Series Description

The General Property Tax Books are the final tax records for the municipality, arranged on a city-wide basis. The information in these volumes varies over time though they will generally include the names of individuals and companies, amount of assessment or tax, and payments. Some of the earlier books do give race, out-of-town residence, occasional occupation, and property improvements. After 1812 the volumes begin to include more information on items such as furniture, plate, horses, carriages, wagons, special fees and taxes (such as for roads, bridges, court, and the poor), abatements, adjustments, stock-in-trade, securities, and bank stock. These volumes do not represent a complete series and should be consulted with the field assessment records (BRG4-2) and the Appeal Tax Court (BRG. 5). The complete series of records listed below, unless otherwise stated, are city-wide volumes. A large number of the books have been microfilmed; the BCA number following the description is the microfilm reel number. An alphabetical name index to the earliest records has been published: Richard J. Cox, ed., A Name Index to the Baltimore City Tax Records. 1798-1808, of the Baltimore City Archives, Publications of the Baltimore City Archives, no. 4 (Baltimore: Baltimore City Archives and Records Management Office, 1981).
