West Yorkshire Tax Valuation 1910

Ancestry have added the West Yorkshire Tax Valuation Records for 1910 to their collection.

The Finance Act of 1910 imposed new duties on land, including a tax on the increase in a property’s value over time. These taxes required that properties be assigned a current value, which led to the creation of these tax valuation records from West Yorkshire.

This collection contains field books prepared by the valuation offices, the field books include details on the properties along with names of owners and occupiers, street location, and value of the land typically found in the valuation summary books.

These records can be search here.
