Great Imboght District Tax List

1789

Transcribed by Sylvia Hasenkopf from original documents located at the State Library in Albany, 11th Floor, Manuscripts Division.  In these early years of the new country, the United States of America, New York State taxes were not collected each year automatically. In order to collect taxes the State Assembly had to vote on the measure, authorizing taxes to be collected for the following year.
