Bucks County, PA Tax Lists

Bucks County, PA Tax Lists Compiler: Retrospect Publishing
The PA Archives, often referred to as the Pennsylvania Published Archives, was published by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania over many decades from the mid 1800's to the early 1900's. Volume XIII of the Third Series contains various tax lists for Bucks County. These tax lists include the State Tax for 1779; Supply Tax for 1781 and 1782; List of Taxables for 1783; Return of Land Tax of 1784 and Funding Tax for 1785, 1786 and 1787. These tax lists were compiled by the Commonwealth for their permanent preservation.

Tax payers are listed by township and often as in the case of the State and Funding Tax the number of acres, horses, cattle, and servants. The Land Return Tax of 1784 not only lists the number of dwellings and the acres per taxable, but also the number of white and black inhabitants. As a result this return gives a complete census for Bucks County in 1784. With the use of the Retrospector Viewer you will be able to search for any tax payer listed.
