Notes / Description: 

Incomplete file; brief only. The town of Johnson City had recently changed its tax collection policy, exempting land used only for farming from being taxed in anyway other than for building and maintaining roadways. However, the city then attempted to tax property used for farm purposes. This brief cites many similar, precedential cases from other areas.
