Exchequer: King's Remembrancer: Particulars of Account of Land and Assessed Taxes
This series is made up of the particulars of accounts for three groups of taxes administered centrally by the Board of Taxes and locally by county commissioners: the Land Tax, from 1692; the assessed taxes, a group of taxes assessed upon the possession or occupation of certain kinds of property, beginning with the window tax in 1696; and the income tax, which began under Pitt in 1799 and from 1803 to 1816 is more properly known as the property and income tax.
The lack of individual assessments among the surviving documents in this series limits their value for genealogical and biographical research. Large numbers of seals, of commissioners, justices of the peace and so on, have survived in varying states of preservation.
The documents are stored in bags, arranged alphabetically by county and in chronological order.
