Description

These records provide information relating to ratepayers and rateable properties for the Einasleigh Divisional Board, the Einasleigh Shire Council, and the Etheridge Shire Council. Up to 1910 valuations and rates were kept in separate books. Between 1910 and 1963 valuations and rates were kept together, and from 1964 onwards, together in ledger card format.

Information provided may include:
Rate books (1882-1910): date; division/subdivision (where applicable); valuation number (annual running number, different each year); occupier's name and occupation; owner's name and residence; description and situation of the rateable property; net annual value; general rate; special rate; arrears from last year (number in last year rate book, amount); total; particulars of rates received (details of first and second payments: folio, amount); arrears on 31 Dec, and remarks. Areas included: Gold Fields, Homesteads, Market Gardens, Business and Residence Areas, Quartz Crushing and Gold Saving Machines, Gold Mining Leases, and Pastoral Runs, and from 1888 also Cumberland, Tailing Areas, Goldsmith's Creek and Charleston, Gilberton, Castleton, Dam Sites and Water Rights, Mt Hogan, and Percyville. From 1897 rates written off were added.

Valuation registers (1882-1910): valuation number (annual running number, different each year); occupier's name and occupation; owner's name and residence; description and situation of rateable property (county, parish, town, street/road, number of portion, section, allotment, subdivision, re-subdivision); area, in acres, roods and perches); rental details, if any; capital value/buildings (fully improved, not fully improved, unimproved); net annual rateable value; land, exclusive of buildings; buildings, exclusive of land, and total. Valuations were not conducted every year. The 1882-1886 volume contains Dairy Rates 1890-1897.

After 1943 there are no more separations by Divisions and no more annual Summaries.
