In 1827 the state of Maine issued a tax act, which delineated the amount of taxes that each town was responsible for paying to the state. The state of Maine determined that the town of Baldwin was responsible for $76.30 of the fifty thousand dollars in taxes that it was assessed the inhabitants of the state owed.
This tax act also lists exclusions and rules to include property to be taxed. Elias Thomas, the signer of this document, was the treasurer for the state of Maine from 1824 to 1827 as well as in 1829 and 1830.
