Whereas, The sum of two hundred and 
sixty-six thousand, two hundred and sixty- 
one ($266,261.62) dollars and sixty-two 
cents, as a supposed surplus arising in the 
Hscal year 1900, of income received over

April, 1901, passed over and paid to the 
Commissioners of Finance to be credited to 
the General Sinking Fund.

rreamble. 



And whereas, It aj)pears by a recent 
decision of the Court of Appeals that a 
portion of tlie income "collected in said 
fiscal year, and which went to make up and 
swell said supposed surplus, was erroneously 
levied on and collected from the taxpayers 
in the Annex and should be returned to 
them." 

Wherefore, It appears that there was no 
such amount of surplus for said fiscal year 
properly applicable to the Sinking Fund, 
but that the true amount of any "surplus" 
was only what would remain after deduct- 
ing the amount so illegally collected, and 
consequently the said payment over to the 
Commissioners of Finance of said sum of 
two hundred and sixty-six thousand two 
hundred and sixty-one ($266,261.62) dollars 
and sixty-two cents, w^as and to that extent 
under said decision became erroneous. 

Therefore be it resolved by the Mayor 
and City Council of Baltimore, That the 
Commissioners of Finance be and they are 
hereby directed to return to the general 
City Treasury so much of the said sum of 
two hundred and sixty-six thousand two 
hundred and sixty-one ($266,261.62) dollars 
and sixty-two cents as may be necessary 
to refund to the taxpay<3rs of the Annex 
the amount which under the said decision 
of the Court of Appeals have been illegally 
collected as aforesaid. 

And be it further resolved. That it shall 
be the duty of the Appeal Tax Court to 
examine into all claims for a return of taxes 
alleged by the taxpayers aforesaid to have 
been paid in error, and if, upon examina-

tion by the Appeal Tax Court, it shall 
clearly appear that such claim or claims is 
or are well founded, and that the taxes 
have been paid erroneously, the said Ap- 
peal Tax Court may direct the Register by 
order or orders in writing to refund or 
repay the same, and shall reject all such 
claims as may be considered doubtful or 
not well founded, and. said Register is 
hereby authorized and directed, upon receipt 
of said orders as aforesaid, from the Appeal 
Tax Court, to pay to the person or persons 
named in such orders the amounts respec- 
tively found to be due to them from the 
City of Baltimore by the Apx)eal Tax Court 
after investigation as aforesaid, provided, 
that the production and surrender of the 
original receipted tax bill for the year 1900 
shall be prima facie evidence that the per- 
son so producing and surrendering said bill 
is the person entitled to receive the refund 
on sucli bill. Nothing herein contained 
shall prevent the Appeal Tax Court from 
requiring further evidence to establish the 
right of the person to such refund.

RESOLUTIONS 

PASSED AT THE ANNUAL SESSION 

I9OI-I9O2. 



No. 1. 



A resolution directing the Commissioners of Finance to return to the gen- 
eral city treasury so much of the supposed "surplus" for the year 1900 
as under the recent decision of the Court of Appeals appears to have 
been illegally collected from the taxpayers of the Annex. 

Whereas, The sum of two hundred and sixty- six 
thousand two hundred and sixty-one (8266,261.62) dol- 
lars and sixty-two cents as a supposed "surplus arising 
in the fiscal year 1900 of income received over the 
expenditures for said year" was in April, 1901, passed 
over and paid "to the Commissioners of Finance to be 
credited to the General Sinking Fund;" and, 

Whereas, It appears by a recent decision of the 
Court of Ai)peals that a portion of the income collected 
in said fiscal year, and which w^ent to make up and 
swell said supposed surplus, was erroneously levied on 
and collected from the taxpayers in the Annex and 
should be returned to them. 

Wherefore, It appears that there was no such amount 
of surplus for said fiscal year properly applicable to the 
sinking fund, but that the true amount of any "surplus" 



182 RESOLUTIONS. 

was only what would remain after deducting the 
amounts so illegally collected, and consequently the said 
payment over to the Commissioners of Finance of said 
sum of two hundred and sixty-six thousand two hundred 
and sixty-one ($266,261.62) dollars and sixty-two cents 
was and to that extent under said decision became 
erroneous; therefore 

Be it resolved by the Mayor and City Council of 
Baltimore, That the Commissioners of Finance be and 
they are hereby directed to return to the general city 
treasury so much of the said sum of two hundred 
and sixty-six thousand two hundred and sixty-one 
($266,261.62) dollars and sixty-two cents as may be 
necessary to refund to the taxpayers of the Annex the 
amounts which under the said decision of the Court of 
Appeals have been illegally collected as aforesaid; and 

Be it further resolved. That it shall be the duty of 
the Appeal Tax Court to examine into all claims for a 
return of taxes alleged by the taxpayers aforesaid, to 
have been paid in error, and if, upon examination by 
the Appeal Tax Court, it shall clearly appear that such 
claim or claims is or are well founded, and that the 
taxes have been paid erroneously, the said Appeal Tax 
Court may direct the Register, by order or orders in 
writing, to refund or repay the same, and shall reject 
all such claims as may be considered doubtful or not 
well founded, and said Register is hereby authorized 
and directed, upon receipt of said orders as aforesaid, 
from the Appeal Tax Court, to pay to the person or 
persons named in such orders the amounts respectively 
found to be due to them from the City of Baltimore by 
the Appeal Tax Court, after investigation as aforesaid.
