1837 SMITH COUNTY TENNESSEE TAX LISTS

 

 

These are the earliest tax lists that exist in their entirety. Earlier fragmentary tax lists exist in the form of delinquent lists published in the local Carthage Gazette newspaper. These lists record only those landowners who failed to pay their taxes on time, so buy law the Sheriff published delinquent lists as a prelude to subsequent legal action.

 

These lists are provided in their raw form. Im in the process of cropping and resizing the files, but in the meantime in the interest of making the information available as quickly as possible, here they are. The legend for the headings is:

 

D rated land = deeded land, taxed at the rate of 5 per $100 of value

S rated land = school land, taxed at the rate of 5 per $100 of value

Lots = city lots, taxed at the rate of 5 per $100 of value

Black Polls = slaves, taxed at the rate of 5 per $100 of value

White Polls = whites, 21+, taxed at the rate of 12 per $100 of value

 

A partial transcription and index is also provided.
