Your Tax Statements
It is the policy of this bank to be
of service to its patrons at all times.
In line with that policy, this bank,
about eleven years ago, instituted a
service whereby it would procure for
its patrons, and others in this vicinity,
tax statements; would check over
these statements to see that they
were correct, return them for cor
rection if necessary, and would there
after receive payments for taxes, for
ward deposit slips and tax statements
to the sheriff, procure and file the tax
receipts, and pay out the tax money
on checks drawn by the sheriff. To
better perform this service and keep
accurate records, a set of books was
kept by the bank so that any tax
payer could and can at any time as
certain the exact amount of taxes
paid in any one year by such tax
payer. Each year the bank has col
lected approximately $85,000.00 or
more of taxes.
All of the foregoing services were
performed by this bank without one
cent of expense to either the taxpay
er or the tax collector, notwithstand
ing the fact that the service saved
many dollars each year to those who
took advantage of it.
The sheriff and other officers of the
county have recently ordered that
this service be discontinued, thus
making it necessary for each taxpay
er to hereafter attend to these mat
