Collection Information

Taxes have been imposed by governments for many reasons and on many things. The records are diverse and you’ll find varying degrees of detail included. Taxes on land may include details on property owned, whereas a poll tax may only include a name, date, and location. In addition, while the items being taxed may be similar, the content of tax records may also vary from place to place.

The largest collection of tax records in this category is the U.S. IRS Tax Assessment Records which can contain details like occupation, luxury items or income being taxed, as well as the name and the residence of each person taxed.

Tax lists document the assessment and appraisal of personal and real property of those in a given community, during a particular time period.
