1864 Elgin "Special War Tax" List
"The Solid Men of Elgin in 1864"
From History of Kane Co., Ill 1908, Pg. 701
(Contributed by Cynthia Nelson (Nelcyn@foxvalley.net)


"Below we give, as a matter of Curiosity and interest, the incomes for 1864, on which the 5% special war tax was paid by such of our citizens as were supposed to be liable to it. It will be remembered that $600 of income were exempt from taxation, as well as sundry payments for repairs, taxes, etc., so that the amount set opposite the names is only the excess above exemptions. There were undoubtably many others whose income rendered them liable to taxation but who escaped by the neglect of the assessor or the evasions of themselves:"
