An 1865 List Of Those Who Paid Income Tax 
In Beaver County 

This list appeared in the Beaver Argus issues of Jan. 25 and Feb. 1, 1865 and was prefaced by the following editorial: "We begin this week the publication of the Special Income Tax List of Beaver County, and will conclude it next week. We have been surprised, in looking over the list, to find that many of the reputed wealthy, and many who boast of being wealthy are among the smallest tax-payers. It will be a matter of surprise to many of our readers to find how few there are in the county whose income reaches one thousand dollars per annum, and yet to know how many spend double that amount every year upon themselves and fami1ies. Taking their returns as a basis, we may safely conclude that many who have been looked upon as wealthy and reliable, are on the road to ruin. Those who return such small incomes, and yet 1ive so extravagantly, are not safe customers. Merchants and money-lenders take whiling in time. There is one of two things true, either that many have heretofore falsly represented themselves wealthy, and accumulating rapidly, or else they have defrauded the Government and perjured themselves in their returns. We may refer to this again, and we ask honest men to examine the list published and report known cases of fraud."
