ENOUGH TO KILL
THIS TAX TITLE
Beoause Tax Levied on Lot Was
Thirty-Seven Mills Too Highi
Title Is i Declared Invalid . by
Jodge Cantenbein In State
Circuit Court. .
, Because , tha taxes ' levied on a lot
which was sold delinquent by the sheriff
were STH mills too much, the tax title
was declared Invalid by Judge Gaaten
beln In the state circuit oourt -this
morning. . ,;' , " "',.
. The decree waa given by the Judge In
deciding the .suit for ths Victor Land
company against J. . J. FlUgarald to
quiet title to a lot In Montavllla, The
lot waa originally Owned by F. Newhaua,
who sold It to FtUgsrald. In ths mean
time It was sold to ths Victor Land
company by the sheriff at a tax sals for
17.40 delinquent taxes. Both ths land
company and Fitzgerald - claimed the
property, and suit was . brought to de
termine which title waa good. :
rfThs - certtllcate-of thsr sheriffs-sale
shews that ths levy waa- for cltv taxes
as well as for state, county, school and
other taxes. Because the nrooertv In
102. when the sale waa made, was not
within ths limit of any city or Incor
porated town, the levy of city taxea was
declared to be Illegal, and the property
could not lawfully be aold for sny olty
taxes, judge uantennein said:
"While the total Illegal city tax
amounted to but I7H mills, or
cants, this amount Is largs enough to
render ths sals Invalid. The rule la
that if the excessive amount Is as much
ss ths smallest coin authorised by law.
the sale la void. In this oounty ths
smallest coin authorised by lew Is I
cent and consequently a sals for taxes
which exceeds what they ahonld legally
be br 1 sent or more. Is necessarily
voiu. . i ..... : .i
"Moreover the assessment waa made
to Fred Nauhaus, while the name of the
owner of the land waa Fred Newhaua
The name given In tha assessment roll
nust be the correct one, and any error
Judge Gantenbeln decreed that Flts-
gerald la the owner of the property In
