for surrendering his whole receipt and
then getting a deficiency certificate from the
auditor would be avoided.
There is always a great rush at the treas
urer's office during the two or three weeks
preceding any date of delinquency and mail
matter accumulates to such an extent that it
usually takes two months to work it off.
This cannot be expected to be otherwise, but
I desire to suggest that those who intend to
have the treasurer make out a list of their
taxes before paying send in for such Hit early
after February first. MaDy wait until the
treasurer's force is busy with the rush of peo
ple paying their taxes in person, and expect a
statement by return mail. Some wait until
the last day before delinquency. It requires
but little time to write the treasurer for a
statement and a postal card is sufficient. The
numbers of the real estate should be given
plainly. If country property the section or
subdivision of section, township and range,
and if town property the name of town, num
ber of lot and block and name of addition, if
in an addition. Thus if any error is found in
descriptionb ample time will be had for cor
rections before delinquency.
The safest way to remit money is by postal
money order or registered mail. Exchange is
always charged on checks and drafts collectible
at points o*her than Coif ax. The fees for
money orders and for registering letters do not
exceed the charges usually made for collecting
checks or drafts that must be put through the
banks. Wm. J. Windus,
Trfasurer of Whitman County.
