Tax List Column Headings

 

The Personal Property Tax List column headings represent the property categories that were taxable. These items were defined by Virginian law. Each county was responsible for accessing each individual based on these items. There were no standard forms available for the tax collector to use so it was his responsibility to handwrite his own forms. This created a non-standard tax list form because each comissioner created his own style of tax forms. Hence we find a variety of column headings for all the tax lists we photocopy. The same applies to the Land Tax List column headings but not in as great a variation.

For a generic list of Land Tax List column headings use the following as a guide:
