FIRST TAX EXEMPTION FOR BAPTISTS AND QUAKERS IN AMERICA, BOSTON 1728, RARE
1726. For sale is a important piece of Americana. This was done before the creation of the U.S. when we were colonies to Great Britain. These exemptions really set the precedent for what was to come in the new country. "An Act to exempt person commonly called Anabaptists and Quakers from being taxed for and towards the support of Ministers" Boston 1728, Printed by Bartholomew Green. 12 pages, 401-412, Unbound, Part of "Acts and Laws of the General Court of Massachusetts-Bay, for May, 1728". Has tear that has been repaired, otherwise Good Condition. See pictures. This is the first tax exemption for Baptist and Quakers in the American colonies. This tax exemption was just limited to 5 miles from the church. This meant that Baptist and Quakers no longer had to pay taxes in support of the Congregational Churches within 5 miles of the church. The first full tax exemption for Baptist and Quakers came in 1732. 11 copies located on OCLC. Very Rare. I sold this exact same piece to a collector in Texas for $3K. He wanted to trade it for another one I found for 1732, so I received it back. Priced to sell. [Attributes: First Edition]
