LOB AnKcloH, Cal., Aug. 29, ]()07. Mr. U. Shepherd, Pomona. California. Dear Sir: Your letter of the 22d IIIHI., asking Heveral questions In i-e- i?:trd to the operation of Ihe County Division Hill, Is at hand. One of these (pienllonH relates to the rteht of the new county, if or^anl/ed after thl.s yenr'H tnx(!H are (Udhupient, to collect the taxes of this year which are delinquent and unpaid at the time ol' Its organization. Section Id of the Act. 'Statutes of HIM", page L'XC) provides •IH I'ollowH: "After the creation of the new county as herein provided, its olIlcerH shall proceed to complete all procee;!- IIIKH necessary for llu^ asscHsment or collection of the slate and county taxes for the then current year, and nil nets and steps theretofore taken by the ofllcern of the old county or counties prior to the creation of tIn- new county shall be deemed and 'liken 'a,'! havimc been performed by Ihe otlleers of the new county for the benelll of the new county; and upon (he creation of (he new county It shall he the duty of the olllcers of the old county or counties to Immediately ewe- cute and deliver to the Hoard of Supervisors of such new county copies of all assessments or other proceed inns relative to the assessment and collection of the current state and county taxes of property In such new county. . . And the olllcials of the 'lew county are hereby authorized and directed to proceed thenceforth with i lie UHsenriincnt and collection of said taxes as If the proceedings originally had In the old county or counties had been oviHlnull.v had in the new county." I am of the opinion that in case the proposed new county li formed during the remainder of the year ISHiT. in-any lime before the sale lor delinquent 'axes of the year l!ltl7-S. Ihe effect of Hils provision will be to transfer to .I'c new county all taxes for the year ! liin7-S and not yet collected at the I lime when tlie organization of the new ; county is completed. This would in- j elude mil only taxes of th«- first In! bailment which might lie delinquent -il that date, bin also all such ponlons i i'f ihe second ii'tallment as h;rt not 1 been already paid.
