ONLY HALF OF AUTO OWNERS PAY TAXES WITHIN ALLOTTED TIME; OFFICE CLOSED MONDAY
Amarillo Daily News
December 31, 1922
Automobiles will be scarce on the streets of Amarillo tomorrow. Only one-half of the cars of Potter County have the new 1923 license plates—and drivers of the 2,500 that failed to secure plates before County Tax Collector Ben Golding closed his office last night will be subject to a fine if they get the "old boat" out on the streets.
The office of County Collector Golding was a busy place Saturday. One thousand automobile owners hurried to his office in a last-minute opportunity to pay the 1923 taxes and secure the new license, bringing the total up to 2,400 out of a possible five thousand.
The tax collector's office will not be open Monday, New Year's Day, making it impossible for delinquents to pay taxes before Tuesday.
A penalty automatically applies itself to tax payments that are overdue, in addition to the liability of a fine which the driver of the car incurs.
