The comptroller shall also, on or before February first in each year, transmit to
each county treasurer a statement of the amount, if any, necessary to be raised by
general taxation for state purposes in such county, which the comptroller shall apportion
in the same manner as the school tax, adding thereto any deficiency of the previous
year. The county treasurer shall lay the statements before the county board of taxation
of his county on or before February tenth in each year, and such board shall apportion
the amount required among the taxing districts, as provided in this chapter, charging
any deficiency to the deficient taxing districts. The taxing districts shall be liable to make good to the state and county any deficiency
arising from the default of their collecting and disbursing officers or otherwise,
and the counties shall be liable to make good to the state any deficiency arising
from the default of their respective county treasurers, by apportioning it in the
next tax among the taxing districts.
