Since the 1800 Boston census records do not survive, the 1800 Boston tax lists, or "taking books," are particularly valuable. Additional information may include: occupation or employment status; mental or physical disability; whether "at sea"; and, sometimes, race or ethnicity. The original 1800 tax lists are held at the Boston Public Library's Rare Book Department. The database includes 4,648 records.
Other Massachusetts tax records databases include Boston, MA: Tax List of Boston, 1821; Boston, MA: Tax List of Boston, 1831; and Massachusetts and Maine 1798 Direct Tax.
