Subscribers to this work will be pleased, I am 
sure, to note the additions which have been made 
this year. The listing- of a good Bank in each 
County, it seems to me, ought to be of considerable 
value. As most transactions pertaining to real 
estate which are closed through banks, are han- 
dled at county seat towns, patrons of this directory 
will, as a general rule, find this all that is desired 
in the way of a Bank Directory, and will thus be 
saved the cost of a high-priced publication. The 
Banks listed herein, while not in every case those 
of the largest capitalization to be found, are promi- 
nent institutions, having special facilities for han- 
dling collections and other non-resident business. 
Many of them are U. S. Depositories, all have large 
deposits and are very popular locally. 

As in former editions, the most careful means 
have been employed in the selection of representa- 
tives in the other lines of business also. While it 
is not expected that I can become personally ac- 
quainted with all these parties or with their finan- 
cial standing, the method of obtaining their names 
is such that I do not hestitate to assert that this 
is as reliable a list, considering the territory cov- 
ered, as is possible to produce. Letters are sent 
to local bankers in the form as given below, and 
they, knowing* the reputation, habits, financial 
standing and ability of these parties, make the 
selection for me, and on the postal card sent them 
for the purpose, they recommend them in very 
strong terms. In a few counties where there are 
no banks or where the one written to failed to 
reply promptly, the recommendations were made by 
some other prominent business man or county of- 
ficer and their honesty and integrity vouched for. 



(Form of letter sent to Bankers, j 

Dear Sir: 

Will you be kind enough to give me, on the en- 
closed postal card in the following order: 

The name of one of the most reliable and re- 
sponsible abstracters, 

One of the best and most reliable real estate 
agents, and 

A first-class real estate lawyer in your town. 

If you will kindly select for me such men as you 
can recommend in these lines as being responsible, 
and who, in your judgment, would faithfully at- 
tend to any matters pertaining to real estate which 
might be entrusted to them, I will consider it quite 
an accommodation. Kindly answer promptly and 
give me, if possible, the names of three different 
men. 

Yours truly, 

The Special List of Abstracters approved by the 
Union Central Life Insurance Co. is also a new 
feature. It is needless for me to point out the ad- 
vantage of this to Financial Correspondents of this 
company, or their sub-agents, or to describe the 
method of investigation employed before the names 
are placed on this company's approved list. Suffice 
it to say, that their requirements, as is the case 
with all large life insurance companies, are very 
rigid and to be classed as one of their approved 
abstracters is a strong recommendation in itself. 

The matter which this publication now contains, 
if printed in larger type, on pulp paper, and spaced 
as some real estate directories are, is sufficient to 
make a very large volume. Believing that a bulky 
affair of this kind is in no way desirable, I have 
made this of a size to easily slip into a pigeon 
hole of a desk, where it is at all times available for 
ready reference. 

Inasmuch as the revision has been so thorough 
and complete and we are now so far along in 1907, 
it is deemed that no further issues of this book 
will be necessary until January, 1909. In the mean- 
time I hope all the reliable men whose names fol- 
low may enjoy the prosperity which they justly 
deserve and be able to give "Montgomery's" some 
credit for aiding in the cause.

if not then paid 15 per cent is added to the amount 
thereof. And if said one-half be not paid before the 



LAWS AND FORMS— CALIFORNIA 307 



last Monday in April next, at 6 o'clock p. m., an 
additional 5 per cent is added. The remaining one- 
half of the taxes on all real property is payable 
on the first Monday in January next, and delinquent 
on the last Monday in April at 6 o'clock p. m. ; and if 
not then paid 5 per cent is added. All taxes may be 
paid at the time the first installment is due and pay- 
able. All taxes are payable to the tax collector at 
his office. 

The taxes may be paid upon each particular lot 
assessed. 

On or before June 5th of each year the tax collector 
must publish the delinquent list, which must contain 
the names of the persons, and description of the pro- 
perty delinquent, and the amount of taxes, penalties 
and costs due, and appended thereto a notice that 
unless the taxes delinquent, together with the costs 
and penalties are paid, the real property upon which 
such taxes are a lien will be sold. This delinquent list 
and notice must be published once a week for three 
successive weeks in some newspaper. 

At the time fixed in the notice of the sale of 
property if the amount of tax and dues 'thereon are 
not paid, the land is struck off and sold by the 
tax collector to the state. A certificate of sale is 
then issued to the state. The property so sold may 
may be redeemed by the owner or any party in inter- 
est within five years from the date of the sale to the 
state, or at any time prior to the time the state sells 
the land. If the property is not redeemed within five 
years from the date of sale, the tax collector, or his 
successor in office, must execute a deed for the pro- 
perty to the state. This deed conveys to the state the 
absolute title to the property free of all incumbrances ; 
but the owner of the land, or any party in interest, 
may redeem the property from the state even after the 
execution of this deed, at any time before the state 
sells the land, by the payment of the original tax 
for which the land is sold, all penalties and dues, and 
all taxes which would have been assessed between the 
time of sale and the redemption. 

Conveyances. 

Land in this state is usually conveyed by deed called 
a "grant," which may be in the following form : 

I, A. B,. grant to C. D. all that real property 
isituated in (insert name of county) county), 
state of California, bounded (or, described) as 
follows: (here insert description, or if the land 
sought to be conveyed has a descriptive name, it 
may be described by the name, as for instance, 
"The Norris Ranch"). 

Witness my hand this (insert day) day of 
(insert month (, 19... A. B. 

Or by grant bargain and sale deed. 
No private or other seal is required, and no wit- 
nesses are necessary to the validity of the deed. 
Either husband or wife may convey his or her sep- 
arate property without the signature of the other. 
♦Husband can convey community property not home- 
stead but to cut off any equities that might be 



308 LAWS AND FORMS— CALIFORNIA 

claimed tby wife, husband and wife should join in the 
conveyance of community property. The separate 
property of husband or wife is that owned by either 
before or at the time of marriage, and that acquired 
afterwards by gift, bequest, devise or descent, with 
the rents, issues and profits thereof. All other prop- 
erty acquired by either after marriage is community 
property. 

All deeds are valid between the parties without 
being acknowledged, but to entitle it to record and 
make it valid as to other parties the execution of the 
deed should be acknowledged. This acknowledgement 
may be made without this state, but within the United 
States, and within the jurisdiction of the officer ; be- 
fore either a Justice, Judge or Clerk of any Court 
of record in the United States, or of any state, a com- 
missioner appointed by the Governor of this state for 
that purpose, a Notary Public oir any other officer of 
the state where acknowledgment is made, authorized 
by its laws to take such proof or acknowledgement. 
The acknowledgement may be made without the United 
States before either a Minister, Commissioner or 
Charge d* Affaires of the United States, resident and 
accredited in the country where the acknowledgement 
is made, or a Consul, Vice Consul or Consular agent 
of the United 'States resident in the country where 
the acknowledgement is made, or commissioners ap- 
pointed for such purposes by the Governor of the 
state or a notary public. When any of the officers 
above mentioned is authorized by law to appoint a 
deputy, the acknowledgement may be taken by such 
deputy in the name of his principal. 

The following is the general form of certificate 
to be made by the officer taking the acknowledgement, 
to-wit :

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 18th, 1907, by J. E. Mc- 
Intyre of Colorado Spring's. 

Taxes. 

Paya.ble in one or two installments on or before 
the last day of January and July, annually. Delin- 
quent February and August 1, annually. 

Property owned and held in any county on the first 
day of May in each and any year shall be subject to 
tax assessment for such year. The state pays no part 
of the expenses incurred in the collection of taxes. A 
mortgagee may protect his interests by the payment of 
taxes on the mortgaged property, and reclaim the same 
with twenty-five per cent per annum. Such payment 
of tax is an additional lien upon the mortgaged prop- 
erty. Premptions and homestead entries are taxable 
before patent issued and if located before first of May 
are taxable for that year. Taxes may be paid one- 
half in January and one-half in July in each year. 
Where there is no agreement, on property purchased 
between December 31 and July 1, the grantee must 
pay the taxes, and where purchased between June 30 
and January 1, the grantor must pay them. Property 
on which taxes remain unpaid is sold about October 1. 
It is the duty of every person subject to taxation to 
attend at the office of the treasurer between the first 
day of December and the first day of August of each 
fiscal year, and pay his taxes ; and if such person shall 
neglect and fail to pay such tax until after the first 
day of August following the levy of the same, 
the treasurer may make the same by distress 
and sale. All taxes shall be due and payable one-half 
on or before the last day of January and the balance 
on or before the last day of July of the year following- 
the one in which they are assessed. In case the first 
installment of one-half the tax is not paid prior to 
February 1, then there snail be assessed against such 
installment of tax a. penality of one per cent for each 
month or fractional part thereof until paid, provided 



310 LAWS AND FORMS— COLORADO 

it is paid prior to August 1. On the first of August 
the unpaid taxes of the preceding year become delin- 
quent and shall thereafter draw interest at the rate 
of 18 per cent per anum, but the treasurer shall con- 
tinue to receive payment of the same with interest 
until the day of sale for taxes. The county treasurer 
is required by law, prior to the 2 0th day of August in 
each year, to make out a list of all lands and town 
lots subject to sale, with an accompanying notice .stat- 
ing that so much of each tract of land or town lots 
described in said list as may be necessary for that 
purpose will on a day specified thereafter, be sold by 
him at public auction at the county treasurer's office 
for the taxes and charges thereton and taxes 
and charges against the owner thereof for 
personal property. Ditches and canals are exempt 
from taxation when they are used exclusively ib'y the 
owners or stockholders, but are subject to taxation 
when water is sold therefrom to consumers. Mining 
claims are taxable. The assessment of mining claims 
is based on the gross proceeds and is not to exceed 
one-fifth of the value of such gross proceeds, provided 
the value of the mining claims is over one thousand 
dollars. It is the duty of the town, city and county 
treasurers to mail notice to each person from whom 
taxes are due. The treasurer issues his certificate of 
sale to the purchaser of property at a tax sale. Such 
certificate of sale is assignable, and by 1899 law draws 

2 4 per cent per annum interest for first six months, 
18 per cent second six months and 12 per cent re- 
maining period. Prior to 1899 tax certificates drew 

3 6 per cent first six months, 30 per cent second six 
months and 24 per cent thereafter. Purchasers may 
pay subsequent taxes. Land may be redeemed from 
such sale at any time within three years from date of 
sale, and at any time before the execution of the 
treasurer's deed, by the payment to the county treas- 
urer of the amount for. which the land was sold, with 
interest thereon from the date of sile at the rate per 
cent per annum bid by purchaser at such sale not to 
exceed the rate of 24 per cent per annum for the first 
six months, 18 per cent per annum for the subsequent 
six months and the remaining period at the rate of 12 
per cent per annum together with the amount of alJ 
taxes accruing on said real estate after the sale paid 
by the purchaser and endorsed on his certificate 
of purchase with interest thereon at the rate 
of 12 per cent per annum on such taxes paid subse- 
quent to such sale. Provided that from the time 
when the purchaser is entitled to a deed such taxes 
shall bear interest at 8 per cent per annum arid no 
more up to the time of applying for said deed. After 
such three years, purchaser may have a deed from 
the treasurer which shall be prima facie evidence of 
the regularity of the treasurer's act in that behalf. 
Deeds issued on sales for special improvements in- 
stead of general taxes are not prima facie evidence 
of regularity of proceedings, but the holder of deed 
must prove regularity of proceedings in such cases. 
Taxes are a perpetual lien upon real estate and per- 



LAWS AND FORMS-COLORADO 311 

sonal property until paid. Mortgagee may pay de- 
linquent taxes or redeem as aforesaid, and in fore- 
closure suits recover judgement for the amount with 
interest at 2 5 per cent per annum. Agents are liable 
to their principals for not listing. All moneys of 
non-residents kept and loaned and used within the 
state, for the purpose of investment and profit are 
subject to taxation the same as personal effects and 
choses in action of residents, but only for state, coun- 
ty and general school purposes. (The rate of taxation 
in Denver and other large cities is comparatively low. 

Conveyances. 

Witnesses or private seals are not necessary to the 
validity of. a deed. It is not necessary for the husbancf 
and wife to join in conveyances or deeds of property 
owned separately. It is not necessary for the wife to 
acknowledge release of dower as the wife has no 
dower in the state." The following is the form of 
acknowledgement for individuals :

LAWS OF CONNECTICUT 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, July 1st, 1907, by Henry C. 
Stevenson, Attorney at Law, 83 Fairfield Avenue, 
Bridgeport, Conn. 

Taxes. 

On or before October 15th of eacn year the assessors 
of each town are required to give notice requiring 
all persons liable to pay taxes to bring in lists under 
oath, of the taxable property belonging to them on 
October 1st of the same year. Lists filled out are to 
be returned on or before November 1st, a separate 
description of each parcel of real estate being in- 
cluded. In the City of Bridgeport notice must be given 
on or .before September 1st ; and the lists are of prop- 
erty owned on September 1st and must be filed on or 
before October 1st. 

If the resident taxpayer neglects to return such 
list, assessors are required to make a list for him 
and add ten percentum thereto. 

Taxable property of non-residents is arranged by 
assessors in separate lists and valued by the assessors 
acording to the best information to be obtained. 

When the assessors complete their lists, arranged in 
alphabetical order, they must -be lodged for public in- 
spection in the town clerk's office on or before January 
15th, except in towns of over 10,000 inhabitants where 
they are lodged in the town clerk's or assessors office 
on or before January 31st. 

All taxes are assessed as of October 1st (except 
in the City of Bridgeport where it is September 1st) 
and payable at various times, depending on the votes 
of each town, between March 1st and July 15th of the 
following year. As between grantor and grantee, if 
nothing is stated in the conveyance, the grantor in a 
deed dated after October 1st (in Bridgeport after 
September 1st) must pay the taxes. The grantee, 
however, must be prepared for the contingency of the 
grantor's default, for the taxes become a lien upon 
the real estate itself. 

The rule of valuation is the present true and just 
value. Market value and not value at forced or auc- 
tion sale is considered. In actual practice real estate 
is put in the tax list, as a general rule, at about 
three-quarters of the market value ; in some towns 
as low as one-half ; and in Bridgeport at full value. 
All land to be set in the list of the town where situ- 
ated. 

Collector gives notice toy a newspaper advertise- 
ment of the time and place of payment of taxes. 
Taxes not paid within one month after same become 
due draw interest at the rate of nine percentum. The 
time set by the collector to receive them is the time 
when taxes become due. 

If any person fall to pay taxes, the collector makes 
demand on such person, if a resident of the town, or 



LAWS AND FORMS-COI^NECTICUT 313 

•t: 1 — . i 

leaves a written demand at nis usual place of abode. 
If a non-resident of the town collector makes demand 
or deposits in the mail, postage prepaid, a written de- 
mand for such tax, addressed to last known address. 
After such demand, collector may levy on the taxable 
personality of such delinquent, as in executions, and 
in default of such personality he may enforce by levy 
and sale of any lien on real estate, or levy on body of 
delinquent. 

Interest of any person in real estate which is 
leg-ally set in his tax list, shall be subject to a lien 
for such taxes as are laid on such interest. Such 
lien shall exist from the first day of October of the 
year previous to that in which taxes become due 
until one year after taxes are due. While lien exists 
and before it is continued by certificate it is subject 
to levy and sale completed before its expiration. Col- 
lector may bring suit for foreclosure of tax liens. 
Court limits time for redemption or orders sale of 
property. 

The mode of selling land for taxes is as follows, 
briefly : Collector makes duplicate notices of his levy 
of tax warrant, containing name of tax payer, amount 
of tax, description of property, and time and place of 
sale, one of which is posted on sign post and the other 
filed in town clerk's office not more than ten weeks, 
nor less than nine, before time of sale. He also pub- 
lishes such notice at least once a week for three suc- 
cessive weeks in a town, or if none in the county, 
newspaper, beginning not more than ten nor less than 
nine weeks before time of sale. 

He also mails a similar notice to the delinquent, 
and to any other persons who are interested. The 
sale is by public auction, and the collector sells enough 
of the estate to pay the tax and charges, and within 
one week after sale executes a deed to purchaser, 
which is lodged in the town clerk's office for one year 
unrecorded. If the delinquent or any other person 
interested in the estate, within the year pays or ten- 
ders to the purchaser the amount paid by him with in- 
terest at twelve per centum, the deed is delivered to 
to him, who, if not the person primarily liable for 
the tax shall have a claim against the person primarily 
liable for the tax, for the amount so paid. If pur- 
chase money and interest be not paid within the year, 
the deed shall be recorded and be of full effect. 

Collector may continue the tax lien by recording a 
certificate to that effect in the town clerk's office with- 
in the first year after tax becomes due, and thereon 
the lien shall continue, with interest at seven instead 
of nine per centum, until paid. No sale is good unless 
notice is given to encumbrancers toy mail postage pre- 
paid at least four weeks before sale. 

Conveyances. 

All conveyances of land shall be in writing, sealed 
by the grantor, and subscribed with his own hand, or 
with his mark with his name thereto annexed, or by 
his attorney authorized for that purpose by a power 



314 LAWS AND FORMS— CONNECTICUT 

executed and acknowledged in the manner provided 
for conveyances. The deed must be acknowledged by 
the grantor or by such attorney, to be his free act 
and deed. 

Two witnesses are required to properly execute a 
deed of real property, but a deed defective in this 
particular is good to convey the equitable title, and a 
deed of land in Connecticut executed in another state 
in accordance with the laws of such state is valid. 
The^ word"Seal" or the letters "L. S." are sufficfenL 
as a seal. 

A wife need not join in the conveyance of husband's 
property, as dower only attaches to that property of 
which the husband dies siezed. 

A wife married before April 20, 18 77, cannot give 
good title in a conveyance of her own real estate 
unless her husband joins or unless the husband and 
wife, during marriage, enter into a written contract 
for the mutual abandonment of all rights in the prop- 
erty of each other, and the acceptance instead, of the 
rights given by statute to persons married after April 
20, 1877. A wife married after April 20, 1877, may 
convey her own property without joining her husband. 

Acknowledgements may be taken, if in the state, by 
a judge of a court of record, a clerk of the superior, 
common pleas, or district court, a justice of the peace, 
commissioner of the superior court, notary public (with 
or without official seal), town clerk or assistant town 
clerk ; or if within any other state or territory of the 
IT. S., before a commissioner of the state of Connecti- 
cut residing in such state or territory, or any officer of 
such state or territory authorized by local law to take 
the acknowledgement of deeds. But no officer shall 
have power to take such acknowledgement except 
within the territorial limits in which he may perforin 
the proper duties of his office. 

No conveyance shall .be effectual to hold lands 
against any other person but the grantor and his 
heirs, unless recorded on the records of the town in 
which the lands lie. 

All conveyances of land of which the grantor is 
ousted by the entry and possession of another, unless 
made to the person in actual possession, shall be void. 

The commission - and oath of office of a notary 
public must be recorded by the clerk of the superior 
court in the county in which such notary resides. Any 
notary public may exercise his functions at any place 
in the state. It is not necessary for a notary public 

to state the date of expiration of his commission.

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, July 1st, 1907, by Horace Greeley, 
Eastburn, 834 Market St., Wilmington. 

Taxes. 

The assessment of taxes shall be completed on Jan- 
uary 1st, except in Kent County where it shall be com- 
pleted by the 15th of February, and no assessment 
shall be made after the last day of March. General 
assessment of real and personal property made every 
four years, excepting in Wilmington Hundred (a div- 
ision of the country corresponding to township) ,- where' 
assessment is annual. In cities, towns and villages 
new buildings and structures of a permanent char- 
acter are assessed annually. The levy " courts of New 
Castle and Sussex Counties sit as a court of appeal 
on the first Tuesday of March in every year to examine 
assessments and to determine appeals against the 
same, and the levy court of Kent County on the second 
Tuesday in March 'in every year for the same purpose. 
Alterations may be made at the March term of the 
levy court for two years after the first term of ap- 
peals from the assessments. 

Taxes shall remain a Men for two years from the 
first day of July of the year in which imposed, but 
in New Castle County taxes on rcai estate continue 
a lien until collected, if the real estate remains the 
property of the person to whom it is assessed. Coun- 
ty taxes in Kent and Sussex Counties become due in 
thirty days from the first Tuesday in April. County 
taxes in New Castle county become due July 1st. In 
Kent and Sussex counties taxes are payable to the 
tax collector of the representative district in which the 
property is situate. In New Castle county, outside of 



316 L A WS AND FORMS— DELAWARE 

the city of Wilmington, they are payable to the col- 
lector of the Hundred in which the property is situate. 
In the city of Wilmington county taxes are payable 
to the receiver of taxes of New Castle county. On 
county taxes in New Castle and Sussex counties paid 
before October 1st. an abatement of 5 per cent is 
made: if paid before December 1st. an abatement of 
3 per cent is made : and if paid during the month of 
December no abatement is made: and if unpaid on 
January 1st in New Castle county. 5 per cent is added 
thereto, and in Sussex county, if unpaid on January 
1st. 1 per cent is added per month until paid.

made by the collectors of delinquent taxes, they may 
be collected by distress and sale of personal property. 
In Kent and Sussex counties 10 days' notice of the 
sale is required by advertisements posted in four most 
public places of the comity, two of which shall be 
in the Hundred of the collector. In New Castle coun- 
ty the sale shall be advertised for three consecutive 
weeks in a newspaper published in the county, and 
by notices posted in five public places in the Hundred, 
in which the property is located. Notice must also 
be given to the owner five days before the sale if he 
reside in the state. 

If the owner of the real estate fails to pay taxes or 
does not reside in the Hundred where the land is sit- 
uated, or be a minor, tenants' personal property may 
be sold. If sufficient personal property taxable of 
their tenants cannot be found, the land may be sold. 
The same notice of such sale is required in Kent and 
Sussex counties, as in sale of personal property. In 
New Castle county a notice of such sale must be pub- 
lished once a week for three weeks in a newspaper 
published in the countv. and notices posted in five 
public places in the Hundred in whlcn the real estate 
is situate for the same period. If «tne owner is a resi- 
dent notice must also be left at his abode or served 
personally upon him 2 days before the sale: if a non- 
resident, notice is left with the tenant or posted upon 
the premises. If any person other than the one as- 

— d. has an interest in real or personal property, 
which interest appears upon the recoro>3 of New Castle 
county, he must be given notice 20 days prior to the 
sale : if a non-resident, notice must be mailed to him. 
if his residence is known, and also posted upon the 
premises.

taxes, if the owner be ready at the next term of court 
to pay the taxes and costs, the sale shall not be ap- 
proved. No deed shall be made for land sold in Kent 
or Sussex counties, until the expiration of two years

LAWS OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 11th, 1907, by Brandenburg 
& Brandenburg, of the Washington Bar. 

Taxes. 

Real estate is assessed every three years and on a 
basis of about two-thirds of its actual value. On 
default of payment of taxes for two years, property 
is sold for the same, irrespective of who may be 
the holder. Taxes are due and payable semi-annuallv, 
in November and May. One-half of the tax levied 
becomes due and payable on the first day of No- 
vember next succeeding the completion of the assess- 
ment, and the remaining half of such taves becomes 
due and payable on the first day of May next fol- 
lowing to the collector of taxes of the District of 
Columbia. No dis count allowed. The semi-annual 
taxes are delinquent after the close of the months 
of May and November, and a penalty of one (1) per 
cent for each month is imposed on the amount of 
tax in arrears. The property is advertised for sale 
in pamphlet form by the District, and in the daily 
papers. 

Two years are allowed in which to redeem property, 
after sold, by the payment of the taxes, penalty and 
costs due at t»he time of the offer of the sale and 
that may have accrued after that date, together with 
interest. Tax deed issues within two years from date 
of sale where property has not been redeemed, which 
deed is to be admitted and held to be prima facie 
evidence of a perfect title in fee simple to any prop- 
erty so purchased. 

Conveyances. 

1. Deeds conveying real estate must be signed and 
sealed by the grantor. 

2. Husband and wife must join in conveyance of j 
real estate. 

4. The wife of the party executing the deed must J 
join in .the same, or by separate deed release her right J 
of dower. The acknowledgement of the wife is the » 
same as provided in the case of the husband.

LAWS OF FLORIDA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June 29th, 1907, by Henry W. 
■Bishop, of Eustis, Florida. 

Taxes. 

Owners of real estate should send a list of real 
estate owned by them to the County Tax Assessor 
>f the county where the land lies before the first 
)f January of each and every year, with the cor- 
rect name of the owner and his address in full. 
Blanks on which to make such list are furnished .by 



320 LAWS AND FORMS— FLORIDA 

the state, and can be procured from the County 
Tax Assessor on application, by enclosing- return post- 
age and sending name and address. If lands are 
not returned for taxes, they are assessed as unknown. 

Taxes become a lien from the date of assessment, 
January 1st, of each year. 

All taxes are due and payable on or after the 
first Monday of November of each year at the office 
of the Tax Collector at the county seat of the county 
where the lands lie and can be paid at any time 
prior to the first Monday in April, following. Taxes 
cannot be paid in installments and no discounts are 
allowed. 

In remitting for taxes, the owner should send re- 
turn postage, and should give his address^ in full, 
with a request that the Tax Collector^ endorse his 
name and address in full on the tax receipt/ A carbon 
copy of the tax receipt is kept on file in the office 
of the Tax Collector, and in case of tax title com- 
plications, the owner would probably receive notice 
and be able to protect himself. 

Taxes are delinquent after the first Monday in 
April. If not paid at that time, the land is adver- 
tised for sale, by publication in a newspaper published 
in the county where the lands lies, once each week 
for four consecutive weeks. At the time fixed for the 
sale the lands are sold before the County Court 
House, and tax certificate issued therefor. 

Tax certificates may be redeemed at the office of 
the Clerk of the Circuit Court at the county seat 
of the county in which the land lies, at any time 
before tax deed issues, by payment of the amount 
of such certificate and interest at the rate of 25 pe v ' 
cent per annum, and 50 cents redemption fees, and 
at the time of such redemption the owner must also 
pay all taxes then due .on said lands and take up all 
outstanding tax certificates on same held by the state. 

The holder of any tax certificate, on application 
to the clerk of the Circuit Court in the county where 
the land lies, two years after date of sale, is entitlei 
to a tax deed. The clerk is required to publish notice 
of application for tax deed in a newspaper published 
in the county where the lands lie for 30 days pre- 
ceding the issue of tax deed, and is required to mail 
a copy of the notice to the owner or the person to 
whom last assessed, in case his address is known to the 
clerk. 

A tax title becomes void and of no effect, unless the 
purchaser of such tax title goes into actual possession 
of the land or brings suit within one year to recover 
possession. 

Suits to set aside tax deeds must be begun within 
four years from the date of same. 

Conveyances. 

Two subscribing witnesses necessary on deeds. 

A scroll answers the purpose of a seal. 

Any married woman owning real property may 
sell, convey, or mortgage it, as she might do if she 
were not married, provided her husband join in such 
sale, conveyance, or mortgage. A married woman 
may release dower by .joining her husband in the 
conveyance, or by a separate deed executed in like 
manner as other conveyances.

fer or mortgage of real property, or any interest 
therein, or any lease for the term of one year or 
longer against creditors or subsequent purchasers for 
a valuable consideration without notice, it must ibe 
recorded. No such instrument made or executed in 
virtue of any power of attorney shall be good or 
effectual in law or equity as against creditors or sub- 
sequent purchasers for a valuable consideration and 
without notice unless the power of attorney be re- 
corded before .the accruing of the right of such cred- 
itor or subsequent purchaser. 

In order to entitle any of the instruments named in 
the preceding sections, or any other instruments con- 
cerning real property, to such record, the execution 
thereof must be acknowledged by the party executing 
the same, or the execution thereof by the said party 
must be proved by a subscribing witness thereto be- 
fore the officers and in the manner following : If 
such acknowledgement or proof be made within this

deputy clerk of any court of record, notary public, 
or justice of the peace of this state, and the certificate 
of acknowledgement of proof shall be under the seal 
of the court or the officer,' as the case may be. 
If the acknowledgement or proof be made out of this 
state but within the United States, it may be made 
before a commissioner of deeds appointed by the gov- 
ernor of this state, or before a judge or clerk of any 
court of the United States or of any state, territory 
or district having a seal, or before a notary public 
or justice of the peace of such state, territory or dis-

to take acknowledgement of deeds, on a private exam- 
ination separately and apart from her husband, that 
she executed the same freely and voluntarily, and 
without compulsion, constraint, apprehension, or fear

Empire Building, Atlanta. 

Taxes. 

All property must be given in for taxation to the 
State and County Tax Receiver of the county where 
it is located, or in the case of certain corporations 
to the Comptroller General. 

If the valuation at which it is returned is consid- 
ered too low the Tax Receiver may assess it within 
thirty days after the return is made, and if the tax 
payer is dissatisfied, arbitration is then had. 

The state's part of the tax is assessed each year 
by the Governor and Comptroller General under the 
direction of the legislature upon the whole taxable 
property in the state, as soon as its value is ascer- 
tained. 

The county's part of the tax is assessed upon 
all taxable property in the county, and its rate is 
fixed either by a Board of County Commissioners or 
by the County Ordinary. 

The state and county taxes become a lien upon 
real estate sometime between January 1st and April 
1st of each year. The exact day upon which they 
become a lien is fixed each year by a proclamation 
of the Governor. 

State and county taxes are payable from October 
,1st to December 20th, of each year. They are not 
payable in installments nor is any discount allowed 
for early payment. 

After December 20th in each year fi. fas. may ,be 
issued and at once levied and the property subject 
to the tax be at once advertised and publicly sold 
after advertisement once a week for four weeks in a 
newspaper of the county where the property is lo- 
cated, and a tax deed may be made to the purchaser 
on the day of such sale. 

Property that has been sold at tax sales may be 
redeemed at any time within a year by paying the 
purchaser the amount paid and ten per cent premium.

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 9th, 1907, by W. W. Wood, 
of Okmulgee. 

Taxes. 

Cities and towns are sustained by municipal taxes, 
the levy and collection of which is governed by the 
laws of Arkansas, in so far as applicable. The as- 
sessment of personal property, lands, lots, etc., is 
made between the first Monday in February, and the 
30th day of April of each year. 

Personal property is assessed in name of person 
who is owner on first Monday in February. Per- 
sonality and realty is assessed at its true value in 
money, and taxes take precedence over all judge- 
ments, executions, encumbrances and liens, and are a 
lien on the property from the first Monday in Feb- 
ruary of year, in which assessment is made. ,As be- 
tween grantor 'and grantee the lien for taxes attaches 
on the first Monday in July of each year. Tax books 
are delivered to collector on or before first Monday 
In November. 

Taxes become delinquent on the 10th day of Feb- 
ruary thereafter, with a penalty of twenty-five per 
centum attached. Delinquent tax lists must be pub- 
lished in some newspaper weekly for two weeks, be- 
tween first Monday in March and second Monday in 
April. 

There is attached to such delinquent list a notice 
that such delinquent lands will be sold on second 
Monday in April. Sales shall ,be made to persons 
offering amount of taxes, penalty and costs for smal- 
lest subdivision of delinquent lands or lots. Lands

and lots so sold may ibe redeemed at any time within 
two years after sale, except as to insane persons, 
minors and persons in . confinement, who may redeem 
within two years after expiration of such disability. 
After lapse of two years if lots or lands remain unre- 
deemed, on production of certificate of purchase, deeds 
shall be issued to holders, his heirs or assigns, which 
conveys absolute title. 

Conveyances. 

The Arkansas laws of conveyancing are in force 
in this territory. Husband and wife must join in 
all conveyances of husband's lands, but husband need 
not join in conveyance of lands of wife. In convey- 
ance of husband's lands wife must acknowledge sep- 
arate and apart from husband and relinquish her 
dower. .See Arkansas forms for deeds and acknowl- 
edgements. 

N. R. At the last session of congress, an act was 
passed, called the "Enabling Act," authorizing the 
formation of a new state, out of the territories of 
Oklahoma and the Indian Territory. 

Under the provisions of this act a Constitutional 
Convention is authorized to be held by delegates to 
be elected by the people, fifty-five from each terri- 
tory and two from the Osage Nation making a total 
of 112. These delegates have been elected and a 
constitution framed but the election upon the adop- 
tion of the same and for state and county officers, 
provided for in the enabling act has been temporarily 
enjoined by the court on account of a controversy 
growing out of a question as to the power of the 
constitutional convention to subdivide some of the 
larger counties in Oklahoma into smaller ones. It is 
thought however at this writing (June 17th) that the 
injunction will be dissolved toy the Supreme Court of 
Oklahoma on June 2.5th. If so, the Governor of 
Oklahoma will then call an election, of which 60 days 
notice must be given. At this election the people 
will vote upon the adoption of the constitution and 
elect a full quota of State and County Officers. 

S'hould the constitution foe adopted, of which there 
appears to be no doubt, it then becomes the duty 
of the president to issue his proclamation, within 20 
days, declaring the admission of the new state into 
the Union. 

The constitution as drafted, subdivides the 
Indian Territory into counties, and, upon the 
issuance of the president's proclamation the two 
territories at once, become a fully organized state, 
with a complete organization in all its departments, 
including five representatives in congress. The first 
legislature will elect two United States senators. 

In so far as applicable and in uniformity to the 
enabling act, all laws of Oklahoma will immediately 
become in force in the Indian Territory upon the 
admission of the new state. 

Until the formal admission of the state, every- 
thing, including recording districts, in the Indian Ter- 
ritory, remains exactly the same as before the pas- 
sage of the enabling act. ,

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 24th, 1907, by Stimson 
and Condit, of, Terre Haute. 

Taxes. 

Taxes are assessed on real and personal property 
on the 1st day of March of each year, and on basis 
of a fair cash value. They are liens from jand after 
March 1st of each year, and are payable^from Jan- 
uary 1st until the first Monday of May^ following-. 
Taxes become delinquent after that date. S'ame may 
be paid in two installments, one-half before the 
first Monday of May and the other half on or before 
the first Monday in November. Failures to pay 
first installment when due makes it become de- 
linquent and 10 per cent penalty is added, and upon 
failure to pay second installment, a penalty of 6 
per cent on amount of tax accrued is added. If not 
paid by second Monday in February the property on 
that day will be sold by treasurer for payment of 
taxes and penalties. The property may be redeemed 
within six months by payment of amount bid with 
10 per cent penalty, if redeemed after six months 
and within one year the penalty added is 15 per cent ; 
if redeemed after one year and before two years, the 
penalty added is 25 per cent. At the expiration of 
two years the purchaser receives a tax deed and no 
redemption can thereafter be made. Infants and in- 
sane persons may redeem within two years after the 
removal of itheir disabilities. 

Tax titles are not absolute, as a substantial com- 
pliance with provisions of the tax law is necessary, 
and failure of same may be shown by owner and 
deed defeated, but in such case the purchaser is en- 
titled to a lien for amount paid and may foreclose, 
and have sale by sheriff and from which sale there is 
no redemption. 

Property of transients who at any time during 
any year may locate in any township, city, town 
or village, and offer merchandise for sale shall be 
appraised, entered on tax duplicate and taxes col- 
lected immediately. 

Conveyances. 

Husband and wife must join in all conveyances of 
realty. (No witnesses needed unless parties sign by 
mark. A married woman cannot go security for hus- 
band or any other person, and if she does, same is 
void ; likewise any mortgage given to secure same. 
She is, however, estopped if she makes a separate 
instrument under oath that loan was for her own use 
and benefit.

Relative To 
TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 17th, 1907, by Dudley & 
Coffin, Des Moines. 

Taxes. 

Due and payable to the county treasurer January 1, 
annually. Delinquent April, annually. May be paid 
in one or two installments. 

Property is listed at its actual value, which means 
its value in the market in the ordinary course of 
trade. Twenty-five per cent of this actual value is 
the assessed and taxable value. State and county 
taxes become due and payable on the first Monday of 
January, and one-half thereof may be paid before 
the first day of March succeeding the levy, and the 
remaining one-half before the first day of Septem- 
ber following ; provided, where the half has not been 
paid before the first day of April succeeding the levy, 
the whole tax shall become delinquent from the first 
day of March following the levy. If the second in- 
stallment be not paid before the first day of October 
succeeding the levy, it shall be delinquent. All de- 
linquent taxes draw interest at the rate of one per 
cent per month until paid. Personal property is liable 
to distress and sale for all taxes, and the tax list 
is the warrant therefor. Taxes on stocks of goods 
or • merchandise are and continue a lien thereon when 
sold in bulk, and may be collected from the owner, 
purchaser or vendee. Taxes on personal and real 
property are made a perpetual lien on real property. 
Lands are sold on the first Monday in December after 
taxes become delinquent, after notice in a newspaper 
published in the county for three weeks, last pub- 
lication one week prior to sale. Three years are al- 
lowed in which to redeem by payment of amount for 



332 LAWS AND FORMS-IOWA 

which lands were sold, with 8 per cent penalty, and 
S per cent per annum interest upon the whole amount. 
Before a valid tax deed can be executed the owner 
of the tax sale certificate must, after two years and 
nine months from the tax sale, give to the person to 
whom the said land is assessed, and the person in 
actual possession, written notice that deed will be 
taken in ninety days hence. Where land is assessed 
unknown and is unoccupied, no notice is necessary. 
A non-resident may file with the treasurer of the 
county a written appointment as his_ agent of some 
resident of the county where the land is situated, upon 
whom personal service must be made. Taxes become 
a lien as .between vendor and vendee December 31 
of each year. Citv taxes are levied by the city coun- 
cil and collected by the county treasurer, the maxi- 
mum levies being fixed by law. In a few cities under 
sp< cial charters, the assessment levy, collection and 
tax sales are made in. accordance with their charters. 

Conveyances. 

Neither witnesses nor private seals are required 
on deeds. 

Husband and wife should join in conveying the 
real estate of either. 

The wife need not be examined separate and apart 
from her husband, but must join in the conveyance 
to bar her dower.

LAWS OF KANSAS 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for .Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June 1, ,1907, by Rossington & 
Smith, of the Topeka Bar. 

Taxes. 

Taxes upon all real property, not expressly ex- 
empted therefrom, are assessed upon the actual money 
value of the property. 

As between grantor and grantee, where there is 
no express agreement as to taxes, if land is con- 
veyed between the first day of March and the first 
day of November, the grantee shall pay the taxes 
that may be assessed thereon for that year, but if 
conveyed between the first day of November and the 
first day of March then the grantor shall pay them. 

The realty tax becomes a lien upon the property 
November first and is payable to the county treas- 
urer, one-half on or 'before December 20, and one- 
half on or before June 20, of each year. If the 
whole tax is paid on or before December 20 a rebate 
of five per cent is allowed on the second half ; tout if 
the first half be not paid on or before December 20, 
the whole tax immediately toecomes due and is sub- 
ject to a penalty of five per cent thereon ; and to all 
tax unpaid on June 21 following an additional five 
per cent penalty is added and the property goes to 
tax sale. 

All property to be sold at tax sale must be adver- 
tised four consecutive weeks prior to the sale in 
some newspaper published or (if none published) of 
general circulation within the county, and sold on the 
first Tuesday of September following. 

The purchaser at tax sale upon payment of the 
purchase price receives a certificate entitling him 
to tax deed in three years, if the property is not re- 
deemed within that time by payment to the county 
treasurer of the amount for which said land was 
sold, and all subsequent taxes and charges thereon 
paid toy the purchaser, or his assigns, with interest 
at the rate of fifteen per cent per annum. 

In counties where the commissioners have adopted 
the provisions of a statute providing therefor they 
may authorize the county treasurer to bid off in 
the name, of the county all lands sold for taxes, and 
receive- no other bids thereon. All lands thus N bid 
off in the name of the county shall toe held toy the 
county until the expiration of the three years from 
the date of sale, subject only to the right of the 
owner, his heirs, administrators, assigns, and mort- 
gages of real estate sold for taxes, or his assigns, 
to redeem th'e same. After the expiration of three l 
years from the date upon which lands are so bid off 
by the county, tax deed may issue thereon, or if 
said lands are unredeemed, and no person shall offer 
to purchase the same for the taxes, penalties and 
costs due thereon, the county commissioners may 
permit the owner to redeem the same, or may au- 
thorize the county treasurer to execute and the county 



334 LrAWS AND FORMS— KANSAS 

clerk to assign tax-sale certificates for such lands 
for any sum less than the legal tax and interest 
thereon, as shall be in their judgment for the best 
interest of the county : Provided, that no deed shall 
be issued upon any certificate so assigned until six 
months after such assignment has <been made. 

Any interest of a minor may ibe redeemed from 
tax sale during his minority, or within one year 
after majority; and of idiots and insane persons 
within five years after sale. 

A tax deed is void unless recorded in the office 
of the register of deeds of the proper county within 
six months from the date of the issuance thereof, 
but when so recorded vests the purchaser with the 
legal title to the land, which can ,be avoided only 
for fatal irregularities in the proceedings or sale. 
If in proper form and duly acknowledged the deed is 
prima facie evidence of the regularity of all proceed- 
ings. Suits to avoid the sale or conveyance of lands 
sold for taxes must oe commenced within five years 
from the time of recording of the tax deed ; and a 
party who seeks to recover lands sold for taxes, 
claiming under a tax deed, must bring his action 
within two years after his cause of action accrues. 

Where a tax deed holder is defeated in an action 
for the recovery of the land the successful claimant 
shall, before being let into posession, pay to the holder 
of the tax deed or party claiming thereunder, the full 
amount of all taxes paid on such lands, with all in- 
terest and cost allowed by law up to the date of said 
tax deed ; including the cost of such deed and all sub- 
sequent taxes together with interest thereon at the 
rate of twelve per cent per annum. 

Conveyances. 

The wife should join with her husband in the con- 
veyance ; but this is not necessary if at the time of 
the making of the deed she has never been a resi- 
dent of the state, unless the land to be conveyed is 
the homestead. The husband must join with the wife 
in a conveyance of the wife's separate property. 
The wife need not be examined apart from her hus- 
band, nor relinquish her dower. Neither seals, scrolls 
nor wafers are required in the execution of a deed 
by a private person nor are witnesses necessary to 
the validity of a deed. Corporations must execute 
conveyances under the corporate seal. Any corpora- 
tion may convey lands -by deed, sealed with the com- 
mon seal of the corporation, and signed ,by the presi- 
dent, vice-president, or the presiding member or trus- 
tee, of said corporation, and such deed, when ac- 
knowledged by such officer to be the act of the cor- 
poration, or proved in the manner prescribed for other 
conveyances of lands, may ibe recorded in like man- 
ner and with the same effect as other deeds. Unac- 
knowledged deeds may be proved before any officer 
authorized to take acknowledgements. Powers of at- 
torney (as well as deeds) to convey land must be 
acknowledged and recorded. As 'between the parties, 
and persons having actual notice thereof, conveyances 
are valid even though not recorded. 

The acknowledgement, if taken within the state, 
must be before some judge or clerk of a court having 
a seal, a justice, notary public, who must use an 
official seal, a county clerk, register of deeds, or 



IvAWS AND FORMS— KANSAS 335 



mayor or clerk of an incorporated city. If taken 
out of the state the acknowledgement must be be- 
fore some court of record, or clerk or officer holding 
the seal thereof, a commissioner of deeds for this 
state, a notary public, who must use his official seal, 
justice of the peace, or ■ any United States consul 
resident abroad. If .before a justice of the peace 
(out of the state), his official character must be 
certified by the clerk of some court of record. 

All written instruments effecting- real estate sit- 
uated in this state, executed and acknowledged or 
proved in any other state, territory, or country, 
in conformity with the laws of such state, 
territory or country or in conformity with the laws 
of this state, shall be as valid as if executed within 
this state in conformity with the provisions of this 
.state for conveyances executed within the state.

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June, 1907, by Hall & Monroe, 
of New Orleans, La. (Hiibernia Bldg.) 

Taxes. 

■State taxes are due and payable prior to December 
31, annually. Delinquent December 31, annually. New 
Orleans city taxes due and payable prior to July 1, 
annually. Delinquent July 1, annually. 

All taxable property shall be listed and assessed 
each year at its actual cash value. The city taxes 
in New Orleans become delinquent after the first 
of July, state taxes after December 31. City taxes 
bear 10 per cent per annum penalties, state taxes 
2 per cent per month from 31st of December. Where 
owner is known, al real property must be assessed 
in owner's name. Separate list is made of property 
belonging to unknown owners. The property must 
be properly described. 

In January , State Auditor provides printed form 
of returns of assessment which assessors distribute 
and property owners are required to fill up under 
oath and return to assessor before Maylst in Parishes, 
and within twenty days after receipt of list in New 
Orleans. If no return is made assessment cannot 
be contested. Outside of Orleans Parish assessors 
must complete assessments prior to June 1, and give 
ten days published notice that their books will be 
open twenty days for inspection and correction. In 
Orleans assessments completed March 15th ; books 
open March 16th to 31st inclusive. While the ibooks 
are open dissatisfied tax payer must file sworn pro- 
test against assessment. If same is rejected he may 
apply to Board of Reviewers which meets first Mon- 
day of July, in the Parishes or before Committee of 
Assessment of City Council which meets April 1st 
to April 10th in Orleans, and urge his complaints 
contradictorily with the Assessors. If these tribu- 
nals decide against him, he may prior to November 
1st, appeal to the courts. 

As soon as assessment rolls are completed they must 
be filed with the recorder of mortgages. The taxes 
act as first lien from day of recordation. Property on 
which taxes are delinquent can be sold by tax collect- 
ors after proper advertisement without intervention of 
court proceedings. State constitution requires that 
where owner is known he must be served personally or 
at domicile with demand before valid sale can be 
made. Taxes on movable property are due on the 
first of the month succeeding the filing of the tax roll. 

The following property shall be exempt from tax- 
ation and no other : viz : All public property, places 
of religious worship o>r burial ; the rectories and 
parsonages of churches and grounds thereunto ap- 
purtenant, used .exclusively as residences for the 
ministers in charge of such churches; all charitable 
institutions, all buildings and property used exclusive- 
ly for public monuments and historical collections ;

colleges and other school purposes, the real and per- 
sonal estate of any public library and that of any 
other library association used by or connected with

and all paintings and statuary of any company or 
association kept in a public hall, provided the prop- 
erty so exempted be not leased for purposes of private 
or corporate profit or income ; household property to 
the value of $500 ; railroads and property thereof are 
exempt for ten years from date of completion, pro- 
vided they are completed prior to Jan. 1, 1909, and

five hands are exempt from municipal and parochial 
taxation until Jan. 1, 1910. Property of military or- 
ganizations and state national guard is also exempt. 

One year from date of recordation of act of sale 
is allowed in which to redeem. At the end of that 
period if redemption has not been made, a tax deed 
will issue. If all formalities have been complied with 
the tax title becomes absolute one year after date of 
recordation. Under an article of the cons-titution 
they are supposed to become absolute, in any event, 
after three years unless sale was made under dual 
assessment. 

Conveyances. 

On all deeds passed in this state acknowledgements 
must be witnessed by two male witnesses over the 
age of sixteen years and the deed should be signed 
by vendee also. Private seals are not necessary. 
Husband can sell and convey his own or community 
property without wife joining in conveyance, unless 
she has a privilege of mortgage registered against it, 
but he cannot sell and convey separate property of 
wife, though she may do so with his authority. If 
he refuses the Court can be asked to give this author- 
ization.

Relative To

Prepared expressly for .Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 20, 1907, by Jacob Rohr- 
back of Frederick, Md. 

Taxes. 

State taxes are levied by an act of the legislature, 



LAWS AND FORMS- MARYLAND 343 

the rate being fixed every two years. County taxes 
are assessed by the county commissioners of the 
respective counties each year about the months of 
May, June or July, on a basis cf about 70 per cent 
of the actual market value of the property and are 
a lien thereon from the date of their levy. They are 
payable in one installment to the county treasurer 
or district collector, as the case may .be, and become 
delinquent on January 1st next, succeeding their 
levy, from which Mate they bear interest at the rate 
of 6 per cent per annum. On all state taxes paid 
prior to September 1st, of the year for which they 
are levied, a discount of 5 per cent of the amount 
is allowed, on those paid prior to October 1st, a 
discount of 4 per cent is allowed and those paid prior 
to November 1st, a discount of 3 per cent is allowed. 
No discount is allowed on county taxes. On January 
1st next succgding their levy, if taxes are still un- 
paid, collector will notify delinquents of the amount 
due and that thirty days thereafter he will proceed 
to collect same by distress or execution. He then 
levies upon the property of the delinquent and after 
giving twenty days notice of time and place of sale, 
oy advertisement in at least one newspaper in the 
county or city where property is located and by a 
notice posted at the court house door, will sell the 
property at public auction to the highest bidder for 
cash. Twelve months from the date of sale are 
allowed in which to redeem property which may be 
done toy paying into the circuit court, to toe paid to 
the purchaser, the purchase price with interest there- 
on at the rate of 15 per cent per annum from date 
of sale. At the expiration of one year from date of 
sale, if redemption has not been made, a tax deed, 
conveying absolute title to the purchaser will be 
executed. 

Conveyances. 

It is necessary that a private seal toe made in 
order to convey title of a grantor and all deeds or 
other conveyances must bear the signature of at 
least one legal witness. 

It is not necessary for a notary public when taking 
an acknowledgement to state in his certificate the date 
of expiration of his certificate. 

Dower right exists in this state and in order to 
convey good title the wife must join her husband in 
executing all conveyances. It is likewise necessary 
that the husband join with the wife in conveying 
real property, held or owned by her at any time 
during the marriage. A married woman may ap- 
point a trustee toy her separate deed and has all the 
power to dispose of her property of every descrip- 
tion by deed, mortgage, lease, will or other instru- 
ment that husbands have to dispose of their prop- 
erty, and no more. If, however, a married woman 
be under eighteen years of age no conveyance made 
by her shall toe valid unless her husband unites 
therein. A married woman acknowledges an instru- 
ment the same as a male grantor and need not toy 
specific words state that she releases her dower. The 
language "grant" and "convey" conveys her dower 
right and any further right she* may have- in the 
estate.

Taxes. 

Due and payable between July 1 and October 1, 
annually. Delinquent October 1, annually. 

Taxes are assessed and collected by the cities and 
towns. The legislature apportions state and county 
taxes. Corporations are subject to franchise tax, so 
that stock in companies incorporated under the laws 
of Massachusetts are not liable to assessment direct, 
but pay to the state a tax substantially equivalent 
to the rate of taxation on other property. Certain 
religious, charitable and educational institutions are 
exempt. The assessment is as of May 1, and lien 
takes effect as of that date for each year's taxes. 
Real estate is not subject to double taxation.. That 
is, it is apportioned between mortgagor and ' mort- 
gagee, unless, as is usually the case, the mortgagor 
agrees to pay all taxes, In case of sale of real 
estate for non-payment of taxes, there is two year's 
right of redemption. 

Conveyances. 

To be valid conveyances of real estate must 'be 
under seal, a scroll being insufficient. Witnesses are 
not necessary. Release of dower must be explicitly 
stated in deed, wife's merely joining in being insuf- 
ficient.

LAWS OF MINNESOTA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June 10th, 1907, by Richardson 
& Day, of the Duluth Bar. 

Taxes. 

Lands are required by law to be assessed at their 
true value. 

Taxes on real estate for a given year become a 
lien thereon on the first day of May of that year, 
but as between grantor and grantee such lien does 
not attach until first Monday in January following 
from which time and until May 31st, the tax may 
be paid without penalty or interest. Taxes are pay- 
able to the county treasurer. On v June 1st, a penalty 
of 10 per cent attaches to taxes ^unpaid, and on the 
first Monday of January thereafter, the taxes yet 
unpaid, become delinquent, and a further penalty of 
5 per cent' attaches. 

If amount of tax exceeds $1.00, one-half may be 
paid prior to June 1st, and the ten per cent penalty 
on the ibalance, is postponed to November 1st, at- 
taching then to second half only in case of non-pay- 
ment prior to that date. While any taxes are due 
the state, a deed can not be recorded. 

On or before February 1st, the county auditor files 
the delinquent list with the county clerk, who within 



LAWS AND FORMS-MINNESOTA 347 

five days, issues notices for publication, equivalent 
bo a summons, that judgment will be taken against 
the land in default of answer, alter twenty days. 
Xu notice is required except the published notice de- 
scribing the several tracts and amount due on each. 
The tax sale, under the judgment, is had beginning 
on the second Monday of the following May, upon 
notice by the county auditor, posted at least ten 
days before sale and twice published in a newspaper, 
the first time at least fifteen days before sale. 

The land is sold to the bidder who will bid the 
amount due thereon at the lowest rate of interpst 
not greater than 12 p^r cent. It is bid in for the 
state at amount due and at rate of 12 per cent if 
no one bids such amount at a lower rate. 

SUibsequi nt taxes thereafter becoming delinquent 
may, before sale of land therefor, be paid by the 
holder of a tax certificate, and the same, bearing 
12 per cent interest, attaches to his certificate. After 
lapse of three years from date of tax sale, the holder 
of tax certificate may present same to the county 
auditor, who will issue a notice of expiration of re- 
demption to the person in whose name the land is 
assessed. Sixty days after service of such notice 
upon party to whom land is assessed, or upon occu- 
pant, or by publication in default of either the right 
of redemption is barred, and the tax title becomes ab- 
solute. The right to redeem exists until such notice 
is given. 

The tax certificate itself then becomes a deed en- 
lit led to record. It can not be recorded before ex- 
piration of redemption period. 

Lands sold to the state and not redeemed within 
three years are no longer redeemable, but such lands 
are subsequently sold as forfeited lands and a notice 
of expiration of redemption must be given by the 
purchaser substantially as in other tax sales, where- 
upon if not redeemed a deed is issued to the pur- 
chaser by the state. 

Personal taxes are due and payable January 1st, 
and become delinquent March 1st, whereupon a pen- 
alty of 10 per cent attaches, and they are placed 
in the hands of the sheriff for collection. Upon the 
sheriff's failure to collect, they are put in judgment 
at following term of court and no property is exempt 
from sale under execution issued thereon. 

Conveyances. 

All deeds must be attested by two subscribing wit- 
nesses. 

Husband and wife must join in all conveyances 
of real property. 

A married woman uniting with her husband in the 
execution of a deed, should be described in the 
acknowledgement as his wife, but no separate ex- 
amination in respect to release of dower is required.

LAWS OF NEBRASKA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May, 1907, by Tibbets, JMorey & 
Fuller, Real Estate and Corporation Lawyers, of Hast- 
ings, Nebraska. 

Taxes. 

Real estate is assessed once in four years, it its 
actual value, as a basis of valuation for taxation. 
Such assessment is subject to annual amendment to 
cover improvements. Taxes are levied in June of 
each year ; become a lien October 1st, and become 
delinquent May 1st of the following year, after which 
time they :bear ten per cent interest. The rate of 
taxation is fixed by state iboard, on ibasis of one- 
fifth of the actual valuation. Lands are sold in No- 
vember of each year for delinquent taxes. Two years 
thereafter (and until deed issued) are allowed the 
owner or lienor of such lands for redemption. There- 
upon, and at any time within three years there- 
after, if not redeemed, treasurer's deed may issue. 
Instead of taking deed, or upon the surrender of the 
same, the tax-purchaser may foreclose his lien, at 
any time within three years after the expiration of 
such redemption period. The owner of land, in such 
case, has an additional two years, after such fore- 
closure sale, to redeem therefrom. If the tax-pur- 
chaser fail to take out deed, or to commence fore- 
closure proceedings, within five years from such tax- 
sale, his lien becomes barred. If the tax-sale .be 
to a city, county or village, foreclosure proceedings 
may ibe commenced immediately. After action is com- 
menced, the land owner becomes liable for court costs, 
taxes, interest at 15 per cent, and 10' per cent at-

torney fee on amount of decree. 
Conveyances. 

Deeds are required to be attested by. at least one 
witness and to be acknowledged. Private) seals are 
not required. Dower and courtesy are abolished. If 
executed in sister state, such execution (njay be ac- 
cording" to the laws of this state, or of such sister 
state. 

Conveyance of homestead is void, unless signed 
and acknowledged by both husband and wife. Both 
should join in all conveyances. An acknowledgement 
within the state may be before notary public, jus- 
tice of the peace, judge or clerk of court; within a 
sister state, before any officer authorized by the laws 
of such sister state. If attested 'by the seal of such 
officer, no further authentication required. If such 
officer have no seal, then a certificate of magistracy, 
under the seal of proper certifying official, must be 
attached, verifying the signature of such officer and 
stating that such execution and acknowledgement are 
in conformity to laws of such sister state ; if exe- 
cuted in foreign country, may be made in accor- 
dance with the laws of such country, and acknowl- 
edged before notary public or consul or other repre- 
sentative of the United .States attested by his seal. 
All officials taking acknowledgements should give date 
of the expirations of commissions. No separate ex- 
amination of husband and wife is required in any 
case.

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 11th, 1907, .by Chas. B. 
Henderson, of Elko, Nev. 

Taxes. . 

Taxes are assessed between the date of the levy 
and the 1st Monday in September, in each year, on 
an actual cash value 'basis, and become a lien on 
real property the day they are levied. They are due 
and payable between the 1st Monday in November, 
and the 1st Monday in December, annually, to the ex- 
officio tax receiver. 

If not paid they become delinquent at the close of 
official business on the 1st Monday in December of 
each year, after which date a penalty of 10 per cent 
is added. A list of delinquent taxes must be com- 
pleted by the second Monday in December each year, 
and the auditor shall immediately cause a copy there- 
of to be printed in at least one newspaper published 
in his county, for not less than one, nor more than 
four weeks. And if no newspaper be published in the 
county, then a copy of said list shall be posted by the 
auditor in at least five conspicuous places within the 
county. The cost of publication is charged to the 
delinquent tax payer. 

On the third Monday in January next succeeding 
second Monday in December, the treasurer makes 
out in duplicate a certificate, dated the day of sale, 
stating (when known) the name of the person as- 
sessed, a description of the land sold, the amount 
paid therefor, that it was sold for taxes, giving 
amount and year of assessment, and specifying the 
time when the purchaser will be entitled to a deed, 
if the property is not sooner redeemed. 

iSix months are allowed within which to redeem 
after sale, at the expiration of which period, if prop- 
erty has not been redeemed, a tax deed issues and 
title becomes absolute after sale under judgment of 
the court. On all delinquent taxes which exceed the 
sum of three hundred dollars the district attorney 
must bring suit. 

Conveyances. 

Witnesses and private seals are not necessary to 
the validity of a deed. 

Husband and wife must join in conveying a home- 
stead, whether a declaration thereof has been filed 
or not, but the husband's name will suffice in con- 
veying community or separate property. A married 
woman can convey her own separate estate without 
the consent of her husband, but she must acknowl- 
edge such conveyance separate and apart from her 
husband and the certificate must state that fact. Her 
deed must be acknowledged; it cannot be proved by 
a subscribing witness.

dant, brother, sister, adopted child, lineal descen- 
dant of any adopted child, wife, or widow of a son 
or husband of a daughter of a decrdent. or to or for 
charitable, educational, or religious -bodies in whose 
hands such property will be exempt by law from tax- 
ation, or to a city or town in this State for public 
purposes. The tax applies to bonds and stocks physic- 
ally within the State belonging to a non-resident. 
The tax is a lien on all real estate of the deceased 
till paid. The probate court has jurisdiction of all 
questions relating to the tax. 

Transfers of stock in national banks in this State, 
or of stock in domestic corporations belonging to a 
deceased non-resident, shall not <be made until any 
such tax payable thereon is satisfied, and depositaries 
of securities belonging to a deceased non-resident are 
required to notify the state treasurer before deliv- 
ering up the securities to a foreign executor or

fore a justice of the peace, notary public, commis-

LAWS OF NEW YORK 

Relative To 
TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June 1st, 1907, toy John T. Booth, 
of 271 Broadway, New York. 

Taxes. 

The general laws of the state relating to taxa- 
tion are contained- in what is known as the "Tax 
Law," which was enacted in 1896. 

This law applies generally to all parts of the 
state, except the City of New York, in which many 
of the provisions of the tax law are modified by 
the Oreater New York charter, particularly as to 
time and mode of assessment and the time when 
taxes are payable. 

All real property within tne state, and all person- 
al property situated or owned within the state, is 
taxable, unless exempt from taxation by law. Real 
estate 'is taxable in the city, town or district where 
it is situated, and personal property in the city, 
town or district where its owner, if a resident of 
the state, resides. 

Non-residents of the state doing business in the 
state are taxed on the capital invested in such busi- 
ness as personal property at the place where such 
business is carried on. 

In the City of New York, the assessment rolls of 
all real and personal property are made up between 
September 1st and December ,1st. The rolls or tax 
books are open between the second Monday of Jan- 
uary and the 31st of March during which time ap- 
plications may -be made to correct assessments. Taxes 
are payable on October 1st following and up to 
December 1st, after which interest accrues. If not 
paid by January 15th, warrants for their collection 
will ibe issued, under which property may be levied 
upon. 

In other parts of the state, outside of the City 
of New York, the assessment rolls are made up be- 
tween May 1st and July 1st, and are open for cor- 
rection from August 1st to the third Tuesday of 
August. Taxes are payable on or before February 
15th following. 

Corporations are taxable for state purposes, and 
are also taxable in the cities or towns in which 
they are located. The state tax is comparatively 
small and is based upon the rate of dividends paid, 
if any, or if not, upon the appraised value of the 
capital stock. 

Corporations engaged in manufacturing within the 
state are exempt from the state tax to the extent of 
the amount of their capital employed in manufact- 
uring. 

Corporations are required to file reports with the 
state comptroller on or before November 15 th in 
each year, upon which report is ibased the state 
taxes 

In the City of New York, corporations must file 
with the city tax commissioners between the sec- 



364 LAWS AND FORMS— NEW YORK 

ond Monday of January and the 31st of March state- 
ments upon which is based their city taxes. 

Domestic corporations are required to pay an or- 
ganization tax of one-twentieth of one per cent when 
incorporating. Foreign corporations doing .business 
in the state are required to pay a license fee of 
one-eighth of one per cent on the amount of Capital 
invested within the state. 

Property passing by will or the law of descent 
or distribution, is subject to Certain taxes varying 
from one to five per Cent according to the amount 
of the estate, and the degree of relationship. This 
tax is fixed in the proceedings .in the surrogate's 
Court, in which the estate is administered. 
Conveyances. 
A deed of conveyance must he made under seal, 
and to entitle it to be recorded it must toe acknowl- 
edged. No witness to the deed is necessary. The 
seal may be either a wafer, or a scroll of the let- 
ters "L». S." or the word "seal" may toe written. 

A deed of conveyance made toy a married man 
must be joined in by his wife, in order .to . trans- 
fer the wife's right of dower. 

A married woman may convey real estate owned 
by her without Ifer husband joining in the deed. 

In conveyances made by husband and wife, the 
wife need not make a separate acknowledgement 
apart from her husband ; both may join in the same 
acknowledgement. 

The following is a correct form of acknowledge- 
ment toy an individual or individuals :

The private examination of the wife may be taken 
by any official authorized by the laws of this state

other instruments. Such examination and certificate 
thereof must conform to the laws of this state. It is 
the duty of the official, when taking the private ex-

and see that the provisions of the statute are strictly

and Legal Directory, June 17, 1907, by Rourke, Kvello

Taxes. 

By uniform rule taxes on tooth real and personal 
property are assessed as of April 1st, are due and 
payable in one installment, to the treasurer on Decem- 
ber 1st, and as between grantee and grantor become 
a lien on real estate December 1st. 

Real property taxes, if unpaid, ibecome delinquent 
March 1st on which date a 3 per cent penalty is 
added. Additional penalties of 3 per cent April 1st 
and June 1st following, and on November 1st follow- 
ing, if still unpaid, a further penalty of 5 per cent 
attaches. 

After publication of delinquent lists in a newspaper 
for three consecutive weeks, the first publication to 
be not less than nineteen days prior to date of sale, 
all real estate is sold for non-payment of taxes on 
the first Tuesday of December of each year at public 
auction, to the bidder who will pay the total amount 
of taxes and costs and who will agree to accept the 
lowest rate % of interest from the 'date of sale on the 
amount of such taxes, penalties and costs so paid by 
him, not exceeding 24 per cent per annum. 

Personal property taxes, if unpaid, become delin- 
puent March 1st on which date a 5 per cent penalty 
is added together with 1 per cent per month interest, 
on the amount until paid. Three years are allowed 
in which to redeem land from tax sale, at the end of 
which period, if unredeemed, a tax deed will issue, 
provided ninety days notice of expiration of re- 
demption period has been given but no deed will issue 
until after notice. Title to property becomes absolute 
three years after deed has been recorded, Taxes are 
a perpetual lien upon real estate after they become 
due. A tax deed is conclusive evidence of the truth 
of all the facts therein recited, and prima facie evi- 
dence of the regularity of all proceedings from the 
valuation of the land ^by the assessor up to the exe- 
cution of the deed. The sale of land for taxes is not 
invalid on account of such lands having been listed 
or charged on the duplicate in any other name than 
that of the rightful owner. 

The right of the purchaser at tax sales cease abso- 
lutely and are deemed forfeited and extinguished six 
years from and after the date of the certificate, unless 
possession is taken or a tax deed executed and de- 
livered prior thereto. 

Conveyances* 

No witnesses nor private seals necessary. 
Notaries must give in their certificates the date of 
the expiration of their commission. 

The wife need not join in a conveyance of land 
belonging to her husband, nor 3s it necessary that the 
husband shall join in conveyance of wife's land, pro- 
vided in either case that the land is not a homestead.

LAWS OF VIRGINIA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 15th, 1907, by Sands & 
Williams, of Richmond Bar, Richmond, Virginia. 

Taxes. 

State taxes are assessed as of February 1st, about 
75 per cent of the actual value of the property, are pay- 
able to the city or county treasurer in one installment. 
If not paid on or before November 30th a penalty of 
5 per cent attaches and if the same with the taxes 
are not paid -by July 1st following, the property is 
sold in the following manner. 

It is provided that .the clerk shall make a copy of 
the delinquent list, and shall deliver it to the treasurer 
of his county or corporation. Within thirty days, the 
treasurer shall post a printed copy thereof in at least 
five public places in each ward, if in a city, and if in 
a county, at the front door of the court house on the 
first day of the county court, and also a printed copy 
thereof in at least five public places in each magis- 
terial district in the county. He is also to distribute 
other printed copies in such ways as he may deem 
proper to secure general publicity of the time and 
place of sale of lands therein mentioned as delinquent. 

Or, in lieu of thus posting the printed copies in the 
public places aibove mentioned, the auditor of public 
accounts may direct a copy of the list to !be inserted 
once in a newspaper published in the county or city 
where the delinquent lands are situated. 

To each copy thus printed and published, the treas- 
urer shall attach a notice that the real estate or so 
much as shall be necessary to satisfy the taxes, levies, 
interests, costs and charges due thereon, will be sold 
at public auction on the first day of the following 
November or December court, between the hours of 
10 a. m. and 4 p. m., in front of the court house, un- 
less the amount due shall be previously paid to the 
treasurer. 

A period of two years from date of sale is allowed 
in which to redeem, after which, if redemption has 
not been made, tax deeds issue and the title becomes 
absolute. 

It is, however, provided that if the deed is not ob- 
tained within a year after right to call for same ac- 
crues, then the former owner, his heirs or assigns, 
may redeem land at any time before the deed is ac- 
tually made. If an individual does not purchase at 
the sale conducted as outlined, the property is bought 
in by the state through its officers, and when so ac- 
quired an individual may at any time before the taxes 



L, VWS AND FORMS— VIRGINIA 391 

and penalties are paid, file an application for its 
purchase, and after four months notice to the present 
owner of record, as well as the owner at the time of 
the delinquency, acquire a deed to the property, pay- 
ing of course, all taxes and charges including a fee 
to the clerk for the deed. 

City and county taxes vary in amount in different 
localities. 

Conveyances. 

No witnesses are necessary to the validity of real 
estate conveyances but seals must itae attached thereto. 
Natural persons may seal toy making a scroll with a 
pen, or toy printed scroll. In the case of a corpora- 
tion, impression of its corporate seal must be made 
upon the paper, and in both cases the seal should be 
acknowledged in the body of the instrument, as "Wit- 
ness the folowing signatures and seals." 

Husband and wife should join in all conveyances of 
real estate, except where the deed is made to a 
trustee to secure to the vendor the purchase money, 
or where a deed of trust or mortgage is executed for 
the purchase money, or part thereof, of the property 
conveyed to the grantor or mortgagor therein, in 
which case the signature of the grantor, or mortgagor, 
alone is necessary. 

Wife's acknowledgement is no different from that 
of any other person. She does not have to acknowl- 
edge the release of her dower as the acknowledgement 
of the deed is sufficient.

piration of the commission, tout failure to state does 
not void the acknowledgement, nor affect the validity 
of the deed, or other conveyance. 

(Conveyance of Real Estate toy a Corporation) 

There is no implied authority in any particular of- 
ficer to convey its real estate. It is usually done in 
pursuance of a resolution by the board of directors 
in which some officer or other person is especially 
authorized to convey. The resolution should toe cited 
in the conveyance itself, and the corporate seal should 
be attached toy the secretary or whomsoever, und^r 
the laws, is custodian of the seal. The usual form in 
the final clause in the deed is: "WITNESS the cor- 
porate signature of said company toy its 

president, (or other officer as the case may be) and its 

corporate seal attested toy its secretary (or 

whomsoever may be the custodian of the corporate

LAWS OF WASHINGTON 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, May 23rd, 1907, by William H. 
Pratt, of Taeoma. 

Taxes. 

Due and payable on the first Monday in February 
annually. Delinquent June 1, annually. 

The fiscal year .begins on the first day of April, 
and taxes are payable the succeeding year on real 
estate to the county treasurer, as follows : On or 
before the first day of February, after which they 
become delinquent and bear interest at the rate of 
1>5 per cent, provided, however, if the taxes are equal 
to one dollar, one-half may be paid on or before the 
31st day of May and the remainder will be extended 
without interest and may be paid on or before the 
30th day of November following; but if the remaining 
half is not paid on or before the 30 th day of Novem- 
ber, then it becomes delinquent and bears interest at 
the rate of fifteen per cent per annum. A discount of 
3 per cent is allowed on taxes assessed against real 
estate if paid prior to March 15th of the year in which 
they are due and payable. After taxes on real estate 
are delinquent, the county treasurer is authorized to 
issue and sell certificates of such delinquency to any- 
one who desires to purchase the same, which certifi- 
cates bear interest at the rate of fifteen per cent per 
annum. Certificates of delinquency are prima facie 
evidence that the property described was subject to 
taxation at the time the same was assessed; that the 
property was assessed as required by law ; that the 
taxes or assessments were not paid at any time be- 
fore the issuance of the certificate ; and that such cer- 
tificate shall have the same force and effect as a 
judgment execution and sale of and against the prem- 
ises included therein." Three years after the first 
day of December next following the date of delin- 
quency, the holder of the certificate is required to 
give notice to the owner of the property, that he will 
apply to the superior court of the county in which 
the property is situated for a judgment foreclosing 
the lien against the property mentioned ; and the cer- 
tificate holder is authorized to proceed by an action in 
court to foreclose his lien for the taxes and interest 
and have the property sold and thus clear the title. 
When any property remains on the assessment roll 
for which no certificate of delinquency has been sold, 
the treasurer is required to issue a certificate to the 
county or municipality entitled thereto, and deliver 
the certificate to the clerk of the county, and the same 
proceedings are to be had in the courts to obtain title 
as in the case of sale of the certificate to an individual. 

Personal taxes become due and payable after thirty 
day's notice, given in February after the levy of taxes, 
and if not paid at the expiration of thirty days, the 
treasurer is authorized to distrain the personal prop- 
erty and sell the same for the payment of the taxes. 



IyAWS AND FORMS— WASHINGTON 393 

Anyone owning real estate in the county may notify 
the treasurer to charge his personal taxes to his real 
estate, and can then pay the same at the same time 
and same manner as he pays his taxes on his real 
estate. The treasurer also has the right to charge the 
personal taxes to the real estate of the party who 
owes the personal taxes, on the assessment roll, and 
thus make the personal taxes a lien on the realty. 

Conveyances. 

No witnessess or private seals are necessary to the 
validity of deeds. 

The husband and wife must join in the conveyance 
of all real estate which has .been acquired subsequent 
to marriage. 

All property acquired by either spouse prior to 
marriage, or acquired by inheritance subsequent to 
marriage, is designated separate property and may 
be conveyed by either without the other joining in 
the transfer.

LAWS OF WEST VIRGINIA 

Relative To 

TAXES AND CONVEYANCES. 

Prepared expressly for Montgomery's Real Estate 
and Legal Directory, June 1st, 1907, by Williams, 
Scott and Lovett, of Huntington. 

Taxes. 

The assessment of taxes ibegins April 1st annually, 
and should toe completed toy June 20th. All property 
shall be assessed at its true and actual value, that 
is to say, at the price at which such property would 
sell if voluntarily offered for sale by the owner 
thereof, upon such terms as such property, the value 
of which is sought to toe ascertained, is usually sold, 
and not the price which might be realized if such 
property was sold at a forced sale. A special as- 
sessment of real estate has toeen made for the years 
190 6, 1907 and 1908, and the values thereby ascer- 
tained will toe used for purposes of taxation till the 
year 1909 ; beginning with the year 1909, all real 
estate, as well as personal property, will toe assessed 
annually at the true and actual value, as aforesaid. 

As 'between the grantor and grantee, taxes on real 
estate are a lien as of the first day of April of each 
year. 

The sheriff is directed to commence the collection 
yearly on August 1st, or as soon thereafter as he 
receives copies of the land and personal property 
books. In practice the collection usually toegins about 
October 1st. While the sheriff, as ex-officio treas- 
urer, is directed to collect, no demand for taxes is 
necessary, and it is the duty of every person sub- 
ject to taxation to attend to the assessment and 
payment of taxes within the time limited toy law. 

They are payable at one time, and no provision is 
made for payment toy installments. 

The sheriff is ex-officio treasurer of the county, 
and of all school districts therein, and to him all 
state, county and district taxes must toe paid. 

A discount of two and ope-half per centum is made 
when taxes are paid on or before the last day of 
November. 

They are returned delinquent on or before the first 
Monday in June of the year succeeding the year for 
which they are assessed, with interest added at the 
rate of twelve per centum until they are paid. If 
real estate is redeemed after it is returned delinquent; 
interest will toe added at the rate of twelve per centum 
per annum, and when redeemed after a sale, a com- 
mission of five per centum to the sheriff, costs of sale, 
and such taxes as may have been paid thereon by the 
purchaser, with interest on the same, will be added. 
Before it is returned delinquent, notice is given toy 
publication for two weeks in two newspapers, and 
posting at the front door of the court house. 



LAWS AND FORMS— W^ST VIRGINIA 395 



On or before November 1st in each year, the auditor 
of state certifies to the sheriff of every county the 
real estate delinquent for non-payment of taxes in 
any previous year. Within ten days thereafter, the 
sheriff causes a notice of sale to he published for four 
successive weeks in a newspaper and posted for the 
same time at the front door of the court house, and 
on the first day of the next November or December 
term of the circuit or county court, whichever may ,be 
held first, or if no term of either be held in said 
months, then on the second Monday in December next 
thereafter, the real estate is sold for the said taxes, 
interest, costs and commission, at public auction at 
the front door of the court house. 

Real estate may be redeemed within one year from 
the sale, by paying to the purchaser the amount paid 
by him thereon and such additional taxes as may 
have been paid ,by the purchaser, with interest on said 
purchase money and taxes at the rate of twelve per 
centum per annum from the time they were paid, or 
if the state purchased, by paying" into the state 
treasury, within one year after the sale, the amount 
of all taxes with interest and costs. An infant, 
married woman or insane person, whose real estate 
may have been sold during such disability may re- 
deem the same within one year after the removal of 
such disability, 'by paying the taxes, purchase money, 
interest and costs, and such additional taxes as may 
have been made by the purchaser, with interest on 
the said items at the rate of six per centum per an- 
num from the time the same were paid. 

A deed may be made to the purchaser of land 
sold by the sheriff for taxes, after the expiration 
of one year from the sale, by the clerk of the county 
court. 

Title becomes absolute after the expiration of one 
year after the sale, subject to the saving as to per- 
sons under disability. 

When the state is the purchaser, title vests abso- 
lutely at the expiration of one year, but the land 
must be sold by the state in a suit in equity insti- 
tuted by the commissioner of school lands for the 
county, and at any time before a final decree in that 
suit, the former owner may redeem. 

Conveyances. 

A signature to a deed need not be witnessed. A 
deed must be executed under seal, and the seal of 
a natural person may be made by affixing to the 
signature a scroll, or adopting as a seal any scroll, 
written, printed or engraved on the paper by another. 

A wife must join in a conveyance of real estate of 
the husband, in order to release her right of dower 
therein. A husband conveys his right to courtesy by 
joining with the wife in the conveyance, and a deed 
by a married woman to her real estate is void un- 
less the husband joins. 

A married woman living separate and apart from 
her husband, or having a husband who is non 
compos mentis, may convey real estate which is her 
sole and separate property, if such facts be recited 
in the deed, and if it is proven to the satisfaction of 
the officer taking the acknowledgement that it is her 



396 LAWS AND FORMS— WEST VIRGINIA 

sole and separate property, and she is living separate 
and apart from her husband, or that her husband is 
non compos mentis, and it is stated in the certificate 
of such acknowledgement that all of said facts were 
shown to the satisfaction of the person taking the 
same. 

The acknowledgement of the wife may be taken 
together with or separately from her husband. If 
both acknowledge the writing at the same time, the 
certificate shall be used as hereafter shown, and if 
she acknowledge it separately, the same certificate 
shall be used, except that in lieu of the words be- 
tween the stars, the words should be, "do certify that 
the wife of " When the acknowl- 
edgement of a married woman has been so taken 
and certified, the writing operates to convey her 
dower in the real estate embraced in the writing 
and all interest of every sort therein. 

The following form of acknowledgement is prescrib- 
ed by the code when husband and wife acknowledge 
-a deed of conveyance jointly :

The certificate of acknowledgement of a corpora-

case may be), and that the said writing was signed 
and sealed by him in behalf of said corporation (or 
association) by its authority duly given. And the

act and deed of said corporation (or association)." 

Acknowledgements are taken before a justice, notary 
public, recorder, prothonatary or clerk of any court 
within the United States, or commissioner appointed 
by the governor of this state. When executed with- 
•out the United States, they may be taken toefore a

the government of the United States, to, any foreign 
country, or the proper officer of any ' court of such 
country, or mayor or other ' chief magistrate of any 
city, town or corporation, and certified under the 
official seal of any such person. If an acknowledge- 
ment be before a notary without the state, he shall 
certify the same under his official seal. 

A deed is necessary to convey real estate or any 
interest therein for more than five years. It must 
be acknowledged in order to toe recorded, and is void 
as to creditors and subsequent purchasers, for val- 
uable consideration without notice, until duly admit- 
ted to record in the county in which the real estate 
embraced in the deed lies. 

It is not necessary that a notary public, certify- 
ing an acknowledgement within this state, shall state 
in his certificate the date of expiration of his com- 
mission ; nor is it necessary that a notary public 
in another state, so far as the law of West Virginia 
is concerned, when certifying acknowledgements to toe 
used in! West Virginia, shall state in his certificate 
the date of expiration of his commission, unless the 
law of the state in which the acknowledgement is 
taken requires him so to do.

otherwise agreed between them. Taxes due when 
warrant for collection is in hands of the treasurer, 
which may be from .December 1st to third Monday

ond Monday in February in one installment, to the

may ripen into a good title in five years after record- 
ing of defective deed if the grantee in tax deed shall

two years after such recording, and shall have actually 
and continuously maintained such possession to the 
end of such period of five years. Tax certificates

of real estate, except in conveyances of real estate 
owned by wife alone or in mortgages to secure bal- 
ance of purchase price. Acknowledgement of hus- 
band and wife may be taken together, using same

HAY MEASURE. — About 500 cubic feet of well set- 
tled hay, or about 700 of new mown hay, will make 
a ton. To estimate amount of hay in mow — ten cubic 
yards of meadow hay weigh a ton. When the hay is 
taken out of old stacks, 8 or 9 yards will make a 
ton. Eleven or twelve cubic yards of clover, when dry, 
make a ton.

TO ESTIMATE EAR CORN IN CRIB.-— Allow 2V 2 
cubic feet to a bushel. 



GRAIN MEASURE. 

The standard U. ,S. -bushel is the "Winchester bush- 
el," which is in cylinder form, 18 y 2 inches in diame- 
ter and 8 inches deep. It contains 2,150.4 cubic inches. 

TO FIND THE QUANTITY OF GRAIN ANY BIN WILL HOLD. 

Rule. — Multiply the height, length and ibreadth to- 
gether in inches and -divide by 2.150.4; the quotient will 
be the numfber of toushels. 



SHORT BUT ACCURATE RULE FOR SAME. 

Multiply length, -breadth and height in feet together ; 
multiply this by 45 and divide by '56 ; or, to sim- 
plify : multiply by 4 and divide by 5. 

Example. — A bin 16 feet long, 8 feet wide and 14 
feet high will hold how many bushels? 

16x8x4—1792. 

1792x45—80640. 

80640-^-56—1440. Ans. 1440 Bushels. 



410 MISCELLANEOUS INFORMATION 



TO FIND THE QUANTITY OF GRAIN WHEN HEAPED ON THE 
FLOOR IN THE SHAPE OF A CONE. 

Rule. — Square the depth and square the slant height 
in inches. Take their difference and multiply by depth 
and this product by .0005. The result will be the con- 
tents in bushels. 

The following is excellent for finding the interest 
on any principal for any number of days. When the 
principal contains cents, point off four places from the 
right of the result to express the interest in dollars 
and cents. When the principal contains dollars only, 
point off two places : 

4 per cent — Multiply principal :by the number of 
days to run; divide by 90. 

5 per cent — Multiply 'by number of days and divide 
by 72. 

6 per cent' — Multiply and divide .by 60.

FARM LOANS 



More money is being invested in Farm 
loans at present than ever before. 

The Loan Agent to compete success- 
fully finds a DIRECT connection for 
cheap and elastic funds imperative. 
Moneys obtained through a middle man 
leave no profit and the funds of the large 
life insurance companies, while cheap, are 
surrounded with too many restrictions and 
red tape to be desirable. 

The funds of savings banks, large pri- 
vate investors, and holders of trust funds 
control the best farm loan business today. 

4 'Bonds and Mortgages, ' ' Chicago, is the 
oldest farm loan publication in this coun- 
try and reaches the best class of buyers of 
these securities whose confidence it enjoys. 
A number of its subscribers invest from 
$100,000 to $500,000 annually in farm 
mortgages. It claims to offer the quick- 
est and most effective introduction to the 
best buyers of farm loans in this country.
