Making Returns

Making Returns.

One word of advice to persons as to filling up their forms. If any should feel disposed to refuse let them think of the penalty; if any should be inclined to allow the time for sending in their schedules to pass without doing so let them have a care lest they should suffer the punishment for wilful neglect; if any should be inclined to fill up the schedules carelessly, as a matter of no great consequence, they would do well to bear in mind that omissions will have to be supplied, and possibly the non-insertion of some assets, through sheer want of thought, might appear to be the result of an attempt to wilfully evade assessment of property. The easiest and safest course will be to take trouble in writing in the schedules all particulars required, being careful to give names, addresses, and description of land fully and correctly. The directions on each form should be read and attended to, and those who do this will not find anything very puzzling in compiling a full and true return of their property, whether personal or real, although possibly at first sight a schedule may appear a rather formidable document to complete.
