Lawyer & Physician Practice Tax List (1826-1851)

On February 7, 1825, the Ohio General Assembly decided to tax lawyers and physicians.  The court of common pleas was to tax them five to fifty dollars, but not until they had practiced for two years, and the law did not take effect until March 1, 1826.  On February 22, 1830, the law was radically changed.  The township assessors were to make a list of the lawyers and physicians and report to the county commissioners, who, at their June session of each years, were to estimate their income and tax them not exceeding five dollar per year.  The law remained in effect until the Ohio Constitution of 1851 went into effect.
