Note:

The last entry above states the assessed value of real and personal property of Ulster County in the fiscal year 1716/7, and also reveals the tax rate on those assessments.

"Though property taxes were not unknown in the colonies, it was not until during and after the Revolution that this form of taxation became widespread....The earliest property taxes were on real estate, the standard either being quantity (acreage or lots) or assessed value. Next came luxury items such as body ornaments, silver and china, pianos, gigs, and carriages. Finally, almost all personal possessions were included - farm implements, household furniture, livestock, even pots and pans...."
